I am one of forty seven persons to still have and love a dumb phone but I have come across an app (on my wife's Smartie-Pantsed phone) that would almost move me to buy a Smart-ier phone. It is called, Pulse Point.
The application has been purchased for use by many large metropolitan areas in order to 'save lives' . Recently, our City of Albuquerque, New Mexico shelled out…

- First "incubator" facility at Innovate ABQ will open inside a former homeless shelter. One hopes this is temporary. (Also, our Economic Development Director maybe needs to back off the hip lingo a tad).

Man, today was a good day. It was one of those days where all the pieces fall together beautifully. The online world intersected with the real world, social media gave way to social interaction, and locals met with other locals to support…

“Strange days have found us. Strange days have tracked us down” –The Doors.
I can often be overheard spewing forth such tidbits as my continued genuine surprise at not winning the Powerball
. Well guess what… I didn’t win again! On the bright side- I was only off by 5 numbers. But I have seen such strange “signs” in my world lately that it could happen. That… or it’s the… Continue

Rob Dickson sent out appologies withdrawing from the Mayors race about two weeks ago. The Public FInancing parameters appear to be too ridgid and difficlut for a number of the potential Mayoral candidates (Debbie O'Malley also withdrew due to frustration with the $5 donation public financing plan) This is something politically minded folks may want to work on for future elections.
Our local champion of "New Urbanism" Rob Dickson, has… Continue

Job loss. Mortgage crisis. Failing banks. Stimulus plan. Recession. The news these days isn't exactly a source of peace of mind. For me, I've looked to local organizations for inspiration and motivation. Right in our backyard, the non-profit sector is pushing hard to make a real difference in peoples' lives.
I've volunteered with Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque
for merely a year (and recently joined the Board), but in that time I have gotten to… Continue

It was coooooold! Note to self: wear a sweater &/or gloves &/or scarf/other winter gear next time. I tried to huddle as close to the fire jugglers as possible. It was quite warm right under the heater on the patio of… Continue

I bet you've been wondering where I've been. I mean since that Hollywood Halloween anyway. No? Fine. Well last night I was at Imbibe! Wait, did I see you there? If not, you missed a great event. It was their "Drew Estate Night". Drew Estate

Sausage sausage sausage! We kicked off the Labor Day weekend around Martini World! with a small cookout. What began as fetching a sample of sausages from Joe S. Sausage
was quickly dubbed "Sausage Fest 2008". My friends are meat eating animals of the most civilized kind. Most Fridays our close friends just end up here or there for a drink or two, maybe some dinner. This Friday we… Continue

Well I made it out and about in ABQ for a 3rd afternoon in a row! Woohoo! And this was close to home. There was a lot of arguing in the news and various websites about closing Central and alleged bus service disruptions, etc. etc. But you know what? This was fun, it was a quiet Sunday afternoon in Nob Hill
, hence minimal disruption, and I get tired of hearing people whine. The Shop and Stroll was… Continue

On the eve of the most wonderful time of the year I really start to get into "the spirit". The spirit of The Land of Enchantment, and of Albuquerque. The most wonderful time of the year for me is Labor Day through Christmas. OK, well around here it may extend through St. Patrick's Day! But we have Chile roasting
