Forbes’ predictions for technology strategy in 2015 aren’t so out of the box for what they’re foreseeing, and are sort of predicting themselves. They project computing will be everywhere and it all rides on the user’s experience. Isn’t that really what it’s been riding on all along? The trend of computing being everywhere, well, that’s not a surprise is it? I predicted that in 2012.

The Internet of Things (IoT), what does that even mean? Basically, if something has an on off switch then it can be an IoT. It’s something that can be controlled via the Internet. Think of cable television or satellite TV. You can log into your account and set a TV show to be recorded and literally be thousands of miles away from your television. How about starting your car via the Internet? Or, turning on home security and locking the doors? Viola, IoT is born.
I like Forbes’ idea that 3D printing is on the verge of getting cheaper. Cheaper is always a good thing when it takes less money out of a pocket and it doesn’t mean something is “cheap”. Forbes predicts this trend will have the biggest affect on the pockets of consumer applications, biomedical industry and industrial sectors. Hopefully, more money in their pockets will trickle to more money in the public’s pockets. Read it all…

When I was a kid I loved so many sports. I loved playing rough and being competitive. My favorite was softball; I played 1st base for a league in Lyons, Ga. and on Newnan, Ga.‘s First Baptist Church’s team. I loved it! They called me stretch cause at 4′ 11″ I would extend myself like those tall girls! Ha! I was going to catch that ball and my foot was NOT leaving that bag! The young girl in this picture reminds me of my days of hanging in a bull pin.
When I had kids they caught my love bug of sports. My son more than my daughter though. Stephanie dabbled in Lacrosse, and Josh pitched in Little League and even got scouted. My boy had one heck of an arm! I was so proud of him! Unfortunately girls entered the picture and he lost interest. Now that he’s married however, he’s on a softball team and loving it again. Nothing like being a part of a team and feeling that strong team spirit and the bond that comes with it. So much learned from such a great experience. Discipline, structure, expectations, punctuality, reliability, hard work pays off, if you want to be good at something it takes practice, and so many more valuable lessons to use in life. Yep! There’s more!
Standing Taller. My footsteps are lighter.
What an ELATED WONDERFUL FEELING!
I. Dream. In. Color.
Some day soon. I will write my story. Be ready for it. It’s a powerful one.
