Baby Business Travel

OCTOBER 25, 2010

I've talked about flying with a baby on my personal blog before. Yes, I've taken my baby on business trips before as well. But as babies become toddlers, mine is 17 months now, they become more opinionated and want certain things.

Let me first say, my kid was awesome on the flight to Chicago last week...

We Grew

OCTOBER 11, 2010

For a really long time now, we have been cramming our coders into our tight office space. A few months back, we finalized our temporary expansion plans by working out a deal to take over some of the available space from our office neighbor...

Job Descriptions Available

SEPTEMBER 22, 2010

So now that we have plans to add more space, we need to hire more people. Obviously, we cannot have space that is not being used - that wouldn't be efficient, would it?

Seriously, we have a few job openings and I wanted to let you know we revised our job descriptions for those openings...

Launch Day Sushi

SEPTEMBER 16, 2010

Today we received a huge delivery of sushi. It contained 40 rolls of sushi, and there are about 6 pieces in a roll - so that is 240 pieces. Not to compare my clients, but this totally beats donuts on launch day...

My TV Debut

SEPTEMBER 13, 2010

As some of you know, at least the ones who read it on my personal blog, I was on national TV for the first time in my life.

NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams asked me to be interviewed for the big announcement of Google Instant, primarily because they saw my predictions and knew they were...

Programmers Have It Easy?

AUGUST 20, 2010

A few days ago a client made a joke about software/web development companies (i.e. us?). It was generally along the lines of “they just charge you for work that other people already have done...

More Space

AUGUST 16, 2010

I am excited to announce we may have a temporary solution for our lack of space problem here in the office.

Our office neighbors are willing to lend us two of their offices and use of their conference room until our lease is up. By then, we should know better what we want to do and would have more...

Free Microcell & Money

AUGUST 10, 2010

As many of you know, I have five bars in the office due to purchasing a MicroCell for the office. It works well, has some sporadic issues here and there, but overall, we are all happy with it.

Then Alex had to one-up me by getting a free MicroCell from AT&T...

Crammed Coders

AUGUST 6, 2010

RustyBrick is doing well, we are growing at a safe but nice pace. But we are in the same office space as we were in 2002. In 2002 we had a total of 3 people in a space of about 1,025 square feet. Starting this Monday, we will have 16 people in the same space...
