Easter

Found this post. Forgot to publish it, so I thought I’d share it now. We had an Easter Egg hunt after church

Checking to see if it has candy

Caulder went egg crazy. He got quite a few.

Bee went to a friend’s birthday party at the Taqueria

We had a death delete party. Cooked some brisket and had 20 – 30 people over. No big deal.

Values – In Work

I work for an organization that is values driven.

You may have some ideas of what that means already, so I’ll explain a bit to avoid any confusion. You see, we aren’t a not-for-profit organization. We’re a for profit business. “OK, so your’ value is making money?” No, not so much. I mean, we’re certainly profitable and we need to make money in order to keep doing what we do.

If God is a hacker, He likes to upgrade

I have a friend, John. John does some really cool things, he’s super smart, and he’s been very helpful in terms of thinking through technology. He wrote a book that you should read. I’m telling you this, because historically I haven’t thought about technology as broad as I do now. What I mean is that, by John’s definition, anything that was created by cultivating something else is defined as technology. This draws a point about grace when you think through the biblical narrative in Genesis. Continue reading “If God is a hacker, He likes to upgrade”
