  • Windows 10 Launch

    Last week I attended the awesome Windows & Devices Group scavenger hunt at Seattle’s EMP Museum. One of the exhibits there featured the amazing work of Chuck Jones, an animator, cartoon artist, and more from Spokane Washington. I grew up watching Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Road Runner cartoons on Boomerang, and it was pretty cool to learn more about the man behind them. At the exhibit, there was one of his quotes on the wall:

    All great endeavors are 90% hard work and 10% love and only the love should show

    I’ve been running Windows 10 since day 1 of my internship, through the good builds and the bad (builds are just versions of the OS). It’s come a long way in the two months I’ve been here and I’m very excited for its road ahead.

    Windows 10 releases today. My hope is that only the love shows.

  • Raspberry Pi Console Cable

    Where have you been all my life.

    That’s how this cable makes me feel. Let me show you a magical cable that allows you to log into the Raspberry Pi shell from your computer, be it Windows, Mac, or Linux. If you are connecting to a Raspberry Pi 1 model, then this is all you need. For the Raspberry Pi 2, you will need an external power supply to power the Raspberry Pi, as the console cable does not supply enough power.

  • Microsoft 2015 Summer Internship

    I am very excited to announce that I will be joining Microsoft’s Core Group this summer. I do not know what specific team I will be working with, but I hope to work in their Internet of Things or Windows OS groups.

  • Why Technology and Liberal Arts?

    Through secondary school I loved all of the subjects. But inevitably, there were days where homework was not what I felt like doing. On these days, I found myself using homework from one subject to avoid the homework from another. Math would trump Spanish, and Spanish would pummel English. While eventually it all was all complete, I enjoyed watching as my interests became apparent in my decisions.

  • Meatless January

    During January 2014, I will not be eating meat. More specifically, I will be a lacto-ovo-pescetarian, meaning I will still consume dairy, eggs, and fish. When I first indicated interest in this at the end of 2013, I received mixed reactions. Some strongly for, others neutral, and a surprising amount of people who were strongly against. I want to begin this discussion by explaining why I am doing this and will conclude with an explanation for the responses I received.

  • If I had Glass

    I don’t think I’d wear it very often. Don’t get me wrong, it looks awesome, like when science-fiction meets reality. When the price decreases significantly, which it’s expected to this year, it will be hard to ignore. It’s clear Google and other tech companies want to lead us into the future with Glass and other “wearable electronics,” but I’m not sure it’s the future I want.
