A new brain and cake for my birthday!

Thursday, July 26th, 2007
I spent the day today with Knowledge Management expert, Steve Barth. We're preparing for our upcoming KMWorld presentation: Knowledge Worker Productivity: Strategies & Techniques.

Now there's a unique birthday card!

Upon checking my email, I found that Shelley and Harlan had sent me a birthday brain:

Seeing my name misspelled, I Skyped Shelley to ask if she spelled my last name as "Mac" on purpose.

She apologized and said it was a typo.

I'm not so sure...  I think it's a conspiracy and I think I just might know who's behind this.

Yes, Michael,
you do smell cake...

I celebrated my birthday with Steve and his lovely wife, Ana.

They cooked a nice dinner for me after which, they presented me with not one but four mini-birthday cakes!

Thanks, Steve!

Wishing you all the best on your birthday, with and without your "K"

Cheers,

Shelley

Happy Birthday Eric!

In the photo, which one's Steve and which one's Ana? I could not decide which was the loveliest. And is it Steve or Ana that is your twin brother?

Confusedly,

Nick

Happy birthday Eric! Mine comes on Monday. We'll have to celebrate when we see each other next.

And if Michael was behind the Mac conspiracy it wouldn't surprise me one bit. ;^)

I, on the other hand, am blameless.

"Bon anniversaire" as we say in France.

1963 was a very good vintage! ;)

Thanks. Marc, I look forward to you coming up for a day in the Digital Sandbox. I'm ready to set a date. Perhaps we can get David to join us.

By the way, PersonalBrain looks even better on a Mac!

Well, Pascal, I may just find out sooner than later. My Dell 30" sits unused on my desk. I can't get it to work with my Thinkpad T60p.

If I get a Mac, I'm sure I can count on you and Michael to cheer me on...
