  • @italylogue I couldn’t even get through the first chapter of the book [Gomorrah: A Personal Journey into the Violent International Empire of Naples’ Organized Crime System]. Just confirmed too much that I already knew or suspected in reply to italylogue #
  • at SJC waiting for my flight to Denver after a tumultuous week – was it only a week? – in the Bay Area. #
  • Back to dia, now Wallypark, car and home. Who is Wally anyway? #

  • @flemsta mostly “mail from people with no social skills”. Tho “take that Obama crap off this Italian site” qualifies as ignorant hate in reply to Flemsta #
  • @MichaelRolland I suspect you’ll be pleasantly surprised. US hospitals generally look fancier, which says nothing about quality of care. in reply to MichaelRolland #
  • The world is full of people whose lack of social skills is so profound they don’t even know it’s lacking. And they write to me. #

  • SETI talk at Open Storage Summit – where to put 918 Exabytes? http://tinyurl.com/cn83wk #

  • thanks to everyone who helped make the 1st CO Front Range Girl Geek Dinner a success. I hope next time I get to talk with people more! #
  • @sfoskett exiting Fry’s empty-handed revokes your geek status for life. in reply to sfoskett #
  • @vdotw me on TV (if they use any of it) is a little scary; I’m used to being on the other end of the camera. in reply to vdotw #
