Here's a random sampling of some articles I wrote for my blog. Call it designing with words.
The battle for all of your cloud-based needs is heating up! I’m not surprised, and say bring it on! Up until now, the convenience of online storage was a costly one. That’s all changing now!
What started off as a routine customer complaint via tweet, turned into the greatest “oops” in the history of Twitter. How do you respond to a passenger angry about ignored tweets?

If Shakespeare were alive today, what do you think he’d have to say about today’s literacy? All of these LOLs and OMGs, hashtags and 140 character snippets.
