Quick Personal Update

I've been meaning to post more here recently, but unfortunately, all I have time for right now is a short update. I had some rather important deadlines to meet in April, so it kept me from doing much else with my life other than work and spend time with the family.

When I have a moment, I do want to talk about a few things, including:

• Local politics. A modified version of my warrant article to regulate political robocalls, Article 20, was approved by the town's Advisory Committee, and I want to say more about that; I also want to talk about an interesting Town Meeting race in my precinct, in which I've endorsed Jonathan A. Karon.

• Fiction. The movie version of "I Remember the Future" is proceeding apace, and the Bulgarian magazine Objects is reprinting the story in their April issue.

The Dan Kimmel Film Festival. At my suggestion, Dan is encouraging people to watch one recommended SF film per month, which he'll then discuss on his blog, Behind the Scenes. Go take a look.

Anything else people want to hear about? Note that I'll be off-line for a few days for Passover.
