This year I'm doing my own thing with my own product company and a related startup. I'm not doing anything "disruptive" or impressive, but I hope to be profitable very quickly. As a result I've been spending time between Orange County and Las Vegas.
Since I'm doing my own thing I've had the chance to go to some great meetups and conferences, including JS.LA, LA Ruby Conf, and SCaLE 12x. Special thanks to Ron Evans for reminding me how cool doing this stuff is.
Please excuse the website. I'm building the grid system and everything else from scratch.
