My least favorite topic in the world is 'Women in Tech', so I am going to make this short but I think it's something that needs to be said.

We spent the weekend with friends at their house in the San Juan Islands.  It's been a fantastic weekend, good friends, good weather, and fun things to do.

Audrey got to visit the horses and the chickens at the barn, there's a baby swallow in the birdhouse, Audrey and I walked to the pebble beach (and she rode on my shoulders all the way back up the hill).  We got to meet PNG, the dog, a fantastic little keeshond.

And then last night we took the community's private ferry over to see the amazing fireworks show at Lopez Island.  That was the #2 show that I've seen in person (but the #1 show was my senior year of HS, and has a bunch of nostalgia wrapped around it, so judgement there may be clouded).  It was a huge display, and well put together.  And it just kept going, with a couple of false-climax finales, and a truly tremendous finale.  Being on the boat, close enough to feel the launches, was pretty amazing.  Alas, the photos I took (many) are all crap.  Way too much handshake and movement from the boat.  I may post them as abstract curiosities, but they're not good by any stretch.

+Craig Froehle I also have a good editor... (+Aleatha Parker-Wood)

I took about 350 photos (most were fireworks shots that didn't come out), and cut them down to 50 or so, and then Aleatha cut those down to these (and I added back a few of the less-well-composed ones because I liked them even with their flaws).

It has sold millions of copies, is perhaps the greatest novel in the science-fiction canon and Star Wars wouldn’t have existed without it. Frank Herbert’s Dune should endure as a politically relevant fantasy from the Age of Aquarius

I had a great day out shooting the small town of Arco, Idaho yesterday along with photographer +Nils Ribi  Kate Westerhout​ and  Ally Justinak​.  Arco is one of those wonderful small American towns that makes you feel like you are going back 50 years in time.  Arco was built around the nuclear energy industry and was the first town in America powered by nuclear power.

This is a small old abandoned house on the outskirts of Arco that we came across.

Here's yesterday's chickens, while still on the grill (after about 2.5 hours).

I'd turned off the middle and rear burners, and set the front on low, with the tray of wood chips directly on the "flavor bars" (metal covers over the burners that provide the radiant heat for cooking, and give a surface for drippings to vaporize off of (to flavor the meat with).

I used a meat probe in a breast of each chicken, and an ambient probe in the middle of the grill.

Interesting, I found that on low, the front burner didn't give even heat left/right. It was hotter on the right (which was the gas inlet side). I confirmed this when I swapped the chickens from side to side and the "hot" one stalled out for a long time, while the cold one continued to cook.

First time using a gas grill to cook the chickens. Low-temperature control was great, but they didn't get nearly enough smoke, even with wood chips in a pan on the "flavor bars"

3-4 hours at 225 degrees, with lemon slices under the skin, after a day of sitting with salt, pepper, thyme, and sage under the skin, after having been spatchcocked.

Lost in the Bay Area
Introduction
Recovering from returning to the US after a year in Paris..   Due to a wonderful set of opportunities, I'm was able to live in Paris for a year with my wife and daughter.  It was a great adventure.

I like photography, cars, motorcycles, computers, acoustics/audio, and history.  I also find socioeconomic classes fascinating (and an interesting dichotomy from social classes).

Professionally, I connect lots of little things to big things (Internet of Things).

A note to commercial pages:  If you circle me, without me first establishing some sort of relationship (or communication) with you, I'm very likely to block you, and report you for unwanted commercial spam.
