Big in Small Tech Correspondent: Me

I’ve been a busy bee this month, and in addition to what I’ve been doing here, I’ve written quite a few articles for Suzuki Europe’s Big in Small website at as their technology correspondent.

Here’s some of the articles I’ve written in January – I hope you enjoy them. Let me know!

  • The Stats of Life – What is it about statistics that makes a geek jump for joy? I talk about some great sites to start collecting, organizing and analyzing your life’s statistics
  • The New Age of Patronage – Centuries ago, patronage referred to the act of kings or important figures like the Pope sponsoring artists or musicians for the creation of their art. Now, we all can be patrons, with small money but without inauguration. A great site that puts patrons close to the arts is
  • Google Wave – Google Wave has introduced a ripple in the way we collaborate. Six months ago, when it was previewed, it seemed like a very intimidating service with the promise “to communicate and collaborate in real time.” I talk about the differences between Wave, email and wikis, and some suggestions to get you started using Wave.
  • The Internet in Times of Tragedy – The Internet has changed us profoundly, from how we seek information to how we react in times of tragedy. Especially in the wake of the Haiti earthquake, we have more options and ways to react. Here are some of them.
  • Apple, our modern-day oracle? – When Apple makes a move, it sends shock waves in every direction. Why do we feel the need to speculate on what Apple’s doing? How Apple’s moves affect our hope and imagination about the future.
  • Ebook Format War: There Will Be Blood – There is a war going on. A war for a format. And until there is a universal format for ebooks, the consumer will be the first to lose. But many companies will lose, too. An update on the war for a universal ebook format.
  • Solving the Babel Problem – Translation services are trying to make the citizens of the world just a little bit closer – If we can’t have a universal language, Google Translate wants to make communicating as seamless as possible.
  • Tackling Indecision: Automate Destiny – Sometimes the most difficult thing about making a decision is not the result, but the process of making it. These decision and recommendation websites like, Yahoo! Answers, Let Simon Decide and want to take the place of your best friend in the decision-making process.

Portland! It was super quick and full of meetings with lovely colleagues as I head back to work soon, and so much delicious #espresso. I have to get back here so, so soon to properly see the city.
Just posted the template I use for year-end reflection and goal setting. Let me know if you end up using it! Link in profile. #goals #goalsetting #newyearsgoals
Happy New Year! Traditional first #espresso of the year to start things off. This is the time of year I do some reflecting back and planning for what’s ahead (with’s starting to get crowded in here). I’ll share my template this week so you can reflect and plan, too. #2020
Happy December! I am a happy advent calendar addict...anyone else? Showing off two (but there are more...) - one is an amazing handmade calendar to replicate one I grew up with (thanks @julienicolesanders!) & a lovely edible advent calendar from @dandelionchocolate I’ve been coveting. #adventcalendar #adventaddict
It takes a village! Or at least 3 to watch 2 under 3 so 1 can cook! #Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday and meal, glad I was able to pull it together this year and cook for family! On the menu a turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, honey glazed carrots, savory butternut squash (from the garden) and cranberry sauce of course. Happy to you and yours! ❤️
When people wait in line for ramen in a mall at all hours, you gotta try it. Braved the line for @ramennagiusa with @marshmelones and a cooperative 3-month old and it was delicious! #ramen
