-50F With Wind Chill. Escape to ITEXPO in Miami

January 24, 2011

You know I would never stoop to reminding you about the weather to persuade you to attend what I believe to the be the best tech and telecom conference in the world - OK, maybe I would.

So I was driving along this morning on the way to work and noticed I couldn't feel any of my fingers. I decided to check to make sure I was wearing gloves. I was. Then I realized I couldn't feel any of my toes and yes I had shoes on.



I then looked at the temperature reading and it said one degree.





Communications Expert Ricca Discusses the Future & ITEXPO Appearance

January 18, 2011

One of the great advantages of attending a live conference is the ability to network with some of the brightest minds in the industry such as analysts and other industry thought leaders who help give us a sense of where markets are heading. The tech space is not slowing down from an innovation perspective – and it certainly isn’t going to see less product introductions in the future. How do you determine how the latest products and solutions can help your business? Is the cloud right for you or is an on-premise system a smarter move based on your security and compliance needs?

Stop the Spending Before it is Too Late

October 29, 2010

There is a simple fact that every American knows but many are scared to confront - our government is spending us into near-bankruptcy. Every dollar which we have to borrow to spend adds to the problem.

Other countries who have done the exact same thing have seen hyperinflation where the value of the money decreases so fast you have to rush to the store to spend your paycheck because if you don't, it will buy half as much or less a few days later.

One example of hyperinflation due to the government printing too much money was in the Weimar Republic less than a hundred years ago where as Wikipedia points out the money was so worthless, it was used as wallpaper!

This situation led to the Nazi takeover of Germany which launched a new currency called the Reichsmark where one of these new notes was issued in exchange for 1 billion of the Weimar Marks. When this happened, prices were reduced by 12 zeros!

There is an incredible ad which details how countries like China are taking over the US by becoming the country which loans us money which we in-turn waste. This is the same money spent on various stimulus plans that have created far less jobs than projected if any net jobs at all.



To keep the ad above running on TV where I just saw it, be sure to immediately contribute to Citizens Against Government Waste.

The election next week is a choice between continuing to borrow money and spend it on wasteful projects and raising taxes on all of us to pay for it all - or a return to a smaller government which allows its citizens to prosper by implementing common sense regulation and a more stable and steady business environment.

Having said that - the Republicans and Tea Party are expected to win many seats.

Acetaminophen Kills Snakes - Who Knew?

October 1, 2010

As a reptile fan I was surprised I didn't know this fact which could be very useful the next time you play Trivial Pursuit - Geek Edition. In turns out acetaminophen kills snakes and moreover the U.S. Department of Agriculture is bombing the island of Guam with drugged frozen mice to rid the island of brown tree snakes which are venomous and grow quite large - ten feet long in fact.

You realize this means there is a person somewhere whose job it is to feed Tylenol to mice?

Turns out the mice will be outfitted with wings and streamers - in an effort to get them caught in tree branches so the snakes will quickly dine on them and die.

No word yet from PETA on all of this but expect them to have Pam Anderson covered in frozen mouse fur in an upcoming issue of your favorite magazine in protest.
