Youngberg Winery Wedding

Youngberg Winery Wedding

So excited to be working with some great co-workers.   This one was a long day, and tough when the company had forgotten the base poles for the tent, the headless stakes, and 16′ poles for our lighting equipment.   Every day has some challenges, but I prefer tough work that requires quick thinking and perseverance.   I see a future. I want to be trained at Portland Art School.

The cyclical nature of the universe shows application within the browser industry, as it fluctuated between oligopolistic to competitive industry characteristics.

Things changed as Apple, Nokia, and Google hopped on to an open-source project, Webkit, a rendering engine that combined with V8 JavaScript engine and Android. The release of Android and Chrome initially created the ability for…

Well I know what you’re thinking… whomever invented the title must be ignorant, racist, a carbohydrate, or just plain stupid.  And you’re right!  I do love carbs but the term “Cracker” here is more related to decoding, you know like that movie with Tom Hanks? My name is @ForCarl (I know), @nd I will share my insights into technology with you, and while doing so take political, philosophical, economical, and cardinal jabs at our beloved U.S.A..  So strap in, get…

DIY or DIE | The Music Industry Squeeze

In a world of consumerism, where one’s utility is a function (or equation) of one’s income and the products x,y,etc that one is willing and able to consume, it is easy to only support the products most advertised to us.
