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. I feel that I need that technological “reboot” more than ever but the big question is should I make the investment? Thinking out loud, it is an investment in myself… Now you got me thinking…  [...]

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 [...]

At Gnomedex 7.0

Friday, August 10th, 2007

I’m at Gnomedex 7.0 in Seattle this weekend. Normally I have live-blogged the events, but this year I have decided to just enjoy the events and take some notes and pictures. I am updating (occasionally) through my Twitter feed and will definitely be updating the site with a bunch of my thoughts once things start [...]

Living Out Of Boxes One Week Later

Friday, August 3rd, 2007

Wow, do we have a lot of stuff… We technically “moved” 8 days ago and we’re still unpacking boxes and unloading a storage locker that has stuff in it like our coffee table, my stereo components and all of our booze (I know!)… More info on the new house/neighborhood, all of the personal projects I’ve [...]

Consider Me Famous

Saturday, October 28th, 2006

I have officially made it. My picture is in a post on Steve Rubel’s Micro Persusasion site today (along with Matt and JR… oh, yeah, there’s Matt Mullenweg and the one of the “crazy uncles” in front of us ~ wait, aren’t “links dead”?) :) The post is about Nielsen banning blogging at a conference [...]

BarCamp Chicago This Weekend

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

I’ve been feeling really good about the tech-scene going on around Chicago (yeah, that’s really nerdy to say out loud). Coming off of “a high” from Gnomedex, it’s nice to see this attitude carrying on locally… – The local crew has a couple of tricks up their sleeves which will be announced soon – TechCocktail [...]

Gnomedex Day 2 – First Half

Saturday, July 1st, 2006

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. Dave Winer ( – Frightened by John Edwards on the front of the Seattle PI – Desktop Publishing -> Web – “Quitting blogging to do something new” Philip “Pud” Kaplan [...]

I’ve changed my mind – no live blogging

Friday, June 30th, 2006

I want to get the most of these session/conversations, so while I’m taking notes, etc., I’m not going to be liveblogging.  Of course this can change at any point.  Don’t worry, there’ll be updates…  I’m just trying to get into my Gnomedex groove.

Let’s get out of here already!

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

Well, I’m at Gate 20 at Midway waiting for the plane to come in.  I’m flying Southwest (can’t argue, it was a free flight) and although I “checked in” yesterday through their website, I still got a “B” boarding card.  Amazing that that many people are checking in through the website.  That’s a good thing, [...]
