Do I do Gnomedex this year?

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

I’m feeling the need to be at Gnomedex again this year. I missed last year and am kicking myself since.

Thinking About Gnomedex 2007

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

It’s been about three weeks now since Gnomedex 2007 and I still haven’t finished off a post that I had started back then. I’ve been thinking alot about this year’s event and wanted to share some of my thoughts after I digested things for a while. I don’t really have much to say about this [...]

Here’s a short video of me on drums (Matt is playing guitar). First time drumming… yeah man. I’m having some problems embedding this, so here’s a link [...]

Back From Gnomedex and Decompressing

Sunday, July 2nd, 2006

I’m back home and am letting it all soak in… I’ve had tech/geek overload for the last couple of days and here I am at home sitting on a computer!  I spent the whole flight back to Chicago writing down notes and thinking through some of the ideas that have sparked inside of my head [...]

I’ve been taking notes offline and figured I would share them with you. I’ll try and explain these a little better at some later point.
