Robotic Competition

Uncategorized

I spent my Saturday being a referee (not fun when you make bad calls, incidentally) for a very cool robotic competition for students: Capitol Best. The contest was non-combative (although there was definitely some bumping and locking arms)… it boiled down to moving balloons around a ring… Balloons.. with robots… without popping… All teams had an identical kit of materials.

Sheila sent me a picture of her Belinda last night. Made me laugh out loud (THANK YOU). Belinda, the Star I have a few more sitting in my inbox that I need to upload that are also really cute.

Night 1

Uncategorized

The striking thing so far about JournalCon is that, as I’m walking around, it felt to me like women outnumber men by 2000 to 1 and they outnumber straight men 40000000 to 1… …and they’re all geekgrrls. So, yes, I’m having fun. Met quite a few people at the mixer, had BBQ (with new friends from far away places), and came back to hear some readings. And yes, I’ve been [url=http://www.davidnunez.com/blog/more.php?id=P388_0_1_0_C]cruising again[/url].
