I Voted 2014!


Doing my part for democracy.


I really hope this happens. Having an MLS soccer team, but more importantly a team playing in downtown Minneapolis, would be great. I’d definitely look at season tickets!

United Properties says pro soccer is an option for a site it may develop near the Minneapolis Farmers Market — a sign that the Minnesota Vikings may have a serious rival in their bid to bring Major League Soccer to their new home in Downtown East.

I wonder how you put this into Yelp? From the mini-donut stand in Nisswa, MN.

Mayday Did It!

I’m very happy to be one of the over fifty-thousand backers of Mayday PAC.

This seems like the best use possible for this book.

Inbox Metrics

Yes, I actually do graph the activity in my inbox. How does it go? You can’t manage it if you don’t measure it? I do this for my SPS inbox as well. The numbers are much larger.

Our Neighborhood in 1938

My friend Garrick shared this link to the Minnesota Historical Aerial Photographs Online site. It is a pretty cool site where you can see aerial photos all over Minnesota going back as far as 1920. I immediately went and looked where we live and they currently only have one photo from 1938. I’ve highlighted our lot in yellow.

It was surprising to me that the tennis courts were in place back then. In fact, the entire Minnehaha Creek West Park seems to be pretty much as it is now with the same walking bridges and everything.

Our street doesn’t exist yet. The entire row of houses that we live in are not there but the other side of the block has been developed.  Our house was built the following year, in 1939.

I also pulled up our previous house in Minnetonka in 1937 and it was entirely farmland. Was still farmland in 1956. The transformation there is amazing.

The title says it all. Use bug trackers for issues. Don’t put them in OmniFocus, it clutters everything up with a lot of noise.
