Welcome to the neighbourhood

Warehouse Boat

So yesterday I finally moved into my new apartment in the Potrero Hill district of San Francisco. In the morning I went on a walk on and around nearby Third Street, and thanks to my new flatmate Tom whose camera I borrowed, I think I managed to capture just some of the inspiring scenery to be found here. In fact I’ve only just scratched the surface, as this place is full of photo opportunities.

I also just found a nifty little shortcut in iPhoto, that allows you to quickly and easily play around with a photos colour balance. It works by just apple-clicking on any portion of an image - suddenly I feel like I can have some more fun with my photos!

Anyway, I think this change of scenery is really starting to get my creative juices flowing again, and hopefully it’s starting to show!

Time for a Reboot

It’s late Sunday evening, and I’ve just been for a brief walk around the neighbourhood.

Falling in Love with Austin

Just a quick post (at 4:45am CDT) as I’m feeling a little guilty that I’m behind on my blog posting (plus I can’t sleep due to anxiety about this evenings 20×2 performance).

If SXSW made beer, it would probably be the best beer in the world

Before leaving for the airport, I sat in an isolated part of the Convention Center and felt a huge part of me not wanting to leave. I have been to a few conferences now, but SXSW is a stand out favourite.

What If... The Result

So, on Monday evening I took the plunge and made my debut speaking engagement at the 20×2 event at SXSW. Luckily, it all came together at the last minute (and I mean last minute) and wasn’t too embarrassing. For those that weren’t there, here it is:

Finally, A Ning To Be Proud Of

Ning At last, I’m able to grab a spare few minutes and get round to talking about the all new Ning that we launched almost three weeks ago. In that time, I have heard lots of positive feedback from people at SXSW, and the ever increasing collection of reviews and reactions you can find online. However I want to talk a little about the project from a more personal perspective.

Big Words

Steve McClaren

So I’ve just checked the BBC Sport website, and once again I read about another dismal performance from the England team (Israel 0-0 England).
