The last couple months have been fun, yet busy, no doubt.  Been traveling a lot, working a lot, partying a lot, and learning a lot. In late June/mid July I traveled Laos and Cambodia.  When I returned, I had a few days to catchup on work, spend time with friends, and pack for a month trip to the US. In late July, I flew into Las Vegas for Rubik’s Worlds, spent a week there, then flew to Denver for 3 days.  Had a quick trip there to drop off my goods, then headed to Minnesota for a family reunion, which was excellent.  2 days ago I returned from that trip, and now I am in Denver until the 22nd, before heading back to Bangkok.  I have lots of projects to work on, lots of friends to see, and I also plan to climb Longs Peak and perhaps do a trip up to Ft. Collins.

I’ve been reading a lot, and have a nice list coming up: Freakonomics, Predictably Irrational, 1491, and The World Until Yesterday. I’ll see if I can post some thoughts after I finish.  I have a few trip reports in the works including my trip to Myanmar (Burma) in June, and a recap of my trip to Laos/Cambodia.  Stay tuned.

Good reads and views over the last month: 

  • The Great Porn Experiment: Gary Wilson at TEDxGlasgow. Porn is very addictive, and it is changing society as we know it. It is arguably the biggest hidden addiction in society, and it isn’t getting any better.  Excellent watch – only 15 minutes.
  • Dan Pallotta: The way we think about charity is dead wrong. Take 15 minutes to watch this, then share it.  Make the world a better place.
