The iPhone turns 9

Nine years ago today Eliza, John Gruber, Rob Sandie, Matt Regula and I were standing in line for the original iPhone. Here are a few photos:

It was quite a day. Looking back on it now, that day changed everything we do now.

Food in jars – learning to can food

It is no secret that Eliza and I have a lot of learning to do regarding our gardening adventures. Our biggest problem to solve, it seems, will be what to do with all of the produce. Marisa McClellan has our solution. FoodInJars.com is her Web site that has a single mission: “a campaign to teach people to can”.

Marisa, we’ll be referencing Food In Jars a lot in the coming months. Thanks for the hard work involved in putting it out there.

Philadelphia Weblogger Meetup – February 17th

Though this event is split into two parts, the Philadelphia WordPress Meetup and the Philadelphia Webloggers Meetup to me it is all just about blogging and so I sign up for both.

Chris at Ten Stone Bar – April 15, 2006

This Saturday (February 17th from 2:30pm till about 4pm) I’ll be attending the Philadelphia Webloggers Meetup at Ten Stone Bar & Restaurant. Will you be there?

 

So far Eliza, Mike, and Chris are coming with me. It looks like Rob, Tom, and Marisa are definitely going. Andrea and Jason might be going. And sadly Tony G. can’t make it. Update: Happily Tony G. is able to make it!

And, it appears we’re going to have a fairly full house.

If you are in the Philadelphia area (heck I’m 2 1/2 hours away and I’m still going) and you’d like to meetup with some great people to discuss WordPress, blogging, Viddler, or just sit back and enjoy a beer – sign up to the meetup and we’ll see you there.

Note: You can add this event to your calendar program of choice since this post is marked up using hCalendar. Enjoy.

Note addendum: It appears that the above link won’t work for Outlook users? Not sure why – probably because Outlook sucks? 😉

Eliza went crazy with Photo Booth

Eliza saw Mike’s recent Photo Booth extravaganza photos and wanted to make some of her own, so she did.
