The Hemp Plant

From all the cardboard we use in shipping, I decided to chase a rabbit down the hole in search of a new idea for a renewable resource and came across so much more!

All Hallow's Eve

Happy All Hallow's Eve, or Halloween to those celebrating! A time to get spooky and commune with the dead. Or is it just a time to eat candy and dress up in sexy costumes?

I purchased an album recently that came with a digital download version of it. What's to stop me, outside of legal ramifications of sharing this? What options do us of no record company deals, or other industry backed endorsements have to become heard? Can we make money from our art?

Right to Privacy

The prevelance of video doorbells is on the rise. Where does home security and one's right to privacy collide?

With all those Machine Learning Algos, how does that effect our search results? Is there room for abuse by companies or persons?

Bananas and Miliues

I feel that the current state of the banana plant is a worth metaphor for the state of some of journalistic sources and things we may want to be wary of.

There's been a drastic rise in homelessness across the country. I share some local examples, and other ideas on how to at least get the ball rolling for a good outcome.

Adulting

There's a new "Adulting" class available in Maine to teach you how to be grown up. Do we really need such a class?

After Work Activities

A Seattle Police Officer was recently fired for smoking pot during off duty time. Marijuana is a Schedule 1 drug, while there are other drugs that are under Schedule, alcohol and nicotine aren't included. Why are some forms of self medication bad over others?
