Tech happenings in Baltimore for the next four weeks?
Later this week, I'll be taking a four-week parental leave to stay home with my wife and our new babies.
Yes, that's right. Plural.
Some time in the next 3-4 days, we expect to add twins to our family, a boy and a girl. We already have a 2.5 year old daughter, who can't wait to be a big sister, she insists.
So, I'm hoping the Baltimore/Maryland tech community can help me and The Sun stay in the loop on local tech happenings for the next four weeks or so. July and August are usually slow months in the news business, as people cycle through their vacations.
But we still have a daily newspaper and a website to deliver to y'all!
If you have news, just send tips to one of my editors, Liz Hacken, or to my email. Hit me on Twitter at @gussent. I can't promise I'll get back to you in any reasonable time frame, but please be assured I'll be reading my messages and trying to act on them as best I can.
I'll be sporadically blogging here whenever I find some time away from changing diapers and monitoring feedings. (Of course, any spare time I do manage to find I just may end up using for sleep!)
In the meantime, I'm interested in any helpful high- or low-tech technology that parents of twins have relied upon to help them manage and make their lives easier. What do you recommend? Is there a favorite iPhone/iPad app parents are using these days to help track their newborn's growth and patterns?
Is there, perchance, an app that can turn 3 hours of sleep into six hours of sleep?
