Still alive

2014 Jan 27th

 

Just been super busy lately. Flew to Austin for an on-site with my compatriots at Demand and attended AustinJS (my first) and met a bunch of interesting people. Good times.

Also, Chris & John over at Lost Art Press just flipped the switch on their new store, which I helped out with a bit. Definitely check it out! It’s built on Shopify, which is a pretty interesting platform. A bit limiting, but less so than any of the other hosted eComm solutions I’ve looked at.

 

A new place for random stuff

2013 Dec 2nd

For a while, I’ve wanted b19y.com, so I finally got off my butt and made it happen. It’s a pretty simple tumblr setup that I plan on using a bit like I used this site. Twitter++ as it were.
