We're off to Beijing, China. I'm going to be meeting with the Sun development team that's working on Mozilla and Deanna's going to be siteseeing, etc.
Last day in Japan. The conference was a smashing success with about 200 attendees, great discussions and some cool demos. Meeting the Mozilla-gumi was a blast. A few days of vacation in Tokyo, Kyoto, Hakone, Himeji and Takayama (thank you so much, Deanna!) did me worlds of good. I'll post more details and photos of the Japan that Deanna and I traveled and enjoyed (thanks for the camera, Dawn!) when I get near a better connection.
My first earthquake (nc40133364)! It was awesome for a first-timer like me; just big enough to know it wasn't my imagination and not so big as to scare me or cause damage to my home :-)
I know I'm late to the party with this but it is so right on that I had to link for any one that visits here and hasn't seen it. Peru kicks some MS tale.
My wife, Deanna Pierce, just joined the wonderful world of blogging. I hope that she can keep something of a travel journal there during our trip because I know that I won't.
It's done (we're so close!). I'm exhausted. I'll sleep some. Then it's off to Tokyo and Beijing.
Life is very interesting for me these last couple of years. I've discovered a passion and been given the oportunity to pursue it. I've made it through several rough transitions and managed to keep some of that passion in tact.
I owe a lot to the great people that I get to be around. I should say thanks more often and today I'll do some of it. Two people that have contributed heavily to bringing me to and through these interesting times have my greatest appreciations and thanks. My wife, Deanna, who has supported me in every endeavor since we first met, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. A friend and our fearless leader, Mitchell Baker, thank you for taking the chance on me and for your continuing guidance in this wacky world.
My pal Ian (& someone for whom I have great respect) has started a blog called Hixie's Natural Log. He built it all himself (and out of Bugzilla no less!). It's in my blog links over there to the left so check it out regularly.
Words from the master: "It was if all of the forces of nature aligned to aid me in victory". Tony Jordan, you're the man!
