This is such a great addition to Gmail for Web. It's done really well, and helps with email tracking, creating nice formatted emails, and a good looking email signature! +Olof Mathé is also super responsive to user feedback!
Mixmax works with Gmail to schedule meetings, track opens, embed surveys, and create interactive previews for attachments and links.

Wrote a post on the full-stack employee — which has been getting a lot of traction on Medium (it's #2 in Top Stories right now). Give it a read and let me know if it resonates!

I liked this article +Chris Messina as it reminds me of how I started to think and learn about online methodology. (from a simple entrepreneur standpoint, not employee)

Epic.
 
Unlikely Big Sur Milky Way 

These shots were taken during the few minutes between the Lunar Eclipse and sunrise.  Talk about changing lighting conditions, wow.  The light of the full moon coming out of total eclipse at the same time as the sun is rising, makes for a very difficult 14 shot Milky Way Panoramic.  I am very pleased that I was fast enough to make all the frames blend without editing each one.  You can see the shots were taken from right to left as the background of the sky gets lighter.  This made for a very difficult time in getting the white balance to look natural-ish.

It has been a wild last few weeks around the Haus Der Krieger​.  Looking ahead at the calendar, I see that I was planning on being at the NAB Show next week.  The reason I was going to be there fell through, but I think I will still go.  Oddly enough, I have never been to the NAB event in Vegas.  I worked radio for years and have done broadcasting for decades.  Maybe I will even bring my camera ;) Who else is heading to NAB Show and what should I plan on doing while there?

yes if he lets you be a friend and you go to his site.  He has some fantastic pictures that you just won't believe the talent he has.  And I am used to this stuff.  My son work's for  www.ECGproductions.com  In Atlanta GA.  And they do some crazy stuff for famous people.  But I have to say I am very impressed with his gallery, so amazing.  He has a very good eye and has captured and done thing's with photo's that I only wish I could do.  Trust me he is very good.™╤ⁿ≈╚☼

Interesting to see what the winners were...
At this year’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition, I tasted bourbons that absolutely wowed me. This competition restored my faith in the new bourbons hitting the market, and it reminded me of an old friend that is pretty damn good. As soon as I learned the winners, including one brand I’d never tasted, I immediately …

I've always found Knob Creek to be an excellent bourbon but surprised that BT was ranked behind it.
