Book Review: Better and Faster

March 24th, 2015

I experienced Jeremy Gutsche at SXSW this year. I say experienced because he was a performer and I was pleased to have been on the first row of this performance. I walked straight from his session to the SXSW bookstore to purchase his Better and Faster book. I read it cover-to-cover in one day. Rather than espousing theory and principles for building businesses from ideas,…

Virtual Reality

March 22nd, 2015

I am not ashamed to embarrass myself, apparently. At the office on Friday, our digital team came together to experience Google Cardboard's virtual reality for the first time. I never thought I would enjoy the experience, or really even understand it. I was wrong. Though still not perfect, the experience was pretty cool. And fun. While most of our digital team members were reticent to…

Working Girl: Modern Day Trapper Keeper

July 29th, 2014

I come with a lot of baggage. My daily tote bag. My travels. And even to meetings. I say that I am high maintenance, but that I can maintain myself.

But given the fact that I take many, many pictures of my three dogs, BarkCam has become one of my favorite apps. First a bit about BarkBox: it is a…

Girl Gets Geeky: @LittleRockSW = Life-Changing Experience

April 8th, 2013

Last weekend, I participated in the first Startup Weekend Little Rock, and my first Startup Weekend ever. I joined this event with some trepidation: I am a bit of an introvert and I knew this was going to be a weekend that would require me to meet new people and form instant rapport to be able to work together for 54 hours. I also worried…

Girl Gets Geeky: Wearable Technology is Cool, but Not Stylish Enough

March 13th, 2013

The idea of tracking how much I move and sleep, keeping up with my heart rate and blood pressure, and being able to share that info if I choose, is appealing to my inner geek. ¬†Though I don't know what I will do with the data, I like collecting it, reviewing it and comparing it day-over-day. Last year at SXSW, I purchased my first Nike…
