Today’s alternative to my usual run

Our frisbee and ball I finally took some time to get outside, and exercise for the first time in about a week. I was going to do my usual run (it's effective but I don't particularly like it) when my daughter asked me to take her to the park. I was about to say "No",…

Happy 30th birthday to the Web

The Web turned 30 yesterday, so I guess this is a belated birthday post about the invention that made so much of how I live my life, and my various careers, possible.
