  • My New Gig: CTO at Avalanche Technology Group

    After ten years (!) at the SitePoint Group, I started a new job in January. For the first time in a decade, I feel like I have everything to learn and more than a little to prove, which is both incredibly exciting and a wee bit scary.

  • 2012 Apple iPad Event Predictions (Updated)

    Like clockwork, Apple is hours away from announcing the third generation iPad. I’m sure I won’t be the only Australia-based Apple watcher getting up at 5AM to take in the news. Since people keep asking me, I thought I might as well break the blogging ice with my predictions for today.

  • Radioshift Subscriptions as iTunes Podcasts

    Like many displaced Canadians, I like to listen to CBC Radio 3 at work to keep me feeling culturally connected to my home country. But the shows I enjoy tend to be on at inconvenient times here in Australia. Thanks to Radioshift, that isn’t a problem! Radioshift from Rogue Amoeba is a Mac application for scheduled recording of web radio streams. Radioshift makes it easy to import your recordings into iTunes, but it would be nice, I thought, if those recordings showed up as a podcast, instead of normal music tracks in my iTunes library.

  • An Open Letter to the Microsoft Partner Program

    I continue to be amazed by how horrible a job your web team does. Why would we ever take marketing advice from Microsoft?

  • Sketching Dreams

    I feel like I may have some things to write about again soon. Before you ask, I’m not being cagey, here. Mostly this is just a vague feeling, perhaps brought on by my recent visit home to Canada—a reminder that there are people I care about with whom I don’t communicate much (no, Facebook doesn’t count). I dreamed up a fresh (but simple!) site design last night, so I broke out the Wacom to see if it worked in two dimensions. If I can keep it balanced, I think it might. redesignsketch_small.png Note to self: ask Lox if he minds me recycling his old comic book header idea.
