2014 Status Check

Dupont Circle fountain

Aside from the overabundance of snow in D.C. in Q1, 2014 has been a great ride so far. If you’re looking for me on a day-to-day basis, check out InTheCapital, where I stepped on as managing editor in January. It’s a daily news site for info about tech, innovation, politics, education and lifestyle goings on in Washington.

As always, you can find me on Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Facebook as well.

I’ve never seen Gwar or been to the 9:30 Club. Tonight, all of that changes. Advice is welcome.

I grabbed this shot on the way to work last week, but it already looks like it was a lifetime ago.

Elephant at the National Zoo

You know what never gets old? Watching elephants walk around. We stopped by the National Zoo on Saturday and spent a few minutes by the pen.

The highlight of this weekend so far was definitely watching the launch of NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE). Here’s what it looked like over the U.S. Capitol Friday night as it was headed to the moon.

We caught a boat down to Alexandria on Friday. I looked up at the Kennedy Center balcony during the ride and found it hard to believe that it hasn’t even been five months since we were standing up there. It’s been a long, packed summer.

Should we be worried?

It’s not on our floor, but it’s right above the entrance we use every day.

Shark teeth

We pulled these out of the Chesapeake on Saturday. To the best of my knowledge, they’re all from sharks. (Also, I’m testing out some new WordPress image settings as I upload this photo.)

Where to find me in 2013

U.S. Capitol

This is just a beginning-of-the-year signal check to let you know I’m still blogging out of Washington, D.C. If you’re one of a handful of people I’ve bumped into online or off in the last few months, I’m still running the editorial department over at Industry Dive. (Check out Education Dive, Food Dive and Utility Dive, among our many other sites to see what that involves.)

I’ll still be here, as well as on Twitter and Google+ in 2013, writing about some other things, though, so keep an eye out. As always, thanks for reading.

Wild sesame leaves in Washington, D.C.

Posted by – August 12, 2012

Urban foraging is going to need its own category on this blog soon. Last week, we came across a wild patch of sesame leaves near the National Zoo, so I wanted to pass that link along with the Flickr-mapped coordinates for any of you D.C. residents who are reading this.

They’re all next to the river near the trail that leads up to the zoo entrance—and they are delicious in soup.
