I’m writing this post from the Newark Airport on my way to Charlottesville, VA, for a photography festival I’m covering for work.

My day looks something like this: R train -> D train -> A train -> NJ Transit Trenton Local -> AirTrain -> United plane to Dulles -> United plane to Charlottesville -> Avis rental car -> Red Roof Inn. Its a whole series of complicated systems meshed together. Travel is pretty amazing when the trains and planes run on time and everything works. So far it’s gotten me to New Jersey.

This is the first time I’ve traveled with my brand new MacBook (the company agreed to swap me from a desktop to a laptop). I really like this computer. It’s a substantial upgrade to my old personal laptop, which is a 2001 iBook (the first one Apple sold in white).
