Prodigal blogger

Six months since I last posted. Last summer I came home to Alaska from the palm trees of Stanford and re-inserted myself in my newsroom, grateful for a job. Fall came, winter came, now it is spring in Alaska (snow still on the ground, sun shining brightly outside, husband Pete watching the Yankees and Red Sox on TV in the living room.) Feels like I'm a bulb that had to freeze so it could leaf out later. It's time to get back to work on this blog. Hello again!

I can't tell you how many times I thought of you as a frozen bulb, Kathleen :)

Welcome to the thaw.

We didn't cross paths much at Stanford, but I was one of the M.A. students. (We were in Howard Rheingold's class.) I've had your blog in my RSS reader this whole time. I really enjoyed your posts and was sad to see you go on blogging hiatus -- but happy to see you back in action! Being at the front end of this crazy career known as journalism, I appreciate your insights as someone who's in the thick of it.

Ciao Kathleen!
welcome back in the web. Las year I was asking you from Italy about Stanford. Now here I am, in Palo Alto with family, working on a do-it-yourself multimedia project called Italiani di Frontiera, interviewing Italians of Silicon Valley. Now online, (, then a book in Italy.
Too happy, too grateful for your nice advices.
No way to contact you till now, I hope to have you in my blog among Friends of Italiani di Frontiera... Please answer
