I’ve worked with hundreds, if not thousands, of people over the years. I’ve liked most of them, been friends with a lot of them, and loved many of them. Cindy was definitely in the last category. Cindy Li and I became fast friends and co-conspirators while we both worked at AOL. We were on the… Continue reading My Friend Cindy Li
This is odd because I’ve never stayed for the Music portion of SxSW, but every year for the past five or six, I’ve downloaded the massive torrent of free songs from the artists playing SxSW and tried to listen and rate all of them. To give you some idea of the scale, the 2011 torrent… Continue reading My Annual SxSW Prep: Listening to Tons of Music!
The Third & The Seventh from Alex Roman on Vimeo. You really should go watch it in full screen just to bask in the detail in everything. I watched very closely and couldn’t find any of the normal cheats you find in CG that break the illusion. Yes, there are things towards the end that… Continue reading Brad Graham, The Third and the Seventh
A couple links for you to click if you’re into that kind of thing: My SxSW Panel submission – Called From Doer to Manager, I hope to talk about making the transition from individual contributor to manager and the steps in between. I don’t know who’s going to be on the panel yet, but the… Continue reading SxSW and the Pledge Drive
My pal David Thomas made a great video of drunk domain registering stories. You may see a familiar face near the end.
Now, you can all hear the madness of our panel, even if you can’t see it. It’s too bad you can’t, because you’re missing me beaning unsuspecting audience members with saltwater taffy, the confetti cannon and the awful sight of me getting my swerve on (I hope I used that correctly).\ I know I haven’t… Continue reading How to Stay Inspired After SxSW Podcast Is Up!
In case you want to follow along at home, here’s what I’m planning on doing. It’s all subject to change, but at least I have a plan. Oh, and this made me laugh so hard, I almost evacuated my bowels.
Christopher came up with a great idea. Since four of us who wrote Adapting to Web Standards will be at SxSW, he’s doing a little giveaway. Get all four of our autographs and you could win a copy of our excellent book (really, it’s good).\ In other news, we launched our first public web app… Continue reading Find Me At SxSW!
Every year, SxSW posts a ton of free mp3’s from the artists that showcase at the music festival. And every year since 2004, I’ve downloaded all of them. This year, though, instead of just letting them take up space in iTunes, I’m going to try something. Between now and whenever I get through them, I’m… Continue reading SxSW 2009 Music: Best of the A’s
I’m speaking at a conference this week in London, and am speaking at SxSW again this year, which means I’ve had to write two conference bios in short succession. I hate writing conference bios, mostly because I feel like a complete ass writing about myself in the third person. But, I’m rather proud of these… Continue reading Writing Conference Bios
