Great review of a solid book... Wish more people were reading it.  I also wish Eggers had been a little more engaging at the end.

Hans' dream went supernova last week! Blew past funding and kept going!

Be sure to check out this project and reserve one before they are gone!

Seen the latest Apple ad for the holidays?  I did, and I thought it was a great ad for Google Glass.

Awesome! Dr. Khan and his staff are the best around. Kind, patient, personal. I LOVE GOING TO THE DENTIST... and not in a Little Shop of Horrors kind of way. :)

I've been searching NoVA for proper espresso for four (4) years. Seriously, four years. I finally found a perfect cup with amazing service at the Clifton Cafe. The Clifton Cafe is located in an old house in the historic center of Clifton, VA. It's a small place where everyone seems to know everyone and unlike most of NoVA it is not crowded with people. Just friendly folks. Of course, the spro is what I'm here for and I haven't been disappointed after several visits. In general, most of the proper cafes in NoVA (when you can find them) serve espresso in the ristretto style, which is to say half the water you ought to use. The barista's at Clifton Cafe are doing it right. My triple was in fact a triple. The extraction was perfect. The crema was thick and held for quite some time. It's the kind of espresso everyone ought to enjoy. They've recently added a beautiful and spacious patio that boasts full morning sun but is shaded during the afternoon. They have a full selection of breakfast foods and amazing lunchtime sandwiches. This patio feature and the consistently awesome espresso is why I've taken the time to write this review. The main cafe is a bit small, but the addition of the patio is just what was needed. Really, if you're a transplant to the area or just in search of a great coffee experience drop in here and check it out.
