  1. Abigail Blakeway Edelman and Benjamin Blakeway Edelman  • 
    The babies have arrived.
  2. Balticon 42 Wrapup  • 
    Chaos and science fiction conventions go together like rum and Coke. Which makes Balticon 42 about 180 proof. But hey, just because Balticon was chaotic and organizationally challenged in places doesn't mean it wasn't fun.
  3. Transferring ISPs…  • 
    …so things may be a wee bit rocky with the website for a day or two.
  4. Driving Language  • 
    The common hand gestures we use for car-to-car communication say a lot about our culture and linguistics in general.

  9. My Trip to France (Part 1)  • 
    I'm in France on vacation. Paris, to be exact. Literally across the street from the Louvre, to be more exact. Here are a few key things I've noticed about France, in no real order.

    There's a marvelous game embedded in Po Bronson's excellent 1997 book "The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest: A Silicon Valley Novel." It's really about taking risks and making gambles. It's about learning to make quick decisions and not regretting your mistakes.
