Working as part of the CTCT's social media focused team, I work on creating applications to help small businesses with their social media needs. Typical applications are Ruby on Rails in front of Java services. Also using Backbone.js to provide a richer client side experience.

I’ve spent the past 6ish months building an Android app with Matt. The first version’s out in the wild, and it seemed about time to write up a few things we’ve learned … and, of course, weigh in on the never-ending Android-versus-iPhone debate.
Wow, developing for Android sounds terrible.
Nothing about this makes me think it would be wise to go Android first (or Android at all).
At best, you cut support for tons of devices and at worst, you’re adding hacks for one-off hardware vendor changes.
"El Paso" Scene in Breaking Bad plus the rest of it.
When Stephen Colbert talked to Vince Gilligan about the song El Paso used in the season finale of Breaking Bad, he asked if Felina was Jesse or the blue meth, and Vince basically said Felina was the blue meth.. Viewed that way, the song El Paso matches up with not only the scene it was used in and the season finale, but the entire series. So I put the rest of it before and after the actual scene from the finale.
