A week into the frog days of summer brings a sense of serenity. It stays light until around 9 pm and the leaves on the trees give morning a smooth calm light. I only wish I was being more productive. I guess that’ll come with time.
I was happy to see that our long awaited piece on the Atari Excavation appeared yesterday on The Atlantic’s website. It’s pretty fun and unlike some of the other media coverage of the dig, its in our own words! Check it out here.
