  • To Ojai
    Yesterday we spent the day with Tony, who’s in the midst of some staggering decisions. Rock on Tony! Google Latitude has a record of the datapoints of where we were. Which is alternately cool and frightening and also cool.
  • Thanksgiving Trip Redux
    Leah and I went back to California for Thanksgiving. Highlights included Thanksgiving with a turkey roasted in a Hotel room, quality time with the kids, who are now ages 16 to 21 and we are so proud of them; a playoff game for the boys that they unfortunately lost; seeing Tangled, which was good, going…
  • San Francisco, BlogHer, and Me
    Sometimes, drafts of posts sit in “draft” mode for a long time. I drafted this in August of 2008, a year and a half ago. I’m updating it as best I can and pushing it out into the world. For the past two years, my wife Leah has attended the main BlogHer Conference. The first…
  • Why can’t American airport security be run more like Israeli?
    While North America’s airports groan under the weight of another sea-change in security protocols, one word keeps popping out of the mouths of experts: Israelification. That is, how can we make our airports more like Israel’s, which deal with far greater terror threats with far less inconvenience. “It is mind boggling for us Israelis to…
  • Jacob Lake Campground
    At Christmastime, which Leah and I spent in Kanab, Utah with family, I drove south towards the north rim of the Grand Canyon. I took a few photos on the drive. Kanab’s elevation is 4,970 feet — there was a very slight amount of snow on the cliffs near Kanab and lingering in the town…
  • Enterprise
    There’s something wonderful about looking up at a Space Shuttle. Even if the whole project was sort of a half-step and not really in keeping with getting us out there. It was okay for getting us into orbit, but we really need to get, gone, daddy-o. I went to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, part…

    They made this before they wrestled in the snow.
  • Snowing Here in UT
    Yesterday we hit the road to spend Christmas with Leah’s folks. The drive yesterday was fine, save for some heavy wind as we left Ventura and Los Angeles Counties. The van was loaded for Christmas–excellent job loading the top by Tyler and Devon. Here’s Tyler checking the load as we get some breakfast at 6:20am…
  • Penguin Project: Go on an adventure in Antarctica!
    My friend Pinguino is going on a trip to Antarctica and is inviting cool folks to go with her, check it out! Here’s more info: You could party in Vegas, Ibiza, Rio, Bangkok, Sydney, or even Marrakesh. But one continent remains overlooked when it comes to having a good time. That’s right, we’re talking about…
