Slack Open European Headquarters in Dublin

Thursday, May 14, 2015 | Posted by to Work, News

Wow it's dusty in here. The last post was in February. Part of the reason for that is my family is temporarily in Dublin, Ireland. My business partner and smooching partner James Sherrett is opening the European office for Slack. Never heard of Slack? It's a messaging app for internal team communication. That means no more email, just this handy desktop and mobile app that organizes your messages and files in one place...

Friday, August 10, 2012 | Posted by to Work, News

Thanks again for all the support after the office fire in our previous building. I’m happy to announced that we moved into our new office on Tuesday and have spent some time this week getting back up and running. There’s still a ton of things we need to replace like our office chairs, shelving, stationery and business cards, but we have some interim furniture and are well on our way. Here...

Yes We Had a Fire

Monday, July 23, 2012 | Posted by to Work, News

There was a fire in our building last Thursday night and our beautiful space is ruined. We know that roofers were doing renovations all week and that the fire started Thursday night at 8 pm, but we don’t know yet if the roof work was related to the fire. Nobody was in the building at the time, which is very lucky, and Crissy and I both had our computers and monitors at home. The...

Testing Localization Settings

Thursday, June 17, 2010 | Posted by to Work, News

Today we are testing the localization settings for our website and server. There appears to be a disconnect between when we think posts are going to go live and when they actually go live. Rather annoying. So now we’re going to test our theories. Some days you are the scientist, some days you are the guinea pig.

Friday, April 16, 2010 | Posted by to Work, News

Todd Sieling of Corvus Consulting is a Boxcar Marketing officemate with an iPad. We covet the iPad. Todd kindly let us play with it. Then he polished our mucky finger prints off the screen. Things I like about Apple’s iPad: Amazingly crisp screen I already know how to use it (I’m an iPhone user) The apps are cool, especially Epicurious It’s in colour vs. Kindle which is black and...

Reading Is Sexy Calendar 2010

Wednesday, December 2, 2009 | Posted by to Events, Work, News

What better way to show the world that reading is sexy than through a pin-up calendar that raises funds to support dyslexia? The Reading Is Sexy Calendar, featuring some of Vancouver’s finest (and sexiest!) readers, is being launched this week. The calendar aims to promote literacy and to raise funds to help kids (and adults) with dyslexia become literate. The idea for a “Reading Is Sexy” calendar was sparked back in...
