It felt like hitting the jackpot, having my friends Chris DiBona and DJ Patil (@dpatil) dropping by to visit so close to one another.  Chris dropped by on a visit to go skiing and DJ was flying into town to give a talk which gave us the opportunity to catch up, visit, talk science, and national policy over a tasty meal.  DJ is another one of those people that you come into near proximity to at some point in your life, but then meet later, realizing that you have a past common connection.  I first met DJ at ORDcamp a few weeks ago where we talked about healthcare and current events informed by his perspective as Chief Data Scientist for the United States under President Barack Obama.  DJ is now back in the private sector building exciting things, and I can’t wait to see where his new efforts go, and for our next opportunity to catch up.
