I took off for a day vacation and I went to the DragonCon parade, in Downtown Atlanta and wound up staying the entire day. 30 years in Atlanta, of the Con, DragonCon that is. I was not privy to interview the founder of DragonCon but I did have another chance to attend the 2016 event. I had a lot of fun. I spent the entire day from 9:15 am to 11:09 pm. I had a blast. This time I was dressed cool without costume makeup on so I enjoyed it a lot more.

Yes Microsoft has had the Microsoft online academy for over a decade and it is complete with all the certifications you need to ever do anything in technology.
Pokémon has cause a weird craze among adults in the last 72 hours, with the new game, Pokémon Go. I saw 10 post in one day from adults who could not get enough of Pokémon Go. I had to find out why. I asked around and now I know.
Where is the outrage? Where is the political action? Why doesn't anyone do something? We have heard these questions every single summer since the Troy Davis case came to public knowledge. We are just not a proactive nation. We sit by and let things happen until they become so bad that we can't do anything to stop them from happening, or so we believe. Where is the NRA? That is a question. This is their fight! Where are they?
