An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." - Luke 2:9-12

: "I've been thinking about some ideas to help promote local developers and programmers here in Fresno and getting to know others. One idea I really liked and experienced once was Startup Drinks San Francisco, which was really fun. I was new to the city and I got to meet with lots of developers for some great startups based in the city. So why not here in Fresno?"
- This sort of event is definitely needed. Since writing my Fresno, technology black hole
post I've discovered a LOT of new Fresno based talent, especially in the web and design areas.
Now, all we need to do, is springboard that into a Visalia Geeks Dinner and Drinks!

: "The first day I arrived, in true Portugese style, we had a feast. About 20 people showed up. After the meal the living room turned into a music studio with instruments galore. We played all kinds of crazy stuff, bossa novas, sambas, american rock? Later in the night my cousin Terza took me out for drinks."
- In general the rest of the world really knows how to live. Here in America we're consumed with our jobs and don't really take time to enjoy life.

, is a friend and co-worker. He's taken the plunge into weblogging, finally! I expect great things out of his weblog. Brent has a gift for user interface development, hopefully he'll have time to spruce up his weblog. No pressure Brent.
, a Visio old-timer, decided one cold day in Seattle he should go out and do a bit of Visio advertising in the snow
on the building below us at 520 Pike.
It's a classic.
Thanks for the link Troy.

This week, February 5th and 6th, is the Visio Conference
in Redmond. I'd like to go just to see the new application in action. I don't own a copy of Visio 2007 and I haven't seen what you can do with the new features built around Databases, and random data in general
. Heck, I haven't even seen the new AutoConnect
