Wedding on Pottery Barn blog

Pottery Barn featured our wedding on their blog! They posted a cute writeup and a bunch of pictures from our album. Thanks guys!

All the outreach credit goes to our wedding planners, Janece and Lori at Every Elegant Detail. After asking Gina to marry me, finding and hiring them was easily the best wedding decision we made. We couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Good times, great memories. Love you, Gina! Here’s to many more years together!

China outsourcing to the US

The AP reports on a growing trend of Chinese companies outsourcing jobs to the US, reversing our long-lived habit of outsourcing to China. Reminds me of similarly surprising news that net immigration between the US and Mexico hit zero a couple years ago.

Globalization doesn’t play favorites, no matter how hard activists protest. Living standards and cost of labor rise in other countries? The world adapts, expectations be damned.

Tel Aviv surfing club

My sister told us a great story yesterday. She surfs at Half Moon Bay regularly, and she met up with a girl from Tel Aviv who learned to surf with the unofficial Tel Aviv Surfing Club. The far eastern edge of the Mediterranean doesn’t really have waves to speak of, though, so they spent all their time practicing paddling.

When she moved to California and discovered the Pacific Ocean’s waves, she called her surfing buddies back in Tel Aviv and said, “Oh my god, you guys, you have to come out and surf with me! There are actual waves here! This is what we’ve been training for!
