Devin Reams wearing a teal shirt in front of a teal sign that says 'trouble'

Howdy! I’m Devin. I’m sensibly impulsive, consistently non-committal, and passionately impartial. I’m a technologist living in Denver, Colorado.

Excellent Thanksgiving tips

From Keith Ferrazzi:

Visit my other site, Colorado Snow

Are you a skiier/snowboarder in Colorado? If so, you should check out Colorado Snow at It’s my new hobby: to create the best online resource for Colorado snow sports. Let me know what you think and if you want to help out (post gear reviews, trail reviews, guides to resorts/trails/eating/playing just let me know).

Do you wear a hat when it’s cold?

Do you wear a hat when it’s cold? As a working stiff I now tend to ‘get my hair did’ in the morning and go to the office. But, if it’s really chilly and I wear a hat I risk making a mess of all that time-consuming (30 seconds) work. Any ideas?

Driving Relationships

Is it just me or do you start having relationships with drivers on the road with you? I start calling them by their make, model, and/or color. “Come on in Green Toyota, you let me merge back there a bit ago.” Is that silly? Is that just me? Oh, and thanks for cutting me off, Black Cadillac. I hate when people mistake half a car-length as an invitation.

Wise Hypothesis

From a wise guy I know (those that share our own beliefs are often viewed as wise):

Unfair, unethical World Series ticket sales

I have a huge issue with how tickets were sold here on Monday/Tuesday to the World Series games in Denver. My biggest issue is with the lying, unfair company behind the online ticket sales, Paciolan Inc.

Accomplish anything you want: pick 5 priorities

I keep telling people that my generation (Gen-Y, Millenials) are going to be one where prioritization becomes more important than ever. With the internet alone we have unlimited resources to do, learn, and be interested by nearly everything the world has to offer. But, as I’ve always believed: just because you’re capable of doing anything, doesn’t mean you should want, nor attempt to do everything.

Do you have a multi-threaded mind?

As I sit here and write this I’m also listening to music and following along with it. I’m sure we all do it, this is no amazing feat. To some people the additional input forces you to focus. For others, it’s distracting. For me, I feel like I can pay attention to what I’m doing and the music simultaneously.

The Accident Tent

I will buy a burrito to anyone who helps me build “The Accident Tent.” Tow trucks and local and highway law enforcement will carry them in the trunk. As soon as they arrive at an accident and move it out of traffic they pop out this all-encompassing tent surrounding everything and everyone so that it a) gives the victims some privacy and b) keeps people from looking, stopping, staring, wondering, etc. I imagine it saying “keep driving, morons!” across the side.
