I haven’t had much of a chance to write about Google. I don’t like Google. Unfortunately, like most people, I don’t have much of a choice. You have some alternate options for search engines and there are other email services you can use. However, if you develop mobile apps, you have no choice. You could write solely for iOS (which has its own set of problems), but you would limit the scope of who you can serve.Read the rest of this entry »

I have created a website focusing on the life of Gary Kildall. My hope is to unravel the unfortunate urban legends around one of the greatest software innovators of all time. Visit the Kildall Chronicles at http://www.kildall.org.

I’m Back!!Tuesday, May 29th, 2012
Okay, to the two people that remember me, hello!! I’ve decided that I’m tired of all of the pretenders having fun while I’m stuck with many years of past accolades. That’s why I’ve decided to return. I love to write, and I hope you love to read. I will be spending time over the next couple of weeks working on new content. In the mean time, please fell free to see what my site last looked like seven years ago before it went bankrupt.
