New Role for Mhass

So I finally rolled off my last gig, which had occupied me for the last 18 months.  In the last 18 months, I learned a lot about how my customer did business, and thanks to a great account team, learned how Microsoft does business. I liked the business aspect of the job a lot, enough…

Transformers, go see it!

The red and blue cab of an 18 wheeler rolls into the center of the dark alley with led’s and  lights blazing, Autobot logo right on the grill.  A bunch of spinning and servo sounds accompany the all too familiar whah-whah-whah-kuk sound of Transformer transformation.  Everyone knows that it is Optimus Prime, but as soon as he…

Thank you: Steve Irwin

I have been on vacation for the past few days, but have been inundated with information about Steve Irwin’s death.  For my family, this was very sad news as we have watched many of his shows and appearances since the late 90’s.    Many of the comments from people have been comical from “you knew…

Zidane: Anger Management

What a bummer that someone like Zinedine Zidane went out on a bad note.  I prefer not to think of him as a bad guy, as much as having a bad day.  He has had a career worthy of Pele, Maradona, Ronaldo, Beckham or Ronadinho and deserves his head up on the “Mt. Rushmore” of…

Worldly (Cup) Views

I was just catching up on some of my reading and saw several people mentioning that they read Al Gore’s  “An Inconvenient Truth” book.    Scoble even went so far as to describe editorials he wrote in college about raising gas taxes by several dollars to encourage Americans to buy smaller cars and get car companies…
