Jealous of Mick LaSalle
Grandkids: First Day For Both


There is a Computer Chronicles story I have been dining out on for decades, especially any time I am being micced up for a TV appearance. My voice is loud and booming. During a sound check, a Chronicles sound engineer once said, "Paul, the reason you wear a mic is so that you don't have to speak directly to the people at home. Could you bring it down a little?"

A related anecdote, in case you've forgotten: Back in 1998, when I joined CMP/UBM to be Managing Editor ("I'm the "ME" in Byte Me"), reporting to and working with you, a CMP/UBM'er who clearly knew us well enough commented (I think to me), "I bet there's not a lot of dead air when those two get together."
She wasn't wrong; I'm only sorry we didn't have more opportunities. (Our being on separate coasts tended to minimize those get-togethers.)

I do remember that. As Homer says. “It’s funny because it’s true.”
