After almost three weeks I finally got back home to my family last night and it was great to see my kids and wife again. Three weeks is a really long time to be away. But wow what a three weeks it was. First a very successful Collaboration University in Chicago and then repeated in London the week after. I had three sessions on Themes, Dojo & JSON and Tags & Categories inside Quickr. I got positive reactions on all of them but maybe mostly on the Tags & Categories session. More on that in a later posting.
After CU I flew over to Västerås, Sweden to visit my family over there. 5 days of visiting with my father and mother and siblings was just great. In only a few days I managed to eat both moose, Swedish craw fish and Swedish roe deer. All superbly prepared by my sister and sister-in-law. The chanterelle sauce that we had with the roe deer was unbelievable.
Monday evening I left Sweden and flew back to London where Carl Tyler picked my up at the airport and I got to spend a couple of nights with his parents outside London. Tuesday we went to Oxford where we walked around for a few hours looking at the old universities there. Very nice. Thank you Carl (and Carl’s parents) for a couple of wonderful days.
It is great to be out on these speaker engagements and visit friends you only see a few times a year but boy is it nice to back home with family again.
