Can't find that comment option on Vox? I can fix that! Let me invite you to join Vox...
The Starter level is a streamlined Vox experience that includes member profile, all "neighborhood" features including contacts, friends, and family, as well as the ability to comment on any Vox blog.
The Standard level is a Vox experience that includes blog posting, blog design, and collecting and organizing audio, video, photos, and books. It's the level that most current Vox members are familiar with. [I'm out of invites for these right now.]
You need to be at least a Starter to comment on a Vox blog so leave me a comment and I'll send you a Starter invite.
[some words borrowed from Sooz]
Update: If you sign up for a Starter now, you get to have your name of choice reserved, so this is a good idea if you are attached to your particular nickname..
Congrats to the Movable Type team for all of the work that's gone into this beta. It's a nice looking product. You now can have tags! And much more!
I'm looking forward to switching to it because I've grown attached to tags since they were added to LiveJournal.
Six Apart has a new blogging service. It's pretty damn neat too. It's called "Vox".
You can see my Vox blog. Family gets first dibs on the 2 invites I have, but feel free to pipe up if you like what you see over there and I'll post info about who gets 'em.
Tomorrow morning (I'm waking up before 0h Dark Thirty), I'm heading to California to meet my co-workers at SixApart. Flying is not my most favorite thing to do. A 6+ hour flight? Ew. But hopefully the visit will make up for all of that airplane time.
I might try to see Statia if I have any free time (more likely I'll try to get her to visit me because I won't have any way to get around).
Anyway, see some of you soon. :)
Update: I upgraded to Economy Plus for $50! More comfy sleeping for me.
It's interesting, this working from home stuff. It's helped me discover that I actually am more social than I realized. My co-workers don't get on IM until midday so I don't have any co-workers around to talk to for a good chunk of my day. Weird.
Happily I do have other people to randomly chat with so that helps with the isolation but I do feel the isolation a lot some days.
For those of you that have not heard Lisa Holsberg (formerly known as Lisa Wilson) is leaving [where I work]. She is moving back east to be closer to her family and her lovely niece. Lisa has been with the web team for over 7 years and has participated in two site re-platformings and several redesigns. Through this she has performed countless builds and become an expert in site content, organization and operation. Lisa gave notice in late July, but was gracious enough to extend her employment 4 weeks in order to complete coding of her final re-design project. Her last day at [where I work] will be September 6th. Please join me in thanking her for her many contributions and wishing her well in her new adventure.
I think they're gonna miss me. Hell, I know they're gonna miss me. But it's always nice to hear about it.
So today is the first interview for someone to take over my job. I don't like interviews, regardless of which side of the table I'm on. Our candidate seems like he is solidly technical so we have to see how he does with the project management side of things.
Anyway, I'm a technical project lead (not quite a manager (thank goodness) for a company in Centennial (used to be Englewood), CO. My primary responsibilities are project management related with technical stuff running a close second. If you want to see the actual job description, leave a comment and I'll email you the info.
Kind of scary/exciting to think about, but my move is right around the corner. :) I have to get serious about packing again but it shouldn't be a problem.
11 days of work
17 more days in Colorado
Time to get a Pepsi and be heads down now.
