Pinch me moment

If you don't like over-the-top positive/happy posts, stop reading. I don't write these often because they're generally lame, but had to do it this morning.

How much can go well in a 24 hour period?

  • Yesterday was my birthday.
  • My kids made me fabulous cards.
  • My wife made me a cake and took me out for a great dinner at one of my favorite restaurants; L'Atelier.
  • A company I co-founded, Gnip, had a board meeting in which some incredibly good stuff was finalized (more in coming weeks).
  • Some friends and I have pulled together a unique way to draw programming talent from other parts of the country to Boulder;
  • I won a Google Chrome comic book at auction (this is not an indorsement for Chrome)
  • Some important friendships have found a healthier place for all involved.
  • Hiked Sanitas with a bunch of friends.

Many moons ago I left Boulder to go do interesting things at Netscape in Silicon Valley. It was fun... we changed things. But... the Bay Area became a traffic infested, car driving, grind. No longer worth hanging out there after 3.5 years, we came back to Boulder in the late '90s. I miss a lot of the Valley world. I'd long hoped to mash San Francisco together with Boulder, and it feels like it's finally happening. Just the right amount of mash though; a dash.

My home, and work, lives are in the place I love... home... Boulder.
