Yep. Christine & I are flying all the way to Boston for dinner next week. We’re attending a special dinner hosted at MIT for the most serious of the MPrize donors. Both Aubrey de Grey and Ray Kurzweil will be speaking at the dinner. We look forward to hanging out with them and the many other very forward thinking individuals that will be attending.

I wasn’t planning on going, but then I discovered I had exactly enough air-miles to get two tickets, and when I checked for availability, for the first time in eight years, I actually was able to cash in my airmiles for tickets. A true miracle.

We’re very excited to be going. We did add an extra day to the trip to kick around Boston and check out the sights before flying home on Saturday.

    Is MPrize short for Mega-Muffin Prize?

    Are your muffins winning an award in Boston?

    We only care about your muffins, dude.

    Will your muffins be allowed across the border?

    Whatever ….. have fun. Straighten out that professor the Rick Mercer ran into.
