I just can’t stop reading about this.
I have a lot of thoughts, but not much to add to the conversation right now.
I am sharing some links I find today. You can see them via my linkblog (or RSS), but here is what I’ve share so far…

Meltdown and Spectre - Wow, what a mess!
Two of my favorite bloggers - and humans - on Spectre and Meltdown:

Most years, I take a couple of weeks to enjoy the holidays and I work a little bit here and there.
Most years, I am excited to head back to a full-time work schedule.
This is not one of those years. I’m back to work full-time, and while I’m not dreading it, there is a little less excitement about it this time.

I am looking forward to the new year.
This time of year is always the same for me. After Christmas, which I enjoy very much, I always begin to look forward to the new year. January 1 is my birthday, so that brings an added layer of excitment, but it also comes with all of the other complicated feelings one has on a birthday.
It’s the same for me every year. Excitement and anticipation before the new year, more excitment, now mixed with anxiety when the new year actually begins.
Some great things happened in 2017. Becky had a great final season on the mock trial team, and made the state tournament for discus in May. She was also accepted into some great schools, including UCLA where she decided to attend. It’s a beautiful place in a beautiful place and we are thrilled she has the opportunity to study there. We are very proud of her.
Aside from those highlights, and perhaps a lot of smaller things I don’t remember now, 2017 was not a banner year. In fact, it was a very hard one.
Terri and I are pleased to move on to 2018.
We are looking forward to new things.

Though I finally learned it was okay to relax some time ago, I still wonder sometimes which it is.

Over the last few weeks, I've read a lot of opinions about "free range" vs. "helicopter" parenting. The issue is not a new one, but people are talking about...

I've struggled for many years trying to reconcile my faith with my commitment to reason. Sometimes I've wondered if they are incompatible. What I've come to understand, though...

I am learning how to not obsess so much about things.

When I was in second grade, my friends and I used to use a secret cypher for passing messages to one another. The way I remember it, it was very simple, but only we
knew how it worked.

I'm not thrilled with Common Core either, but it's not because of the math.

Yesterday, I had a quick Twitter discussion with Calvin Lee and Donna White and this tweet...

I did not have a movie review queued up for this week, but I was inspired by my web notes today to review a movie I saw a long time ago.

This is one of those books I wish all of my Christian friends would read.

Just before Christmas, Newsweek published an article titled The Bible: So Misunderstood It's a Sin
. The article stirred up quite a bit of controversy and more than a few Christain bloggers wrote a reaction or clarification piece.

I read something yesterday and the timing could not have been more perfect - for two reasons.

Facebook announced in a blog post yesterday that it would be rolling out new tools aimed at helping friends get help for friends they fear might be contemplating suicide. Like most things Facebook - or most things generally, I guess - I was skeptical at first, but it didn't take long for the idea to grow on me.

After years of using Feedburner, I've decided to give up on it.

I saw a nakedpastor drawing a while back that reminded me of a couple of posts I wrote almost four years ago

If you were watching the Oscars last night, like I was, you may have seen a new Apple ad featuring voiceover by Martin Scorsese. I was fortunate enough to be in the audience when he gave that speech, and while it was a long speech packed with lots of great inspirational stories, the beginning of that ad features one of my favorite parts.
