Vegas Baby

I'll be in Vegas on Monday for an up-and-back-in-one-day trip to CAWorld for a Web Services Panel - ostensibly acting in Prashant's stead, no doubt everyone is down at the Microsoft Global Briefing in Hotleans.  But alas, for me, next stop is the Mandalay Bay to talk about challenges in making Web Services happen.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen...

Just saw LxG.  Pretty awesome if you dig that (give or take 40 years) period in literary history.  They created a pretty amazing fantasy world with advanced (re: 1930s) technology blowing away the people of 1899.  The well-read will dig it, but it's got enough action for kids who haven't read The Picture of Dorian Gray.

One interesting linguistic note: In the final scene in Kenya, the Witch Doctor is actually chanting in Zulu (That's SOUTH AFRICA, not Kenyan kiSwahili, and don't get me started on how F'ed up Hollywood treats of little details like this...) and he's saying vuka (voo-ga) which means "Wake up!"
