Italian Travel Fun

Travel to Italy should really be about food, friends and Fabriano on the left (making paper since 1264 AD). But it was all about flying.
I don't mean just the angst of Alitalia (the security announcements were muffled, the remote for the entertainment system on the Airbus craft was a challenge. I watched movies: Star Trek (playing the trick of projecting back in time with the characters), a documentary about Apollo flights (a great quote: "a small step for Neil, but a giant step for ..."), and when I returned, I did what I do every week, grab the New Yorker, flip to the end and read movie reviews, this time about "Up in the air".

ps: I referred to Facebook as the Masters of New Universe in a conversation.

ps: What will be a iPhone/Android application that many researchers will download and use that will network them socially for their research (CS, Sciences, Engg, etc)?
