Hey boss:

Hoping that I can take next week off for a much-needed blogging vacation. Since I brought this blog to, exactly four years ago, I've written more than 1,000 posts. (With very few breaks.) I'm heading to Europe for some R&R... but also can't resist visiting a few spots that could supply material for future blog posts.

I should also let you know that the team at's The Hive, under Michael Morisy, have been ramping up their coverage of the local innovation scene. You can follow them on Twitter: @HiveBoston.

I'll see you back here in the office soon... but not too soon. :)
