But I haven’t been blogging. I’m not sure how many hours I spent on airplanes over the last couple months, but it’s more than I care to calculate. The airplane time, coupled with the fab iPad birthday gift have led me to be above average when it comes to the One Book, One Month Challenge. […]

I finally read a book by Malcolm Gladwell.  Likely prompted by Jeff reading What the Dog Saw.  He hasn’t blogged about it yet (hint, hint) :).  It was good.  Reminded me of an extended version of Radiolab (awesome NPR show/podcast) or a TED talk.  Random cool information that makes you think.
