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.

Follow up on goals and ambitions

When I earned the Boy Scout rank of Eagle I had to write a letter of my ‘Life Goals and Ambitions’. I rediscovered this letter the other day and it was a real eye-opener. I said a lot of interesting things that I wouldn’t have guessed. I realized today it’s important to revisit your future plans…

Spring cleaning feels good

One of the best things you can do is spend a few hours cleaning, organizing and getting rid of crap. You may not think it’s there but it is. I found four grocery bags worth of stuff yesterday and I couldn’t be happier…

Lunch at Sonic

I had never been to Sonic so when one opened down the street I was drawn to it. Maybe it’s the prospect of skates, maybe its the bright lights at night. Or, it may just be the fun experience I had yesterday.

Ben’s Start-Up Life

Ben Casnocha has written a book about, you guessed it, his start-up life. Being that he’s only 19 I wonder what other ‘lives’ he’ll be having. In any case, Ben’s a smart guy. Check out his blog and his book, My Start-Up Life: “The book is my own story of entrepreneurship written in way that can inspire and aid other entrepreneurs to start their own businesses, or simply become CEO of their own lives.

Sometimes big companies are no fun

I’ve been an intern at a large company for over a year now. I’ve worked both part-time and full-time. I’ve seen the ins-and-outs, no doubt. That’s why I found this article on CollegeHumor so amusing. Going off to work at a big company after school can be sad, lonely and a waste of everyone’s time.

The best online greeting cards

My friend sent me a thoughtful card yesterday. Online, of course. This is perhaps the funniest collection of sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek, witty and all-out hilarious cards:

Hey, you’re still here? Cool!

It’s so good to see you! Last time you stopped by I was an undergraduate–now I’m an alumnus! Needless to say, the last few weeks have been busy. I just haven’t found the time to do any writing. But, I promise, I’m here, I’ve got things to say and appreciate you hanging around…

Does the internet scare you?

I love the internet. I’ve grown up with it. Even as a kid I remember being addicted to it. In fact, I sometimes forget how things got done before it was around. I can’t imagine what it was like to register for classes with a pencil and paper. It’s scary how much we rely on technology…

I have a burning question and I want you all to help me find an answer:
