I’m re-posting something I shared in XWP‘s internal Slack a couple weeks ago with some minor edits. It’s a good recap of how I felt in deciding to walk away from work and dear friends at the end of 2018. As I unplug from XWP, I’m reminded of the many amazing people I’ve met and […]

I’m reblogging my post from an internal NBCU site here on our website for posterity sake. The 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) just wrapped in chilly Las Vegas and two topics are worth noting: 3D & tablets. On top of those two major highlights you’ll see different form factors, different operating systems, different user […]
