I have been contemplating investing in a wider array of smart-home devices for quite some time now. I’ve had a Google Home, Philips Hue lights, a Ring Pro doorbell and another smart plug that hooks up to a lamp for about a year now – slowly but surely, I’m building my castle. While they don’t all work together with one another natively, they get the job done and I like each for its own reasons.
I think it was two weeks ago at the time of my writing this post that Target had a sale on Nest thermostats. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take advantage of that sale – thanks, procrastination… and bills… Continue reading “The Nest Test”
Helping others… it’s been around for quite some time – pretty much the entirety of time. Yet, why is it that when we see others in need of our help, we say that we don’t have time? How can we not have the time for a concept that has been around since the existence of time?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about slowing things down on a recent trip to Europe – mentioning that it would be part one of a soon-to-come saga. Welp, part two is now here! Continue reading “Europa – Take II”
Workflow – it’s a scary word, right? It comes up more and more every day in conversations; so much so that Gartner, a leading technology analytics firm, has transitioned the Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) marketplace into a new category: Content Collaboration Platform (CCP).
Citrix ShareFile has been consistent in our execution within said marketplaces. In the three years that Gartner produced the Magic Quadrant for EFSS, ShareFile was named a leader. This year, as the marketplace shifted to the CCP, ShareFile was, again, named a leader – for the fourth time in a row!!!
Why? There are a number of reasons explained in the Gartner report(s) – but, today, we are going to focus on one: Workflow.
The purpose of ShareFile’s workflow engine is to simplify the building of workflows to a manner by which an Average Joe business user can create flows using if/then type statements and filters in order to automate mundane tasks in their day-to-day. Continue reading “Workflows – Easy as 1, 2, 3….”

A throwback, yes; but it fits the theme of this post so well…
A few weeks ago, my wife and I traveled to Europe for a much-needed vacation. I know people say that all the time, but it’s true – it was much-needed and it was amazing. I’m not going to write about our entire adventure here, I’ll get to that eventually. Consider this part one of a multi-post series about our adventures (alternatively, if you can’t wait, you can check out my Instagram feed where I documented much of our trip).
The reason I say this trip was much needed is exactly what the title eludes to – we were moving too fast. Continue reading “Slow Down, Everyone, You’re Moving Too Fast”
