The Android Revolution is exploding! 12 Phones strong and growing in number - just like the PC revolution of the 1980's or the Linux revolution of the 1990's! This is good - very very good indeed.

Open source has always been a better choice for a number of reasons but the most important one, of course, is that it allows people - empowering individuals - to apply their own talents towards improving the system for everyone else.

Of course, mine is not an unbiased opinion, since I am a co-author of a book on the Android powered cell phone - but be that as it may, the system is growing in popularity and that is making me a very happy man. Viva 'la Android!

Fort Collins, Colorado

Here is the view from my hotel window. It's a beautiful and cool day in Fort Collins, and the HHC 2009 conference begins tomorrow at the Hewlett-Packard facilities. My mother and I made the trip okay and the only difficult part of the trip was from the Denver bus station to Fort Collins (about 53 miles) since the bus was packed with people. (Full occupancy.) The hotel (Cambria Suites) is great and the food that they served us for dinner last night and breakfast this morning was first-class indeed!

I look forward to a bit of shopping today, since I will need nicer clothes for the conference. Directly across from the hotel is a shopping mall and I should be able to find something to wear. I'm also going to eat lunch at the food court there - if they have one.
