As you can see below, I went to the BCS Cham­pi­onship Game to watch the Crim­son Tide take the national cham­pi­onship. It was, in a word, sweet. My par­ents flew back up to San Fran­cisco with me to meet Claire, see my apart­ment for the first time, and cel­e­brate my mom’s birth­day. We had a really nice time.

I will not be a Har­vard man, hav­ing received a “no” from their JD admis­sions office. Alas. More good options yet!

I received a really nice award from Google this week for work­ing on these. We also launched the big inter­nal project I’ve been lead­ing, and I was nicely rewarded for that as well. They like me over there.

Mr. Ans­ley will be pay­ing me a visit in SF next week, which will be epic.

I’m pumped about my trip to Aus­tralia with Claire, begin­ning at the end of the month.

That’s it!
