Fast And Furious in Tokyo

Greetings from Tokyo.
I landed here last night after a 24 hour pit stop in Seoul, South Korea.
Trouble seems to follow me everywhere I go. Or, perhaps I follow trouble.
In any case, the day we arrived in Seoul, the South Koreans were playing North Korea in a World Cup soccer qualifying match.
The South won the game, and this as the news was emerging North Korea was fueling up one of its new controversial test missiles.
Let's just say I glanced up the gorgeous blue Seoul sky more than a few times.
My teams' time on the ground in Seoul was extremely brief, as it will be here in Japan.
However, it's been wonderful to meet some of our new colleagues as well as visit a few familiar faces as well.
As I write this, the G20 Summit seems to be in full swing in London, and the Conficker worm drama seems to have built to a crescendo to April 1st and then....nothing.
I guess the joke's on us!
Rumors continue about a deal between IBM and Sun Microsystems, but so far they continue to be just that.
Well, I still don't have much time to be contemplative and thoughtful about all that I've seen and learned this week, but hopefully the 12 hour plane ride back to Dallas will give me a few minutes to ponder.
