Five Things

I don't want to let James down, so here are five things you probably don't know about me:

My paternal grandfather's great-aunt, Ann Gillies, was the mother of Robert Parker, also known as Butch Cassidy. That makes him my second cousin. My family is still firmly rooted in Beaver, Utah.

My first computer was an Atari 800.

In my senior year at the University of Utah, I attended the infamous Pons-Fleischmann "Cold Fusion" press conference.

I launched Fort Collins's Summer Ultimate Frisbee League in 1995, and met my (now) wife at a league game in 2001.

We almost moved from the Fort to Riverside, California, at the end of 2005. Each of us had excellent job offers that were painful to turn down -- my wife from UCR, and I from UCR/UCLA -- but decided in the end that the congestion, pollution, and politics of the Inland Empire were unbearable.

Howard, Allan, Paul, Tom, you're it.

Update: Well, that was fun, but one meme is enough for me. I don't think I'll spread any others.
