Robotics Challenge at Geekdom

I spent my weekend with aliens, robots, and middle school kids. No big deal.

Get the scoop on The Rivard Report.

UPDATE FOR YA: Over the past few days, I’ve become an amateur astronomer. It’s true. Kind of. What I mean is that I’ve been covering the transit of Venus, a rare and spectacular cosmic event that took place yesterday in the skies over San Antonio (and other places, too, I guess).

If you’re curious, here are the links to what I’ve been writing for The Rivard Report:

Not Food. Still Awesome.

DISCLAIMER: The link below does not contain a post about food, booze, or restaurants in San Antonio. So don’t get your hopes up for any of those.

It DOES, however, contain a story about something equally as rad: 3 Day Startup, a weekend-long startup tech company boot camp, of sorts. 3DS programs happen all over the place, and the fourth San Antonio 3DS just took place this past weekend at Geekdom, a collaborative workspace in Weston Centre downtown. You can read all about it in my article on The Rivard Report.

If you are feeling cheated by this post not containing anything related to eating, drinking, or dancing, please enjoy the picture below that I took at Geekdom of a bunch of snacks for the 3DS participants. You’re welcome.

Restaurant Gwendolyn on The Rivard Report

Today, I invite you to turn your attention to The Rivard Report, an independent and local online news source for San Antonio that covers a myriad of interesting topics from the center of our city. I had the opportunity to write for The Rivard Report about Restaurant Gwendolyn and the changing gastronomic landscape of SA. Check it out here!
