I’ve been on Parental Leave for the last few weeks. The above picture pretty much sums up how it is going. Oh, and safe sleep people don’t worry - Marisa was there and making sure that nothing happened to the... Continue reading

I don't have a lot of super clear memories of my childhood, though it was a pretty good as these things go. I was oblivious about my parent's very rocky marriage (which ended when I went to highschool though it... Continue reading

TL;DR - I'm raising money for colorectal cancer again, so give some money! Fatherhood isn't how I'll define myself, but since I've been home for the last few weeks adjusting to life with Sammy and Declan they have been very... Continue reading

The other day I tweeted about the 7 mile run I did outdoors: I know lots of people run much further than this, but I'm proud of today's run. I have ran this far outside in... A long time. And... Continue reading

As a D&D geek I couldn't resist buying The ABCs of D&D (I also ordered The 123s of D&D but that hasn’t arrived yet) to read to my children (sidenote: that’s still a very strange sentence for me to type!)... Continue reading

On that latest episode of Upgrade a listener asked Jason and Myke how often they change the wallpaper on their various devices (Mac and iOS). This got me to thinking about my lovely iPad Pro’s screen and how I couldn’t... Continue reading

This is mostly a test to see if I can still post via email to my blog. Also, isn't this cute? It cost $2! Continue reading

As I sit here at 1am with a very awake Sammy I noticed the hedgehogs on his onsie. Every time I think about hedgehogs my thoughts turn, as you would expect, to ice cream. Ok, that might need a little... Continue reading

For most of my life I've made special efforts to avoid babies. When a friend has given birth I would visit and say the right things but politely decline if asked to hold the baby. Or feed the baby. Or... Continue reading

Physical is the way to go with technical books, I think. Though I also buy a bunch of physical books too (and go to the library!).

Why? Because I love Kindles, silly! I won't be writing a review of it because I'm lazy and tending to some tiny helpless people, but I will point you to my pal Jason Snell's Kindle Oasis review: Yes, the $120... Continue reading

The Wall Street Journal has an interesting story about baby boomers not being able to sell the giant houses they built. This quote sums up the real problem: The couple, who relocated there from New Jersey, will likely move into... Continue reading

Whenever I pay for something with my iPhone I feel like I’m living in the future, but I’m also slightly saddened. Why? Because of unrealized potential. What the hell am I talking about? Having my credit cards, plane tickets, and... Continue reading

With the babies on the way I thought to myself, "I should really read a bunch of these books I own." And I also but 14 books on hold at the library (and have 3 checked out!). I'm complicated. Continue reading

Scene: I get on the elevator on the 5th floor of my building after running on the treadmill. On the elevator are two people: an elderly woman and man. "Hello." The old lady and man nod. I press the button... Continue reading

View this post on Instagram Twenty-two weeks and five days belly shot while waiting to go on New Day Northwest in Seattle. So far, book touring while pregnant has been totally okay. I need a lot more sleep, food, and... Continue reading

I love milkshakes. There's not avoiding it (in fact, I jokingly suggested we get a milkshake company to sponsor Vulcan Hello the the other day... if you're a powerful milkshake executive reading this, get in touch!). Marisa contends that a... Continue reading

It has been almost 2 years since I decided to drop some pounds and sign up for Weight Watchers. Over those two years I've lost nearly 130 pounds: 40 of those pounds were shed in 2018. Hurrah for me! This... Continue reading

Just the other day I was at dinner with some friends and I was trying to recall how long I'd worked at Penn. I couldn't remember (since I can hardly remember anything) so I did what anyone would: I looked... Continue reading

2018, in many ways, was a pretty crappy year for many people. It was, however, a pretty OK year for me personally and a great year for reading. I managed to read 101 books this year (that’s over 35,000 pages!),... Continue reading

Lots of me (not surprising). Lots of Marisa (she's so cute!). A cat and the Enterprise. Pretty much what you'd expect. Oh, and you can create on of these yourself using Top Nine. You do have to give them your... Continue reading

That's from my run yesterday. I had an average pace of 8:26/mile, which is exciting. And I'm pretty happy with the consistency (well, generally speaking) of my pace on the run: There are a few reasons that I can point... Continue reading
