It’s been a hard few days. I expect there will be more of them in the future.
I can’t do anything for Jeff as he lies in ICU at a Birmingham hospital. I can help his wife Amy by making sure she’s taken care of when I’m around her. Did she eat? Does she need time alone? Did she get enough time with him during visitation?

How much does your life weigh? Imagine for a second that you’re carrying a backpack. I want you to pack it with all the stuff that you have in your life. – George Clooney as Ryan Bingham, Up In The Air

I have a few people on my mind …
… the friends I won’t be seeing this Thanksgiving. Rather than visit family or host our usual “expatriate Thanksgiving” for our friends, Suzan and I will escape for a weekend of our own.
Suzan and I spent the past week in San Francisco with friends and had a wonderful time. Our trip combined time with friends, travel to a city filled with great photo opportunities, an escape from the summer heat of Georgia and a celebration of my wife’s birthday.
My first travel documentation task is to upload over 400 photos, then I might be able to get trip memories put onto the site. Watch this space for details …
My good friend Joyce is conducting a “geek culture” survey.
The purpose of this survey is to gather demographic data about geek culture. I will be collating the data into a presentation in order to introduce geekdom as a subculture to a masters class on intercultural communication. There are 18 questions; the first 11 are standard demographic info; the rest are specific to geek culture. None of the questions are mandatory, but I hope that you will answer them all.
It’s an experiment, and we know how much our fans like science 🙂
