You, Me, and Mobility

Hello kind reader! Thanks for stopping by Pianomics Inc.

Mobility: whether you know it or not, your every day life depends on it. Everything from the calls made from your cell phone, surfing the web, to the cool apps you've downloaded and use. Your good faith that your text message will reach the recipient on the other end, you checking your bank account, or even ordering a pizza directly from your phone, laptop, PC, or tablet. All of these and so much more are ways that we all are dependent on mobility every day... Didn't mean to scare anyone there.

When I say mobility, I am not referring to your agility or transportation. Mobility, as you can tell, is a particular characteristic of our technology. Mobility is borderless networking and any transaction or communication via wireless communication.

Businesses, large and small, recognize the power of such innovation. That's why enterprises such as Google, Coca-Cola, Dell, UPS, The Home Depot, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, Mozilla Firefox, Visa, Electronic Arts, Delta Airlines, and Turner Broadcasting, to name a few, are investing millions into what is and what will be the future of technology and communication. Why? It's fast, powerful, profitable, and provides near limitless availability to consumers.

What else would you want from a business providing you a service? And what else do you think a business wants from it's consumers? The opportunity to reach each other anytime, anywhere.

This year the number of mobile-connected devices is projected to exceed the world's population. The mobile sector is the fastest growing sector of the global telecomm market. Mobile revenues will grow from $1.5 trillion in 2011 to $1.9 trillion in 2015 and will invest $793 billion in capital for mobile broadband and LTE technologies to connect the world's population to the Internet. Another interesting fact on mobility: according to CNN Money, the career of a Software Developer is the best job for fast growth in America.

Mobility is engaging, connected, freeing, and saves us time. Your phone can literally become your wallet. Mobile devices are becoming the remote controls to the internet of everything. The use of your Blackberry (Team Blackberry!), to your iPhone, Android, PC, tablet, laptop, or anything else you use to communicate without face-to-face interaction is all mobile.

The move from the PC to Internet to smart phones makes the move to mobility inevitable. Technological and the resultant societal change has become a given. In my view, it's a change for the better. The mobility from our technology enables us to be connected to information, entertainment, and each other at any given point throughout the day (although that can be good and bad). So as you play with and download your apps, check your bank account, order a pizza, or check your facebook and communicate from your phone, consider the lightning fast ability of the technology in your device allowing you to do so and the ways that mobility impacts your daily life.

Personally, I think it's just absolutely amazing. In years to come we may see mobile cars. Mobile lights. Mobile home appliances. Frontiers yet to be explored.

Thanks for reading and God Bless!

The Synth Sounds

I am excited to share that my first jazz project is nearing completion. (Also why this is my first post this month).

Other than piano, you can definitely expect to hear sounds of 1980's and 1990's-era synthesizers filtered throughout the upcoming album.

I admire the newer sounds we have today, but none of them quite replicate the original, synth-led sounds of 80's and 90's music.

In my opinion, 80's and 90's sounds present the perfect crossover of analog and digital mixes that were limitless in use and expression.

It is no wonder that modern synthesizers today still draw inspiration from 80's and 90's technology. It was simply some of the most innovative audio machinery ever created.

No shame here. Expect 80's and 90's vibes to come your way in my upcoming project.

Stay Tuned!!!

CFC Youth Day

CFC Youth Day was nothing short of remarkable.

Children, teenagers, young adults (my generation) sang, danced, praised, and worshiped God with passion, love, joy, energy, and sincerity.

We led, both, the 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM services and the LORD ministered through us in His own powerful way.

I am very grateful to have preached at the 10:00 AM service. (Came from 2 Timothy 1:7).

Something amazing happens when we move ourselves out of the way and allow the LORD to communicate His Word through us. He does for us what we cannot do for ourselves. And when you summarize the meaning He brings to life, you realize that all the of the glory belongs to Him.

The reality of God's presence gives life, and everything we involve ourselves in, brand new meaning.

God's awesomeness was displayed in a monumental way today. A flame was kindled in our youth and the church as a whole.

Today was special.

Big thanks to everyone who helped make today such a great success, you know who you are!


The Audacity of Hope

Last week I completed The Audacity of Hope by President Barack Obama in 2006.

In The Audacity of Hope, Mr. Obama shares some of his experiences as a citizen and politician while also laying out policy-driven solutions to improve the lives of Americans.

Granted The Audacity of Hope was written before Mr. Obama's first presidential election in 2008, his thorough understanding of the Nation's issues are impressive and difficult to overlook.

Mr. Obama, in an academic prose, but down-to-earth tonality, hits on national issues relative to our political system, constitutional interpretation, economics, military policy, education, and community development.

I found The Audacity of Hope to be one of the better books I have ever read on American politics and public affairs. Regardless of your politics, this is a good read with the capabilities to expand anyone's understanding of politics and government.

In fact, much of the information contained in The Audacity of Hope is still rele…
