Grand Meetup

I accepted on a job on Monday at Automattic, the makers of WordPress. They are a 100% distributed company and hold a company-wide meetup once a year, dubbed Grand Meetup. It just so happened to be that very Thursday in San Francisco and Santa Cruz, CA. It was an amazing time filled with hacking, drinking, eating, surfing, and meeting 200 new co-workers! Below are some sweet iPhone pics.


Jolene is probably my favorite country song of all time. I just found a great version of it by Miley Cyrus of all people. Listen before you judge 🙂

Australian creative agency The Monkeys created a minimalist series of posters. “Each print is one cocktail, screen-printed with proportionate colour blocks that represent the volume of each ingredient.” More on their site

Stop motion

I’ve always loved making and watching stop motion videos. I’ve been playing around with Vine for a bit now and finally getting the hang of it. I don’t like that you can’t edit once you have recorded, but I suppose it is a nice lesson in letting go.

Here’s one I made today while drinking my latte at J.Rene’s Coffee Roasters.

The social medias

Just for fun, I decided to look up how long I’ve been on facebook, twitter, and instagram.

Its a good thing you can’t tell how much time I’ve spent on each of those sites/apps.

Mammoth Lakes, CA

We flew standby last week and ended up in Vegas and renting a car and driving through Death Valley to Mammoth Lakes, CA, where we stayed for 5 days snowboarding, working and hanging out. Oh and we got to fly first class on the way back! Here’s the music video I made:

I didn’t know I how lame other color wheels were until I saw this amazing site from hailpixel:
