I took my daughter prom dress shopping last weekend. I know, most of you think I must be nuts (hence my blog name) but it was actually a lot of fun. That’s not saying I like shopping; I like clothes shopping even less. My daughter is a senior in High school and heads off to college next year, so it was a great chance to spend time with her, and even do a little bonding. Thankfully we weren’t alone; she brought her best friend along with her. We spent six hours at the mall, looking in department stores and apparently stores that were made just for prom. The good news is I was just color commentary and responsible for photos. If all of us liked a dress we sent the photos to mom.  [click to continue…]

I was driving to work this past Wednesday and it hit me; I was only going to make this trip 2 more times. Every morning I get in the car, switch to Waze on my phone and it pops up a message asking me if I’m going to work. Of course, I hit yes, and […]

ResearchKit & Apple – What they can teach the Enterprise

March 11, 2015

I was probably 16 or 17 when we realized that my Grandmother had issues. She had hit another defenseless parking meter. It was just standing there minding its own business when boom, out of nowhere it was knocked down for the count. Now this was the age of the classic boats, you know, the Oldsmobile […]

Enterprise mobility, stop treating the symptoms

March 6, 2015

I had the distinct pleasure of getting together with one of my best college buddies a few months ago. We hadn’t seen each other in quite a few years, both of our faults, and yet it took less than a minute to slip into old habits and patterns. It was actually a business meeting we […]

Are Enterprises mobile yet?

October 24, 2014

I spend a lot of time talking about mobility. To be fair, it’s part of my job. Yet, it’s disheartening at times to look around and see that most people don’t get it. They know that enterprises have to do more then hand out mobile devices. They need to have a mobile strategy that is […]

The Four Pillars

October 14, 2014

Robert F. Kennedy said, “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” It’s among the scores of failure quotes meant to encourage us to take chances and turn our defeats into victories. Daring greatly in the app world is important, but it doesn’t mean that you have to fail or suck into order […]

Balancing security and usability

September 5, 2014

I spend a lot of my time talking about mobility and enablement. When I’m not doing that the talk usually turns to security. So I had to pause today when someone asked me how do you balance mobility and security. I didn’t really understand the question. Why were people worrying about balancing mobility and security? […]

Infosec Doesn’t have to be a Four Letter Word

August 28, 2014

I wrote earlier this week about Identity and Access Management (IAM) and how it’s important for Infosec (Information Security) to be involved with projects early. The post generated a few comments and some commentary on twitter, mostly from Infosec folks. Some complained I was too harsh on Infosec (I wasn’t) while others worried that I […]
