They say that on the Web, everyone's an author, but no one's an editor. I
am an editor, so I'm pretty regularly, yet randomly adding text and
pointers to this page and the pages below it. These pages started as an
attempt to organize my favorite Web sites, as well as a way to share info with
networked friends and colleagues. If you find anything useful or entertaining
here, enjoy! And I promise that other than one particular link, this is a
relatively pun-free zone.
After 11.5 years at MIT, I now work at SpeechWorks International, Inc
(SPWX). (formerly Applied Language Technologies). I started January 1997 as
their technical documentation and training specialist. I write product
documentation for our speech recognition libraries. And I helped my husband get a job here.
In August 2000, Michael and I vacationed in Maine with my parents. We
took a Caribbean cruise in May with his parents and sister. We also traveled a
lot of weekends August-October for weddings and my high school reunion.
In August 1999, Michael and I visited my folks in NC for a few days
(wedding planning), and his folks in FL for a few days (relaxing).
Before that (1997), I deviated from my pattern and traveled to
Budapest in mid-March. Photos are back and digitized, but not yet in
a Web-compatible format.
Then before that (1996) in mid-August, I went to Paris for a week and took
photos of European friends. I took photos of
monuments, museums, and bridges, too.
In late August (1995), I took an Alaskan
cruise with my parents. (I've neither written much or put many photos online yet.)
In early August, 1994, I took a road trip to North Carolina, via DC on
the way down and Philly on the way back. We met lots of net.people in each
place, and I have several photos available.
I grew up in a small
town in NC -- but not
that small! Actually, Reader's
Digest ranked the Hickory-Morganton area (I'm from Morganton) the 10th
best place in the US to raise a family. Thanks, mom and dad! (Boston was #9,
so I'll stick around here for a while.)
The cats never go with us. They
stay home to share a Big Mac.
