I had to make an important choice this week, one that I don’t regret: Attend the Lisbon conference or stay at home and attend to my business and do something very important with my son. See below.
We think it looks just as good as the original. Tonight we had the Pinewood Derby weigh in, and thanks to furiously tweaking the weight with lead shot and sinkers and a digital postal scale, we came in at exactly 5.0 ounces (142 grams), the legal limit. Let me tell you, trying to get four nails aligned perfectly in a block of wood so that the car rolls straight isn’t as easy as it might look.
That, and the only sitting Pikachu figures I could find come from Japan as key chains. Thank goodness for Ebay. I’ve never quite understood his fascination with Pokémon, but I gotta tell you, the look on my son’s face when I produced this little monster for the drivers seat today was priceless.
Tomorrow is the big race, wish us luck.
It seems like the folks at Lisbon were having fun too, Steve Goddard provides this video. Congratulations to Judith Curry.
