CAN THE SOCIAL WEB SOLVE THE GLOBAL CORPORATE DIVERSITY CHALLENGE?

Something about their communication engaged me. I usually lag on messages sent through LinkedIn because there’s an extra step to reply. Something about this email said you’re a fool if you don’t at least look at this content. And then they appeared in my gmail, where I prefer to interact. Why didn’t they send it […]

BEHIND THE WIZARD

Few regular people understand the back office of technology. They rant and rave about their app not doing this or their mobile device not doing anything on that website. They are uninterested in what it took to make it do any of those things in the first place, and the complex relationships that fire and […]

  It’s natural that I would take stock of my time in Seattle on the day of my departure. It’s been an impactful trip. I am glad my reintroduction to the United States was in a city I didn’t know well. I could say hello to my country with a fresh perspective. With the same […]

There is so much technology dancing on my laptop that sometimes while everything is loading I see the screen jiggle a little bit. Whether in terror or anticipation I can never tell. Technology is being hurled at me constantly. I’m applying for these writing gigs that challenge me to have perfect grammar or else and […]
