Super Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded, devastated the Philippines last week, killing up to 10,000 people. Relief efforts are now underway, including one by the Geeklist Corps of Developers, which is recruiting coders, product managers and other tech experts from around the world to build tools that will help coordinate rescue efforts, enable crisis communication and make sure emergency supplies and food are quickly distributed to areas in need.
The initiative is working with the government of the Philippines to deploy and start using finished projects. Kat Borlongan, the initiative’s coordinator, tells me that they are searching for designers, developers, product managers and social media experts to help out.
“We have a lot of volunteers with their hearts in the right place with little to no experience in any of this, so product managers specialized in virtual collaboration are needed. Also, at the…

Another Monday morning, and another bus ride close to work. Then I ride my bike in the rest of the way, trust me its a lot easier on my clothes that way. I still am astonished at the amount of work that I get done before I get to the office!!! So what work? Well I’m more than happy to field that question!! I have set one of my life’s goals as being an ASC recognized cinematographer, even though at the current moment I am not walking in that path. More on that at a other time. “Wait, so what does posting about leadership, tech trends, and video games have to do with cinematography???” Another great question! I won’t go too deeply into the job duties of a cinematographer, but aside from being a manager, a cinematographer has to be pretty much on top of what’s going on in their respective “worlds”. Now that the lines of media are still being blurred by mobile tech being integrated into video games and television shows, all these avenues intrigue me. I find the merger and constant “experimentation” that is happening a very exciting time for those in the media field!!! So as my bus ride comes to an end, I’ll share this small bit of encouragement: walk in the path that you’ve been shown, or work from here for the time being-
For the past few weeks I’ve been working on pulling together a gaming community for believers, those who are seeking the Face of the Father. The main purpose is to focus on relationship rather than religion. Some communities gather around coffee, others around social media, music, and film making. But who says that a community of believers can’t gather and fellowship via video games???? So stay tuned for more developments, and if you haven’t heard from me in a while reach out for me.
Otherwise known as the bus, I get a ton of my social networking and leadership learning done. I try and get a lot of this done so that I can be as productive as I can be. A time is coming soon when I’ll have to put these new connections and skills to use, and I believe that I am ready to do so. I have been working on getting somethings in place to make the upcoming transition a bit easier for myself and my family, and also the communities that I am blessed to be a part of. On top of that I’ve been working on a few shorts that will be ready to shoot soon (within six months, to be exact.) I got a lot in the works and have to get a lot done, but I’m also being held accountable for ALL of it. Alright, my office is nearing my stop, and now that I’ve filled in all parties that actually care about my well being, I’ll keep you guys and gals updated as much as possible.
Why I have multiple blogs.
Simply put, I’m trying to find a blog where I can rest my hats. Don’t know the ins and outs of this stuff, but I’d like to gain an audience and help a many people’s as I can. I realize that I can’t help EVERYONE, but I can do what I can and give what I can. So if you see an entry here that you see on G+ or WordPress don’t freak out, I’m just testing the waters to see what works best. Feel free to comment, pass on, grammar police/nazi these posts; sometimes I might post from my iPhone and others from a laptop or desktop. So with that said. I’ll be writing a bit more, and wether you agree or not with a topic or post let me know! If you have questions, let me know!! If you wanna go to lunch or hang out, let me know!!! If you wanna hug me or superman ouch me, even so. Let. Me. Know.
