Lite Notes

Better, Smarter, Faster

Jul 26th, 2021

There are only five days left in July … five days. Where has the summer gone? Once we roll into August it always feels like summer is winding down, and in a sense it is, as we prepare to send the kids back to school. As many of us begin back-to-school shopping for the kids, […]

Going for Gold

Jun 28th, 2021

In less than a month the world will come together, as we all gather around our TVs to cheer for our countries’ Olympians. Yes, nothing can unite us like sports. I love the Olympics, especially the summer games–gymnastics, swimming, track and field … who will be the best and bring home the gold? If you’re […]

Project Showcase

Apr 26th, 2021

After more than 20 years writing about architectural glass, you can imagine that I’ve had the chance to cover some pretty unique and interesting projects. The first building project I covered was back in 2000, and was the Experience Music Project in Seattle. It was such a cool project to write about, and was actually somewhat […]

The View from Here

Mar 29th, 2021

I don’t always write the lead story for the daily USGNN e-newsletter, but the past couple of weeks have had me pulling double-duty. In addition to my USGlass editor responsibilities, I’ve also been compiling the USGNN lead stories. Sure, it’s added to my daily workload, but it’s also given me a chance to step back […]

Almost a Year

Feb 22nd, 2021

I’ve been thinking about this blog lately, and what I wanted to share this month. For weeks I was thinking about how it would post on the last Monday of the month, February 29 … until I realized today that there isn’t a February 29 in 2021. And doesn’t that pretty much sum up what […]

Good Things in Store

Jan 25th, 2021

Welcome to my first blog of 2021. We’re only about four weeks into the New Year, and things have already been busy. I’m not here to re-hash what happened or didn’t happen, where we’ve been or where we’re going … though I will admit I had a few laughs over the Bernie mitten memes last […]

Planning Ahead

Nov 30th, 2020

We’re nearing the end of 2020—and for most of us, we’ll be glad to see it go, as we look forward to the good that 2021 (hopefully) will bring. And let me add, I hope you all had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving and are looking forward to a safe and festive holiday season ahead. […]

Green is Good

Oct 26th, 2020

Ok, well, the words Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko said in the movie “Wall Street” were actually “Greed is good.” I like to think most of us would disagree with that. On the other hand, green is good. Think about all the things that are green in color that are good for us: leafy green […]

Say That Again. And Again, and Again

Sep 28th, 2020

Today should be “Medal Monday” for me. I should have run a half marathon last weekend, but, like most everything else in the world these days, the in-person event was canceled. Instead, the options were to either run a virtual race or defer to next year’s live event. I chose to defer to 2021. I’ve […]

Virtual Reality

Aug 31st, 2020

September 2020 looks different compared to years past. For many of us, September is a month of travel—to Las Vegas or Atlanta. No one, most likely, is going to either of those cities in September, at least not for a trade show. For many of us, this time of year is synonymous with travel, re-connecting […]
