Teaser: riding ATV with Mark Spencer
I decided to take a trip to spend some time with Mark Spencer. Many of you may know Mark from "Digium/Asterisk". David Skok, our investor at JBoss is invested in Digium. Mark lives in Huntsville, Alabama, NASA town, where men are men, drive trucks, pack guns, fix old school car engines, and can design motherboards with their eyes closed.
Mark recently purchased 42 acres of land, with his own ATV track. At the entrance he has his own flag pole with the Asterisk flag. In the picture you see the two of us getting ready for an ATV session that was a bunch of fun. I didn't know I could have so much fun on a ATV. I didn't get to shoot the gun he has, next time. It was all really pretty cool.
Anyway, this is also meant as a teaser. Why meet with Mark? well he is a genius at hardware design. Let me just say that I am forcing myself into working on a new project. It involves hardware and home automation. Nuff said, let's see if we can get our act together and pump some innovation out in the field. Stay tuned alpha geek friends.
