... it doesn't take a super sci-fi buff to see the potential implications of an Internet superpower and the American government operating out of people's homes hand in hand. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. Imagine having a serious love jones while trying to begin a new chapter in the world of technology. With the recent Internet chatter that has been surfacing about larger, more powerful Internet companies the book's message appears to be eerily relevant.
Here you go:
- " ... a great writing style, and I always appreciate a dose of subtle cynicism in anything I read."
- "The book was a humorous take on the corporate world, the stress, the relocation, the robot-type of requirement to fit it."
- " ... had me laughing out loud."

I typically don't use my website to profess my obsession with University of Louisville sports. But the end of the 2012 season is worth documenting, not only for me, but for the ridiculousness (Russdiculous?) involved.
In January, there was some discussion about attending the Big East Tournament.

Just for an instance, don't be a spam hater. You don't actually have to open anything in your inbox with "enlargement" in the title. Just play along for the simple fact of nostalgia.
After centuries and centuries of one-button mice, Apple has finally released a mouse with four buttons and a multidirectional scroll bar. No, I'm not kidding, it really did happen! It's called Mighty Mouse, and it works with both Macs and PCs.
One of my friends just bought a house. He isn't the first person I've ever known to buy a house, and I doubt he'll be the last. But he bought a house, and someone suggested I write a column about it, so here it is.
As many of you are aware, I'm in the process of writing my second novel. This novel is closely based on my experience in the business world, so I'm currently rifling through various books on that topic.
If people are really starting to get on your nerves (I mean, come on, how can they not?), and you are a great babbler, there is finally a simple alternative for you. And as always, that alternative can exist at your very own home, assuming you have a computer, Internet access and time to waste.
