LP Factory outtakes
One of my favorite moments from working with Flickr peeps. Special times. And I rock at sound effects.
Dedication to his art
Man, now I’m all reminiscing about Tumblr. 2 years ago all of 40 people maybe piled into a rental in the Hamptons. That summer was fun times for the company. :)
Oh god, as someone who worked for both Yahoo and Tumblr — I am at a loss for words. And who’s this ‘source’ with this crazy quote? It just makes me start putting roles to people: Joffrey, Sansa — who the heck is Tyrion?!
Keep on shipping cool stuff, guys!
PS I love how this executive who shall not be name threw in the word “incredible” in there.
Alaric, my co-founder for Imagist, has recently taken to Medium. It’s the first platform that’s gotten him to write again as he’s more inclined towards long form. I’m super happy to see it. As someone who works in technology, we feed off creativity from all parts of our lives, and the best products come from our inspirations that oftentimes flash in the horizon far from our comfort zone.
Without us knowing it - while Alaric was hacking it as a writer in Bangkok, I was a few hundred miles away, trying to hack it as a writer in Hanoi. Both of us came to technology haphazardly - both found inspiration in the writer-heroes of our youth and aspired to be storytellers - and both of us continue to chase that dream, to be narrative weavers, in our current work of commits and pixels.
I’m excited to be working on Imagist with Alaric. We started as friends interested in traveling and foraging and biking. I’ve found that our differences have complemented our work, but more important, our similar motivations and passions have made getting up and working an everyday joy.
Back to gardening. Filed under: things I am getting back to on the West Coast.
Fuck yeah Tumblr! Go go go!.
