  • Blog Post: Heather Hamilton has left the building!

    Tomorrow, officially. You know I couldn't leave without saying goodbye, my wonderful, invisible interwebz friends. It's been 12 years of hard work and 7 years of blogging. Seven years! I plan to pick up the blogging again, elsewhere; at least the personal stuff. Yeah, yeah, the Microsoft stuff stays...
  • Blog Post: Resume funkaliciousness...I like pink.

    OK, it's not for everybody. Or even mostlybody. However, this is fun. Bam! (More info on FastCompany here) I love novelty, when it doesn't interfere with practicality. What can I say...I am a practical gal. I think novelty and practicality can exist in harmony though. So here's what you need...
  • Blog Post: If I could do it all again, I'd do something different. But it still wouldn't be that.

    Sometimes I think about what would have happened if I majored in something else besides business in college. I mean, that business degree comes in handy-ish. An actual requirement to do my job? Not so much. I was in a training last week where we were calculating the net present value of a project. And...
  • Blog Post: The threat of the false positive by way of stupid pet tricks

    I'm always interested in other companies' interview processes. It helps me realize that some of the stuff we do really does feel like innovation to other companies even though it's just part of our regular process. I also realize that some of the things that work at a small company aren't going to hold...
  • Blog Post: Sustainability...

    FTW!
  • Blog Post: Growing pains

    Man, I hate medical metaphors. So I apologize for my pseudo-medical blog post title. And I ask Daniel Pink to stop using "sclerosis" unless he decides to get an MD (though I should say that I otherwise find him a very interesting writer). This article details the maturation of Google and the resultant...
  • Blog Post: Marketing awesomesauce

    Hova and Bing.
  • Blog Post: Twitter on my TV is much more interesting than the Twitter telling me what you had for lunch

    I'm generally a little disintersted in technology when it has a vague reason for existing. LinkedIn was something I couldn't see being important to users because connecting with people they didn't know seemed like an anonymous popularity contest. And the people in the lead were the ones liked least,...
  • Blog Post: Now this is where you have to get out of the binary thinking in your head

    Computer Engineer Barbie is making me 1) love the intention and 2) hate the medium. But I 1) love that the kids are excited and am 2) throwing up a little bit. And also 1) this is not the 1950s and 2) can we stop idealizing what it means to be a woman (clearly from the perspective of someone who finds...
  • Blog Post: Many Annoyed by Bad Cell Phone Etiquette

    As opposed to that good cell phone etiquette that delights. Oh jeez. OK, it's really just the title that is bad (just sayin since I have been a little critical in this category lately), because this study looked at what behavior people actually participate in themselves (people actually admitted this...
  • Blog Post: Oh how I wish...

    when picking a college major, I had indulged my right brain more than my father. Because I could totally be working here: This jealousy brought to you by FastCompany. Yeahawesomethanks. Oh, and speaking of design, someone at FC again (again!) needs to work on their web page design. Those green...
  • Blog Post: This survey brought to you by Twitter

    Sometimes I think the Interwebz are dumb. Or suveys are total BS. Someone is jumping to a causality conclusion when perhaps a little commons sense could be employed. Like maybe comparing the Twitter usage to other media, online and otherwise, than just some random message board. Giving student free...
  • Blog Post: Is the tech industry just getting weirder and weirder?

    SAP apologizes to Oracle? There's no crying in baseball and there's no apologizing in court.
  • Blog Post: Sometimes a salary bump is about something else

    You'd have to be living under a rock to not know about the Google salary bump reported this week : Google increases employees salaries by 10% with some other stuff thrown in. Sweet. It's not an entirely stupid move on Google's part because...wow, the PR response. Look, I would love to get a 10% salary...
  • Blog Post: Tech Titans Ridiculous Homes

    Oops. Did I just write that on my blog? I look at the homes of the top ten tech titans (by someone's standards) and I really wonder at what point "enough" transitions "into way over the top." OK, there are some steps in-between, but still. So, I will tell you a bit about my perspective so you get...
  • Blog Post: Ralph Nader and Full Body Scanners

    When I first read about this , I was thinking, well asking actually; "when can America get over its fear of nudity?" You know, if everyone stops making a big deal about it, then we could all just relax, for crying out loud. I get the concern about high levels of radiation. But I stand in front of...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft opening certification training center in Baghdad

    OK, now *this* is interesting . This kind of investment is a little different than I had envisioned when I thought of getting Iraq back on its feet. But it makes sense if... 1) There are people that are interested in technology but lack resources to enter the industry at all 2) People who have...
