Behind 9rules Introduction

Written by Scrivs on May 21, 2007

When you are involved in something you often don’t realize that other people may be curious as to what is going on behind the scenes or how things actually work. With 9rules being a unique company in that there are 3 of us working at any given time during the day in three different states, I’m sure our method of work is really different than others. Because of this we thought it would be cool to start a series that gives you a look at how we work.

Mainly it will be me just talking about what has been going on and telling some stories because Mike and Tyme get camera shy (and do more work than me so they are busy). I plan on doing the series mostly in video format because it just works out better for me so I hope everyone enjoys it.

For now let me tell you what happened today:

  1. Tyme played video games for 9r research.
  2. Mike set a new IM record for most idle time.
  3. I wondered why one line of php code differed so greatly from another when the looked exactly the same for about 5 hours.

The series will go into a bit more detail than that, so take it as a quickie. I would also love to get the 9@9 podcast going again so maybe we can work some magic on that front as well.

Scrivs Interview in .Net Magazine

Written by Scrivs on May 1, 2007

In this month’s edition of .net Magazine I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Oliver Lindberg. This was my first time being interviewed in a major magazine and the first time 9rules has gotten a bit of offline press like this. So if you live in the UK be sure to go steal you a copy (or buy one). Granted the interview was conducted a couple months ago so some of the answers have changed slightly, but nonetheless at least you get a disgustingly close up picture of me to hang up on your wall.

The US edition comes out in 6 weeks so all the Yankees will have to sit patient.
