  1. Introducing Carrington Build

    Over the last few years I’ve loved building a team and creating great things for our clients, but I’ve missed building products. A little more than a year ago, we started work on a system that I’ve had in the back of my mind for (quite literally) years. This work has resulted our first commercial…

  3. Crowd Favorite is Hiring: Sr. Developer

    I’m looking for a sharp web developer to join my team in our Denver office at Crowd Favorite. I want to find someone with a relatively, broad range of experience and skills – if you’ve been building cool stuff for the last few years, you’ve probably got it. We are looking for the right technical,…

  5. Interviewed on WP Community Podcast

    I was interviewed on the WP Community podcast by hosts Joost De Valk and Frederick Townes. We covered a number of topics – hopefully the content is of interest (and sorry about the ads). You can stream or download the podcast here.

  6. WordCamp Boulder

    The tickets for WordCamp Boulder 2010 went on sale today. The discounted early bird tickets have been flying off the shelves – it’s great to see such an enthusiastic response from our local tech community. I wanted to publish a quick Q & A to answer a few things I’ve seen circling around: What is…

  7. Exclude File Type Requests

    We’ve released a new WordPress plugin to help reduce the server load that can occasionally result from a large number of 404 requests on a WordPress-powered site. I wrote about this issue in some detail previously. This plugin gives you the ability to set a collection of file extensions that you do not want WordPress…

  8. New Crowd Favorite Website

    It’s true in any profession: everyone will look at your own (insert specialty here) and assume it’s representative of the best of your work. More often, the opposite is true – especially if you’re good at what you do. The cobbler’s children go barefoot. This was definitely the case for us. The previous iteration of…

  9. Twitter Tools 2.3

    I’ve updated my Twitter Tools plugin to version 2.3. This version has several security enhancements (thanks Mark Jaquith) as well as a change that may help some folks that have been seeing doubled digest posts. I recommend upgrading ASAP. The Twitter Tools plugin creates a full integration between your WordPress site and your Twitter account.…

  10. WordPress HelpCenter Support Packages

    One of the things I love about WordPress HelpCenter is the way we are able to add offerings based on customer demand. Our latest addition is a formalization of a collection of support and maintenance packages so that we can provide pro-active support for our customers. With these packages, we are not only responding to…

  11. More GameTonight Metros

    I’ve added a few more metro areas that were requested for GameTonight: Chicago Cincinnati (also available at /cincy) Los Angeles (also available at /la) Washington DC (also available at /dc) I hadn’t added Chicago initially because the venues for the various teams are not as close to each other as they are in Denver, Minneapolis,…

  12. Is there a Game Tonight?

    A few months ago, while driving in to downtown Denver: Her: Should we take the Park Ave exit or 20th st? Me: I don’t know, is there a game tonight? Her: I don’t know. Me: Hmm, there should be a web site for that… …and now there is. Introducing GameTonight.in, a single serving web site…

  13. WordPress HelpCenter Plugin Updated

    I released a new version of our WordPress HelpCenter plugin last week in order to update information in it to reflect our expanded hours. I realized that this might cause some concern for any of our affiliates. One of the things we offer to our affiliates is a customized version of the HelpCenter plugin that…
