We are now in San Francisco. I have been much worse at updating this blog then I intended, but from now on I won't apologize about that and just post when I can :-).
We are now in the YScraper, it's a pretty crazy place, the view is amazing, this is what I wake up to every morning (that picture doesn't do it justice the panorama is stunning).
I am living on the 12th floor with a couple of guys from the Disqus team. There are also 2 other teams from my Y Combinator batch alone on this floor and I think 4 others from previous Y Combinator batches in the building. We haven't had a chance to hang out much since its only been a couple of days but the atmosphere in here is very friendly and fun.
We (as in clickpass) are just trying to settle into a rhythm and get some work done. We have another 3 months of intense work ahead, should be launched in a couple of months max. Back in the UK after that probably till after Christmas, I apologize to all those people that I didn't get a chance to meet up with while I was in the UK, 1 week is really not very long.
I have had a lot of thoughts about what to blog about but I haven't had time. Right now whats on my mind is how much my body is hurting! I went to the gym yesterday after almost a year of no weight lifting and every muscle in my body is aching! It's a pretty interesting feeling, I am sure all the weight lifters out there know exactly what I mean.
I write in the same way I talk and think. This blog post has bits of it in it which are similar to the way Peter (my cofounder) talks, which is a bit annoying, but spending so long with him means that I start absorbing some of his talking style. I don't think I got a Chinese accent from Tony (my previous cofounder), hehe.
I also recently got an Iphone (not sure if I mentioned that previously) but the prices dropped by $200 today, which is pretty annoying. Also I hacked the phone slightly, and today there was a software update which broke everything and i had to do a hard restore. For me the Iphone has been pretty disappointing in many ways; the battery life is awful, the internet is too slow and the apps are too limited. It is however very cool.
I am going to try to start some cool stuff while I am in San Francisco. I have some ideas but I will let you know how it shapes up. I can say a lot and say nothing at all, its an art really :-).
