I am back from Africa

April 14, 2010

Djibouti was an experience worthy of writing about. It’s too bad I’m not a writer. The flight to & from alone are worth thousands of words.

I was at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, Djibouti. Yes I meant to type that twice.
The US Navy Base is the headquarters for the  Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA). I worked for the DoD in a Navy office with an ID card that said US Army. Go figure.

Long days, hard work, but I learned a lot and meet some great people.


Honoring a Peter Drucker

November 12, 2005

I read the news today on Honorary Unsubscribe that Peter Drucker passed away yesterday, eight days short of his 95th birthday. Yes, we share the same birthday. If you do not know who he is you should read the link. If you haven’t read about Honorary Unsubscribe, you should click here.


Interesting (maybe only to me)

The graphics and images in Microsoft’s new operating system called Vista (formerly codenamed Longhorn) will be designed by Robert Brunner, Apple’s chief designer from 1989 to 1996 and who oversaw the design of the PowerBook line, among many other hit products.
I find this funny because the Icons for Windows XP were designed by Iconfactory which was founded by an ex-Apple Interface Design person. Who now lives in Greensboro, North Carolina.
