On Alaska 388 for a quick trip to San Francisco to meet Tom and Joe for the first time. Excited for what’s ahead, both the future and the conversations we get to have for the next 24 hours. With any luck, I’ll be back in Portland tomorrow by 7 pm for the PDXWP developer meetup.

Flying Alaska 244 down to San Francisco for ONA tomorrow through Saturday. Cab to plane in twenty minutes, picked up a dirty chai, and first class bump to boot. I have perfected the art of flying. Knock on wood.

Flew down to San Francisco this morning in preparation for WordCamp San Francisco. I’m excited and nervous; my Saturday afternoon talk will likely be in front of the largest audience I’ve ever seen. That is, unless everyone ends up in the other track.
Mostly though, I’m looking forward to hanging out with the community. And, if it’s possible, find people using Edit Flow who’d like to get involved with an upcoming release!
Four years ago: Here’s the problem: I, like many people I know, drive too many places all alone in my car. One person in a three ton metal vehicle that could easily transport five. To move all of that mass around, with such unused, waste… Continue reading →
Today, I’m down at Google in Mountain View at Techraking, a gathering of technologists and investigative journalists. It’s been super inspiring because of the fresh to me perspectives — I’d love to help Portland media outlets with projects like those I’ve heard about. At lunch,… Continue reading →
A slightly delayed Alaska 2634 from San Francisco to Portland, few hours in Portland for a cousin’s graduation party, and then US Airways 95 down to Phoenix to see Michelle and her family for the week.
