Europe, Switzerland, OLPC, Boston, Canada, etc

I've been busy: briefly catching up with lots of friends around Europe, clearing Swiss immigration, exploring Switzerland by bike and by foot, working with Mitch on the OLPC-1.5 rev-A2/B1 firmware, meeting interesting people in Boston, going to a great wedding in Canada, and so on.

The highlight has been a quick cycle tour from near Zürich (Pfäffikon) through Davos and Flüela Pass to Vulpera near the Austrian/Italian borders. Hiked some beautiful mountains, picked lots of wild berries, and got introduced to Kaiserschmarrn at a friendly alp.

I'm extremely happy with my new touring setup: a Specialized road bike, a Deuter Superbike backpack, a waterproof sleeping bag from REI ("just add forest" one-piece camping kit), and bugger all else. France, Germany, Austria, Italy: I'll ride to you soon :-)

Current agenda: ECLM on the weekend and then finding a more permanent home than Juho's couch in Zürich.
