“I feel like women are frequently seen as guests in the comedy world — you know, a kid sister of the “real comedians”. I like the idea of positioning myself as legendary rather than trying to fit in. Now do I see myself like that every day? No, but I think it’s a funny attitude and maybe on some weird, spiritual level, maybe it’s a good attitude.” - Chelsea Peretti

Dear Students,

This just in from sharp-eyed Smiley Bone.

In 1947, ten cartoonists drew their characters blind-folded. Can you dig it? Wanna try it?

It’s always so confusing when tumblr people show up in my facebook feed because we share a mutual friend. It always takes me a second to figure out why I recognize them, like when you see a server from your favorite restaurant at the library or something. And then it’s like, “what are you doing in here? you don’t belong here! go back to your home!”

It’s bittersweet that these final days of my current job are some of my most enjoyable to work with. We’ve locked the dev team into maintenance mode, sales requests have died down, I’m taking a hands off approach to my team, and I finally have a chance to fix all those dev issues we never had  time for.

With the assistance of fajita and the team, I hope to have migrated and shutdown four servers, documented fourteen key systems, and built in three new automation processes to assist the company after my absence. 

For a brief two week window, I’m ironically getting to perform the job that would have kept me here if I were ever able to perform it.

However, I’m not oblivious to the fact that my stress hasn’t actually disappeared, simply transferred to coworkers. If you remember your physics, the total stress within an isolated system cannot change - it is said to be conserved over time. Best wishes, team!

A New Career Chapter: Aceable

After six years, three telecom companies, and a codebase that has survived them all, I am finally turning the page on a new chapter of my career. As of Ocober 23rd, I’ll become the Lead Web Developer at the amazing Austin startup, Aceable.com.

Aceable provides a mobile app that teaches you how to drive, with amazing ideas, and a truly awesome team. I’m stoked to be creating new, customer facing applications in the heart of the Austin tech incubator scene and I look forward to many exciting challenges over the next year.

To all my coworkers, bosses, and developers of the last two years, it has been an awesome ride, and I’ll sincerely miss working with each and every one of you. I wish you all the best in your careers, wherever they lead you.


» 42

You ever just look up numbers on Wikipedia? There is a mind numbing amount of facts provided for every number in there. Plus, they start out every wiki entry with the most vital information. “42 (forty-two) is the natural number immediately following 41 and directly preceding 43. “


My Final Fantasy team is doing horrible this year.
