Video of my talk “Apportioning Monoliths”

This was my talk at the Daho.am conference. Listening back to it now, I am struck by how often I said “many, many.” And I cursed! I usually try not to do that. So, it’s a bit of a looser take on this presentation. Luckily the audience had beer (this was in Bavaria, after all), so all were fine with it. I had flown in from Stockholm that morning, so I might have been a bit more tired than I thought…

I was really impressed by the lineup of speakers and the content of the presentations. A really good day. The Stylight engineering and event teams did a great job.

A recording of my talk from SudWeb 2014

Forgot that I had a head cold when I gave this talk, so my voice sounds a bit rough, and I start a bit slow. So sorry about that, but I’m so grateful for the high quality recording that the SudWeb team did.

From the culture comes anything else.

Appowr interview from Budapest

A bit out of context: “Think it, Build it, Ship it, Tweak It”, “Go Big or Go Home” and “Play Fair” are some of Spotify’s core values, but you get the idea.

It was really great meeting Jacqueline Do and the Appowr and Layer Gloss crew in Budapest.

Took me 10 years to get around to editing this video, but here it is. This was one of my favorite shows that we did. Besides playing the awesome Crocodile again, we played with great bands (Charm Particles and Black Night Crash) and we did some of my favorite (to this day) songs. Hopefully, this stuff still stands up.
