What's everyone's favorite Buganizer competitor for use outside of Google?  I love the search functionality, nested-tree organization, ticket states, audit logs, and hotlists.

Great write-up on Spotter News, going a bit deeper into our tech stack than the initial articles.  Also, I'm really glad I got a manicure for this photo shoot! :)

Today, +Tom Charytoniuk and I launched Spotter, an iOS app that discovers the most important news for your industry, your employer, and your contacts, and custom ranks them for you based on your interests. It's news for your career. An "industry news cheat sheet". The fastest way to stay informed.

Here's the link to install: http://itunes.apple.com/app/id966430113

Thanks to everyone who helped us so far, especially +Dmitry Shapiro, and everyone who helped beta test, give feedback, and share important news articles with us so we could build an amazing data set.

Just learned about (and turned on) "preboot" on my Heroku servers.  On new binary pushes, it keeps the old binaries up until the new binaries can field requests, improving client latency.  This is basically how Google does pushes, but on Heroku, it's opt-in.

All I had to do was:
$ heroku features:enable preboot

Haleakala Crater, on the top of Maui!  It's always amazing how well photos here turn out.  Even though the clouds were almost all the way up!

I took my mom to Hawaii for her 70th birthday, and our first stop was Lana'i - a Hawaiian island owned almost entirely by Larry Ellison, the tech CEO!  It was a fascinating trip.  They're doing so much now to make sure the citizens are happy, that there's an economy beyond tourism, and that the tourism that does exist enjoys only the best of amenities.  Here are some shots I took along the way.

It's been three months since this list came out and I wished to visit every one... well, I have only made it to 32.   The 6 remaining are Bar Agricole, Commonwealth, La Ciccia, Coi, Humphry Slocombe, Swan Oyster Depot.  There's various reasons why I haven't done those 6... Coi costs at least $200/person, for one.  And I haven't wanted ice cream :).  Anyway...

My 3 absolute favorites from this list were:
1) SQPR.  So tasties, so innovatives.  My favorite in SF.
2) Perbacco.  Kind of a businessy-location, but they seriously know how to make pasta.  And the service was extremely good.   Loved it.
3) R & G Lounge.  I didn't expect much.  Instead I was transported to China!  Weirdly authentic.

Runner ups are Tony's and La Taqueria.  It's hard to even restrict my list to 5... they're all so good!  You should go to any one of them!
