Just in time for the end of April

April 30, 2008

It has been close to a month since the last post. April is the month of meetings and this month was no exception. After a month of holidays and arriving back April 7th it has taken 3 weeks to feel somewhat comfortable back at work. The physical and email in-baskets are under control finally.

Something that really bothered me in my travels was the lack of wireless Internet access in so many places. Copenhagen and Barcelona had limited access. The airports were all over the place. Some hotels had it, some didn’t have wireless, some only had landlines. And then there were some with fees of up to $14.95 per day. If there is anything needed in this day and age it is inexpensive free or cheap wireless access. You don’t know how wired you are until you are unplugged.

BarCampBankBC has been announced for September 20 – 21 in Vancouver, B.C. The wiki is already filling up with people and Tim, William and I haven’t sat down together yet. It is exciting to think of who will attend and we are hoping for a good turnout. But BarCampBankNE showed me that you didn’t need a lot of people to make a successful event.

You know it is spring with the NHL playoffs and the tulips in bloom. The weather hasn’t been the warmest but it is around the corner. Right?

    Hi Gene,

    We had such a good time at BCBNE –
    I wish I could join you in BC.
    But I’m sorry to say
    My boss says no way
    So I guess BC is not in the tea (leaves)

    (In honor of the last day of National Poetry Month in the US)
