I'm a one-person show when it comes to managing, editing, and maintaining the content found at socPub. A year and a half a ago, there was a lot of unknowns when I rebranded CMS Report into socPub. Today, I'm happy to report that the number of readers that visit the site daily have stabilized.

It's no secret that I am a science fiction fan. When dating my wife, one of our first kisses was from me becoming overjoyed after I found out she stayed up too late the previous night watching a "dumb movie" on the SciFi channel.

A couple years later, my next job took me to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. To my surprise, on the first visit from Sioux Falls to Kansas City I found that I added exactly 363 miles my truck's odometer.
