Really enjoying the latest TechZing with Joanna Wiebe of CopyHackers. I've been really struggling with writing good copy and she's got some really great insights.

No, it's a new service that lets you stream messages between users on your website. The hackathon project is still in limbo -- it's not clear yet that there are users who need it.

Floorplan from the hard-hat tour of the new 1871 tech coworking space in the Merchandise Mart. Plus a random arm to add a sense of action.

Woot! Team Cerrio won best open source app at the SocialDevCamp Hackathon with GatherPeeps. Great fun to work with such an awesome team. First all-nighter in years was well worth it.
