Tom Bihn Daylight Briefcase

I love Tom Bihn, this is my 3rd overall bag from them. This one is more utility than the others. I have a Ristretto for walking around when i don’t need a laptop with me. It’s awesome. It’s not very portable as a secondary bag though, it’s bulky and takes up space in luggage. It certainly doesn’t fit well in my backpack. I’ve been looking for something that would fit in my backpack, for when I’m traveling or just at the office, but want to go out and about but don’t want to lug my whole backpack around. The Ristretto could work, for my iPad, but not my laptop. Plus, like i said, it’s bulky doesn’t really fit in my laptop bag. Enter the daylight. It’s the right size for…

360|iDev 2015, What an amazing thing we did.

So i just finished my big event of the year, 360|iDev and wow. What a rush (as always). TL;DR; So honored to share a room with so many awesome people being awesome. Making amazing things, being parts of amazing teams, etc. I honestly feel this event not only has a positive impact on my life each year, but also does on others, which is humbling to say the least. There’s an amazing photo pool here. Now the long form. I start planning 360|iDev the moment the preceding event ends, so yes, I’ve already begun work on next years event.  A 4 day conference with 55 speakers, 400 attendees and a handful of sponsors isn’t something that comes together in a few weeks. There were a few good, and one bad…

Why I backed the Pebble Time

Say what you will regarding Apple potentially/likely/already dominating or otherwise killing all competition in smartwatches, Pebble found 50,830 people (at the time I’m writing this) to contribute over 11 mil to the next Pebble. And no matter how you slice it they can’t all be “Apple Haters” or even “just android people” In fact most Pebble owners I’ve met have been iPhone owners, many i know backed Pebble Time as well. I think the success (I suppose 11mil, and 50 thousand plus backers is as good as any metric) of the Pebble Time is definitely in part due to Apple. All the rumors, sneaks, and baseless guesses, and all around hype around the Apple Watch have brought smart watches much more into the public eye, that’s good for everyone in the…

I built an app.

Ok I didn’t. I guess I product managed an app :) Tom and his team worked with me on “Edit Me“. I’ve helped get lots of apps launched (no shortage of 360|iDev and Flex apps out there, that I helped with), but this is the first “not a conference attendees app” app. Edit Me, serves a real purpose. Ever had a text message, tweet, Facebook post, etc  that you wanted to run by someone before sending? Maybe you’re a bit too heated, maybe too sad. Maybe just to check your tone, or make sure it’s not wildly offensive, etc. Or just to have a friend proof read it for you. Well that’s what we set out to solve with Edit Me. The idea is pretty straightforward, i’ve got some short form text…
