Summer of ’09

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

I start my dream job in Washington DC in September. Just signed a lease in Vienna (no commute!). I’ll post more about that some day. Until then, I’m having some fun and I’m posting it here rather than sending a mass email. Hopefully I don’t have a stalker. June 14 Graduation. Family stuff June 15 […]

CA State Parks now include Kitchen Sink! (aka WiFi)

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

This is incredible (press release). A couple years old but I’d never seen it. Ed Abbey may be spinning in his grave, but State Parks have always been the piece of our land management system that compromises for convenience and accessibility. In some ways they’re the gateway drug that helps urbanites understand land management and […]

Restaurant Guide to Park City, UT – by Casey

Friday, July 18th, 2008

I don’t live in Park City anymore, but that doesn’t mean it’s not the best ski or mountain vacation in the world. When I moved there I was struck by the lack of a good local guide to nightlife and restaurants (sorry, Park Record/Flipside, you suck). I dabbled with making one but decided to spend […]

Don’t stare at the rocks

Saturday, March 31st, 2007

I haven’t posted in a while. Oh well. I made a connection that seemed profound as I was falling asleep last night and thinking about how fortunate I am. Don’t stare at the rocks. This was the first useful piece of advice I received when I was learning to mountain bike. It works like magic. […]

Buon Giorno

Friday, June 2nd, 2006

I’m in Italy, and it kicks ass. I came here with my parents and spent 3 nights in Florence and then moved to Venice. So I’ve gotten all the tours that cost money and good food and stuff. Lots of good food. And Chianti. Tomorrow I head back to Florence to meet two of my […]

I went on a camping trip and took lots of pictures, so I should post them. But I’m leaving early tomorrow morning for Kona, Hawaii, so they’ll have to wait until I get back. I uploaded one picture just to make the post pretty. It’s me attempting to fly. I guess the F18 Hornet we […]

Hella Math

Sunday, March 26th, 2006

This weekend was fun. On Saturday I got up at 6am to go to LA (conference at Occidental) and give a talk on the Electoral College (based on my thesis, yeah I give that talk a lot). It went well because I gave the exact same talk in my Math Forum class on Monday, and […]

Spring Break!

Tuesday, March 21st, 2006

I had a spring break. It was cool. I caught up on all that stuff I’d meant to do last fall. Except my statistics course. Still working on that one. I also snowboarded Mount Baldy and it was great. Accidentally when down a rocky cliffish thing but only my snowboard got hurt (poor boardy). Next […]
