Changes

misc_workerLast Friday was a bittersweet day for me, as I walked out of RainStorm world headquarters for the final time after 8 years of working/playing there. If you haven’t heard of them, it’s a group of people that does great work with some willing clients. For my part, I often didn’t log my time under anything besides “Misc.” (see the helpful post it note attached by my former co-worker Evan), but I did learn a lot from my co-workers and the projects we undertook, and I had a great time in the process. Some highlights include building a network of adult education websites for Maine, designing and evolving systems for sales and project management, and the many, many shenanigans (like this) that were had over the years.

The happy news is that I’ve now joined 10up as a Senior Web Strategist, helping the team of 40+ designers, engineers and project managers build some crazy awesome websites and applications on WordPress, the world’s best publishing platform. A week into my time at 10up, and I’m already learning from many of the great people here. I’m looking forward to continuing to create and promote ideas on the web, taking the best memories along with me, and making more ahead.

It’s a book!

After months of waiting, I’m finally able to announce that I’ve co-written a book:

Michael Moore Is A Big Fat Stupid White Man

Pre-order it, read all about it, and keep up to date with the Book Blog, all over at moorelies.com/book.

Thanks to all whose support made the book possible- Judith Regan, Bridie, Jim, Ellen, everbody else at ReganBooks, Jim & Lee at Moorewatch.com, Mike Wilson, and of course the family.

on his way

In a few short weeks, our baby, who is not even born, will own more things than we do.

He’s already well on his way. After a suprise baby shower in Connecticut this weekend and several scattered items besides, we’re grateful that his room is filling up fast with gifts from people who have never met him, never talked to him, never seen him except in small grainy black and white pictures with arrows pointing to his tiny hands.
