Sean Kinney, is a life-long resident of Columbus, Ohio, and writes about business, art and the occasional acts of stupidity – both his own and others.

He considers himself a reformed entrepreneur, writer, commentator and pragmatic idealist, informed decision-making.

On car trips, and while hyped-up on Red Bull, he calls friends and shares his esoteric musings and the occasional random thought.

He is a taker of the occasional good, bad and sometimes ugly risk, embraces opportunities, believes in the power of liberal arts, green-tech, scientific literacy and the single-gunman from the book depository and believes we should all be aware of the dangers and asshatery of punditry, sophistry, fascism, liberal guilt, fundamentalists of any ilk, conspiracy wing-nuts and FOX Newstainment.

A proud progressive Yankee, he is a self-declared admirer of Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower and the Dominican Nuns at Ohio Dominican University. He promotes the value of civic responsibility over individual rights and E Pluribus Unum over In God We Trust.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face in marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt
