Rambling holiday Sunday…

My Amazon author page!!!!

Thank you to the Chicago Cubs organization for starting the June swoon early this year. It frees me up from having to watch baseball games in June. Actually the team looks better this year than last. They still need a couple of strong 6 or 7 inning pitchers to get them through a few more games without relaying on their bullpen so much. A couple more years and they could be pretty solid. (That is the mantra of a Cubs fan).

A friend posted a great copy and paste this on Facebook message yesterday.  It was a copy and paste this just because it asks you to copy and paste. The sad message was if you don’t copy and paste you hate bacon and puppies. I love bacon and puppies so I had to repost it. When did the social platform become the social justice platform? There are any number of “copy and paste” movements on Facebook and each contains a horrible and dire consequence if you choose to ignore it.

This month’s Indiegogo cool thing:


Scanadu Scout™ is designed to be a medical grade Tricorder using your smartphone and Bluetooth LE to emulate an Emergency Room in your pocket.

I acknowledge that I am a star trek geek. when it first came on as a rerun in 1975 I ran home from school every day to watch it. (sadly before there were VCR’s and DVR’s were were bound to the schedule the TV station wanted us to follow). This particular device is very intriguing because it offers a number of interesting things you can find out about yourself. Of course it is nearly a year from shipping but its pretty cool overall.

Its also the first really amazing project I’ve found on Indiegogo. There are a couple of other cool projects but I am looking for game changers on the two sites currently. This could be a game changer.
