The Egg Man Fell Down off His Shelf.

Table for One
As I have noted on multiple occasions, I took the name for this micro-blog ("S J Refugee") as a sort of play on the fact that, following the birth of our son, we accepted a corporate relocation away from my adopted home in San Jose, California.  Various fac...

A Future So Bright, You Have to Wear Shades?
When the End Comes, All That Will Be Left Is Us Today, I came across this interview given by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.  IMHO, Wozniak was the real brains behind The Fruit Factory, whereas Steve Jobs was the guy who understood what the market wanted, o...

Back to the What?
It's Now 2015, and STILL No "Mr Fusion" One of the fun things about being a parent is getting to re-live certain moments of your youth with neither guilt (due to unabashed indulgence in some of the less-than-adult pursuits) nor nostalgia.  (NB: recall that ...

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'...

Daddy, How Come there Are SO Many People Named "Charlie?"
"Daddy, see that man over there?  And that one?  And that woman?  They all aren't really named Charlie, are they?  And why are they all wearing name-tags that say "Je suis Charlie?  Are these people all going to a first day of school or something?" No, son....

Counting, Counting. Always Counting

The Race to the Bottom to Accelerate?WE
Who Will "Win" this Race in the Valley? I've recently returned "home" to the San Francisco Bay Area after a couple of years living in Paris, France.  During my exile, I kept a very loose eye on the news and developments, which, as Eliza Doolittle ("My Fair ...

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...

Warning: Drawing Kills As just about everyone knows by now, the city of Paris was struck yesterday by its most serious terrorist attack in 50 years, measured by the loss of life.  In the end, 12 people were executed by at least two and possibly three well-a...
