If I may be allowed a digression from the usual line of conversation in this space, it is my honor to announce that Senior Editor Meghan Fuller Hanna gave birth last night to the Red Sox' 2027 first round draft choice. John "Trip" Hanna III entered the world at 9:34 PM weighing 5 lbs and measuring 18 inches. (I'm assuming that's head to toe.)

Now it just so happens that yesterday was my birthday as well. Is the timing of Trip's birth a coincidence in light of the fact that, in addition to Trip, Meghan also delivered a partially finished Tech Trends article for our April issue that I'm now on the hook to complete? You decide.

Needless to say, you won't see Meghan at OFC/NFOEC in a couple of weeks. Sadly, you also won't see her byline here on the site or in the magazine for a few months. Our expectation is that she'll have time for us again in June -- assuming she's not too busy hitting grounders to #1 Son.

We'll have pics when they're available. In the meantime, please join me in congratulating Meghan on her new product introduction.
