Earlier conversation with Ed:
Great publishing-- Springer -- amazing quality of stuff
[your great ideas will not come into being]
until you find the one other person
who balances you
make a presentation at the Sloan school
Dropped H off at South Station after only missing a few turns on the highway getting into Boston, took the rental back to the airport, and returned to South Station via silver line. We've got a system, now.
A is still apartment hunting.
AG doing all right.
Thank the god she doesn't particularly believe in, a good conversation again with K.
She said perfectly what we need: Work for a real company, learn some things we like about how they operate, and all the things we don't like about how they operate, and then do our own thing.

Went out to dinner afterward, came home, had another dinner with K

Our home is being converted to German efficiency.
Went to The Franklin Café with C and J - first time seeing her in a very long time - and had a pretty good meal off their mimeographed, provided-by-request vegetarian menu and good conversation, though i think i talked too much. Resolved to do meet again, if we don't all take a trip to Chicago together or something.
Following a Drupal talk i had a lot of fun giving to a small group at Mass General Hospital, i stayed in South Station out of the rain. (Before the talk, i stayed a bit at Encuentro 5.)

Confirming our talk scheduled in two and one-half hours from now, with an important proviso - if this is a for-fee consult, and i am quite aware that consulting is exactly what people pay you for, i will need to beg off for now or do a deferred payment.
One large, slow-paying client means no expenses until i know i can get money to all the people i already have commitments to-- as in yesterday i canceled dealer maintenance on a ten-year-old Honda Insight hybrid.
