Vacation was GREAT. Being offline in a house on a lake was superb, as as hiking, boating, swimming, cooking and writing the specs for Oakland Local. Yep, nothing like vacation for planning your next big adventure.

I’m working this summer, along with a team of people, to launch Oakland Local, a news & community hub for Oakland. It’s exciting to move back into building something like this; my first life in local and community was at Scholastic, with Scholastic Network; in 1993; then New Jersey Online in 1996, then Netscape.com….this feels like a good full circle.

What’s on the docket now?

  • Finishing the spec
  • Working with the developers
  • Making it happen.
