Some Great Books on Technology

God, Technology, and the Christian Life Every year I wish I had read more books. Once i get into a book I'm good, but when i finish it takes me forever to get back into that groove of the "next" book. I tend to bounce from book to book until I find that next one.…

Thoughts on Feedly, Inoreader, and RSS Readers

I love the RSS feed and think it's one of the most powerful tools someone can use to filter and currate content on the web. It's also one of the most undervalued and underused options. Unfortunately on March 13, 2013, Google announced they were discontinuing Google Reader, stating the product had a loyal but declining…

On Apple’s Tribute to Steve Jobs One Year Later

Pulling into the Gate in Amsterdam Airport I remember landing in Amsterdam on October 5, 2011 after being in the air for almost 10 hours. I turned on my iPhone and AP news alerts started pinging my phone as happens when a "world event" takes place. I read through the Fox News, CNN, Sky News…

Nothing Motivates Writing Like a New Theme Design

I know to non-bloggers, writing a blog post about blogging is a kin to photographers talking about equipment (which we love to do), but to the rest of the world, it's... boring... that is unless you love photography, or in this case blogging. If you know WordPress, their mantra is Code is Poetry, and maybe…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

This was another very difficult topic this week from the Weekly Photo Challenge over at WordPress, and I decided to completely forgo the theological "wrong" since I covered one of those last week, and besides that topic is just too enormous to narrow down for this post. Since I'm such a huge fan of semiotics…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside, a MacBook 5,1

This post serves a few different purposes, like Day 239 of my Project 365, but once in a while I like to get something up there for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, and since this week's theme was inside, I thought this would make a great shot. I don't spend all of my days inside…

Sophistication Through Simplicity

I didn't just post a picture of a black square, this is actually my desktop. I love the clean, simple, and yet still very sophisticated... desktop, home screen, written code, verse, prose, lyric, file structure, office, room, company, house, life... etc (could be I like this so much because life in reality is actually very…

10 Reasons To Learn Social Media if You Are a Christian

I decided to start a series of sorts on social media and how we the people of the church body use, don't use, or outright diss the majority of the world at this point. I'm hereafter coining this series of sorts as the SMFT (Social Media, Facebook, and Twitter) discussion. Part of the necessity of…
