Hyatt: Would you like to check-in on the web?
Me: Hell yeah, that sounds great. Awfully convenient.
… and that’s how we begin our Memorial Day Weekend.
A wee bit overgrown… on Flickr.
The St. Louis Zoo sign is a tad bit overgrown with ivy…
Gateway Arch on Flickr.
I was walking around the Arch Grounds with my wife before a Cardinals game when I looked up to see one of the brightest blue skies I’d seen in a long time. The clouds were positioned perfectly.
My wife was pregnant at the time with Jane. Thanks in large part to this long walk, she ened up on bedrest a week or so later, then delivered Jane at 28 weeks.
So this picture has a *lot* of sentimental value. It may not be expertly composed, but I can’t help but look at it and smile.
At Google I/O 2013, Google’s Rachel Garb & Helena Roeber presented on Android’s Design Principles. (tl;dr Enchant, Simplify, Amaze).
While I’m very familiar with Apple’s Human Interface Guidelines, I came to realize that I knew next to nothing about Android’s design principles (except for how much I hate having to design for Android’s fragmented ecosystem of software and screen sizes).
This presentation is pretty good, and definitely worth your time to watch – especially when you see the opening shot of Garb & Roeber behind a Macbook Pro with an Android sticker over the Apple logo. :-)
An unexpected helicopter.
It’s a #scotch outside kind of night.
Sweet-ass whip, dawg. #stretch #custom
What a fun track from 2007.
You know, the lost decade.
Damn, I miss DFW.
