Games, Technology, and Other Stuff

At least that’s what I think it’s called. We saw a wide range of implements, including tiny foil-style boards that stayed out of water (think previous America’s Cup) with a rudder-like stabilizer in water. Julie and I were hiking in the Rooster Rock area. The post

Very much an indictment of MacArthur and Almond, with heaping praise for Ridgway. I also listened to Three Days in January: Dwight Eisenhower’s Final Mission which is presumably about three k

I’m very impressed with the spirits coming from Krooked Tusker – mostly clear but their unaged whiskeys are not bad. I’m here with Mom and Julie now, bought supplies for “old fashioned mules”. Recipe to come. The post

What I’m Contemplating No single birthplace of mankind, say scientists – Sounds like we still have a lot to learn and uncover around the origin of our species. Remote versus Co-located Work – Martin Fowler gives a good breakdown of the continuum of working modes for organizations. Lennon or McCartney? Can statistic

We took advantage of a warm Saturday during our brief stay back in the northwest to meet halfway and do a hike with Jacob and Kaitlin to Packwood Lake near Mt Rainier. The trail was heavily used but still quiet. Lots of backpackers camped around the lake – looks like a nice intro trail. The post
