Thailand and Cambodia 2005

Marsha and I are leaving tomorrow on a three week trip to Thailand and Cambodia. We are attending the wedding of our nephew Andrew in Bangkok next week. Then we travel north to Chiang Mai for a week and then to Siem Reap, Cambodia to see the Angkor temples. This is a whole new experience for both of us, having never traveled to Asia as tourists (I went to China on a 7 day whirlwind business to Hong Kong and Shanghai in 2000). In addition to our standard real-time travelog, this trip we are trying something new: Travels with Harry and Marsha, an audio podcast. I have my iPod equipped with an iTalk microphone and we plan to record the sounds of our trip along with Marsha's excellent commentary -- I'll also be contributing, but I sound a little too dull to call it excellent.

We can't wait to leave - which explains why I am up at 4:30 in the morning typing this! But, I can rationalize that I am just getting a jumpstart on the 12 hour timezone difference...

Lexington Digital

I have started a new web site, Lexington Digital ( whose focus is my professional activities. I decided on the name because it captured both where I do my work and the focus of my work. Although the tag line is "Innovative uses of computers and networks for small businesses and non-profits", I am interested in projects of any size where I can add value. The web site describes a lot of things I have been working on and can now do for others, large and small, on a contractual basis.
