The impromptu Avett Brothers haiku ticket contest I launched on craigslist

Monday, April 26th, 2010

I had a ticket to Wednesday’s Avett Brothers show at the Boulder Theater. I couldn’t go, and so I went to craigslist to sell the ticket. I didn’t want to sell it to the first person to email me … that’s boring. So I wrote this in the post: “If you want the ticket, send […]

Taking care of @ColoradoTweets

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

Today the COTweeters group-tweet list (where anyone can send their tweets to the group, and the whole group gets them) succumbed to spam-bots. It had been getting worse and worse in the past four weeks. The bot-spammers are now winning over on COTweets, so I went and created a new Colorado group-tweet list, ColoradoTweets, that […]

Pre-DNC, Days 4 and 5

Monday, August 25th, 2008

No more fail, just more work. Work Saturday. Work Sunday. Work-people Saturday night at the media party. Wake up Sunday and go to the Green Frontier Fest. Van Jones talks about making the green movement relevant to not just the folk who can afford to be fancy-green. Gosh if news organizations had someone as charismatic, […]

I’m going to call this “Pre-DNC, Day 1”

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008

It’s gettin hectic in the day-job newsroom land. The DNC’s a few days away, and my to-do and get-this-done-right-now lists started exploding as of yesterday. Same goes for everyone, and it’s exciting. I got my Colorado Press Association press pass yesterday — the first press pass I’ve has since interning at the Kenosha News in […]

Hey, weekend: the Post’s Underground Music Showcase (translate: awesome local bands)

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Last year I went to my first DPUMS (Denver Post Underground Music Showcase). Had a great time and saw tons of music I wouldn’t have otherwise seen. It’s a browser’s market — with so many venues so close together you can keep walking until you find something you like. Okay, sure, this may look like […]

Tetris League Denver makes the Denver Post

Monday, July 14th, 2008

This is how it happened: Three weeks ago I was coding away at work, and the Post’s features editor came by to check out the day’s Rocky. We were chatting, he asked how my girlfriend was, and I told him “We’re going to Tetris League tomorrow, it’s the only competitive tetris league in the country.” […]

Bombed my first black diamond last week

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

Okay, so I’m still a noob with all the snowboard lingo, but this I know: I stuck / bombed / went down my first black diamond run last week. It was the Last Hoot run at Keystone, and I carved the heck outta all but one really steep part of it. Awesome, right? Sure. My […]

One year and a few weeks in Colorado. Yup. If there were anything profound to say, I think it would have to / be said in Haiku.
