I’m going to be at WordCamp Chicago this weekend… If you see me, say hi! :)

Looking for a SharePoint / .NET Job In Chicago?

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

If you live in the Chicago area (or are thinking about moving here), have ninja-like skills when it comes to Microsoft .NET (expecially with SharePoint 2003 and 2007) and would like to work for a great company, I’d LOVE to talk to you. Send me an email and let’s talk. Please feel free to pass [...]

12 Hours on Rails (I could easily have done 24)

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

I survived. It was a long day on paper, but it felt like it was about 15 minutes. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of spending 12 hours in a hotel conference room learning all about Ruby and Rails at the Softies on Rails Workshop. I know you’re immediately saying to yourself, “who would send you [...]

Am I a Rock Critic in Training?

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007

Listening to the last episode of Sound Opinions for 2006 (via their podcast), both Dero and Kot’s 2006 “End of the Year” Mix Tapes look eerily similar to the Marusin Compilation 2006. I don’t know what that says about my music tastes. I’m somewhat annoyed. :) They do say that all rock critics are failed [...]

TECH cocktail 3 Announced

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006

TECH cocktail 3 has been announced! The festivities go down on January 25, 2007 at Amira (in the NBC Tower). I’m really looking forward to this event as I haven’t been disappointed yet. I’m not familiar with Amira, but hopefully it’s a little larger (space-wise) to accommodate the throngs of cocktailer’s that have been showing [...]

Back From TechCocktail2

Thursday, October 12th, 2006

TechCocktail 2 was tonight at The Gramercy in Chicago and was another good time. I think I liked #1 better just for the fact that it was in a more-open space and wasn’t as jam packed. Boy, was it jam packed. Being that crowded is a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing [...]

TechCocktail 2 is this Thursday

Sunday, October 8th, 2006

It kind of snuck up on me, but TechCocktail 2 (Electric Boogaloo) is this coming Thursday (October 12th, 2006) at The Gramercy in Chicago… I am planning on being there and am looking forward to this event. I had a great time at #1 and am hoping that it has the same energy/vibe. If you’re [...]

I may have found a new passion in life…

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2006

You know I have a love for burritos, but everything changes over time. I have officially started my quest for the perfect (Mexican-style) taco. I’m talking a straight-up steak taco with cilantro, onions and maybe a lime wedge or two. There will be no lettuce. There will be no cheese. There will be no asking [...]

Garry Meier is Live on the Steve Dahl Show right now

Friday, August 18th, 2006

Anyone that has listened to Steve Dahl in the past and is reading this “live” (~3:24pm CST on Friday August 18, 2006) might want to either flip on 105.9 FM (that is if you’re in the Chicago area) or hit the live stream on dahl.com… Steve’s old co-host, Garry Meier, is live on the air [...]

Not so sure about BarCamp Chicago

Saturday, July 15th, 2006

So I went to BarCamp Chicago today and don’t know how I feel walking away from it. While I was only able to attend for a couple of hours this afternoon, I can’t say I’m walking away with much. There definitely was a share of very smart people there, but it seemed to be missing [...]
