An experiment in… something.

As many of my long-term readers know, I’m often promising new content that never shows up. Partially it’s because the last 6 months have been absolutely nuts for me, and partially it’s because I have a problem with perfection. I know I have a problem with perfection and I fight it, but let’s face it, […]

Charity & Ruby down in Texas

Thought I’d steal a moment of your time to pimp a good education and a good cause: The Lone Star Ruby Conference might be sold out, but you still have a chance to snag a seat at the pre-conference charity workshop. For an almost criminally reasonable contribution of $50, you get to sit and listen […]

Going to SXSW?

Or thinking about it? Or thinking about thinking about it? Or thinking about thinking about thinking about checking out the MP3s and slide stacks from the presentations after the shindig is over? Then… vote for meeeee. Ooh, ooh, pick me! I’m pitching a panel—the prepared kind, not the “let’s get 5 people together and yak […]

Introducing Hyphenated People

Sort of. Again. But now we have a web site that looks like this: You should go there and click around, though, if you need a chuckle… catch my drift? (winknudge*) I can has training? Lolcats may be on the way out but quality training never is! Or so I tell myself. Speaking of quality […]

Coming back real soon now…

Several of you very fine folks have left me comments or emails wondering where I am, will I ever return, and is there a better place to net-stalk me than on my very own Slash7. Well, the answers are: my life has been nuts, I’m coming back soon, and yes, but I’m not telling, respectively. […]

Feedburner, why do you spurn me so?

Thanks to Patrick Reagan of Vignet Labs Viget Labs for pointing out that my Feedburner feed URL was not updating with the latest posts, mysteriously. It should be fixed now. I wondered why I was getting so few comments!

All we hear is radio silence, radio silence…

Poorly executed Queen reference aside, this post is just a little shout-out to say I’m still alive and kickin’. I don’t post about my personal crap on this blog but let’s just say there’s been an awful lot of it lately, and little has been going as planned. But I, I will survive. As long […]


In the hustle and bustle, somehow I forgot to mention: I’m at SXSW. Are you here too? Let’s say hi! Look for the girl with the yellow-blue-green hair (yeah, it’s a gradient) or hit me up on twitter and I’ll friend you and we can figure something out. Update So I have realized that the […]

Reminder: update your subscriptions

Just a friendly reminder, as I see more than 1,000 people still on the old feed URLs… please update your feeds! Either click here for the URL or otherwise update your feed reader with this URL: Thanks, guys! Oh, and if you’re wondering when the regularly scheduled Slash7 programming will return, well… book stuff […]

A silly little preview

Thank you for hanging in there during the lack of actual content. I know the bunch of small posts I’ve made lately are nothing useful or interesting (and I know I hate it when otherwise focused blogs go that way). It’s temporary, while my after-work hours are crazy book book book book did I mention […]
