Gaming as a service

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

There are always a lot of people panhandling and busking on the Pearl St. Mall here in Boulder. But today, as I walked along with the first drops of rain starting to flick through the sky, after a good lunch with a good Rosetta Stone friend, I saw a funny thing. Someone sitting with a chessboard, willing to play anyone who walked by and was interested, donations accepted.

That’s really awesome.

How to spend a summer’s day

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

In this case: watching a cricket game up in Longmont with a few friends and the following picnic:

  • cucumber sandwiches
  • bread, cheese and pâté
  • hobnobs and McVitie’s digestives
  • Pimm’s
  • mustardy potato salad
  • treacle tarts
  • nutella

There was nothing not good about this.
