It finally happened!!! As I eluded to previously, I’ve finally become a father. My beautiful baby girl arrived over the weekend and is completely perfect.
Refresh Denver Rescheduled
Unfortunately, (although I personally didn’t mind, ), I wasn’t able to make it to the Refresh Denver meeting Monday night to give my talk about jQuery. I heard several people showed up just to hear about jQuery, and I do apologize for letting them down. Matt has graciously rescheduled my talk for February.
jQuery call for help
As I was killing time last week, I got caught up on some of my work with the jQuery project. Turns out, I was promoted and didn’t even know it. I’m now the only contributor, besides John, who’s helping maintain the jQuery.com website. If you’ve got experience with system administration on the Linux platform and would like to help, please contact me.
Parenthood and Unplugging Update
About a month back, I wrote a post about my grandiose plans to unplug from the net in preparation for parenthood. I thought it’d be fun to post a quick update on how I’ve been doing. In one word, “utter failure”. Ok, that was two words, but I needed two words to get my point across.
Given that I only have two days of parenthood under my belt now, I do have two observations. One, trying to manifest the discipline for parenthood before it actually happened only created extra stress because I set my life stage to ‘Parent’ while still living like ‘No Kids’. Second, the moment I held that baby in my arms the first time, I was confident I’ll have no problem unplugging in the future.
