Woke up at 4 am. Worked on my presentation for a few hours. Went to Stafford Hills for a 45 minute swim and quick hot tub. Got feedback on my presentation from Joe. Took a call on prospective consulting project. Ate lunch — leftovers from an amazing Indian meal Leah made last night. Kissed my […]
A bit of travel coming up over the next 11 days: Today I’m flying to NYC to meet a few new members of the Fusion team in person. Tomorrow we have a hack day on the theme of personalization. Friday evening I’m taking the train to Philly for Saturday’s BCNI. I fly back to Portland […]
Today was a very special occasion — Ava’s first birthday. To celebrate, we: ate homemade crepes with banana and nutella for breakfast, took a walk to the Bloemenmarkt, dozed peacefully with a two hour nap, played in ball pit and slide at TunFun, and had delicious takeaway Vietnamese from The Taste of Vietnam for dinner.
The flight over wasn’t awful. I can’t think of any highlights from flying nine hours with an almost one year old, but we survived and we’re here. We had a failed plan (proposed by me) where I would sleep 3-4 hours on Unisom, then take over and Leah would sleep 3-4 hours. I took my pill, […]
Braving a nine hour flight and eight timezones to spend spring break 2015 in Amsterdam. Now that Ava is just about one, we can’t wait to see what it’s like to explore a European city with her. Her sense of curiosity encourages us to see the world in a new light.
Enroute to Miami today for Fusion’s first tech team meetup. Looking forward to a week of strategeryizing, meeting a bunch of people for the first time, and warm weather on the beach.
Post-work, pre-dinner bike ride around the airstrip. Memo to self: always put the cover on the front. Because dirt and baby.
Braved the mosquitos for a 7 mile hike to Benham Falls. It turned out to be markedly easier than 11 months ago when Leah was pregnant. A last minute plane ticket switch to come to Redmond was totally worth it.
Off to Philly today for SRCCON, a gathering of some of the nerds who make the technology behind the news. I am so excited! For years, CMSes, publishing workflows, and the unsexy but very mission critical technologies have been my passion. Yet most of the conferences, online discussion, etc. have skirted around the topic, in […]
We had our 6 oz toothpaste container taken from us at KEF just now — Leah mistakenly put it in the bin. When I asked why it was taken, the security agent explained there was some greater than 4 oz rule, even when it was obvious there was less than 4 oz of cream in […]
