A couple weeks ago I spent a week at my parents house in California. First day there we hiked to Cathedral Lakes and back which I hadn’t done since I was a little kid. Great 8 mile hike up through a forest and ending in a gorgeous alpine lake.
I was in Amsterdam with my team at Automattic from July 13th through the 20th. We had a great time, ate well, saw quite a bit of the city, and finished some fun projects.
Spent the first half of yesterday hiking Mount Defiance with Leah, Luke, and Luke’s sister who’s in town for the week. It was a decent day of weather in Portland but the mountain ended up surrounded by clouds and mist. Still a great hike but we missed out on what should have been great views […]
Last week I spent Monday through Thursday at a friend’s beach house in Waldport, Oregon. It was a half work week, half vacation week. Snapped a few photos, went on a nice little hike, and got lots of reading in. Good way to recharge the batteries.
This morning at WordCamp San Diego I gave a talk titled “Using WordPress as your publishing hub. It went well and lots of people had great questions. If anyone has followup questions I’m happy to answer them in the comments. The slides are included below. The blurb I sent in for the talk was: WordPress as […]
On Monday I got back from a week-long meetup on Tybee Island, GA. I posted some photos while there but this is the rest of what was in the collection. The horse mask was a surprise left for my co-worker, Hanni. You can get your own on Amazon. Most of the photos are from Bonaventure […]
Got out for a great hike this morning with Daniel and Leah. Hiked about 8 miles in the gorge up to Devil’s Rest. We lucked out with weather, it only started to rain when we were within shouting distance of the car.
Photos from last month’s Automattic meetup in Budapest. We were there for a week and had an absolute blast. It’d be fun to go back when the weather isn’t so dreary.
I spent my last day in Marseille seeing Notre-Dame de la Garde which sits on the top of the highest hill around and had some terrific views of the city. To get up there, my brother and I walked up some pretty steep, San Francisco-like streets. The tower of Notre-Dame de la Garde is capped […]
Yesterday the plan was to see a few museums and then head out to Olympique de Marseille to watch the match against Brest. For some reason the two museums I wanted to catch weren’t open despite their hours clearly stating that they were. Instead I walked around and snapped some photos of the graffiti stores put […]
