Thanks in advance for your insights.
*For the Digital Era Thinkers blog on…Continue

Last week, I heralded the wisdom and brilliance of my father. While I still hold that my father eats lightning and discharges marble, he was never alone. Those who know me well, understand that there is absolutely no way that one person alone could have parented me. It took a village... and a…Continue
This past weekend, my family and I celebrated my father's 70th birthday. For those of you who don't know me well, my parents are included in my Pantheon of heroes right next to the person who invented Twizzlers.

The five-year-olds on the baseball field deserve better. At least that’s what I told myself as I walked off the field last night. The game ended in a tie, of course, as all games at this age do given we don’t count outs and runs, but my feeling of failure last night as a head coach had nothing to do with the game result.
