There’s no place like home. Click three times.
Only now, there is no place like home.
On the road for over a month now. Nearly half a year, separated. For 5 months, living out of a suitcase, rolling from planes, trains, and automobiles to freshly turned-down beds and third-world WIFI.
Long week behind, coming to the place where I used to hang my hat, but Home doesn’t feel like itself anymore.
I’m in a house that I own
But it doesn’t feel like home
My name may be on this place’s paperwork, but it feels more like a hotel than the hotel.
Home is where the heart is. Mine is most certainly lost. If only clicking of heels could bring that feeling back.

Great article that talks about how and why voice is here to stay - and will become a primary way of interacting with technology in the next phase of wearable computing.
For those of us in sales, voice never went away and will continue to be the predominant vehicle for connecting to customers and getting work done.(via marksbirch)
No doubt, I love twitter and online communities for connecting, but from a sales perspective can’t argue the value of engaging human-to-human by putting a voice to a name, or face-to-face.
