If you had visited this site last week, you would’ve found the site basically unchanged since mid-2011, a blog frozen in time as if awaiting a next post that never comes.
Not any more. I took time over the weekend to bring back alive the blog which was dead, with new goals. Self hosting a personal website is just hard, still. But, I am now commited to write and share more of what I learn, as I learn. You'll see a complete overhaul of this website soon.
Working on the web is hard and challenging. Competing priorities from clients, managing the expectations of people who don't understand technology, and the ever expanding and evolving web-stack all contribute to it's challenges. Most days I'll leave with more to do that I got done, and yet I love it. This crazy environment attracts really smart people. I have one of the most talented teams I know of and they're all really brilliant at what they do. I feel it has been a privilege to work everyday with such bright people.
