Downtown · I mean in the Man­hat­tan sense; I was there Tues­day and hav­ing an hour to spare went for a walk, end­ing up at the South Street Sea­port, from whence this pic­ture ...
Ground Zero Balls · The kinds of balls that go on the ends of ca­bles hang­ing from cranes I mean; don’t even know what they’re called. Th­ese par­tic­u­lar balls and ca­bles and cranes are on the Ground Zero site in low­er Man­hat­tan ...
Fuzzy Clichés and Money · Be­ing an il­lus­trat­ed ram­ble through the last three days, which I spent in Man­hat­tan talk­ing about mon­ey. Some of the pho­tos are the most painful­ly ob­vi­ous clichés and to make it worse fuzzy and blur­ry too. Those ad­jec­tives might ap­ply at least in part to the mon­ey busi­ness too ...
Cab Pix, Joplin and Boyle · I don’t re­al­ly ♥NY that much, but you can’t de­ny that it’s in­tense and ef­fi­cien­t. I was in town re­al­ly for on­ly one work­ing day, but man­aged to speak at the Syn­di­cate con­fer­ence, about which many oth­ers have writ­ten, to sit down with the new Sun Soft­ware CTO (& hence my man­ager) Hal Stern (hey, he can blog, this is gonna work out­), to have a re­al use­ful meet­ing with Adam Bos­worth over at the Google of­fice on Broad­way, to do some Atom busi­ness with a cou­ple of our WG mem­bers and some gen­er­al schmooz­ing with Udell and Scoble and La­si­ca and so on, and to eat an ex­cel­lent din­ner cour­tesy of Nooked. This still left time to walk thir­ty blocks to a nice con­cert fea­tur­ing a Rus­sian vir­tu­oso, Jo­plin rags and a world pre­miere by Ben­jamin C.S. Boyle, whom you’ve nev­er heard of but might soon. More on the con­cert and pic­tures from the cab-ride ...
Geeks@Mets? · I’m trav­el­ing to New York next week, ar­riv­ing at LaGuardia 5:30 PM or so on Tues­day May 17th. I thought rather than strug­gle down­town, I’d cruise over to Shea and catch the Mets at home to the Red­s. Any­one want to go see the game?
