I got a rock.

Or more accurately, we Virginians got 14 of them. That’s what remains in Virginia to mark where the DC property line used to be – 14 of the 40 boundary stones laid out in the late 18th century to indicate the perimeter of the District. I’ve commented in the past how interesting I find all the markers about historical locations so you shouldn’t be at all surprised to hear how cool I think this is.

I love this website. It covers a neat subject and it’s an example of effective design. A nice google maps mashup of the locations, pictures, descriptions, and nothing more than is needed. The only thing it’s missing is credit – who are you, stone tracker?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
