The End of an Era

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Back in 2011, I wrote a post on the Viddler Blog about our change in focus away from Personal (free) users to business/corporate/education customers. That was a hard transition for me. It was even harder for the users. We occasionally still get messages from that old user base asking us where their videos went. I sent […]

Who’s heading to SXSW 2012?

Friday, February 10th, 2012

I originally posted this on Google+ and Facebook last week. No traction in those places, so here it is on my bloggy blog. If you’d prefer to comment on either of the aforementioned posts, or @djsteen on Twitter, then go nuts. 🙂 Who’s heading to SXSW 2012? In short, I’m looking for: Accommodation. (Wanna share […]

Serious Winter Gear required

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

I’ve been meaning to get some winter gear for around six months — ever since I moved to Buffalo, New York. The fact that it was summer didn’t motivate me much even though I know such clothing would have been on sale back in April. It’s now getting chilly up here in Buffalo and I’m […]

Flushing Tampons down the toilet

Friday, November 19th, 2010

I recently encountered something I honestly didn’t expect: a tampon in the toilet. Several years ago a friend of mine told me a story of how foreign exchange students had been flushing tampons down the toilet and her school. The pipes eventually got clogged, they burst, and the teachers’ lounge was soaked. That story has […]

Australian Adventures with Rachel

Friday, November 12th, 2010

As many of you know, I flew back to Australia at the end of June in 2009. My return flight was only valid for a year, so it was my plan to spend some quality time with my family before uprooting my Australian life and moving to the USA. Unbeknownst to me, Rachel flew down […]

Katy Perry’s Firework inspired this

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Katy Perry recently launched the music video for her single “Firework”. I wouldn’t consider myself a fan of Katy Perry, but Rachel sure is. I don’t know Katy Perry; I don’t know much about her; I don’t know how much of her music is her work; or how much is the work of the music […]
