I don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing that I have little time to blog these days.
HubSpot is definitely on a hockey stick curve, in or entering the steepest part. It’s been really busy, but all good stuff. The new HubSpotters added last month, like Dan, Karen, Adam, and Erin, are impressive. We’re assembling an awesome collection of talented individuals.
Things have been busy at Apache as well. Microsoft’s a sponsor, Tomcat is putting out new releases (though I haven’t put any new code in them myself, I try to test and check stuff), and the Incubator is cranking as always.
This past week SDM, the best program for engineering management education, had its summer business trip, and I helped organized an informal dinner for alumni and current students on Thursday. Sam did most of the work, and he did well. We had a good turnout and a nice mix of old and new.
Local Motors, one of the companies I advise, is doing awesome. Just check out the latest design competition, it’s jaw-dropping.
The night before, Alli and I joined Jeremy and Jeff for a mid-summer BBQ in the rain. Thanks for hosting, Jeremy! Today we’re going to another BBQ, this time at Eric‘s. After that, we’re meeting Ilana and Dan (who are attending the Sox – Yankees game today). Tomorrow we’re hosting a small brunch for a couple of other friends.
And this is a relatively quiet week 😉 But as I always tell myself (and anyone in hearing distance), better to be busy than bored 😉
