Why We Are Among the Walking Dead

Zombies are more popular than Sheldon Cooper, Blake Shelton, and Mariah Carey. The Big Bang Theory, The Voice, and American Idol have all lost in the ratings this year to The Walking Dead.

In its third season, The Walking Dead continues to grow its audience through a character driven drama where life and death hang in the balance for everyone. No one is safe.

Death stalks every character. It infects their relationships. It influences their decisions.

Each time I watch this show I am reminded that I am among the walking dead.


Are You Surprised By Life?

About twenty-five years ago I walked into a computer store to buy my first computer. A salesman showed me a boxy Leading Edge PC.

I sat down in front of it, looked at the dark screen with glowing green text, and listened as he told me how to type in commands to make it work. I was there less than five minutes.

I remember thinking, “This thing is ugly. It is hard to use. There has to be a better way.”

I drove across town and went into another store that sold Apple Computers. I looked at one. It was beautiful. It was easy to use. It was a better way.

Don’t worry, I’m not really writing about computers here.
