Saturday, February 3rd, 2007

I’ve been invited to speak at the next meeting of the CocoaHeads (Silicon Valley group) meeting next week. I’m honored Over the years, I’ve recevied tons of developer help from others, mostly from the cocoadev mailing list, but occasionally by bugging folks on iChat as well.

Today, I was interviewed on the “Web 2.0 Explorer” blog created by Alan Graham on Ziff-Davis. I get to write a guest blog or two this week as well. Who’s feeling important?

Moving at the Speed of Creativity

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

It’s always a blast to speak with educators about MemoryMiner. I’ve said it countless times, but it bears repeating: I love teachers, and think that as a society we can’t do enough to support them. I feel this all the more now that I think about my (almost) 3 year old son, and the challenges […]

MemoryMiner on TWiT

Monday, January 15th, 2007

Still catching up with the posts I should have made during the week, but better late than never. On Thursday, Merlin Mann (of That Phone Guy fame) and crew came by our booth to film a segment on MemoryMiner for the very amusing MacBreak program on TWiT (This Week in Tech). I’d heard of Merlin […]

We Made It!

Wednesday, January 10th, 2007

For those of you who read the last post, in keeping with our Blues Brothers theme, I can happily say we made it to the County Assessors office in a nick of time. Macworld has been a whirlwind, just like last year. People who have seen the MemoryMiner Remote Annotation Web Service have been floored. […]

The Blues Brothers Movie

Saturday, January 6th, 2007

When I was in high school, a absolute favorite movie was The Blues Brothers (Watch the trailler from IMDB). The last few days of intense preparation for Macworld has felt like one big race against time, which is the essential plot line for the movie. For those of you who have seen this film, I […]

Happy New Year! I’m heads down with Punk Kid & The Southern Gentleman getting ready for Macworld. Once again, we’ll have a sprawling 2 meter pod in the Digital Media Special Interest Pavilion in the North Hall. Come see us. We’ll be showing something quite groundbreaking.
