The Creator Conundrum
This week, I'm talking about Creator Mode and what it's going to do to LinkedIn and my own journey learning to accept the inevitable. No nerdy stuff, just a bit of excitement over the feature now being available to everyone.
The Canine Nourishment

The Geekier Edition
What does Teen Titans have to do with this week's edition..we'll you'll have to read it to find out. It's definitely a geekier edition than last week. I blame the lack of internet access.
The Outdoor Development
