If you’re wondering where I’ve been the last 2 weeks, I have been going through some major transitions (with business, home, and relationships –just to name a few)!

If data security frustrates you, you’re not alone! With mobile device usage and cloud adaptation on the rise, people are accessing more and more data on the fly.  And with so much sensitive information dispersed and accessed across the internet, security has never been a more critical subject. I was quoted on the subject in a recent article title Protecting Data Through BPM, authored on BusinessAgility.com by my friend Pierre DeBois, Founder of Zimana, a consulting company that specializes in digital marketing.

Since I’ve been a kid, I’ve been a Microsoft Paint fanatic.  The designer of this Color Matching Pen must have drawn inspiration from the same when coming up with this design.  Paint has a dropper tool that lets you select a color to draw/write with.  This physical pen works the same.  Simply ‘scan’ over a color you want to write in, and the pen will match it accordingly.
