After many years of using…

After many years of using the Reddle theme on my WordPress site I’ve decided to shift to the “famous”* P2. I want something light, easy, as simple to use as Facebook for example but of course I want to own/control/retain the data myself vs. having Facebook do it. Will anyone else show up to collaborate with me? Probably not. I’ve also thought about moving most of my content to a separate space and restricting access so I can enjoy the things I like about Facebook (discussions, photos, keeping up with distant/former friends) without the bad stuff.

Give me a shout if you’re interested in talking more about this.

At this remove I have no idea where I went riding. Switzerland? France?

8 years ago – Venice water taxi

K had never been to Venice and before we left Europe (that time!) we needed to fix that. Wonderful trip. If you have the means, I highly recommend taking the water taxi from the airport to Venice proper. Yes, there are other ways. But this is just better.

10 years ago – waiting for election results

We lived in Paris at the time and were a bit disconnected from what the feel was. It was a long day hitting the refresh button on the browsers, waiting for the final call that the U.S. was moving in the right direction after so many wrongs.

24 years ago – starting at Microsoft

There are probably better ways to remember these things, but there you go – for 12+ years I have posted things in Facebook and it does a nice job reminding me. Given the privacy issues I’m beginning to pull these things out and publish them on a site that in the end I own. Even if, ironically, the content is public.

Sanitas Valley Trail

Check out my activity on AllTrails.–2?p=21487775

Surprisingly tough hike. Boulder is so lucky to have something like this so close by.

Mateo – Boulder

We’ve eaten here before but tonight was a quick happy hour menu… this is a very, very nice burger. The fries are correct.

If I had a complaint or two, a nit… the bacon is not great. And it needed a touch more salt.

Still, very nice.
