Seattle, Grist, Philippines

After a lovely weekend in New York I headed straight to Seattle, but not because of the Microsoft announcement like many people thought, but to attend a meeting for Grist, an environmental non-profit (with a sense of humor) whose board of directors I just joined. In addition to being a great organization to be involved with that has funny but important coverage, I hope to learn a lot more about the non-profit world and apply it to the WordPress Foundation. Tonight I leave for the Philippines where I’ll attend and speak at a WordCamp in Manila. I’m looking forward to the end of the year when things slow down.

  1. Wow! This is really great news. I’m also interested working for non-profit organizations, though am not that popular LOL. But its really nice to hear that influential people are doing this things. Keep it up!

  2. Grist is a very good site, though I think their major redesign caused some significant problems. Most notably, I don’t like how it is impossible to scroll back through old posts. Once you leave the front page, you just get a giant messy tag cloud.

  3. I am so glad you came here in my lovely country. I am sure you already know what does it mean by Filipino hospitality by now…

    Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
