Jim Gray Is Missing in the Sea

Just found via Scoble that Jim Gray has been missing in the sea since Sunday.

I admire Jim Gray, and I hope he will return safe soon. I am also thinking that I really have and want a chance to meet him in person, but this can wait.

Update 1/31: No news is sad news. I do hope he is still alive, but my mind keeps trying to imagine what actually happened.

Vacations, Sweet Vacations

I have been on vacations since December 21st, visiting family and friends in my hometown. I am happy to see that most people here are doing better than two years ago. I haven´t met as many friends as I would have liked, but this is because many of them are out of town on their own vacations.

Besides all the happiness that is being here, watching my son interact with his grandfathers and grandmothers, etc., on January 3rd I had some wonderful news:

I got an offer from my favorite company to work with my favorite technology. Still, I can hardly express how it feels!
