The Long Trend of Collecting and Leveraging Employee Data

Amazon just patented a device that tracks their workers’ hands in order to nudge their hands back into a more productive direction. If you are surprised by that, you should not be. Why? Simply put, it is only one development in a long trend of how companies have collected and leveraged employee data for the past decade. Tune into this episode for the details. | If you like what you’ve seen, please support my work by buying me a cup of coffee.

Sologamy, Self Marriage and Alternative Weddings

If you can’t find the perfect partner in someone else, why wait for the ring when you can get hitched to yourself? That, at least in part, seems to be the thought process behind “sologamy,” or the act of marrying oneself. People — particularly women — are participating in the marriage trend that’s billed as a practice in self-love. And just in case that concept is just too weird for you, Jim Stroud discusses other alternatives to traditional marriage. Tune in for the details!  If you appreciate my work, buy me a cup of coffee? Thank you in advance.

Part 3 of my Black History mini-series is now online

Historians have long debated the reasons behind the demise of slavery (and everything else that lead to the civil war in America) however, there is one VERY controversial theory that rarely gets discussed. By far, this is the most controversial episode in the series. Make sure you are sitting down when you watch this one. (You’ve been warned.)

My Black History Mini-Series “Slavery in America” Begins Here… (1 of 3)

While I typically vlog about technology (and HR related topics before that), this post marks my doing something different. In honor of black history month, I am doing a 3-part video series on slavery in America. I am not a historian. However, I can read what other historians and academics have detailed in their findings and present them to you in a witty and (hopefully) remarkable way.

In episode one of three…

Why were black people made slaves in America? How did it all begin? In the first part of this video series, Jim Stroud explores the legal precedent that set the stage for the enslavement of Africans in America. Tune in for a very controversial video.
