This Week



Had fun in Guatape – went to Pablo Escobar’s finca, which was bombed out. Eerily beautiful. Rode a jetski and got stranded. Also exploring Medellin because a friend was visiting – we went to El Castillo and Parque Arvi. Then flew to SF where I’ve been catching up with friends.


This site has had a visual refresh – needs a bit more work, but I’m excited about it. Preparing and practising for workshop next week.

Started promoting the slack channel for new(-ish) eng managers, and we put our webpage up.


Finished The Year Without Pants. Reading  The Laws of Simplicity.

Product links Amazon.


A new edition of Technically Speaking is out.

I sent Where the Hell is Cate letters from Guatape and MDE.

  1. What did you think of _The Year Without Pants_? I thought it was one of the better books I’ve read. I work for a distributed company so I’ve found myself saying “here’s how Automattic does $thing” a lot, especially in my efforts to encourage an internal blog.

    1. I found it super bro-ey, tbh, but definitely insightful about how Automattic worked then. I think the main thing I took away from it was the asynchronicity.
