About a year ago I began talking with Juan about an idea to simplify website publishing. It seemed so obvious that the most comfortable, intuitive and practical means for sharing digital content such as text, images, etc. was email. Everyone has email and knows how to use it, so why not build a site/service that makes use of your email client as a publishing tool... as usual, we were too busy or too lazy or just too distracted to pursue this concept, but luckily someone else wasn't, enter Posterous.
All I can say is that I am glad these guys had similar ideas, because their execution is just plain awesome. It's simple and clean, elegant and expandable, intuitive and collaborative... like I said, awesome.
Anyway, I considered redirecting this domain to my Posterous feed, but I think I will wait until they allow some more customizations to the interface, for now I will be (hopefully) making more regular updates on my Posterous feeds:
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and setup your feed too, it's that easy.

We recently put together a little experiment around the 2008 U.S. presidential election. The overall idea is to communicate how significant the impact of these aliens is to our economy and country as a whole. While we are showing immediate stats, we don't plan on announcing the results until at least November 5. We could really use a hand spreading the word, so if you have a chance, Digg Aliens Vote.

Summer wrap-up / San Francisco, CA / 58 months ago
I'll try to keep this short for the 15-20 of you that read these now quarterly updates.
Our son Ben was born on July 23 here in SF. He's been a lot of fun to date and seems to be a pretty easy baby compared to some stories I have heard from others. I have a lot of photos and video that I haven't found the time to process, but I will get them up over at flickr as soon as I do.
We haven't traveled at all this summer except for regular visits to the country house for a little suburban relaxation. That all changes next week when Juan and I are off to Brazil to speak in Sao Paulo and Rio. The engagement is a conference for marketing and advertising design, as far as I can tell. Our talk is called "The Juanderful World of Cuban Council" and is basically an overview of the company and our work to date.
