    I am getting better every day. The doctors were amazed at both my blood
    pressure and heart rate for a man my age. Tomorrow will be the first two
    follow ups. Hopefully, I can get back to training and running. But for
    now, I am limiting myself to 5K steps a day walking.

    Getting there – slowly but surely.

  2. Phillip Banks says:

    Thanks Brian! You feeling better?

  5. Phillip Banks says:

    We’ve got you covered. Actually, we just worked on something that takes all
    the pics off a camera like yours and puts a watermark on each image. That
    could be useful to you.

  6. Thomas P Johnson says:

    I know, right? I wish I could do all that stuff, well at least some of it.

  7. Phillip Banks says:

    Your little cousin is doing big things Thomas!

    *Undefinable Me, Undefinable You*

    A really amazing and inspiring +O’Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) keynote
    given by Keila Banks. Listen to her thoughts on labels, as they apply to
    her and the world at large. And maybe, join her in being undefinable.

  16. Keisha “Kee” Mathews says:

    This 13-year-old programmer wowed 4,000 people with an inspiring keynote
    speech on stage at the OSCON developer’s conference blowing the room away.

    Her speech was called “Undefinable me.”

    Keila Banks is a coder, hacker/modder, blogger, video editor, former
    cheerleader, athlete and international speaker.

    “How would you define someone like me? Or some like you, too?” she asked
    during her speech. “You don’t. And that’s why I like to call myself
    ‘undefinable.'”

    And the crowd cheered.
