While I’ve been on a trip for the day job this week in downtown Dallas, TX, some of us found time to check out of the action and head over to catch Star Trek a second time.

A Mind Blowing Gift

Words cannot express the birthday present I was given today. I have a dual trip to Californiacoming up in June – first to CalConnectto represent NASAon the standards body board there in Redwood Shores, then WWDC2009.
