We went to our hangout, the Brentwood Tavern outdoor patio and who should walk in but Vicente from Valencia. I thought I was hallucinating but Vicente has a way of just showing up in my life -- like the time he told me about Grounded Theory and set my dissertation in a natural and smooth direction. Vicente is a Shakespeare scholar, playwrite, and professor at the University of Valencia who devoted many hours working on our cyberopera and got the opera nominated for the Global Bangemann Challenge. As a result of being in the Challenge finals we went to Stockholm and saw the king who greeted us in the Nobel Hall and feasted us in the Golden Hall. Vicente is amazing as you can see.
