Life It was my birthday. Mostly just been working and working out, did try and explore a bit more of Santiago though. And then headed to Easter Island, which is exciting. My first pacific island! Continuing to explore Choose Me May and it is really making a difference in my life! I love that some of my friends are ...

The Number 30

I have mostly been trying not to think about how I'm turning 30 this year, but actually it turns out the amount of upheaval I have put myself through lately is often a function of being in a year ending with a 9. People search for meaning, apparently. And that has certainly been true of me. When ...

Life Not really liking Santiago that much, so decided to cut things short and head to Easter Island which sounds very cool, albeit a bit lacking in Internet. Met up with someone here which was cool, did a bit of touristing, spent an afternoon getting some needed pampering at the spa, but otherwise I've just been ...

Malta, March 2015

IMG_8743

In between conferences I decided I needed some sunshine and R&R. I ended up in Malta with my mom, which was not particularly sunshiny... or relaxing. But it was definitely interesting. First, the greatest public transport experience of all time - there was an owl on the bus. Other than that, Malta is in a strategic location at ...

Life Last week in Bogota, so I took a couple of days to do some final exploring, and then caught a flight to Santiago. Bit wrung out after the previous week, which was Intense and ended with a breakup. Trying to be kind to myself and just go to the gym when I want to cry... although ...

Creative Solitude

Danbo Phelps

Before I  left for South America I kept being asked "aren't you going to be lonely" like loneliness is some terrible thing to be avoided at all costs. Since I've been here, people have been commenting "you seem to be very productive" and it's true. I have been. I say, "I'm embracing a kind of creative solitude." And ...

This Week

Danbo @ Work

Life One of those weeks where I think about the phrase "you can have it all... just not at the same time." Maybe you can't even have it all that close together. I'm finding this time in South America really useful - I feel far away from tech industry bullshit, but I'm in a convenient timezone to ...

Amsterdam, March 2015

I was in Amsterdam very briefly for mdevcon, which was great - I gave a workshop and a talk in two days so I didn't feel like I got to experience much of the conference, but I did meet some lovely people and they treated the speakers really well. Including picking me up at the airport ...

Life In Bogota! Adjusting to life here - joined a gym (which has fingerprint authentication! And a fighting cage!) and I've been exploring my neighbourhood. Generally being a bit of a hermit after running around for all of March, which has been great. Work Pretty much finished my iOS unit testing workshop! One last person is taking a ...
