  • Book Review: Stop Pushing Me Around

    Disclosure: I have known Ilise Benun professionally since 2004 when she spoke at the WorldWIT (Women in Technology) Camp. We have also worked together on a project or two.

  • Johnny Bunko

    I can’t take full credit for this post. I was reminded of The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You’ll Ever Need by Daniel H.
