The Power of Myth

Although I am currently reading “The Power of Myth”, which is essentially the transcripts from the outstanding 1988 PBS six-chapter TV series, in which famed journalist Bill Moyers interviews, mythologist Joseph Campbell, this will not be a book review. Instead, Campbell makes a savvy case as to why marriages fail, today. Read moreRead more


Build an Enterprise Wiki

Wikis have been around for over a decade. Dur­ing this time they have proven to be an ex­treme­ly use­ful tool for many or­ga­ni­za­tions and the in­ter­net at large. Wikipedia.​org is one of the top ten web­sites and the poster child of what a suc­cess­ful wi­ki should be. Read moreRead more

Isn’t simply amazing how powerful a force, love can be? On many occasions I have stated that love is, in fact, the strongest force in the universe. And why do I say that? Simply put, while building this humongous and incomprehensible universe… Read moreRead more

And she used to talk to him too. As for talking to him, while visiting with her, I have to say that I did too. In fact, I used to try to mimic his sounds and he… Read moreRead more
