Raid over Moscow

It's amazing to think that in 1985 I played a computer game based on taking out nuclear sites in the USSR and now years later I'm heading over to get a look at the Kremlin in the flesh. Hopefully it's not really the way it looked in 8-bit graphics on the C-64.Either way I'm glad that Russia and the US are pals now. I also hope todays kids are smarter than I and play things like 'Humanitarian mission to the Congo'. I would buy a copy.

Macworld SF 2008 Annual blogger lunch and schmoozefest

It's time to mark your calendars for another edition of the Macworld SF Annual blogger lunch and schmoozefest. Last year I dropped the ball because I was at CES. Sad choice because Apple announced the iPhone and I was left in Vegas looking at suddenly old looking hardware. Onward and upward!The lunch will be on January 15, 2008 at the Yerba Buena Gardens. You don't need to be attending the conference to come out to lunch, but if you would like to go to the show too you can grab a discounted Macworld Expo Pass from the generous folks at Other World Computing. The nicest thing about this lunch - low formality and purpose, high on chocolate chip cookies and goofing off. I encourage you to let me know if you are planning on attending either in the comments or on the Upcoming page with all the event details and please spread the word! Over the past few years we had a great time and I expect this year to be Mactastic as well. See you there.
