Taking a break from all the collaborating

Taking a break from all the collaborating, originally uploaded by George.

DC Metro AD

First it was disorienting, then it was weird, then I got fond of them, and now that they’re down (at least along my morning commute) I’ve grown wistful. Palm was very much my graduate education in engineering (such as it is), and though its barely a shadow of its former self (a shadow darkened by missed potential) it was fun to see my old work and new work together.

My most recent feature at work just went live!

Actually lots went live today, it was kind of crazy.

Les is going to be joining here in the happy valley, while Hugo has left the W3C(!?!?!) to join as well.

(And soon, we’ll return to some non-Yahoo-centric blogging)

Traffic, how do people do it?

June 8th, 2006

I have never in my entire life cared about traffic. I don’t drive, I don’t commute, my long commute in Seattle only took 20 minutes to walk because the line at Lighthouse Roasters was so long.

Now I find myself painfully aware of the ins and outs, and more strangely the cardiovascular health of the Bay Areas freeway systems. Major clogs and blockages have serious impacts on my plans.

So um, how do people track this stuff? Presumably there is some sort feed, or maybe SMS notification I sign up for customized to roads I care about?

I hear we map traffic here at CorporateHQ, which I guess would be fine if traffic fascinated me and I wanted to monitor it all day, but really I don’t have the attention for that, and I was thinking about something a little bit more interrupt driven, and targeted.

Anyone got a suggestion?

update: People did, including * move * listen to the radio * “dialing 511 on your mobile phone can help. It has a Tellme (or at least, Tellme-esque) voice interface that’s kinda annoying and hit/miss, but you can at least tell it a major highway by name and it will tell you about any delays right now on that highway.” * Y! traffic rss | grep ‘101|280’ | SMS

thanks everybody!

May 22nd

May 7th, 2006

Starting May 22nd.

update [2006/5/23]: It was pointed out to me today that I was a bit opaque with this announcement. As of yesterday I’m working at Flickr out of the Santa Clara office, and living in San Francisco.

Btw you know you’ve arrived at a large company when a hundred people turn up for the weekly new hire orientation.

We’ve been talking about a move to New York ever since I moved back from Seattle, just over a year ago. (Boston, as much as we like it, has always been a way station)

Recent events have moved up our timeline (which had been lazily extending itself for months) and now we’re looking to make a move by the end of the year. (as in 18 days and counting)


So we’re looking for housing, either short term, or not, immediately, if not sooner. Any tips would be great. (ideally something more then “Brooklyn, baby, Brooklyn”)


And I’m taking this change to seriously start looking for the next gig, which has been on the back burner. If you read this blog you have a sense of what I do, and what I’m interested in.

If you happen to know a team doing cool and innovative work, that could use a LAMP(R) hacker, syndication guru, and/or calendar wonk, put them in touch. Additionally if you know someone interested in getting some perspective on the evolving nature of the Web, the network, or open source from someone who has been engaged in the work and community for 8+ years, I’ve been know to wear that hat as well.
