Content

I create a lot of content. Here’s some of it.

Content That I Update

These are things that I keep adding to.

Reading List

My list of book reviews from Goodreads.

OMG That's a Fine Cheese Plate

I’ve been taking pictures of cheese plates for about eight years.

Blog Contributions

In the past, I’ve regularly contributed to a couple of blogs.

Articles from Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Very early in the history of the web, I used to edit and write for a James Bond fan site. In this capacity, I wrote a bunch of articles which I’ve started to re-format and re-publish.

Articles from CrossFit Sioux Falls

I did some blogging on the site of the local CrossFit gym. The posts are archived here.

Random Content

These are things that I wrote and don’t really change much.

The Long, Slow Death of Our Watering Holes

I wrote a meditation on Ray Oldenburg’s book “The Great, Good Place,” which is about the concept of public spaces and the role they play in our life. Boing Boing published it. The comments were extensive and thoughtful.

Activity Matrix

A graphic I made one day when I was struggling with a strategic decision that shows the relationship between value and execution.

Step Away From the Share Button

A one-page website I wrote in a fit of pique at people sharing stupid things on social media.

Ticket to Ride

My wife and I spent some time playing “Ticket to Ride,” and I jotted down some notes on strategy.

Christianity Maturity Model

I tried to create a “maturity model” for Christian faith. It may or may not be ridiculous.

Central Perk LEGO Set Build

I built the LEGO set of Central Perk from Friends. I did a photo essay of it.

How College Gets Paid For

We wrote this letter to one of our children while they were planning for college. I’m publishing it in case it might help other parents.

The Bible: A Word Count Analysis

In 2017, I did some number-gathering on the word counts of the books of The Bible, summarized here in a table.

The Semantics of COVID-19

An archived Facebook post, where I examined the semantics of the pandemic – what the words were we using actually meant.

An Anti-MLM Manifesto

Twenty years ago, I turned down some friends who were trying to get me to join a multi-level marketing business. I researched the concept for a week, and then wrote them a long email, which I’ve archived here. Two decades later, it’s still just as accurate as the day I wrote it.
