Tomorrow afternoon, I'm going to take my first paid time off this year. After showing up for work, and working a full day (or more, in two rare cases involving after-hours fun in the server closet) every work day this year so far, I'm going to leave work tomorrow at (or a little after) noon and head up to Steamboat Springs. It's spring break at Walla Walla, so Bethany and Willy (and Bethany's boyfriend) are driving down to meet my parents (who are staying at my house tonight) and Gem and I. The one-bedroom condo we're staying in claims to sleep six adults, which sounds like it'll be a little cramped with the seven we'll have there. Should be fun.

Bitscape, age 26, is a highly sought white hat hacker and an agent of
social subversion. An avid fan of salsa, developer-centric web design,
and cheesy pop music, Bitscape co-creates a world of love and
acceptance by sharing his vision. He enjoys helping low-tech firms
define their offline strategy, and he's advised many anonymous
unknowns, including the homeless on Pearl Street, escaped mental
patients, and hookers on East Colfax. As an aspiring web bum, he
applies his knowledge to a community venture, the Content Collective.
Bitscape resides in Westminster, Colorado, but may soon be moving into
a van down by the river. For speaking arrangements, don't bother
calling. Your bits will be lost in the noise.
