Katie Salen’s keynote at STIA was very cool.
I’m over my blogging time limit, so I’ll let the video speak for itself, but also check out q2l.org
Spring is here?
Green eggs, no ham
Happy hour for moose

A nice break was provided by these two visitors, right on schedule for the annual ravaging of a crabapple tree in our yard.
That’s a cow and her baby. Mama is really big – bigger than our 1200lb draft-cross horse anyway.
A spiny treat
No time to write anything lately, so here’s a pic of an elk thistle, in a rocky chute at almost 10,000 feet in Beehive Basin, near Big Sky, MT. In 1870, Truman Everts was lost in Yellowstone for 37 days, and survived largely by eating these.
