This Blog No Longer Updated

Please find my current internet postings here: tl;dr MEMORANDUM: I have used the Blogger webware to publish this personal blog on nickgray.net for over seven (7) years. It started as an easy way to publish camera phone photos from my Danger Sidekick. I think some of my best posts were from the summer of 2003 when I worked in Bangkok. A quick browse from the archives turns up such random things as my recount of Chinese Cop on Window Ledge Shoots Kidnapper in Head and even a congratulations to President Hugo Chavez (who I do not currently support).
I used this blog to think out loud - sometimes with very long, detailed posts that make no sense to me now. These days I publish a lot more bite-sized bits to Tumblr, Twitter, and Flickr.

Upcoming Travel to Rome and Milan

I will be in Italy from February 16th to February 21st, 2010. I plan to visit Rome, Milan, and a few cities in between. This is my third or fourth time visiting Milan but only my second visit to Rome. Most importantly, I plan to drive over 1600 km (1000 miles) in the country. This should be a challenge. I can't wait.

Upcoming Travel to Johannesburg, South Africa

I will be working in Johannesburg from January 21st to February 1st. This is my second trip to South Africa and I am very excited.

One night down there - I am not sure when - I will have a party in Johannesburg. Probably near the Melville neighborhood, but ideally in Soweto. Am I naive and crazy? Yes. Will it be fun? Definitely.

Drop me an email or Facebook if you know anyone that I can invite.

News Updates from September 2009

I wanted to share two cool news items that happened to me in September:


Meet Nick Gray, Thrower of ‘Culturally Significant’ Williamsburg Parties

Or some people just meet Nick Gray, who has styled himself as a sort of Lois Weisberg for the Tumblr age. Every month or so, Gray, who is 27 and lives in Williamsburg, has a party for a whole bunch of young people who are largely strangers. Some he's met on Facebook or through Tumblr. Some he meets at McCarren Park or Whole Foods or bowling; he hands them his card, which has his e-mail address on it, and adds them to his "Friends Newsletter," which gets sent out once a month and updates everyone on what his friends are doing... continued

 

Aviation International News

Flight Display Systems Rated #1 in the Aviation International News 2009 Product Support Survey

Flight Display Systems' meteoric rise to the top of the AIN rankings is an impressive feat for the privately held company, founded earlier this decade with a single moving-map product. The company finished in fourth place overall in 2008, but that debut was good enough to make it the top vote getter among cabin electronics manufacturers. Since then the company, led by founder David Gray and fielding a stable of more than 50 FAA-approved cabin products, has been relentless in its efforts to ensure customer needs are being met and that its suppliers deliver top-notch components... continued

Freelance Whales at my house party (Tea Party)

I had a really great party at my apartment on Thursday, June 11th 2009. Our musical guests, the Brooklyn band The Freelance Whales (MySpace), are largely responsible for the success of the evening. Their fun music had everyone in the audience begging for more. Here is some of the new media that my guests shared from the night.

Luke Crawford shot this video, which also appeared on his blog:

Justin Shaffer captured a lot of beautiful photographs, including these:

Courtney Lewis recorded this fantastic acoustic version of the Freelance Whales song Starrring, which you can click through to hear:

Many more of my friends took camera phone pictures of the band and posted them to their Tumblr accounts - Mattan, Chet (1), Chet (2), Janelle, Jonathan, and Kristen.

Janelle, Courtney, Soraya, Zach, and Chet all chimed in with positive feedback on Twitter:

Hopefully this band is going to blow up just like Passion Pit. Check them out on MySpace or on Facebook.
