Last night’s sleep

Last night’s sleep

Data! Lovely lovely data! Gathered by my trial Zeo.

(Zeo is made by the company that hosted the first Boston StartupWeekend, which is where Mike took a shot of this lovely machine!)

Slumber Party

Slumber Party

Joy phoned me on my cellphone at work this week.

"Look at your cellphone."


"Look at your cellphone."


I look at my cellphone. This shot, taken by Joy that morning, was my phone's wallpaper.
