The Importance of Data Portability

Your data, your code, your progress belongs to you - you have worked too hard, and, in a lot of cases, paid too much money to allow a company to own your hard earned progress. Don't get locked in by a company who does not have your best interests at heart.

Lisa Sabin-Wilson, Brett Favre, Green Bay Packers

My name is Lisa and I love Brett Favre. There. I said it.

Like most Packer fans, the pending retirement of our beloved number 4 was something we’d rather not talk about, at the time. We knew it was coming – but it was the 500 lb gorilla in the room that everyone was ignoring. That is, until 2008 when the Packers web site announced Brett Favre’s retirement from football.

Registered Nurse Wisconsin

Renewing my Wisconsin Nursing License – 2010

In 2010, I have the same gripe I have now, as I did in 2008 – – – aside from a few bucks out of my pocket every two years, there are no educational requirements should I decide to re-enter the nursing field.  In Wisconsin, mandatory continuing education as a condition of licensure exists for the majority of health care professionals except for nursing. Can you imagine?  I haven’t practiced since 2004.  That’s 6 years now.  In the ever-changing field of medicine, I can’t even begin to imagine what I’ve missed and how much I don’t know. 

A Very Bose Christmas

My ears lost their innocence in 1990. I used to be a person who was just happy listening to music on whatever medium was available – – the car radio, my home stereo system, the loudspeakers at the mall – it didn’t really matter to me.  Although, I am a musician – and a classically trained one at that – my ear was never really very picky when it came to consuming music for my entertainment.   My ear only seemed to be MY worst critic, not anyone else’s.  That is until 1989, when I married a true audiophile geek.  If […]

WordCamp New York 2010

Want to go to WordCamp NYC?? It's on me!

With WordCamp NYC coming up next weekend – I’m catching that whole WordCamp spirit again.  I have to say that I truly enjoy attending WordCamp and wish more WP users would attend, if they could.  It’s really a great deal of fun just meeting, talking and sharing with other people within the user community – the benefits are undeniable…talk to anyone who has attended any WordCamp, anywhere – they’ll all say the same.  It’s an experience not to be missed, if you can. So I’m headed to bed for the night after working on my presentation for WordCamp NYC and […]

WordCamp NYC, BuddyPress & Me!

I’m really excited about the opportunity to speak at WordCamp NYC – At 9:15 am Saturday morning – November 14 – I will take the stage and talk about growing communities with BuddyPress. This presentation will take a look at the features BuddyPress currently offers to help you grow your own community on your web site, including some tips and tricks I’ve come across along the way to help de-mystify the BuddyPress themes and templates to help you on your way to customizing your own BuddyPress community site.

Out From Under . .

Seriously, I haven’t updated this site since JULY – almost 4 months ago. I’m surprised I still have subscribers and that you are still here reading this .. but thank you for sticking around! So much as been going on since I last updated here, I don’t even know where to begin. Maybe if I just blank out the last 4 months and start over and pretend like some of this stuff never happened…would you still love me in the morning?
