The Future of Work

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment.
Warren G. Bennis, University of Southern California professor of business administration; adviser to Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy

And History Repeats Itself – PBS & NEA Funding

I’m constantly reminded that most of what I consider new is actually old, repetitive phenomenon. And once again, I was proven right. Watch this incredibly relevant 1969 video of Mr. Rogers defending against a proposed PBS funding cut and read more over at Open Culture:

Creative Woodworking

My dad had a lifelong love of woodworking. Evidence of his craft filled my childhood homes. So I was happy to see a focus on traditional Japanese marquetry, or yosegi-zaiku featured over on the Open Culture website.

After moving out on my own for the first time, I did as […]

And while the summer temperatures remain much the same, there is a stark difference in the writing community.

Already, I’ve attended […]

It’s Alive!

Some argue that the bane of every writer’s existence is the butt in chair part of getting things done. And, it’s true. All that we do stems from sitting down at the keyboard (or more recently, fountain and Levenger notebook), and pouring those words down.
