It’s hard to explain puns to kleptomaniacs because they always take things literally.

50 People On ‘The Most Intellectual Joke I Know’

I’m trying something a bit different. Rather than publishing top-of-mind brain farts, I’m going to move to what I’m calling a “magazine format”. Basically, I’ll bunch up a collection of posts and publish them on a specific editorial cycle. Each edition may or may not contain regular sections, such as a collection of photos. I’ll also try to include a table of contents with a few editorial comments to go with it.

I’m shooting for each edition to be released at 6:00am Pacific Time on Saturdays. I don’t know yet if it will be weekly, biweekly or monthly. We’ll see how much content I can produce.

Here’s what’s in this edition…

Eastern Oregon Scenery 10 Photos – These are some shots from a recent bird watching trip to Eastern Oregon. I captured over 900 images on that trip so expect to see more in later editions. These are from the trip to Burns, Oregon.
General Business Structure General Business Structure – This is part of my continuing ponder on the nature and structure of a business. It does a better job, in my opinion, of accounting for business intelligence and the role of strategy.
IoT Conceptual Framework Speaking of the Internet of Things – My conceptual framework for thinking and talking about the pieces and parts of a network of things.
Surprising solar projection by respectable organisation Surprising solar projection by respectable organisation – Ian’s observations on a report from the Fraunhofer Institute.

Fabulous Wealth

Woohoo! So far I’ve earned $0.82 on my affiliate sales through Amazon. I think I’m going to submit my retirement forms first thing Monday morning. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of my loyal shoppers. I couldn’t have done it without you. 🙂


Technical Log – Blogging and Affiliates

I have a lot of motivations for wanting to create a blog. One of them is to explore the technology. This includes tying into affiliate programs, such as Amazon’s, to see how they work. If I talk about a particular product and it’s available from Amazon or some other source, I’ll include a link. If my amazingly persuasive powers convince you to buy the product then I may make a few cents. That’s not the point for this blog. I’m just trying to see how things work.


My Blog

I’m entering into the world of blogging and this is my first (well, sort of first) post.  I’m two days into my 2013 sabbatical and this is one of the things that I wanted to do during this time.

I fully expect that not everyone will care about the things that I post here.  That’s for you to decide.  I will work on making it as easy as I can for you to find the content that you’re interested it.  As a blanket policy though, the reason I do a blog is to get feedback. Please post your thoughts and opinions and don’t just lurk.
