Day 86 (RC 39)

Thursday was kind of nuts.

In the morning I got in kind of late, but committed to two things next week: helping Steve learn about Go HTML templates and helping Kamal learn about prototyping websites quickly with CSS.

I went for a quick lunch and then went off for an interview at LittleBits. That went really well. It was supposed to be 30 minutes, and I ended up talking to people for a little over three hours (for personal record I talked to Josh, Joe and Jenny).

After that, I took a slow walk south from their office at 26th and 11th down to the Judd House at the corner of Spring and Mercer.

This place was utterly amazing. One of the most beautiful living spaces I have ever seen. Sadly there were no photos allowed inside, but I got some of the @onuniverse folks and @josephcohen whom I tagged along with to see this beautiful place.

Afterwards, we grab some beers and chatted. Then I went back to RC where some wine was drank, then a bunch of us grabbed delicious Indian food, and then more wine was drank.

Today I spent a bunch of time and beat Broken Age Act 2. I sadly couldn't find my name in the backer section of the credits... Oh well. Great game.

Lets see, today I worked on trying to get gene (my drum machine) working in a way that would render nicely on mobile. I didn't get very far though.

Today was the first truly bad commute in NYC. Train got stuck for at least fifteen minutes, so I ended up abandoning the G train and walking a bit, which was fine, because it was gorgeous out! During my walk and long commute, I listened to the latest Design Matters. Morley talked about how a mentor told her to look in the mirror and say "I love you" every day for a year. I found this concept frightening, which is very interesting to me. Her following point really hit the idea home, which was "if you can't love yourself, how can you expect others to love you" (paraphrased). Later in the day, I was watching Kendrick Lamar perform "i", and I realized he was saying the same thing, so I read through the lyrics. The annotations led me to this gem by Kendrick:
