Directly after I wrote about the Darkest Days of the Year, my experience of this year's winter in the Southern Hemisphere, I spent two weeks working from bed with a winter flu. Then, as soon as I recovered, I flew to the Northern Hemisphere for a week of summertime. I didn't know I was going [...]

My First Trip to New Zealand

It all started with LookSee Wellington. This program offered all-expense-paid trips for 100 people working in the Tech industry to come and visit Wellington, the capital of New Zealand. 48,000 people applied. Only 0.2% of those who applied were invited, and I was not one of them. Still, applying for a trip to New Zealand [...]

Danger Man was the greatest failure of my life. (And in a life as adventurous as mine, that's really saying something.) This week I entered the Don Quixote Windmill Contest, a video competition for a $10,000 prize. The hosts of the competition are looking for the Best Bad Idea. The purpose of the Quixote's Windmill Prize [...]

An Eternal Moment Onstage
