News is now coming out that Google Panda 3.7 has arrived. Google claims:
Less than 1% of queries noticeably affected in the U.S. & 1% worldwide.
I think that statistic is bullshit, and here’s why: only long tail search traffic is being affected. I would bet my bottom dollars that an overwhelming majority of [...]
At 23press, we go out of our way to compliment each other when someone does a good job. I think it’s a big part of making our team feel good and keeping them motivated; I know it’s motivating for me. However, today, after seeing a few BackupPress purchases come in, I found myself [...]
Just a quick note for now: I was searching today for a simple, compiled JSON validator for BackupPress that I could run a JSON file through on the command line. I couldn’t find one, so I threw one together quicly; it’s available on Github:
As you may have read, 23press is going to be building a backup product. As part of this, obviously we’ve been looking at what other companies do; most importantly, we’ve focused on the two biggest players: BackupBuddy and VaultPress.

I have been fascinated with Facebook’s new gallery light box since it launched. The details of it’s implementation confused me for a while, and I knew I had to find the time to re-create it. After putting it off for far too long, last week I realized (with some amount of shock and awe) how [...]

There are a lot of uses for a blog. I like to use mine to post new ideas for projects, or to discuss/propose controversial issues. But today I’m going to use it for the other purpose: venting.
I’ve always been torn about posting code on this site, since I’ve historically (if I can use that word) wanted to keep it about business ideas. However, since I’ve started working for b5media, I’ve had a lot less time to work on my own projects; therefore I think I’ll start talking about some code.
So there it was, the big day. The day I popped the ultimate question and asked my then girlfriend to become my then fiancee (now wife). I was living in San Jose, California, life was good and Ashlyn was coming to visit for a few days where we would enjoy the beach and check out [...]
