Information Roundup – 22 June 2009

Here are the links I’ve tweeted since the last Roundup:

Been going very hard lately. I think summer is supposed to be a time for a little catch up, but I probably agreed to take on a few too many speaking engagements and had a couple of big matters to handle at the same time. I do find getting out and speaking a good way of learning though, and I have no regrets about my last month in that regard.

On the personal front, we’re expecting our second child very shortly. It’s about time, because Hugo (below) seems two going on ten. I just talk to him like an adult now, ’cause he seems to understand everything. Big vocabulary too – good words and bad!

The baby’s due just after Canada Day, and I’m heading out solo to our friends Dave and Janie’s wedding on Cape Breton island that weekend. A certain disaster waiting to happen, but rushing back to TO could also make for a good story. We’ve never been good at keeping things simple!

Take care and enjoy the links!
