Life Updates - Malibu Fire and personal branding

This is the first time, in all the years of Malibu fires, that our family has had to evacuate. My sister called and asked if I wanted her to pack up anything for me -- aside from photos albums (which my mom reluctantly took care of), I only really asked for my flutes and guitar. I think I'm convincing myself that it's not likely our house will burn; the evacuation seems more of a precautionary measure than because of a direct threat. But still. It's unnerving.

In other news, I finally finished development on I have a hunch it's going to be increasingly important to have a strong internet presence, branding if you will, now that potential employers are Googling your name, etc. It's a good idea to have a collection of links to things on the internet that are indeed related to you, as opposed to some other person with a similar name.
