Snappy Title Goes Here

Friday afternoons we flee the office and find fun and food somewhere within walking distance of our downtown SLO office with an abundance of atmosphere (and alcohol). Last week we finally flipped the lid to a Kickstarter game that had been staring at us from the shelf for months – Snaption. It’s a game of captions for snapshots where you …

Stuck in the Gutter

Every now and then a kind soul makes the mistake of thinking we know how to conduct ourselves outside of the office. Thankfully, every now and then, we actually surprise ourselves by doing just that.

Though he first intended to plot the images on a map, Brandon realized the brief conversations he was having with New York’s residents …

A Journey Through Middle-Earth

I am a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I have read both of them multiple times and am currently reading The Hobbit to my 7 year old daughter… Tolkien did write it as a children’s book after all.

I find there ends up being more of everything like buildings, people, signs and vehicles as time goes on, but sometimes that’s not the case. A New Way to View History   Well, I stumbled upon …
