A National Week of Remembrance
I live about 10 minutes away from Columbine High School. 24 years ago on April 20, 1999, two individuals killed 13 people and then themselves. The day is sacred here in Colorado and the high school along with a few others do not have school on that day. They instead have a ‘Day of Service’.…
Behind every video is an editor who had to watch and rewatch the horrors of an event.
TEDx Mile High 2017
I should start off by saying ‘long time, no blog’ but that would just be strange. I do write all the time but it’s for my sports blog SidelineSignals.com and soon you will see my stuff on CollegeFootballNews.com. Anyway, this one is about TEDx Mile High 2017 and the things I took away. So yes,…

The Inescapable Now

Governments suing companies to open up security features, a new documentary looking into how our world is wrapped in hackable code, sprinkled in some drones strikes decided by big data and it’s straight armageddon out here right now.

The Leader of the Defense
Having to inflict change on the federal government’s largest organization.
When Ted Koppel speaks we listen. We hope he’s wrong but what happens if he’s not?
