Nomad Pod Pro Review

This might be the perfect travel companion for iOS device owners. The Nomad Pod Pro. Love it! tl;dr; just under 4″ diameter. just over 1″ tall under a half pound in weight 6,000 mAh battery built in (mfi) lightning connector Mine came the other day and I’m excited for my next trip, which sadly since it’s winter and camping/conference season has more or less wrapped up, but we’ve got a long road trip, might be a good test. Never the less, this thing is cool. You supply the watch charger, and for mine I just bought the shortest cable one Apple has, but there’s enough room to wrap a much longer cord if that’s what you’ve got. You pull the top off, held on by really strong magnets, wrap your…

Denver Startup Culture

tl; dr; Is Broken, but fixable. the long form: I got into a Facebook fight with a CEO the other day. He was mad i said a blog post on his site was click bait (which it was, but the popular term is content marketing). I was mad because it doled out praise for “making Denver Startup Week happen” to a group of people that certainly did participate in the week, but only 1 was a member of our actual team that drives the event, AKA “Making it happen”. As a member of the team that makes it happen i was a bit insulted. Not that i was not included, but that my work was being ascribed to others. Coincidentally in an effort to quantify my time, I track it (not 100% well,…

So I think I’m close to done with Fitbit

Not because I don’t like it, I like my fitbit, a lot! I’ve had one since the money clip looking one (Ultra? One?), which i eventually lost and got a replacement for in the form of the new model, which i got $50 off courtesy of Fitbit support, which is a really cool thing they do. I’ve got many family members using Fitbit, lots of friends, even my dog has one (how they haven’t made a dog specific one yet is beyond me). So why leave? Silo’s. I hate ’em. Mostly though I hate multiple silos (and am well and truly at the bottom of the Apple one), more so when they don’t play together, even a little. Like ’em, or hate ’em Apple is getting a better and better stack,…

10 Years

September 24th, 2005. I got hitched. To the most amazing person I’ve ever met. 10 years later, she’s still amazing, still my best friend, still the person i want to see when i go to sleep and when i wake up (and the times in-between! LOL) 10 years later and we’ve said good-bye to 4 dogs (Mojo, Scooter, Terrence and Phillip), welcomed 2 new ones (Paco and Winston) into our lives. 10 years later and we’re happy and thriving, living in an awesome city, walking and biking where ever we can. 10 years later and we’re still trying new things. 10 years later and we’re camping when we can and experiencing nature more than we ever did before. 10 years later it’s still the adventure of a lifetime.   I…
