Super Happy Reminder Plus Checkin

The party turns on tonight at 7pm and last until 7am. We have presenters this time, including Mr. Alex Russell who will be kicking Javascript ass and taking names. I think this whole thing has a bit of an Ajax theme, so bring your favorite browser 😉 Speaking of browsers, did you know I’m making […]

Someday They’ll Let Me Sleep

Still sorting out the finances for Bar Camp, big post on that coming up soon. But until then, you can start planning for the next event: Burning Geek BBQ happening at The Langpad (where Chris and I live) this Sunday (the 28th), 3pm+. You bring the food, the booze and the skillz, we provide the […]

You Say The Damndest Things Right When You Wake Up

Tantek says I need press coaching, I think I need sleep. Got interviewed by Daniel Terdiman for CNET a couple days ago and managed to drop a couple answers that might need a little clarifying. In any case, Smith said he has no problem with Foo Camp’s exclusivity. This is true, I don’t think FOO […]

In Which BAR Camp Spirals Wildly Out Of Control

We’re getting tons of press here, the list of people talking about us is growing rapidly, and I have the feeling it is only a matter of time before my little servers get BoingBoing’d, Slashdotted or Ito’d into oblivion. Posting from BAR Camp HQ (aka SocialText) right now, and I have to say, the place […]

The Matt Effect

I feel quite bad because I forgot to mention THE matt mullenweg when talking about BAR Camp. But Matt is quite contributing. Go Matt, go –drunk–! Check out my Flickr feed if you want to understand this. Update Evidence

Don’t Ask Me About My Business Model

Every time I talk to new people about any company I am working for, usually at a conference but living in the bay area it happens often enough on the street, too, the conversation unfailingly reaches the point where the person asks, “So, what’s your business model?” Motherfucking damnit. Yes, it is a company, it […]

BAR Camp

Updated 2005-08-16 A location has been chosen! Currently sitting at the super secret planning location with Chris, Ryan and Tantek trying to sort out the plans for BAR Camp. We’re running around the web grabbing names and location suggestions — we even posted on craigslist — so that this event can actually take off. If […]

Facebook For The Rest Of Us

Today I discovered a horrible, horrible thing. Wow, yeah, wrong site to put into my hands. As close as I can tell, the premise is: dating site + tags + clever gimmicks to get participation out of you = Dating 2.0. Yes, I want to conquer it, this is pretty much what I always […]

House: Warmed.

Chris and I — with some considerable prep help — threw a Housewarming / Memorial Day Barbecue at our new place here in [SOMA]. It was a great time, many thanks to everybody who was able to make it and my apologies to anybody who left that I was unable to say goodbye to whilst […]
