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.

Overpromise and Overdeliver

Free Business Books

Okay, so I’ve been keeping a secret from all my readers, I haven’t bought a book in over a year. Yet I’ve probably read 4 or so. “But Devin, how can you read books if you haven’t bought any?!” My answer to you is: have you ever heard of the library? Then my second answer to you is: have you ever heard of inBubbleWrap? It’s a side-project brought to you by the great people at 800-CEO-READ and it basically functions as a daily drawing for a free book. I’ve won three so far. I’m in the process of reading China, Inc which I got in the mail a few weeks ago. Another good way to get free books is to ask publishers for a copy in exchange for a review. I’ve scored another 3 or 4 this way and have a review to post shortly (way overdue). There you have it, my secret is out…


I can’t picture a more ironic, yet somehow satisfying headline: “Enron Corp. founder and former Chief Executive Ken Lay, who was convicted in May for his role in the Houston-based company’s downfall, died after suffering a heart attack on Wednesday at his vacation home in Colorado.” (Link)

The Art of Lazy

Napping Cat

Life With Women

I’ve taken on a fun little project, a webcomic. I have little-to-no artistic ability but I have a lot of funny material. I’m debating, though, do the comic in MS Paint or draw by hand? Anyway, the comic is called Life With Women and I plan to provide a weekly dose of entertainment. If you just read this thinking I’m sexist or perhaps offensive, that’s fine, it just means you didn’t go visit the site and read my introduction.

HiveLive Beta Invites

If you’re interested in testing out an interesting site here’s a link for an invite to Beta 2.0 of HiveLive. Only 100 people can use the link and it’s first come, first served.

YouTube Sucks

I wanted to get some information on Tourgasm, Dane Cook’s cleverly named comedy tour. When I visited the official website I was greeted with “The official trailer for the brand new HBO Comedy Documentary Series – Tourgasm!” When you hit Play you’re told the video has been removed for, get this, copyright infringement! YouTube, you piece of shit. You removed the official trailier. Look at all these bootleg videos! I’m sorry but I had to go to MySpace to watch the trailers. You know you’re done when MySpace does better than you…

I’m listed on Click here and help me stay there. I love being popular. PS: Guys, when you click you’ll see a decent cleavage shot. In reality it’s a guy’s ass cheeks.. no, seriously.

MySpace Blocks Creepy Adults

MySpace is stupid as hell: “MySpace users who are 18 or over could no longer request to be on a 14- or 15-year-old’s friends’ list” (Link). Oh yeah, all those creepy adults can only see partial profiles, now. Mission accomplished, guys. Are you kidding me?! On a website where people are aged 69, 123, 184, and 92 how the fuck was a users ‘age’ determined as the best deterrent? Go look at my profile, I’m suddenly a 14-year old in 30 seconds.
