Some #Geektastic Updates

You might have noticed I created an Events section of the site (if not, here it is). I’m slowly adding in my Geek Events to this really cool calendaring tool. I discovered Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman’s cool project, Tested.com, while looking for video of Adam Savage’s No Face creation. I can’t remember where I’d heard about Read More …

Seafair weekend

Ah, the big weekend! Seafair! This is a pretty big deal in the Seattle region, for the unfamiliar. Brings back loads of memories for me. Cutting out hydro shaped boats to be towed behind bicycles. Many musical memories of marching in Seafair parades. The Seattle Center vibrant and alive, more so than the average summer’s Read More …

What is #Winning?

I read Om Malik’s great piece today about winning. Chris Michel looks like a delightful person, and the tale of their friendship exemplifies the power and delights of networking. In the course of their recent conversation, defining “winning” comes up. I’ve been pondering that myself recently. Well, I’ve been looking at “success”, but it’s really the same Read More …

Seattlites And Complaining About The Weather

The Puget Sound region is set up for a lovely weekend. Temperatures are predicted to climb into the upper 70s and (*gasp*) low 80s.

Random Friday Thoughts

I adore this region and community. Perhaps I’m biased. My parents grew up here, so even while we lived all over the globe, Seattle was always titled “home”. Its funny, though, that my father’s greater family left Seattle in the 50s and my mom’s family lived in Yakima. So it was Seattle, in a greater Read More …

Memorial Day 2014

  I always thought that Memorial Day started to honor the veterans of WWI. Turns out, at least per Wikipedia, that it actually started as Decoration Day after the Civil War. Though it often is considered the harbinger of summer (around here, it really tends to be a false-start for summer, but I digress), it’s Read More …
