Tod K. Maffin, boffin!

Before Tod Maffin became a technomedia guru he was my successor as the B.C. Bureau Chief of Canadian University Press.

"Bureau Chief" was a relative term, of course. The bureau had one person.

I tried to become the National Bureau Chief, in charge of CUP's news service, but was thrashed in the election to that post. It was all for the best though. Had I moved to Ottawa, I would never have met my friend Rajiv and started going to his church. The church remains a very cool place to go.
