It is my firm belief that if I mash interesting people together,
they’ll most probably have interesting conversations – and if I’m
around to hear those conversations, even better.
I went to IBM, and that turned out to be perfect timing. Laurie
Dillon, Pranam Kolari and Ian Chan all pinged me for lunch. I thought
they should definitely meet each other, so we all met up for lunch at
12 and had a wonderful conversation about IBM intranet goodness and
blogging visualizations. =) That was tons of fun.

James Iveniuk reminded me that we’d planned to have some kind of
barbecue tonight. I invited Jed Smith as well because he’s always fun
to talk to. I grabbed a bunch of vegetables and thawed two of the pork
kebabs in my freezer. He brought pork chops and potatoes. Much fun was
had by all. =)
Speaking of food – I had absolutely wonderful veal parmigiana at IBM
today. I seriously need to learn how to cook that. The Joy of Cooking
would have it for sure…
