Finally pulled the trigger for real today. My long running cell number is transferring to Google Voice as I type. It is not all perfection in the land of VOIP. That is for sure. I will almost certainly make important business...Read More
I am pretty sure I’m never going to be done organizing my apartment. Until I somehow frame this as productive exercise rather than some kind of opportunity cost, its always far down on the list of priorities. My brain does a...Read More
I wouldn’t really call this a “blog post” as much as a quick set of instructions for basic testing. I need to share them with somebody, so why not everybody? Goals If you’re testing an app, how do you get the developer the info...Read More

We’ve been banging away on client apps for the last few months, and during that time slowing pulling together a testing framework that should significantly help app developers building complex client/server apps in the field. As those client apps wound down, we tossed a little paint on the front, did some private-invite iterations, and bam! Touch Track!Read More
It’s been a week with the play framework. The summary? Play comes from France. The differences from frameworks I’ve used in the past are very significant, and frankly, it feels like I’m driving on the wrong side of the road. Some video comparisons are in order, from the most detailed European cultural guide we have.Read More
