My Writings. My Thoughts.
It was announced today that Mark Zuckerberg is the 2nd largest charitable donor in the U.S. Warren Buffet is the 1st – Mark’s in good company.
Mark has been actively involved in Philanthropy. You may remember he donated $100 million to the Newark New Jersey School District. It is rumored that he hangs with Chris Christie. When you donate $100 million to one of the state’s school district you can socialize with the governor.
According to DailyMail.UK Mark and his wife Priscilla Chan gave $498 billion to charity. Not too shabby.
With their enormous wealth they can and will make a difference. It’s nice to see. Do you think they were inspired by Bill Gates and his wife?

I wanted to make the smaller more condensed version of P.M.S because the story itself was so potent that in 12 pages people would be captivated and want to see more. Who am I kidding, I just didn`t have the money to do the full length. I sold my just paid off car new car, bought a 2000 Honda Prelude, and put the rest of the money in the bank to make this happen. It was going to be a small budget but a budget non the less. Then, life happened again. I had gotten word that my spouse and I had the opportunity to adopt which costs money. Adoption was another dream I had. My small budget went to micro budget because it got cut in half. Luckily, I was was prepared for the shoot mentally and the possible adoption.
With the micro budget came changes. Jo Sparkes, my writing editor and teacher helped me be able to handle the dreaded rewrite. Things had to change to fit the budget. I loved my story and didn`t want it to change. The story didn`t have to just some aspects for financial reasons. Jo’s book “Feedback, How to Give it How to Get it,” was a good reminder that having to change should not be taken personal. There is a difference in changing something because you “feel” you want to and shit I have to. Here I could walk away and keep my story as is, and as it is never get made. I could make some changes and watch it grow.
So, the flying back and forth from Phoenix to Los Angeles for planning with Jeff at Rigler Digital began. At the same time, the flying back and forth from Phoenix to San Francisco for a possible adoption began. I was racking up the frequent flier miles.

With the new Windows 8 OS it is completely different from previous Windows 7 and Vista XP. It is radically different.
1st it’s made for touchscreen interface along with keyboard or mouse. It’s a game changer. New programming is needed to run the OS correctly and Windows has their own Windows Store -Apps available mostly free. There aren’t many at this time but more programmers will start creating to fill this need.
Windows 8 Start screen: After entering your password you get a very different start screen. Microsoft calls this start screen Modern UI meaning Modern User Interface. It’s a tiled screen with each tile showing different information like weather, stock market, etc. With each installed app comes a new tile. With click and drag you can arrange the apps as you see fit.
Completely different right? Here’s an interface that allows you to see multiple apps running at the same time. My iPad can’t do that.
Windows 8 Charm Bar: With a swipe of finger in the right edge will activate it. Mouse click in bottom new hot corners to activate also. Here search, share, start devices, and settings.
The new interface is clean and elegant. I can’t help but think that Windows was inspired once again by Apple’s iOS. Windows is trying to catch up to Apple. Either way it’s beautiful interface and makes you feel that it is indeed 2012.
MS DOS anyone?

65% of the mobile market is using iOS. This includes iPad, iPhones, and iPods. (According to AppleInsider) Google’s Android platform came in 2nd with 19%.
Doesn’t blackberry seem dated now? Almost embarrassing to admit using one. Their Symbian came in at 1.49% guess a majority gave up CrackBerry. I remember my first BlackBerry about 5 years ago and thinking how great it was for email. Ugh the web browsing back then an absolute chore.
Apple’s iOS on the iPhone and iPad put an elegance to web browsing again. Of course they are crushing their competition Apple’s iPad make’s up 95% of the tablet market. Even though Amazon has Angry Birds on Kindle it just can’t compete. Well for now that is I wouldn’t underestimate the growth potential or Jeff Bezos.
You’re reading this now on your iPhone or iPad – possibly. The mobile market is huge — Apple just does it better.
What happened in Aurora Colorado was tragic, actually tragic doesn’t do what happened justice. I would say there are no words to describe what happened. A deafening silence.
Batman was always about a hero who was a man that experienced tragedy in childhood and turned tragic events into a positive thing. He became a superhero. Batman. Batman was the hope that if with enough martial arts training and enough money you too could keep your city safe from crime.
What from Batman could have inspired James Holmes to cause a massacre? The media has jumped on the Joker character as his inspiration. I don’t see it. This young man was deranged clearly if it wasn’t this movie it might have been the Avengers or why not The Green Lantern. He was looking for a blockbuster and a captive audience to unleash his terror.
Comic book movies at this time just happen to be the biggest blockbuster movies in history. James Holmes took advantage of that. To blame The Dark Night Rises is the same as blaming the gun he was holding. James Holmes is psychotic and the blame lies solely on him.
