Dear Andrew, let us indeed do this. However, "first things first", i.e., let us address The Chicago SCIP 09 conference and then make a smooth crossover to the EU Summit 09. By doing this, we will be able to concentrate efforts and not dilute attention on either conference. My concrete suggestion is to start making noise for Amsterdam at the end of April/beginning of May. Hope this is in line with your expectation. Best! Eduardo
Hi Andrew: Always nice to hear from you, also to hear of the good things you have done/are doing for CI and SCIP in the UK. Please remain the "passionate practitioner!" I've long tried to be the same on the professor side of the career ledger. I hope I'll be able to touch base over there in the UK with you in the near future. Until then, you have my best wishes for continuing success. Craig
Indeed, I just need to get working on actually checking my account here because I have so many networks. Still trying to find that cloud application which ties ALL of them together...not just a % here or % there.
Overall the iPhone has been a great device experience. After 3 years with a Palm Treo that never delivered on its initial promises it's great to be using a device that has, if nothing else, gotten the basics right in a way no other handset I've used has. Nothing that makes the iPhone so nice to use is rocket science-- it's all about execution. I'm very interested to see what Google's Android looks like when the first handsets are put on the market because that is a very different business model that could offer some real benefits over what is still admittedly a very closed model from Apple.
Thanks for the note Andrew. Things are going well with Fletcher/CSI. Great folks to work with.
We are heading to the beach this week and then when we get back I start with my daughter's soccer team. All of our kids swam on our local swim team this year and that just ended last week, and my oldest had football (american) workouts all summer and we had informal scrimmages for my daughter's team on a weekly basis as well. No rest for the weary!
Hope all is well with you and the family. Enjoy the football season!
Definitely a bigger bike! I tore my LCL a month ago playing soccer on an over-40 (years, not players) team and so I doubt I'll be bending my knee like that any time soon. Ironically I played goal all season without a scratch and then they let me out into the field, I promptly got an assist and then five minutes later tore the knee. Getting old is no fun:)
Andrew, welcome to the Ning CI group. It's great to see you here! San Diego was a great conference. We're going to need to rely on some of your experience with the European summit as Derek Johnson and I plan the SCIP 2009 conference in Chicago. The podcast WILL be back after I graduate next month. Ning may end up being a mechanism for me to solicit interviews.
