Columbus sailed the ocean blue. Course, half my degree is about what an unmitigated myth that whole story is, but that part is technically correct. It’s about the only part that is in the conventional wisdom but hey ho. You know what else is technically true? I am technically on top of everything right now! Yay. I, really need to stop blogging at almost midnight. I have absolutely slipped, both before and during this latest illness, and I need to arrest that trend as soon as I can, especially with deadlines coming up.

But I’m also starting to come around to what story I want to tell next in my writing. I bought Feng-hsiung Hsu’s book ‘Behind Deep Blue: Building the Computer That Defeated the World Chess Champion‘, so I’m starting to do more active research on the topic that I would love to turn into a stage performance. I haven’t written a script in quite some time, over ten years, but fortunately my partner is insanely prolific at writing them so I have a good tutor on standby. Guess we’ll see if this story idea pans out.
