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.
At the first fundraiser auction I ever go to, one for FACES Foundation last October, I end up with a week’s vacation at condo in Maui. I remember the setup clearly: a strong Pisco Sour to kick off the evening, red wine flowing throughout dinner,… Continue reading →
Down to the beautiful island of Maui with Leah, Spittle and Leah for a week of sun, swimming, hiking, reading, playing Mexican Train, etc. etc. Consider this my away message until April 2nd, although I will be checking my personal email periodically.
Never miss an opportunity for adventure is my motto. When DJ posted on Facebook that he was headed to Utah for a conference and wanted to ski, I immediately jumped on it. We ended up skiing Brighton for a few days with his friends David… Continue reading →

Travel this month: VIP meetup in Las Vegas starting today, New Zealand for Webstock at the end of next week, and then a combo Utah for skiing and Kentucky for NICAR at the end of the month. Wish me luck. And if you happen to be in any of those locations, hit me up.

The Miles and Daniel ski trip is now strong into its third year. This time we were joined at Squaw by Albert and lots of Miles’ roommates and friends. Many thanks to Natalie for coordinating the lodging. Saturday: 20.5k feet of vertical in 20 runs. Post-ski,… Continue reading →
This morning: Ran along the Victoria waterfront, drank hot tea in the rain on the walk back, and ate a delicious breakfast of waffles and bacon with Leah and her grandparents. It’s nice to slow things down every once in a while.
Oh, and we’re thinking about taking a floatplane back to Seattle on Tuesday. Fingers-crossed that it works out.
But the State Department didn’t return my birth certificate. Hmm…
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.
It sounds like the WordPress users at ONA might be getting brunch together on Sunday morning. Let me know if you’d like to join.
