Yes, we’re selling the infamous Red Couch, among other things, at a garage sale that starts tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. at our house. 14414 86th PL NE Bothell, WA 98011.

This couch is infamous cause it was used on stage at Gnomedex last year and has had famous and interesting people like David Allen sitting on it.

Yeah, I guess I should list this on Edgeio which is the cool way for bloggers to sell their stuff.

Oh, and feel free to drop by. Patrick is selling Lemonade and Cookies.


Calling all dead programmers and unemployed videobloggers: Off the Grid Camp starts August 6

Hey, we love deadprogrammers and unemployedvideobloggers (great name for a blog, by the way, anyone have a better one?). But, plans are progressing for a campout that I’m calling “OffTheGrid” at my mom’s house (near Chico Hot Springs in Montana).

The details? You’re welcome. We still have some floor space to put up more people (beds are all gone, sorry). It’ll be August 6 through 9th. If you’re interested in coming, please send me email.

There’s camping and lodging nearby (I’d recommend staying at Chico Hot Springs, we’ll definitely have several sessions over there).

Purpose? Get off the grid for a while and do something creative together. Hike. Swim. Fish. That kind of thing.

Dave Winer says he’s coming. We have several families coming. It’s an open invite. Anyone can come. We’ll do some geeky stuff too, but maybe that’ll include using GPS’s and doing a treasure hunt or something like that.

Update: Matt Griffith says the area is stunning and wishes he could come and there’s a ton of Geocaches in the area.

Now I can get on with the rest of my life…

Charles Torre, of Channel 9, interviewed me and Patrick on my last day in the office.

Did I really pick my nose on camera?

But, seriously, we talk about the risks of corporate blogging, Mini-Microsoft, why many corporations can’t blog or do something like Channel 9, among a whole lot of things, and then we read the questions off of Microsoft’s real exit interview.
