This page tracks what I’m doing right now. Last updated May 2017.
Here is a list of my main current projects:
- Helping refresh two courses in the Master of Information Technology program at Virginia Tech
- Latest blog post: “Upgrading Bridge and Tremolo for Fender Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Guitar”
- My review of The Structure of Scientific Revolutions: 50th Anniversary Edition, 4th Edition, by Thomas Kuhn, is out on https://www.kendallgiles.com/what-im-reading/
- My ode to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig is out on https://www.kendallgiles.com/what-im-reading/
I’ll keep this page updated when there is a new project added or an older one archived. Note that you can also keep up with even more timely updates and interests by following me on Twitter @kendallgiles.
In general I like to stay fairly over-allocated on interesting projects that allow me to learn, grow, create, and do.
So far, I think Gary Vaynerchuk has quite hit the nail on the head regarding what is the best use of the short slice of time each of us have here on Earth. When someone used the excuse that they were too old to start a new business/project/career, he said (my paraphrase):
Are you kidding? Look, even if you are 60 years old, the life expectancy these days is something like 100 years. So even if you are 60 years old, you’ve got 40 more years to start something new and do something meaningful in your life. What, at 60 you are just going to give up, play golf, and watch TV for the next 40 years?
I agree. It’s never too late to start a new project, pursue a dream, or do something meaningful.
Start right now.
