Innovation Meets Invention: A Review of The Innovators by Walter Isaacson

The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution by Walter Isaacson Book Review

I always take notes when I read a book. Part of it comes from wanting the ability to add quotes to the reviews I write, but the bigger picture reason is because sometimes I like to go back to those notes and see them at a later date. By actually being able to read through a small document with all the quotes I pulled, I’ll find the one I remember, and it’s easier than paging through and rereading a whole page.

I bring this up because the notes I collected from reading The Innovators by Walter Isaacson are more than a lot of the other books I have recently read, even some on the same subject.

The End of an Era: Dark Angels & Pretty Freaks Podcast Takes a Break

Dark Angels and Pretty Freaks Podcast

Every Sunday morning for the past, I can’t remember how long, I have woken up, made some coffee, and listened to my friends Annaleis and Neil for a fresh episode of their couples podcast Dark Angels & Pretty Freaks.

Sometimes, it was more like mid-morning or afternoon, but always on a Sunday. It hasn’t been going on for the entire run of their show, but it has been going on for at least a few years now. Long enough to have become a tradition, a habit, something you can count on. But my Sundays are going to be different.

Graham Marsh’s Michael Caine: 1960s is one of the most stylish books you’ll see

Michael Caine 1960s Graham Marsh Book Review

Edith Head famously said, “You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it.” Well, then Michael Caine was destined for success. In this book, Michael Caine: 1960s by Graham Marsh, the style of the era and of the man coincide with some of the most classic photo representations of the swingin’ sixties.

Now, there aren’t a lot of words in this book, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a lot to say. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this book is longer than Moby Dick!

A Roast and a Toast to Bill Sweeney and 200 Episodes of The Wicked Theory Podcast

A Roast and a Toast to Bill Sweeney and 200 Episodes of The Wicked Theory Podcast

This past week The Wicked Theory Podcast celebrated its 200th Episode with the Roast of William Sweeney, Esq. And after a night of laughs and looking back, Bill dropped a bomb about changes coming to the show.

And while I am on the inside, I don’t want to speculate about the future of the show, I want to take this opportunity to say some very nice things about The Wicked Theory Podcast, but more specifically it’s host with the most, Bill Sweeney.
