Yes, I am.

Joana and I went to see Kathy Griffin last week in Cupertino. Hys-terical. She's simply awesome (and yes, I am straight). Perhaps the funnier moments were her anecdotes about boy-toy Woz, who was obviously a crowd favorite (being, well, in Cupertino). It guess it didn't surprise me when she asked the crowd how many people were millionaires and the number of people that actually clapped. Really? You feel the need to respond? I guess those are the same people that drive BMWs with vanity plates. Oh wait.

The Slingbox looks really interesting. I may have to ask for one for xmas. In an interesting twist on time-shifting and long-distance romance, it will allow Jo and I to watch TV together off my TiVo. I'm sure they never thought of that. Now all we need is a teleporter.

Google continues to do really cool stuff. I'm sorry, as a user I think it's cool.

Kudos to Marc Cuban for fighting DirecTV and keeping HDNet on the regular HD package, rather than the $5.99/mo HD Extras package. I'm a shameless fanboi, I admit it (yes, I'm straight).

We're spinning Camino 1.6a1 and it should be out in the next week or so. I hope now that Gadgets has shipped I'll be able to spend some more time helping the cause. Leading two projects at once (not counting Camino) is not fun, let me tell you. Add that to teaching my class and.....thankfully Jo is still talking to me.
