There will be 4 stools. Rules - For the "hot seat" State an opinion that you believe is controversial - Respond to the questions with a story or experience... Continue reading

Today is Monday April 10th and I sit in the Reykyavik fish restaurant and start to put structure around my recent #EveFanfest experience. There were many moments that stick out in my mind still and this is as much to reinforce them in my own memory as to share them... Continue reading

Here's an old episode that I forgot to publish back in March. In this opinion piece from March, I review some of my thoughts on getting upset via Facebook, Twitter or text. And how that can come from an unrealistic expectation of how that message is received by the sender. Continue reading

Do you have an artistic endeavor that you actively do? For 47 years of my life I "was never good at art". I would laugh about the quality of my stick figures, and sometimes hope to complete a circle with the ends matching. And my handwriting is horrible (something I'm... Continue reading

I want other humans to realize that a focus on the external world with neglect of their own inner values breeds unhappiness in ourselves and others. I want people to look inwards to find Joy in their lives for when we improve our own inner values, we change the world. Continue reading

What is that one thing, that when you possess, you have all other virtues? Compassion. Definition of compassion - from "A fearless heart." Compassion is a sense of concern that arises when we are confronted with another's suffering and feel motivated to see that suffering relieved. Compassion is what connects... Continue reading

Thank you sir. Wait till my actions start bringing the change I want to see in the world. I'm only getting started.
On 12/10 I went to NYC and met one of the people who I “look up to” as a fellow human being – Seth Godin. I’d like to take a minute to document the things that I took away from the interactions and connections from the weekend in the hopes... Continue reading

Today I had an interaction with a kindergarten playground bully. He was 6, and came up and laughed at me for my painted purple toenails. He told me "I was a girl" and that he wanted to "stomp on my toes and make me cry." He was bigger than the... Continue reading

Today I touched my toes. That likely seems stupid to you, but to me it represents results from an oddly focused effort in specific areas. I'm a 48 year old sedentary ex IT manager who has been this way for YEARS. I've been as heavy as 238 in the past... Continue reading

Death and dying sucks. No amount of placation or words can remove that fact that death is one of the hardest things that we as a human will ever experience. While dying in Eve Online has very few consequences, death in real life is a bit harder of an emotional... Continue reading

Show Notes - Happy Halloween So Eve Vegas just happened and you weren't there. You'd like to know what happened and don't want to review hours and hours of videos, or scour all the written stuff… Well let me break it down for you - The community around Eve fucking... Continue reading

We come together into communities of likeminded people to build connections between 2 human beings. We strive to make these connections positive connections and sometimes we are even successful. In Eve Vegas I returned to a community that I'd been gone from for 3 years. I left Eve Online for... Continue reading

Hello curious soul, So you’re interested in a little more detail about Utopia42? It’s best described verbally, but I will try to put my paltry writing skills to use. I’m creating a whole new digital voice environment/society built on trust and incentivized on good behavior (or at least not exhibiting... Continue reading

I hear it all the time as an adult man. The traditional chauvinistic question - "what kind of man are you? Are you a tits man or an ass man?". And all the time I sit there and think "why do I have to pick one of the two?" Can't... Continue reading

I sit here tonight with my priorities in order. I have an "Ops deck" that's due tomorrow which I've done very little for and it will likely be a long evening. That's because over the past few days I've been changing behaviors at work and that's been having an impressive... Continue reading

There are a few times in you life where you really get to see the fruits of your labor. Today my 16 year old son and I got into an argument about some behavior that I didn't like and I asked him to stop. ... <long story intentionally omitted> ...... Continue reading

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to help you appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you... Continue reading

A spark. A moment of realization. When something that you'd been focusing on (making a conscious decision on) turns into a habit. There are times that should be recognized and rewarded where the hard effort you've undertaken finally becomes something you no longer have to spend time thinking on. Those... Continue reading
