My new Kindle Fire

Recently I won a Kindle Fire in a Hacker Buddy give away, sponsored by Tokbox. (Hacker Buddy is a site that connects hackers to other hackers with the goal of helping each other out, you should check it out)

I wanted to write up a summary of my experience using the device.

I’m not going to bore anybody with specs, information or detail. Enough information can be found online, eg. on the Amazon Kindle store.

I have arrived in Palo Alto

Good news. I have finally arrived in Palo Alto.

I just got to my hotel and I’m getting my apartment later this week (hopefully), so you could say that I’ve officially moved.

Palo Alto

On a professional level, the last year and a half has been pretty interesting. I’ve been managing my own projects, doing freelancing work, did some traveling, even some classes at a university, tried to work on a lot of side projects, etc. I can’t say I did everything I wanted to, but it’s still been pretty great.

However, times are going to get even more interesting in the coming months…

Bit the bullet, redid the layout

I bit the bullet and added the sidebar on this blog’s theme. I wanted to keep the blog design really simple and clean with no side column, but I think it’s easier to browse the articles etc when you have the categories, etc.
