Here are four things I did to keep my tech project clicking along while googling every third word in our email exchanges.
Hiring a team to execute your passion project is never easy, and it's less easy when you're not fluent in tech. But with a bit of help and research you'll find the people who can make your online dreams come true.
When you have no place to rest and little money, a coffee shop that permits you to visit its warm premises, use its free power or free Wi-Fi, that hands out cups of cold or hot water, is more than a resource. It's a temporary sanctuary.
Our country is not producing enough graduates from STEM programs to fuel the innovation economy. India is far outpacing the United States in engineering graduates.
I used to think a lot about work-life balance and often felt really out of balance. Call it what you will -- adaptive transitioning or the delayed...

The new draft teacher preparation regulations from the U.S. Department of Education are an important step toward addressing many of the deficiencies in current teacher education programs. The priorities outlined are working to transform STEM teacher preparation.
I could see the other half of the room shifting in their seats. Some had already blown the exercise off, others were visibly concerned that they weren't picking up what they needed the way that the other half of the room was.
