Beam Me Home, Scotty!

scotty_star_trek_house.jpgThis coming Sunday (the 24th of September) my wife (Carmen) will be conducting an open house in Redmond, Washington.

The house is cool enough all by itself — a spacious 4300 square feet on two levels, sitting on 5 wooded acres, but it is currently owned by the estate of James Doohan, Star Trek’s Scotty. There’s a modicum of discreet memorabilia inside, and no transporter or engine room, but I’m sure that the fact that this house was owned by a celebrity would certainly make it a conversation piece if you are so inclined.

Feel free to come by on Sunday between 1 and 4 PM:

22132 NE 114th Street Redmond, WA 98053

Or click here for a map (the arrow points to the street address; the house is to the north of the street, set back a considerable distance). You can also contact Carmen for a private showing.

Looks like I will be coming along for the ride this Sunday, so feel free to stop by if you want to talk about RSS, Web Services, or Second Life.
