It’s been too long

It’s really been too long since I last posted on this blog. An intense new project, a wonderful girlfriend and the return of ski season have meant less time to post here.

However, I fully intend to resume posting again, starting slowly with a photoblog shot a week. I’ll get back to posting interesting links too, but before that I need to rework my posting flow to make it more efficient.

In the meantime, thanks for sticking around!

In Tokyo

In Tokyo

A quick update: I haven’t posted anything recently, as I’ve been preparing for a whirlwind tour of our foreign offices. I am in Tokyo today, and will see Beijing, Bangalore and Tel Aviv over the next couple of weeks. Regular posting will resume in early August!

Fun fact of the day: they have noodle joints here where you place your order from a vending machine. The process of choosing a random meal based on Japanese characters and a number is a bit like “breakfast roulette”, though most of us lucked out and got something tasty.

Google Reader offline

Google Reader offline

As some of you may have guessed, posting has been light because I was busy launching offline functionality for Google Reader. Go try it out and let me know what you think!


The picture above is the Shanghai skyline, which is what happens to be outside my bedroom right now. I’m on vacation in Shanghai and Cambodia, so I won’t be posting for the next week. Expect some nice pictures when I get back though.

Pictures in feed

For those of you who read the site through the feed, I’m aware that it no longer includes pictures. This is an issue introduced by upgrading to WordPress 2.1; I’ll be working on fixing it.

Update: fixed! In the process, I also updated the feed to Atom 1.0, so don’t be surprised if you see a bunch of duplicate items.

Back and blogging

I’m back from my Christmas holiday, and it’s time to start blogging again. Happy New Year to all!

Still no links

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted any links recently. Unfortunately my computer had a major crash a week ago, and I’ve been struggling to put everything back in order. It’s in a semi-stable state now, so I’ll resume posting tomorrow.

Also, my apologies for the absence of posts last week. I got a cold and needed to catch up on sleep. Links will resume again tomorrow. -Nick

New Google Reader!

New Google Reader!

I can finally let you all know why my posting has been so erratic for the last month. While the move to San Francisco certainly had its effect, it’s mainly work that’s been keeping me busy. And today, I’m glad to announce the launch of the new interface for Google Reader!

A fair number of you already read this blog via a feed reader, and I think you’ll really like this new version. For the rest of you, I highly recommend giving Google Reader a try. Google Reader helps you keep track of the sites that interest you, and we’ve focused on making it as easy to use as possible. It also comes with neat sharing functionality: check out my public page. Here’s how one of our engineers explains what Google Reader can do for you:

So give it a try, and let me know what you think!

In other good news, regular posting will now resume. I have a ton of great links saved up for you!

I still don’t have internet at home, but it’s been too long since I’ve posted. I’m going to do my best to get some posts up, starting with a photo tonight. Stay tuned!
