I'm constantly amazed by the power a good idea has over people, the inspiration it creates, and the satisfaction of seeing it come to life... as difficult and rare as that might be.


The NRC initiates a review of radioactive wristbands

The NRC initiates a review of radioactive wristbands

February 12th, 2014

I received an email from the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission today that states they are “reviewing the information you provided to determine what NRC follow-up activities will be conducted”.

Radioactive wristbands

January 4th, 2014

I have been consulting for a company involved in the alternative health “negative ion bracelet” business. I’ve also been working with them to produce a silicone bracelet for my own company (ironically called Dangerous Things) that has an RFID tag embedded inside. I chose to work with this company because I liked their style of […]

The best wireless headset I've ever owned

The best wireless headset I’ve ever owned

October 17th, 2013

I’ve dicked around for years trying various wireless headsets for my computer, and it’s never ever been a good reliable experience. Ever. I gave up on the whole idea of a happy wireless headset experience, until someone cleaning out their office just gave me their old headset. It sat in a pile of junk for […]

Pay as you go cell service that's cheaper than your "plan"

Pay as you go cell service that’s cheaper than your “plan”

August 31st, 2013

This whole thing started because I’m in a situation where my spouse doesn’t want a cell phone. She uses Google Voice to text with myself and her friends, but this only works when she’s at home on her laptop, not sitting in the car on the side of the road or standing in an empty […]

Northside Coldcreek boots are amazing

Northside Coldcreek boots are amazing

June 6th, 2013

Spring and summer usually means yard work and drudgery, and this year was no different. I went to my garden shed to get my trusty rubber boots and found that one of them (just one) had cracked to pieces. I thought it was odd that one would appear to kind of, well, “dry out” and […]

Review of Montie Gear 13.56MHz field detector

May 17th, 2013

I had a chance to review the 13.56MHz RFID field detector from Montie Gear and I have to say, I like this detector. It’s very thin, somewhat flexible, and is the size of a credit card so it fits in my wallet.

Here I come again Amsterdam...

Here I come again Amsterdam…

March 4th, 2013

I love the internet. Thank jebuz I’m alive during such an amazing time… truly the dawn of a new age. I’ve been working on an amazing product development project with some fine chaps in the Amsterdam area… and the amazing thing is, we’ve never met in person. I know this is commonplace these days, but […]
