Potential bio

ScottheadshotI've been asked to speak at the Wharton Web Conference (I also happen to be on the content committee of said conference, funny how that works out!) about WordPress.

I've been struggling with writing a bio for the Web site, but now I think I've got it. What do you all think of this:

Scott McNulty has been blogging for over 10 years. Over the course of that time he’s taken countless pictures of cats, met his wife at a blogger meetup, and written a couple of blogging books (“Building a WordPress Blog People Want to Read” and “Building a TypePad Blog People Want to Read”).

In addition to being crazy about blogging, Scott has an unhealthy interest in eReaders, Hawaiian shirts, Macs, and Diet Pepsi.

When not hard at work as a member of Wharton Computing, Scott pounds the keyboard stringing words together for his next tech book (coming soon to a bookstore near you).

Also, I'm thinking of using the crop of this picture, taken by Marisa, as my headshot.Thoughts?

We had a lovely Memorial Day Weekend in Northampton, MA thanks to our gracious (and very generous) hosts Becky and Eric.

Becky is my oldest blog buddy, so it was a bummer when she and Eric decided to move to Northampton. That being said, they seem to be settling in very nicely what with the plentiful sausage and ice cream opportunities (plus there I think there might be a bookstore or two around the area… but I'm not sure).

I'm no God expert...


But if I learned anything from 13 years of Catholic school (K-12th grade, thank you very much) it is that God is constantly judging you. He knows when you're asleep, and he knows when you're doing something you shouldn't. Heck, he even knows when you're thinking about doing something you shouldn't (and even THAT is a sin).

You would think Harold Camping, the "The world is going to end on May 21st dude," would know as much but it seems he doesn't:

Harold Camping Breaks Silence, Predicts October 21 Rapture, Christian News:

'On May 21, this last weekend, this is where the spiritual aspect of it really comes through. God again brought judgment on the world. We didn’t see any difference but God brought Judgment Day to bear upon the whole world. The whole world is under Judgment Day and it will continue right up until Oct. 21, 2011 and by that time the whole world will be destroyed,' he proclaimed.

At least he sticks to his convictions despite all evidence to the contrary. Isn't that what faith is all about?

Don't tell my boss


Change is a constant in our lives, is it not?

It seems like only yesterday I penned my last post as Chief Blogger at Comcast (where I'm known simply as "the former Chief Blogger for Comcast Voices," brevity makes the heart grow fonder) to start my adventures (for the second time) at Wharton.

Since being back at Wharton I've moved offices 3 times. My latest is a shared office with Barry (seen hard at work in the picture above).

Hence the name of today's shirt, "Don't tell my boss."

Put me in coach, I have a clear mind and heart... and a nice shirt.

A few days ago I wore this shirt, which has been featured on Showtime's Dexter:

It would seem Lt. Baptista isn't the only fictional character who likes to rock a Tommy Bahama shirt from time to time. Marisa and I were watching Friday Night Lights on Friday (Marisa is a big fan of the show, I don't hate it) and Buddy Garrity was sporting a fine looking shirt:
