In snow that is. The Denver area has been at the receiving end of three consecutive and intensive snow storms; another one is predicted to hit later this week. I have drifts up to five feet deep in parts of my yard and the lake behind me is frozen over completely. It's times like these that I'm most grateful to be able to work out of my home. Telecommuting does have its advantages.
It's also nice to be able to travel again, having fully recovered from my open heart surgery last spring. I have bookings from now through June. My first international trip of the year is coming up in a couple of weeks, where I'll be traveling to London and Manchester to give the Turing Lecture
for the British Computer Society
on the promise, and limits, and the beauty of software. I'll also be meeting with several customers, academics, and researchers, and will have the time to interview a couple of projects for the Handbook
Quote of the day:If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.
