About Derek Gendron

Traveling the world

Created this blog as an experiment on my continual quest to learn software, programming and online verticals. The patch factor.  Its never been a focus, or a money maker (on purpose).  Right now, it is what it is.   Perhaps you will find something useful here – if not, click here.


I began in the early 60’s as a little fellow, competing with other many little fellows swimming upstream.  Needless to say, I won – I didn’t quit.  Life would teach me how to persevere, despite the obstacles.

And I learn rapidly from my experiences.

Still love to swim

Joined the swim team in school then the diving team, perhaps to continue my continual conquest upstream.  Now my passions have spilled over into the internet with relentless online business pursuits.

If it matters at all

I am someone who never gives up.  Its just not in my DNA.  I am harder on myself than anyone in this world could ever be, my standard is golden.  I make no apologies for expecting better from others.

Mediocrity is my greatest envy. A lazy mind a foe to avoid.

My offspring

I have a wonderful family (five kids) and a wife of 29 years.  We view life’s obstacles as opportunities that are temporarily wearing a costume.  Diamonds are created under enormous pressure, so pressure is, well, good!

My mission

My mission is entirely too personal and too wordy to list here. Its complicated, strategic and overwhelming to most. You just wouldn’t understand. 🙂

Hopefully with this website, you will find use in what I post here, my goal is to post items that make sense.  If you have suggestions, rants or raves, by all means post them.

Be blunt, I intend to be

In my brief time on this earth, I have learned that there are three types of people who cross my path:

  • Those who understand,  (wisdom)
  • Those who can be shown how to understand, (understanding)
  • And those who will never understand. (mediocrity)

Which are you?
