Summer hiatus is over. In the 8 weeks since the previous Week Notes we camped in France for several weeks, returned home for two weeks (in which I reconstructed a report for the Serbian government I assumed done before I left), spent a week in Tuscany to see a dear friend get married (and visited friends in Switzerland on the way), and prepared for our birthday unconference and bbq “Smart Stuff That Matters”. The past week was almost exclusively dedicated to the event, after returning from Tuscany Monday evening. Friday and Saturday the unconference and bbq in honor of Elmine’s birthday took place. It was a total whirlwind of interaction again, which left me thankful and inspired. The last guests left this afternoon, and from tomorrow a more regular schedule will recommence.
