I hate email. A note to my readers..

I know the title is terrible.

And after a year of not writing any blog posts to come back with such a hate-filled title is not very nice… i probably just did it to get your attention. 😉

Or maybe just because, I thought this blog was getting 0 readers but I just found out today that I’ve been getting plenty of readers – not only have they been reading, they’ve been commenting!!! Over 15 comments were “waiting to be approved” in my wordpress console today.

So the next question: How did i not know?

I’ll tell you why. My inbox is a freakin war zone.

An image is worth a thousand words: (or in this case, 10,749 unread emails)

Fast forward to today: In addition to Grow Conference being awesome, a fluke accident caused me to look in my “all mail” box, and saw this comment I got today on my blog post.

Little did I know, there have been >15 comments from REAL people, who enjoyed my posts & took out there time to comment.

It’s ironic no? Blogging & commenting, a technology created to democratize communication – needed a new technology to combat the spammers who abused that channel of communication. Only to have this technology get rid of the very people whom I wanted to hear from.

Anyways – in summary, you may have commented on my Facebook Map, or another post & I am finally reading & responding to them today!

Please reach out & let me know if my writing, stories & coding projects are helpful in this blog.

Some of the topics I’m thinking of writing on:
– my recent Facebook & Google Product Manager interviews (those always seem to be informative)
-my current job leading iPhone development @ Invoke Media, projects there like the Eat St. iPhone app I developed that is going to hit 250,000 downloads this week,
– my personal hacking projects
– the vancouver startup scene, local startups & other tech startupy stuff

Let me know which ones you’d like to hear in the comments below. And this time, I’m gonna make sure I get those email notifications! 😉

Firefox doesn’t like 111+ tabs – Anyone have a cure for tabulitis?

I’ve gone and done it again.

I made firefox crash.

a few days and 111 tabs later firefox and I couldn't keep our relationship from breaking

111 tabs is quite a lot, I suppose. But that’s why I got a 15″ MBP with 4 Gb of memory!!!

I’m starting to try the firefox readitlater plugin – which connects well with the iPhone app, but it’s going to take me some getting used to.

Any suggestions?
