It’s been a while since my last post. In the meantime, I’ve been helping a friend get his blog up and running. It’s been just two weeks since it launched, and his traffic has been growing consistently. Interestingly, his readership tends to trend upward from Monday through Friday, with an expected sharp drop off over the weekends. We’ll see if this trend continues.

I am also planning a couple of important work meetings and presentations over the summer. I just booked my flights on,, and Expedia. I’ll be going from SF->NY->London->Kiev->Simferopol, and then giving a presentation at Crimea 2008 Then going Simferopol->Kiev->Prague for a presentation at Caslin 2008 and then heading from Vienna->London->Chicago->SF to get home. It should be an intense week of travel, meetings, presentations and conference-going, but I’m looking forward to it.
