I obviously have done a very bad job of keeping my blog updated over this past week. Lots has happened, all which is good. The Hasselhoff talk was a success, and hopefully I won't be giving that talk at any more professional outings. I had a great time in Seattle meeting up with Jerry and Gail, as well as some of my old friends at Wongdoody. My marathon training is absolutely awful, and I am not looking forward to those 26 miles up and (and hopefully) down the hills of my hometown. I've got a few posts in the pipeline that I need to wrap up and get posted.
