Working Hard

Monday, August 8, 2005 posted by Michael Lehenbauer

Life at the Creek has been kind of crazy lately. The summer is almost over and we’ve been working hard to address the feedback we’ve been getting from the private beta while also trying to get the service into a releasable state. I’ve finally finished all of the payment processing stuff for the website and as Ben mentioned, we’ve just given the application a bit of a facelift. It’s looking pretty slick.

We’re not the only ones who have been working hard though. With the end of the summer approaching, Lerone is running out of time too. Yesterday he filmed Tyler and I running through Central Park and I think today he did some sort of cockroach reenactment with Yaron and Ben...

Speaking of the documentary, I’ve heard some people voice doubts that a documentary about software development could be all that interesting... But I think you’ll be surprised to find out about the crazy stuff that go on. Fortunately, Lerone’s been here to catch them on film. See for yourself.  This is a shot of me hanging out of the window the other day:

Keep in mind that this is just ONE FRAME of the documentary! So take the awesomeness of this and multiply it by about 100,000 and you’ll have an idea of how great the entire film will be.

Okay. All seriousness aside, I think Lerrone’s been doing a great job and I’m looking forward to seeing the final result. If you’re in the New York area and interested in seeing one of his other films, you should check out the theatrical premiere of No Child Left Behind on September 25th. Sadly, I’ll be three weeks into my fall quarter by then and won’t be able to attend. :-(
