Stuff

Very sad news about Steve Jobs. The creativity, clarity and foresight he brought to Apple remain an inspiration to many of us, most certainly the many millions who use Apple products, but also those, who like me, were inspired by the human touch he gave both Apple technology and Apple business. Thank you, Steve, for the countless ways you enriched our lives. We will miss you.

Kirby’s Story

Yesterday, we posted a photo of Kirby with his paw on guardian Avi’s Ego messenger bag.

You guys really liked Kirby’s photo (we did too), so we asked Avi to tell us more about Kirby. Here’s Kirby’s story:

Duwamish River Festical (this Saturday in Seattle)

Rita's first trip with her Aeronaut

One of the things we appreciate most about our new location in the Georgetown district of Seattle is our proximity to the Lower Duwamish River. We can grab tacos from a truck and head over to a park overlooking the river for lunch to see osprey, otters, and herons. The Duwamish River does need our help: in 2001, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) listed the Lower Duwamish River as a federal Superfund site. That’s where the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition comes in. And this Saturday, the DRCC will host the Duwamish River Festival, a multilingual educational festival focused on the health of the river and its surrounding communities. Enjoy a walk-bike-paddle event, music and dance performances, food, kids’ art activities, kayak and boat rides, amongst other cool stuff.

Will we see you (Seattle folk) there? We hope so. It should be lots of fun.
