Getting Ready for London 2012…
To state the seemingly very obvious: I love technology. In turn, I love being a technology lawyer. For me, technology became a passion when I was a young man. As a kid, my first love was all things and everything baseball. Even today, when I think about baseball, I think about the old greats: Brooks and Frank Robinson (as any Baltimore Orioles fan will comment, Brooks and Frank are not biological brothers), Paul Blair, Jim Palmer, Boog Powell, Johnny Bench…the list could and would go on and on, listing the stars of my youth. Simply put, as a kid, being a technology lawyer was no where in sight as a profession for me…I KNEW I was going to be the All-Star center fielder for the Baltimore Orioles. A funny thing happened when I got to high school: I discovered track & field and after one season of running track during my first year of high school, I never wanted to play baseball again (and I didn’t).
I received a scholarship to run track at the University of Pittsburgh where I had a successful career. From there, I ran for a few years with Westchester-Puma Track Club until retiring in 1988 (about the year some of my clients where born!)
So as I write this, just hours away from the start of Opening Ceremonies for the London 2012 Olympics, I am preparing to attend my fifth Summer Olympic Games (prior games were Atlanta, Sydney, Athens, and Beijing). I only attend track and field events and Closing Ceremonies (in Athens, I actually attended Opening Ceremonies as well).
With iPad in hand, I plan to blog during each event, and post as soon as possible. It bears repeating, I love technology.
