I read almost 300 books this past summer. I got a Kindle today. I’m rather excited. It’s a lot of fun being unplugged. A little hard to get used to. But Sealegs is giving me a few minutes here to blog. Time’s up!

The idea of flight.
One of my favorite authors, Richard Bach, constantly explored the concept of flight. I believe that we’re all meant to fly. Gravity is just a hurdle we need to cross. Based on this, I’ve got a pretty neat idea for my next massive project. Doesn’t really start till the New Year. Right now I’m just brainstorming.

I thought a lot about this and people have been asking why. It’s a whole lot of little things. Prof. Wayne Cox’s Last Lecture about teaching in a virtual world, my increasing addiction...
Finished up with TEDxQU today. What a phenomenal project. What a wonderful team. What an amazing line-up. Just spectacular. I’ve never considered myself much of a leader.
