Shoreline Cinemas wins the "show must go on" award. During the course of the movie, a pool of water slowly accumulated in the theater, eventually forcing us out of front row seats and covering some aisle lights. Every now and then theater staff came in, confirmed that nobody had drowned yet, and went back out.

I couldn't get a great picture but these are the closing credits reflected in the pool.

Makes me happy to see this--I've been involved one way or another with Friends House Moscow for nearly 20 years.

If  told you that any K-12 student in the US can get full access to all O'Reilly books and videos via a free Safari subscription, you'd be looking for the catch.  There isn't one (except that it's only open to US students - sorry. If anyone has ideas about how we can validate young people in other countries, we can explore adding them.

 +Andrew Savikas explains how this came about. Congratulations to the Safari team, especially +Keith Fahlgren, who took the bit in his teeth and figured out how to make this happen.  I particularly like how the Safari team figured out how to make this an internet self-service play rather than something we had to work through bureaucratic channels.

And thanks to the folks at the White House, who used their convening power to get a whole lot of donations to help kickstart better STEM education in America.
Safari is providing K-12 students and teachers open access to books, videos from O'Reilly Media as part of $100M White House ConnectED commitment. Read More...

Story
Introduction
Quaker software quality assurance engineer in Orange County. I work for a company in the catastrophe modeling business, and have past jobs in the computer security field. I do not speak for my company; this is a purely personal social media account.
 
Outside work interests include Quakerism, politics, languages, mental health issues, African news, hiking, and writing. Being Greek-American and able to read both German and Greek, I've been blogging a lot lately about the Greek debt crisis. Occasionally I sing opera arias.
Bragging rights
Computer professional with experience in UNIX and Windows, computer networks, computer security, cryptography, Automation, Java, Visual Basic, C, IBM Rational Clearquest, IBM Rational Functional Tester, Visual Source Safe, WindowsXP, Vista, Linux, UNIX, SQL Server, XML, Perl. Human languages include German, Greek, a little Russian, and just enough dimly remembered Chinese to tell whether something's written in traditional or simplified characters. Back in 1992, sent my husband off to work with peace groups in former Yugoslavia, and joined him for the last three weeks of that.
