  1. Facebook...My rant. Sorry no Guitar content...but I felt compelled

    I have been sort of majorly focused on Facebook for awhile. *I still haven't seen the movie but I think that I have been watching in the last week the making of the sequel in real time …Social Network 2…this time starring Michael Douglas (Wall Street 3)….It could be called The Elephant in the Room…or the Emperor Has No Clothes……

  5. Float like a Butterfly....sting like a bee

    I am a card carrying entrepreneur.

    America was built on the backs of passionate entrepreneurs. Every success story, publicly traded company and institution today started as entrepreneurs and somehow lost their way. Here is my perspective.
