Moderate Earthquake

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

The bay area was rocked by a moderate earthquake yesterday that caused no damage or injuries. I have now lost my earthquake virginity. A bunch of other people from out of state at work were also pretty excited about it. Here is a link with proof that it existed.

Back in Champaign

Sunday, October 14th, 2007

I love this town. UIUC is very nostalgic now after just 2 years. I was glad to see most of my core group of ACM friends that I pretty much never see (even though some of them live within an hour of me). Ari’s talk was good. It went well except for the obligatory demo failure. Despite that, Ari did well recovering and the demo for the product that I work on went great as always. I’m gunna hang out with my family here in a few hours and it will be nice to catch up with them as well.

Also interesting news is that I just booked my flight to China for the Beijing Olympics. I’ve always liked the Olympics and the summer events in particular. We are in the lottery for 5 events and Yisong thinks we will get 2 or 3. He has family there, so we will be able to get free lodging, not that we would be hurting for cash while we were there. Also, it will be nice to visit with someone that can speak Chinese because we will be able to get around better and get all the good deals.
