On vacation on Cape Cod, we happened into Fritz Glass and were treated to an amazing demo by Fritz himself as he made some incredible glass platters start to finish. I caught a good chunk of the process here with his permission, but there was so much more in his banter about the Cape, the process of glass blowing, and his history in the art that I didn't have room on my camera for. If you're ever on Cape Cod, stopping in to see him is a great way to spend an hour or two, and the store attached to his studio has beautiful dishes, ornaments, marbles and lots more.

Bre and I shot another video this weekend, this explaining the basics of binary, and I got a chance to show off a skill that I never actually expected to find useful 😉
Sara and I took a Segway tour with "Segs in the City" a few weeks ago when we were down in D.C. We had a great time, and both remarked at just how intuitive the Segways are. You step on the and for 2 seconds you think "this might be interesting," and then you're off! It's really incredible. If you get a chance to try one of these things, it was a cheap, fun way to tour the city, and you really have to ride a Segway once to understand the amazing technology inside them.
