As many of you know I don’t do mornings well. I’ve spent my life thinking “outside the box” (or with no box at all!) and so I always saw it as, “The early worm gets taken by the bird!”
Arthur C. Clarke is the well know science fiction writer who gave us such monumental stories as 2001 A Space Odyssey and Randevous With Rama, and lesser known, though equally important works like The Fountains Of Paradise. Many don’t know that he was actually a formally trained mathematician and scientist as well.

One of the most important contribution in the field of geostationary satellites may be Clarke’s idea that they would be ideal telecommunications relays. He advanced this prospect in a paper privately circulated among the core technical members of the British Interplanetary Society in 1945. It caused quite a stir including some severe criticism of Clarke’s credentials as a mere science fiction writer.
“What the heck is Blab?” a friend asked me the other day when I told him I was on Blab three times a week. Well, Blab is a rather appropriate name for a live-stream video social sharing platform where people sit around projecting their video image and blab. Well, they speak, share, present, and all other good things referring to communication but, when it comes down to it, yeah, they blab!
My new Wiz’s WP Website Boot Camp is a WordPress bootcamp with a difference. It is an up-to-date combination of online self-directed study content, downloadable materials, live-streaming real-time classroom sessions, and real engagement with the instructor (me!).
While not exactly the kind of robots envisioned by Isaac Asimov when he penned his Three Laws of Robotics, none-the-less robots are among us. They have worked their way into many levels of our society, from office mail delivery to heavy labor, from lab technicians to aircraft flight systems, and they are poised to slip into our everyday lives in even more places. Perhaps they are more akin to those foreseen by Alvin Toffler.
Do-It-Yourself SEO is said by many reputed expert SEO professionals to be a foolish undertaking. After all, to get in the top spots in the search engine return pages (SERPs) you need to keep current with the often modified search rules, or algorithms. SEO experts, involved daily in the process, can find it difficult to keep on the leading edge of changes.
At the risk of the dreaded duplicate content I will tug the tail of the Google tiger on this one, something I posted in another forum. I believe it worth repeating here and search engine indexing be damned.
I saw this statement in a facebook group the other day in response to someone asking to see the poster’s blog. They are marketing a product but also made this statement, “My blog is not published yet, so I can’t show you what I’ve done with it.” Beside the fact that this is probably a poor way to interact with prospective customers, it is just a bad way to begin social media marketing. Regardless of the state of your blog, or website, get it open to the public TODAY!
There’s a new gunslinger in town. Just down the road from Dodge City a spell. Out in the South Central town of Hutchinson. Kansas, that is. Not Missouri. It’s Hutchinson Kansas SEO. Right here in Hutch!
In a recent episode of the popular television series, Person of Interest, two of the characters utter Latin phrases. Authors and script writers like to have their little jokes and show themselves to be smarter than the average bear. They sometimes use this kind of thing to slip in a coded homage, or a pet peeve, or perhaps a personal favorite. Not many people today know Latin. Many don’t recognize it at all, just glossing over such phrases when they occur in books, television, or film. And so the writers have their laugh.
