Re: New York area meetup??

I'll be in NYC in June, about the 10th-14th I think. It would be great to meet up with you fine people. However it's a very short, family trip, celebrating my sexagenarian father's birthday, so I'm not sure if there's anything I can do than grab a quick coffee/beer with you hoopy froodle yankee-doo...

Re: "Academia vs. Business" Discussion

Wow, condescending much?

Some people write code to get the job done, others do it for the recognition. I know what kind of coder I am, and now sadly, I know what Randall is too.

Re: New York area meetup??

Well, the museum of sex wasn't terrible.

We're checking out the Tenement Museum the next time she's in town, and the Transit Museum the time after that.

Also, totally non-NY related, but the glass flowers exhibit at Harvard's Natural History Museum is really, really, really pretty.
