6th Avenue Heartache

It’s been a hard few days. I expect there will be more of them in the future.

I can’t do anything for Jeff as he lies in ICU at a Birmingham hospital. I can help his wife Amy by making sure she’s taken care of when I’m around her. Did she eat? Does she need time alone? Did she get enough time with him during visitation?

Return from SFO

Suzan and I spent the past week in San Francisco with friends and had a wonderful time.  Our trip combined time with friends, travel to a city filled with great photo opportunities, an escape from the summer heat of Georgia and a celebration of my wife’s birthday.

My first travel documentation task is to upload over 400 photos, then I might be able to get trip memories put onto the site. Watch this space for details …

Geek Culture Survey

My good friend Joyce is conducting a “geek culture” survey.

The purpose of this survey is to gather demographic data about geek culture.  I will be collating the data into a presentation in order to introduce geekdom as a subculture to a masters class on intercultural communication.  There are 18 questions; the first 11 are standard demographic info; the rest are specific to geek culture.  None of the questions are mandatory, but I hope that you will answer them all.

It’s an experiment, and we know how much our fans like science 🙂
