“one of these days…Pow! Right to the MOON!”

Props to the moon mission — Happy Anniversary; 40 years and we haven’t figured out how to exploit it yet. I well remember sitting in front of the (black and white) TV, amazed at the feat. How far we have come in so many ways, yet a few things have yet to be surpassed. However, 1969 was not a good year for espresso, except price. If you happened to find a coffee shop that served any espresso, it would be unrecognizable by our present standards. I did find a menu that says a lot:

Coffee: $.15
Espresso: $.25
Cappuccino: $.35

On current events, I have (inadvertently) delayed posting an upcoming conference in Pittsburgh that has me personally excited: Netroots Nation 2009, August 13-16. As a daily dailykos.com addict (and sometime poster), it is with pleasure that I personally welcome all attendees to Pittsburgh. For a little insight to the conference:

“Netroots Nation amplifies progressive voices by providing an online and in-person campus for exchanging ideas and learning how to be more effective in using technology to influence the public debate. Through our annual convention and a series of regional salons held throughout the year, we strengthen our community, inspire action and serve as an incubator for ideas that challenge the status quo and ultimately affect change in the public sphere.”

Simpatico is hoping to meet and greet many of the folks visiting the city, and look forward to the invasion of progressive, political activists working to improve America.

  1. We are thrilled to have you as both a local business and a political junkie (ETinKC here) – and are looking forward to being in Pittsburgh but for the convention and to enjoy the city itself.

  2. if i had a time machine i’d go get me some 25 cent espresso. of course, after all the money i put into making the time machine, it’d probably wind up being the same price or more in expenses. too bad
