Got a tour of the AP newsroom courtesy Yaosh - much quieter than you'd expect. Didn't know it was a non-profit - casual laid back atmosphere. Played pool tonight - ugh; lost 5-6.

Bumming random wi-fi connections while waiting for the cable/internet guy. Between 10-2pm they say (it's almost two, and already been waiting a week). ridiculous - how many other businesses can get away with overcharging you for a service built off of gov

Suffered through two days of real estate broker hell in New York City, sifting through listings and checking out places. Rents are ridiculous (studios over $2K are normal); "according to the broker," there are only 25% as many rental availabilities now as

class day ceremonies; hank paulson of goldman spoke. not bad - some decent advice; basically, keep moral compass and work life balance. as he said, he hasn't met one person whose work success (no matter how great) has compensated for their personal life's

Had final skydecks today in Aldrich; Kevin and a few others made a photo slideshow of the past 2 years. A nice touch and finish. Packing up and tying up loose ends is such a pain; ugh. Taking forever.

Pre-launch of the site (the beta of the beta). Dan already points out an error (can't send the message via email). Whoops.

Back in Boston. Feels odd to be back with no classes; a bit nostalgic I guess. Just packing up and catching up on work. Last night, went to Lanning's get together, organized by Felino. Lots of fun; guest appearance by the KBP and the boss always make for

Staying at Dan's place right now. Back to Boston on Sunday; saw a few places with brokers; ugh. Expensive and not that great. Caught up with Lanning, Felino and Dan at Player's. Jinro = Evil.

Just beat Dan in puzzle fighter 4-3 (2-1); ahh, such a trivial game, but such a sweet sense of success when good-natured competition is involved.

Last day in Germany; went to Weimar and the nearby concentration camp. A bit sobering, but interesting. The German's are so open and transparent about this aspect of their history. Also great to hang out with the crew on the last day. Took the train b

Made it to Berlin after a crazy travel day. Jan had the wrong train schedule, since it was Sunday, so had to get re-routed through several stations and trains, adding an extra ten hours of travel time, after an already long twelve hour flight from HK. Ugh

Last day in HK - just walked around Times Sq. a bit more; had dinner again with the same crew - those guys are hilarious. Avoided another bullet in credit card roullette. Saw a few more old NMH'ers through Anne and Fiona.

Hung out with Donny and George last night in Lang Kwai Fang (sp?); I'm sure I just butchered that. We met up at their friend Susan's place, which was pretty sweet. The expats here have a cushy housing allowance that's use it or lose it, so her place and v

Finally in HK! Frankfurt airport was a mess; no place to plug-in or connect online. I took a chance with the airport showers there; considering I had a 10 hour layover, I figured why not. Actually not too bad. Place here in HK is tiny, but good enough. Re
