    David Chappell to speak at 2009 ESRI Developer Summit

    I think we have an outstanding keynote speaker for this year’s Developer Summit.  David Chappell is an excellent presenter and very knowledge on trends and patterns in technology. 

    My first knowledge of Chappell was in the late 90s via his popular “Understanding ActiveX and OLE” book.

    I’m always on the lookout for Saturday events as I don’t race on Sunday due to family and personal beliefs.  So please let me know if you know of any triathlons or running events in your area not on Sunday.  I’m especially looking for events in California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah.

    The Fittest and Fattest Cities in America 2009 - Men's Fitness

    The new poll is out and Salt Lake City in the great state of Utah is America’s fittest city. I really enjoyed my recent vacation to Salt Lake City and Park City, UT.  I can see how it’s a fit city.  I was in October and had some great runs and hikes enjoying the fall colors in the mountains.

    But I was surprised to hear that Miami, FL was the Fattest city in America. Check out the complete top 25 here
