WordCamp Food Trucks

27 April 2017

After helping organize nine WordCamps, I’ve made just about all the mistakes. Hopefully I’ve learned from each of them. Recently an organizer of an upcoming WordCamp asked me my thoughts on using food trucks to feed WordCampers. The pro is that you get a nice variety of foods to choose from. Much better and much more fun than the grab-n-go sandwich boxes you’ll find at a lot of camps. (I’m not knocking the grab-n-go option. All options have their pros and cons.) The con is that the lines can back up if food truck logistics are planned poorly. Long lines can…

Improving Productivity

25 September 2015

This post supplements a presentation originally delivered at WordCamp Los Angeles 2015. Most folks have to work to make a living, which is totally fine. Many of us have chosen to work in the WordPress world because if we have to work, we want to work on something we enjoy with people we like. In doing so many of us have become freelancers and entrepreneurs. This makes us responsible for our own time, and time is a precious and limited resource. Let’s not waste work time working. Waste time somewhere awesome. Most of what I have learned regarding being more productive is either through friends or reading articles. I…

The Story of Me

5 March 2015

Last Christmas my wonderful wife gave me a National Geographic DNA kit. (On our trip to Morocco, one of our travel companions had completed this process and I was fascinated.) Today my results came in. For the most part, if you know me, the results are not too surprising – lots of northern European action. But there are two points that are interesting. One, I am 18% southwest Asian, which any number other than zero would have shocked me. Two, I am 2.8% Neanderthal. Most people have somewhere between 1% and 4% Neaderthal DNA, and the average person has 2.1%.…

WordCamp Ventura County 2014 Recap

10 November 2014

I remember when Konstantin first starting talking about putting on a WordCamp Ventura County he mentioned that his vision was for a more intimate, more developer-centric camp. He and the organization team delivered, big time. Coffee in swag is the best coffee #wcvc A photo posted by Jeff Zinn (@jeffreyzinn) on Nov 11, 2014 at 9:16am PST The venue at Green Art People set the tone for the whole event. Right away, it was clear that this camp was going to be an exchange of ideas amongst friends and not a formal classroom which put the whole event at ease. Imagine participating in a…

Ideal El Porto

21 January 2011

Well, the water could have been warmer, but otherwise setting were perfect.  The water was clear and glassy.  There was just enough breeze blowing off the shore to throw a little mist off the crest of the wave.  The crowds were low by El Porto standards.  And the waves, oh the waves.  They rolled in the chest-to-head high range.  And If you picked off the right one, it’d peel all the way to shore.  The Sausage performed beautifully (though I didn’t really do it justice today).  Josh, CW, Mike and I all seemed to have a good productive session. I…

The Sausage Is Back

18 January 2011

Big waves on order this week.  I went back up to Harbour to borrow the Sausage again.  Man, I dig that board.  I need to get one of my own.  Although I am tempted to try getting it in a quad set up.  Anyway, big beautiful waves at the Sunset Jetty today.  Long peely rights for the taking.  And I took.  It was very similar to that foggy day in December at Bolsa Chica.  It’s supposed to be even bigger tomorrow.
