There has been a lot of talk about Facebook’s reputation concerning privacy lately. May 31st, 2010 has been deemed to be “Delete Facebook Day”, and I think I might participate. I’m writing this in hopes that, even if you decide not to delete your Facebook account, that you at least give it some thought. Click to read more …



The title of this post sums it up nicely.

It’s been years now that I’ve known I’ve needed to make some changes, but I’ve always just thought about it and said “I wish”, as if change in my life was this unattainable thing.  Sure, there have been a few changes along the way, but not the ones I’ve been dreaming I could make.

I’m talking about changes in who I am.

I’m talking about changes in how I think.

I’m talking about changes in how I relate to others.

I’m talking about changes in how I view the world around me, and changes in how I perceive my place in the world.

It’s time for me to stop dreaming and start doing.



I’ve wanted to start a podcast for about four years now, but, until now, I havent’ been able to come up with a good idea for content.  My area of expertise is, of course, computers and technology.  The problem though, is that there are enough technology podcasts already.  I feel that the category is saturated.

I discovered audio books this past year, and have enjoyed listening to audio books from Audible while commuting to and from work.  This gave me an idea!

I would like to produce a podcast of original short stories.

Here’s the catch: I have always been a facilitator.  I have the technical skills to produce the show, but I accept the fact that I don’t have the prolific creativity to produce enough content on my own.

Have you written any short stories?  Would you like to publish them online as an audio book?  Please let me know!!

I will be setting up a “studio” to produce the recordings.  Authors would always be welcome to read their own stories for the podcast, or I can voice the recordings myself in the studio.



I’ve known for a while now that I need to become more active in the Delaware community and begin making connections.  I’m a people person, and I’m fascinated by technology.  This combination is what drew me to amateur radio, and it is now drawing me to social networking.

Through Twitter, I have had the opportunity to interact with others in Delaware, and on Friday, met up with a few of them for lunch at El Vaquero.  It was great to finally meet in person and make some new friends.  I’m really looking forward to continuing to forge new relationships and expand my personal network within the local community.

I am also excited that I have been offered the chance to write for a new web site focusing on Delaware, Ohio.  Look for my first post over there soon!



I just updated the blogging software here at gehrisch.us.  It doesn’t look like anything broke, but if you notice anything, let me know!

It’s been too long since I’ve updated here.  I’m going to have to make some time to write more often.
