And as for that forever-awaited follow-up to Voodoo, ?uestlove says it's "97% done" and that it's "the black version of [The Beach Boys'] Smile." via www.pitchfork.com So it's going to be the most overrated black album of all time? Bummer. Continue »

The following is an email I wrote in response to a job offer from a company that, after receiving my resume and cover letter, asked me to complete a three-hour (timed) edit test. After they received my edit test, I... Continue »

Did you get a visit from the Google Feature Fairy yesterday? I did, and some lovely new colors appeared in the top navigation bar. I saw some changes on the Grand Ol’ Search Engine page, too. Then, a curious little... Continue »

Twitter can do whatever it wants, change whatever technical standard it uses and force whatever discipline it wants on its ecosystem. Right now, Twitter has a product that everyone wants to use — in fact, I would argue that for five years the company has given far more than it... Continue »

This Easter, instead of going to church or hunting for eggs or waiting until midnight to go to Walgreens and buy Easter candy at half price, I chose to throw on a bunny costume and go snowboarding. If you follow... Continue »

OK, so I have some news to share with you. Today, April 22nd, is my last day at SAY Media. Including 2 years at SAKK and 4 years at Six Apart headquarters in 548 4th street, this has been an incredible venture and terrific experience for me to work with all of smart people on numerous exciting projects, but I figured it's time to move on. I should have a lot to write, but instead i'll dump some memorable pictures :) Man, that's a lot of memories. I'll send everyone a big hug and thank you for making my days at Six Apart/SAY so much fun! P.S. I'll take a quick vacation next week, and will start a new gig... Continue »

There's been a bunch of stories lately about Ev Williams, co-founder of Blogger and Twitter upon the occasion of him leaving Twitter to do his own thing. Some are outright calling him an asshole. This Business Insider story of Noah... Continue »

Today has been a flurry of activity, thanks mostly to TechCrunch's review of the book. To some this may seem a lay-up for a positive review, but Michael Arrington was writing it. Nothing is a lay-up with Mike, and in... Continue »

My daughter (Penelope) is learning her letters. One of our favorite activities is to use the built-in say command in the OS X terminal: she types in a word, presses [return], and the computer speaks. To make this easier, I... Continue »

I started this post on 5/28/2009. Judging from my notes, I had intended to make this a very long entry. It's unfinished and mostly unedited. I just have to let it go now, despite its rough edges. Perez later published... Continue »

Colatura di Alici: This is the essence of anchovy - and very likely what the Romans thought of as garum. Its closest relative is Asian fish sauce, but Colatura di Alici is richer, more elegant (and more expensive). Still, it’s a powerful elixir, and a single bottle will very likely last a year in most people’s refrigerators. What do you... Continue »

An actual conversation with my daughter today. For context, she's been obsessed with people's birthdays for the past week. Note: We have this conversation every day it seems. Also note: Sarah is Pen's aunt and Abe is Sarah's son --... Continue »

As the era of Six Apart comes to a close, and I look back on my almost five years here, there is a group that I feel deserves just as much recognition as the rest of us... plus some treats and belly rubs. I'm talking, of course, about the Six Apart Dogs. Dogs have been a huge part of the culture around here for as long as I've been on board. Like them or not, they've always been present. Most were well-behaved, but some would get their wild on from time to time, and that was ok. Sometimes we'd encourage... Continue »

I hate when the baseball season is over. As a player it is bittersweet. The season ends, you say goodbye to friends, the town, playing every day and a routine that takes weeks to transition away from. As a fan,... Continue »

One of my most vivid childhood memories is being lucky enough to go down on the field for batting practice at Wrigley before an afternoon Cubs / Reds game. Everything was larger than life -- the field, the stadium, the... Continue »
