I've always enjoyed Penelope's writing...now

I've always enjoyed Penelope's writing...now her tone is more somber and, well, serious. It's still good though. This particular article makes me really thankful to have a job as it seems to be quite a mess out there right now. I've got a few good friends that are 'on the market' as it were--this one made me think of them. Take This Job and Love It

thank you for widening my perspective about what makes america great. i must admit that because i'm so far away from "ground zero", my tendency towards vapid banality has overtaken any sense of loss. i am once again the latch-key son to a flashy ADD parent that takes narcissism and distraction to new heights... and how i missed her vacuous comfort...

This reminds me of the early days of the web when it really was mostly useless banter. I did have a green velvet couch and loveseat combo in college...with matching lampshades. I'm not kidding. Ugly Couch Home

So while in Denver last

So while in Denver last week I got to have dinner with the CEO of walmart.com, Jeanne Jackson. I can say, without a doubt, that she's the best leader I've ever worked under.

So I'd written a long blog today about this story of e-mail's 30th anniversary when the blue screen appeared. Here's the summary. I got an e-mail address as a freshman at UCDavis. Then I used Gopher. Then my friend Erik Jarvi told me about the 'web'. I was hooked. Here I am. Oh yeah, my first e-mail address was ez006511@ucdavis.edu. Weird how I remember that. E-Mail Celebrates Its 30th Birthday
