I’ve flown some 24 000 km from Toronto to Vancouver to San Francisco to Beijing and back to San Fran. I’ve since moved to Silicon Valley for the next 6 weeks (hopefully more!) to work full time as an intern for Appfuel, from cooking to crashing developer meetups! The weather here is amazing and the house is even better!
I’ve been so caught up in things that I’ve yet to write a conclusion for my NBTC post, but I’ll get to that, of course. My previous posts are backed up but recovering them will be a pain–I’ll get around to that as well, seeing as how I’m surrounded by 3 computer engineers.
Edit: I’ve since completely revamped my website, changed how I’m going to engage users, and have cleaned out my web disk. So officially, this will be my first post. Yay!
A few other notes:
- I’ve decided to make my life easier and port over my previous portfolio to 500px and the newly revamped Flickr. It’s such a shame that Flickr looks so beautiful now… I may have to abandon 500px before I even started it. But I have noticed that the level of engagement on 500px is so much higher than on Flickr! Hmm… time will tell which one I choose.
- I finally caved in to about.me and made my own page. It’s just much nicer, cosmetically, than how I used to do it via WordPress. Good for me too, as I just redirect honghu.ca to that page.
Edit: I’ve since kept about.me as just a page and have this blog as the landing site.
- Google+ keeps trying to get me to join. They conned me to join when I went to the Play Store to rate an app, and I’ve kept my profile pretty spartan for now… Seriously, who has the time to keep up on yet another social network? Google+ is perhaps 2x better than the competition, not nearly close enough to the 10x it needs for me to adopt it.
- The HTC One is amazing! I bought the phone within a week of launch and the camera performance has been spectacular! Later this week I’ll get a T-Mobile SIM Card and set up Google Voice.
- Science Expo is hiring!
Exciting, exciting things are happening. Perhaps I’ll cut back on reddit to blog more.
My next step? Actually finding readers for this blog, and to post relevant issues and discoveries.
