So I'm back from a short break away.
Technically I never made it away from work - felt more like I was working remote from another country. My Blackberry never left me so my emails kept reaching me. Sometimes I admire people who are able to turn off their cell phones, PDAs or any other device that promotes instant communication.
Maybe next time I should leave the Blackberry at home and travel without it. I might just try that when I head over to Asia next week. I intend of having some actual time away, so this means I will be working around the clock before I leave - fortunately I have our team taking care of things while I'm gone. Good to have reliable people around.
One interesting note is that on my way back from San Francisco I was flipping through National Post and saw my friend's company featured in one of the articles. The company is called Polar Mobile and it looks like they're doing really well - congrats!
Good things happening all around :)
