I am still alive

I can’t believe the last post here is from May 2008. That’s quite a while.

So what have I been doing all the time? First off I got my first open source project going – Wildflower. It’s my vision of what a web CMS should look like, although that vision has and is changing along the way. I am really happy how it turned out, especially the responses from the community. People build sites with it and I really enjoy comments saying that it’s the most rapid to develop with CMS.

Of course, I’ve been busy with client work. Done some nice projects like Clever Twist, SunMaid Site, Picture Window Productions. All powered by Wildflower. I’ve also fucked some things up and learned how to really disappoint a client. These are as worthy lessons as the successes in my book.

That’s it for now, time to cook some launch.

Update

When you leave your blog not-so-very-updated for some time you’ll start to notice some bad things. Traffic slowly declines and the more you don’t post the lazier you are to write something new. But I don’t want to talk about that.

I made quite a big decision lately – I left the college (willingly). My main reason was that I was, with time, more and more interested and occupied by my freelance career. It escalated to such a point that I had to make a decision. Stay in the school or left and fully concentrate on my business. I chose the later. There was no reason for me to stay – I was simply bored in school. There was very little useful knowledge that I was gaining there. Our programming classes, the only ones that I enjoyed at least a bit, became a joke in the 3rd semester. But I don’t regret my time spent there. I met a lot of great people and learned something too.

I am quite excited. Finally I can concentrate on things that I really enjoy doing. I am confident that this is the right way for me to go, but, well, time will tell.

More Than Fest 2006

MTF 2006 Tomorrow I am leaving for More Than Fest at Ružiná, Slovakia. This will probably be the biggest metal meeting to date in this country. It will be crazy 🙂 Maybe I will make some photos with my ultra great cell phone camera. I will be there for three nights, we will sleep in a tent. Hope the weather will not disappoint us.

Regarding the bands, I am looking forward to Gamma Ray and Behemoth. I saw Gamma Ray 3 times to date and I always had a great time. Behemoth is currently one of the best known Poland metal bands. I hope we will see why.
