Another year in review

The year 2010 was an important and epic one for me, so as it ended I wrote about it in some detail. In doing so, I set myself the goal of documenting each year I survive, and as 2011 was equally epic in some regards, I really want a record of it for the future me.

Another lesson learned

19th October 2011

I learned many things at Brooklyn Beta last week, but one lesson in particular will stay with me for some time. Taking to the stage to announce our ambitious new web app capped a humbling and fear-inducing afternoon. Despite years of experience presenting to crowds, I was a mess.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been enjoying the beautifully designed mixes over at Designers.MX, curated by Blake Allen and Josh Sullivan. So, it was a pleasure to contribute a mix, although I opted for something a little more, erm… risky.

That was the year that was

2nd January 2011

I’d been hesitant about writing a review of my 2010, partly because it is something I’ve avoided each year, and also because I had such a brilliant and eventful twelve months that I hate the idea of appearing arrogant or self-indulgent.
