Another fond farewell to Cody

It has been a while since we originally said goodbye to Cody. He has been back for a month or two now from college, and will be moving to Seattle on Friday to make games and be awesome. We’ll keep in touch, though–he has agreed to help me with Project AwesomeSquirrel.

The tone of this blog is going to change some over the next few weeks, or at least that’s my goal. There will be more of a focus on writing–that is, on style and tone, how to write, and observations about writing. I look forward to stretching and working.

But not today, because I wrote this last night around 10:15 p.m. after a very long day of work followed by wishing Cody a happy trip. Instead, let me share with you an iPhone 4 review I found inspiring. I couldn’t read this style for too long (this article pretty much hit my limit), but I enjoyed it in this context.

Announcement: The Super Secret Squirrel Project Revealed!

For about a month now, I’ve been working on something kept mostly secret. Something very exciting that will hopefully change my life. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for years, but for some reason I never did. Until now.

Let’s get to it.

Announcing: SilverPen Publishing LLC

SilverPen Publishing is now an actual company. After tons of research, a lot of brainstorming, and meeting with both an accountant and an attorney, I have everything in place for SilverPen to become a reality. It’s not just publishing, though we’re doing that too. SilverPen is a full service technical writing, training, and consultation provider.

Announcing: echo linux

The first ongoing project published by SilverPen is echo linux, a site for news, reviews, and how-tos about technology in general and Linux in particular.

I’d been looking for a site for which I could write, someone else who would give me articles and opportunity. I couldn’t find one, so I decided to make it.

Announcing: Kickstarting a book!

And the culmination of all this is that I am writing a book about gaming on Linux. I’m pretty stoked about this, since it is something I’ve been interested in and am passionate about. I have created a project on Kickstarter to help fund this, so check that page out. Even if you can’t support me financially, be sure to subscribe to the newsletter to get periodic updates and announcements about the book.

Check out my Kickstarter project.
