Wedding at the Foundry this past weekend. Check out more photos at me ole flickr page.
We're working upstate today. Eric is "working" on his VIP's (very important projects) which today includes Jewel Quest; a tetris-like game fashioned after Indiana Jones.

In other news I've been thinking about the Hadron Super Collider a lot lately, the particle accelerator international scientists are building underground in Switzerland. Starting in June it will smash particles together at nearly the speed of light. Here's a view of the scientists working inside (!):



A lot of critics are raving about the potential it has of a.) creating mini-black holes and/or b.) creating Strangelets, hypothetical particles which if unleashed would quickly turn the earth itself into a smoldering coal of quark. Anything apocalyptic is really my cup of tea. Really good Studio 360 podcast on the topic here.
