This website is both its own milestone, more than 3 years in the making, and the marker of a new beginning.

The 10k mission is now a real organization, with a real leader in @OpeolaBukola@twitter.com, and a real plan.

New gear check, thanks to @MidiZooreetah@twitter.com and @OpeolaBukola@twitter.com 😍

Shipping something tomorrow that I’ve been working on since late 2018. 👀

As part of prep for a major and much needed bathroom renovation, we temporarily converted our bathtub into a shower.

We needed a temp shower curtain, of course.

My wife picked this one. Of note, neither of us smoke weed, but her go-to karaoke song IS Gin and Juice.

Hmmmmmm I wonder if it’s time for a sequel to the audiobook that @adamteterus@twitter.com and I created about how the @indyhall@twitter.com community formed before we opened our first space. theindyhallway.com/ten/

It's wild, and honestly still a bit scary, to think about how close to the brink @indyhall@twitter.com was just 6 months ago.

Trying to compile my thoughts on how we managed to survive that long, and how much we’ve rebuilt in the last 6 months.

From my sparkfile daily shuffle, todays message is a doozy:

“Ignorance is allergic to exposure.”

It's wild to me that 2 years later we still sell copies basically every day, and that we do it without any juice from Amazon.

But THANK YOU to the thousands of people who’ve bought my tiny book, read it, shared it, kept it nearby on your desk or in your backpack, and written in to share how it helped you.

I def had no idea how far the book would go, but so glad it continues to reach new readers 🙏
