Fighting Myself in Order to Keep My Zeo Sensor on My Head

Day 21 of 30 of Writing Challenge I think last night was my 4th or 5th night with the Zeo mobile sleep tracker. Each and every night during REM sleep I’ve had my sensor come off. At first I thought it must have fallen off while tossing and turning. However, I’m starting to suspect that […]

Less Sleep But Higher Score Than Before Zeo 76

Day 20 of 30 of Writing Challenge Last night was another fun night with the Zeo mobile sleep tracker. Here is the data from last night: Here is the sleep graph breakdown: I’ve been monitoring my sleep for the past 3 nights to see my sleeping habits. In 3 nights I’m convinced that this device […]

Does Invisalign Build Character or Make You Lazier?

Day 14 of 30 of Writing Challenge I’ve had Invisalign since March of this year or 7 months. The first few weeks of Invisalign was the most difficult time for me to get accustomed to them. The biggest surprise to me when I first got them was how I needed to have parts of my […]

I Suck at Speaking Authoratively

Day 10 of 30 of Writing Challenge I’m not sure the exact name for it. I call it speaking with authority. These are the times you need to speak in public, on camera, in a small group. It’s when eyes are all on you and you are doing more monologue than conversation. Recently I was […]

Patent Reform Act Reforms Nothing

Day 9 of 30 of Writing Challenge My recent soapbox issue is the state of software patent law in the United States. Most of it stemmed from a This American Life news story that investigated “When Patents Attack”. In others words when people and organizations use broad weak patents to extort money out of companies. The whole […]

Need to Go to Bed Earlier

Day 8 of 30 of Writing Challenge I think I need to change up when I write my posts. I like to write at the end of my day. So far I’ve stayed true. The only problem with doing it at the end of the day is that it’s 5AM in the morning and I’m […]

Why I’m Taking a Break from Facebook

Day 5 of 30 of Writing Challenge About a few weeks ago I made the choice to deactivate my Facebook account for 2 months. Half of it was on a whim, but the other half was out of curiosity. I wanted to see if I left Facebook if I’d miss it. Let me clarify and say […]

Techstars Reality Show: Tech Startups Simplified

Day 4 of 30 of Writing Challenge I finished watching the Techstars reality show by Bloomberg television. I have mixed feelings with the show. On the one hand I think it’s awesome that tech startups have their own medium to showcase what it’s like to build and launch a company. However, how the show turned out leaves […]

Do Penguins Who Steal Go to Hell?

Day 3 of 30 of Writing Challenge Today’s post is inspired by a YouTube video I found today. The video is a clip about male penguin nest building habits. In the video clip you learn that in order for male penguins to attract mates they have to build nests made out of rocks. It’s pretty […]

Software Patent Law Sucks: I Hate Companies Like Intellectual Ventures

Day 2 of 30 of Writing Challenge I finished listening to NPR’s This American Life episode about patent trolling today. You would think it’d be boring, but This American Life always manages to draw me into what you’d think be boring shows. The premise of this episode was the examination of how software patents and […]
