People have been asking me, “So what the hell do you do all day?” Well my friends, lots of researching and writing. Here is what I’m up to these days when not looking for a full time job.
Web Writing for Small Businesses
There are a number of books out there that deal with how you should write for the web, but I don’t think they do a good enough job for someone who is starting out with a web presence or has never written a word of marketing copy in their life. So, I will remedy that with a book that will be available here on my site. It’ll cover the basics of how to write, how to change your writing for the web, SEO that’s not spam, and how to use these same principles in online corporate communications.
Life of a Thai Slave Girl
Fictional account of a young girl’s attempt to find her family that mistakingly sold her into slavery.
It’s 2050, all of North America’s fresh water can be found only in Canada, and Californians have to live off bland, disgusting desalinized water. Of course you can buy real, fresh, designer water imported from Canada or Europe for $20 a liter, but why pay full price when you can get knock-offs for half the price. Enter the water bootleggers. Also, with a lack of water, what would this mean for computing as tons of water is needed to make silicon chips? Would we move to lasers? Or would it spur another technology that we have yet to consider?
I would be interested in doing a study of the changes in American house architecture and the growing epidemic of obesity. As the American dream home has grown to incorporate great rooms consisting of a kitchen and TV room, our waistlines have grown as well. Is the change in the layout of the home caused by our love of excess and the underlining cause of both? Are both of these changes caused by our love of food, laziness, all or none of the above? Hmmm… could I have a Masters or Phd thesis in this?
