Since I've been away from blogging for a few days, I've therefore failed thus far to acknowledge good news for the guy whose blog inspired me to launch this blog in parlaying his long experience of blogging into paid work: Sean Meade will be Project Editor for the Aviation Week website, concentrating on defense tech (if I'm reading it correctly). I guess that means Sean will now be the resident expert in flying machines that can kill us all? That's very cool, and I wish him the best of luck. It's always nifty when a person gets to make money doing something that's genuinely interesting to them.
I will, of course, be closely following Sean's work over there to see if he manages to sneak in anything like "Maybe smart bombs don't exist, but rather subsist!" (That's an unimaginably lame in-joke that only the six people who were in a certain class in college with Sean and I will get.)
Anyhow, go give Sean some congratulations. Or he'll sic the bombers on you. He can do that now. (I'm a little surprised that they send out launch codes to any G-mail address, but hey, Google probably had the launch codes years ago.)
