Today, Novell is releasing something I (and the rest of the team I’m on) have been working on for a while:, a website which focuses on usability studies and analysis for the Open Source desktop.

Welcome, Ryan!

Awesome news, Ryan.

Hula, Open Source mail and calendar server

Tuesday, February 15th, 2005

Today, Novell has announced Hula, a new Open Source project based on NetMail’s code. Hula is a calendar and mail server.

The Hula Logo

I designed the logo, the website, and the web interface for Hula itself and worked with a bunch of great developers while doing so. It was a lot of work and quite fun to help make this project a reality.

Even though it was announced just a few hours ago, it is already generating some buzz in the news — and many people (including those on the new IRC channel #hula, on are psyched.

Nat has a lot of info about Hula on his blog.

Also, check out the screenshots.

New website theme and stuff!

Wednesday, January 26th, 2005

I changed the style of my website. It’s a little broken right now (in single post view and with the comments just a bit), but mostly works. That stuff will get fixed later. (:

It’s now time to go get some food and hang out with Tuomas, Jakub, and Ken (who just set up his own ‘blog).

Utah ’04 wrap-up

Sunday, December 19th, 2004

I’ve been in Utah for the past week-and-some-days on a work-related trip. Today, I’m flying back to Massachusetts

Things done while in Utah:
# Met a lot of great people in the Provo office.
# Also met Ryan and Josh, from #photography (and elsewhere)
# Went on a few photo trips with Ryan and Josh
# Hung out with Nat while he was in the area
# Pictures, pictures, pictures!

Places visited:
# Novell office in Provo, UT
# Snowbird
# Antelope Island
# Salt Lake City
# Arches National Park
# Natural history museum

Random events which took place:
* Finally got my charger and batteries on Monday, a week after I ordered the goods (so much for “Priority Mail”)
* Free ride to the top of Snowbird to take pictures (normally $15 or so)
* Visited Antelope Island, an island now without antelope (but it does have bison) we didn’t get close enough to the bison, however
* Stood under Delicate Arch (see a QuickTime VR panorama)
* Almost fell off the side of a cliff at Delicate Arch (crumbling sandstone beneith my feet, slippery ice in another area)
* Saw ancient graffiti from the Anasazi
* While having sushi with Nat, the power went out — but only on the street that the Japanese restaurant, the local bar, and the Marriott were located
* Visited a $1.50 movie theater with Nat, saw Napoleon Dynamite
* On the way back to the car, we saw an odd poster for “Baptists at Our Barbecue“, a local Utah movie about a town that is split between 262 Mormons and 262 Baptists (the poster conveys that much)
* Watched a really cool 3d bug movie (strangely sponsored by Terminix) at an Imax theater
* Went back to the $1.50 movie theater (with Josh this time) to see Shark Tale

I had a fun time, but it’ll be nice to get back home.

Oh, I’ll have to post my pictures soon too. (:

Utah – it’s not that far anymore!

Thursday, December 9th, 2004

Wow. According to Wikipedia, Utah is not that far from Massachusetts. If it’s where they claim it is (according to the map), I could drive to Provo in six and a half hours.

Evidence (in case someone over at Wikipedia notices):

The Beagle logo

Say hello to the Beagle logo:

I made the design based on a sketch by Larry. Trow got the shirts with the logo printed.
