About this site's lack of design: Yes, it's supposed to look this way — I'm using a sandbox theme for WordPress (see it on GitHub).

Podcasting with Bryan

Saturday, April 22nd, 2006

Hot on the heels of my trip to San Francisco, I had the chance to spend nearly an hour as a guest on Bryan Veloso’s “Live from the 101” podcast Wednesday night (although, come on Bryan, isn’t it time to change the name? j/k…) We talked about trying to record it in person while I was in California, but it didn’t work out (this trip), so my apologies to all Bryan’s listeners who were miffed at having to wait a few extra days for this episode :)

Bryan is a talented designer (one who now owns a shiny new MacBook Pro), but he knows how to shoot the shit, which is exactly what we did for 55 minutes. Curious to find out what two designers can talk about for that long?

Check out the ‘cast.



Heading to San Francisco

Thursday, April 13th, 2006

No, I’m not moving there (yet, though there’s always the chance), but I will be visiting the City by the Bay this weekend, along with a quick side trip to Cupertino and 1 Infinite Loop (if I can make it to some of the other companies in the surrounding area that will be a bonus).

I’m looking forward to spending time with some friends and making new ones, and in general getting a taste for the city. I have a lot of friends in the world of a cappella who live on the west coast, and now a growing list of friends and collegues, so the temptation to move is definitely growing.

Expect new pics on Flickr in the very near future…

Update: The photos are now online (just a straight dump from the camera).
