We converged at Nicholas' on Grand Avenue on Portland's East Side, for a couple mezza plates and some turkish coffee.
We discussed gnu math, bizmos, Google, Saturday Academy, TOPS, and Japanese weddings on Guam. Then we adjourned to Burgerville for seasonal strawberry milkshakes.
I'm glad these executive-level meetings don't have to be in rooms that're "smoke filled" anymore.
I also frequented a few of my cyberspace haunts, putting in my usual two cents on the Math Forum.
Good news about those Hawaiian islands getting increased protection. Fragile undersea environments are not easily replaced, yet are easily destroyed by unthinking land animals.
That's maybe another problem with Operation Vendetta: the possibly negative environmental impact. That subtropical island has suffered enough.
