StartupWeekend announced “open” at BIL

So this may seem really silly to some of you, but this was actually a pretty exciting moment for me. Among all of the prep for Ashley’s birthday on Saturday, I was keeping an eye peeled at the live feed from the BIL conference to see Andrew Hyde announce something that I’ve had the pleasure to work on for the past couple of weeks.

Who doesn’t want to hear their president cursing? Check it out on April’s blog.

If you’re into Lost like I am, add my Lost blog Lost Bits to your feed reader. I spent some time fixing up the site and actually validating the RSS this weekend, so it should be good to go. There are a couple of videos up on it already, some photos, with much more to come with the new season starting up soon.

Seeed and Some New Web Apps

Thought I can’t claim to have built any web applications (yet) I do enjoy the discussion there. Already I’ve found a couple of interesting sites, both for me to use and for me to link to.
