Every time I've passed Lake Dillon on I-70 in the winter, I've wanted to take this shot. Fortunately this morning we were staying in nearby Frisco so I got up before the sunrise to get the more colorful morning light. Unfortunately, I drove past the scenic overlook the first time and had to turn around in Silverthorne, so I missed the first pink light. I was glad I brought my tall boots as I had to wade out into the snow with the tripod. I took a few shortcuts with the panorama because it was -4F and I was freezing! But Lightroom was remarkably forgiving of my stitching together 6 vertical frames shot in auto exposure instead of manual.

I gave away most of my O'Reilly shelf when I moved to Peru, but I've been missing some of these, especially now that I'm spending a lot more time on the command line in Google Cloud Platform virtual machines. This HumbleBundle O'Reilly deal was a ridiculously cheap way to purchase back all my missing Unix books!

Area 1 Security analyzes over 3 billion events per day with Google Cloud Platform (especially BigQuery), performing queries on 100TB of attack data in under a minute (!).

I'm super happy to be back at Google. I will be teaching courses on the Google Cloud Platform. See you in class!

I lived for 10 years in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, at the very beginning of the WWW. At the time, I thought my career would have done better had I lived in Silicon Valley, but I didn't (and still don't ) want that for my family. It turns out I was closer to the origin of the Internet than I knew. Recently deceased Leo Beranek was one of the founders of Bolt Beranek and Newman, which created ARPANET, and it turns out he was from Cedar Rapids, too! #DontUnderestimateIowans

Speaking of photography, I was also accepted last month as a resident artist at the Denver Photo Art Gallery colocated with John Fielder's Colorado at 833 Santa Fe Dr. If you're in the Denver area, stop by to see my best prints in the large.

I recently switched my photography Web site to FineArtAmerica.com as it's very inexpensive and has really nice features for visualizing the final piece, whether framed, canvas, etc. Enjoy!
