Reflecting on 2010

This has been a Big Year for me. In 2010 I:

  1. Got married.
  2. Moved from San Francisco to Portland, Oregon.
  3. Quit my job at Twitter.
  4. Joined BankSimple.
  5. Helped BankSimple raise our $2.9M Series A funding.
  6. Organized the first Emerging Languages Camp, which was successful enough that it’s going to become a regular part of OSCON.
  7. Bought a house in Portland’s West Hills and moved into it.

In 2011 I will:

  1. Ship BankSimple.

That’s it. Anything else I accomplish next year is gravy.
