Whose "Boyhood"?
I don't watch the Academy Awards each year, and in fact, most of the time, I have not seen even one of the movies nominated. This year, however, I had a chance to one of the critics' top picks, the work of Texas film-maker Richard Linklater entitled "Boyhoo...

Silicon Valley Under the Dome (Again)
I have been living away from the so-called Silicon Valley for almost a decade now; I live in Paris, and thus I don't miss life back there terribly, but do try to keep up with the scuttlebutt.  Over the years, I've written several posts about the Bay Area, w...

Vive La Fete
One of the (many) excellent things about living in a foreign land is the chance to learn about and embrace new traditions. Today is the 6th of January; on the  Christian calendar, that means the Feast of the Epiphany.  Tradition holds that it was this 12th ...

Yesterday (17 December) marked the 25th anniversary of the television show "The Simpsons," which debuted on the Fox network on 17.12.1989. 25 years is a long time.  It's about 60 per cent of my life thus far (I was home from college on my freshman-year Chri...

Bang the Drum, Ringo
One of the things I enjoy in my leisure time is running, something I've been up to for 20 years now.  I try to mix up my routines a bit to add a little variety, but also attempt to have some day-to-day reproducibility to allow me to do some benchmarking. I'...

We've turned the page from 2014 to 2015.  An old year is over, and a new one is now five days old.   Right now, it's not at all clear what it will bring.  What new experiences.  The end of what old ones.  Of course, there are some things certain to come.  I...
