Uh oh. I’ve been outed. Looks like people are reading this. I guess I’ll have to watch what I say from now on. Not.
I’m packing up the whole family this AM for a trip to the snow. The one thing I miss about living in Calif is snow – I grew up in Providence – but at least we’re only a few hours from the mountains. We take the kids up each winter so that they have some little experience of what that white stuff is they read about in books. Unfortunately they’ll never know the joy of a school snow day.
I’m not a skier but Jennifer is, and the kids will get their first lessons this weekend. I’m going to go tubing then be a lodge bunny. I’m taking the computer but I don’t think I’ll have internet access, so no blog until Monday night when we get back.
Note: the post time is not a typo. I’m up late (or early I guess) writing up the notes from the negotiation to send to Greg. Next step is a deal memo, then the lawyers nitpick the contract for a few weeks. I’m sure we’ll have a deal by April 1 – that’s when the old one runs out. Even if we don’t my new duties will start then.
There will be some changes to my schedule as part of the whole channel redesign. I can’t really talk about them – they’re not public knowledge yet – but it will all happen with the launch of TechLive on April 2. I will be on the air more, not less (a lot more, 12-15 hours a week instead of 8, and I’ll be back to five days a week), and doing some different stuff, too. I’m really looking forward to it. Some of the changes are painful, as well – no more solo stuff, for instance. But that’s how change is. I’ll talk more about it once it happens. And since I don’t think anyone from TechTV reads this, I promise to be candid!
BTW the TechLive set is coming along. You’re not going to believe it. It’s amazing! It’s a whole new world.
