Seattle, Washington

I'm in Seattle for the next few days. The CALI conference is going on at the University of Washington Law School. With all of the recent moves and trips to and fro it is a bit disorienting being back in Seattle for the first time in more than a decade.

The problem is the back of the seat in front of you when reclined will catch the top edge of the computer and tends to compress the screen.

Cool service

This is a pretty cool service that allows one to make a map of states that one has visited or countries visited.

Places I've Been

It's obvious I still have some ground to cover before the dance is over....
