Max 18

Tuesday 9 March 2010This is over 13 years old. Be careful.

Today is my son Max’s 18th birthday. Although he is not my oldest, in many ways he is my eldest. It’s been a pleasure watching and helping him grow into a man, and it will be difficult to let him go off to college in the fall.

He’s made various appearances in this blog over the years, making a micro Lego AT-AT and social disturbances at 10, a Flash movie at 11, scientific observations and programming first steps at 13, innovative cinema at 14, a stop-motion movie for French class and an OS X application at 16.

I’m very proud of Max and everything he’s done, and I’m looking forward to what’s next.

Happy Birthday, Max!


Happy Birthday, Max! Also, lest we forget, congratulations and thanks to Mom and Dad for making this day possible. ;)
Happy birthday!

Some pretty cool projects there. I really liked the silliputtimation.
Happy Birthday & welcome to The Big Room, Max!! Knowing Ned, I'd bet you are well prepared.

I would encourage Max to read this rather tritely titled piece I wrote on internships:

Of all the other amazing opportunities unique to college life, the internship opportunities stand out. It is the one time you will get a chance to effectively beta test companies you might like to join....
You are a GREAT father for all of your sons!
Belated happy birthday to Max, and congratulations to you and your wife ;)
