Some teammates were surfing around looking for some inspiration and found an agency website that does some truly incredible work: http://nclud.com Notably are their BeerCamp websites they create: http://2012.beercamp.com, http://2013.beercamp.com – the 2013 website is actually a full on multiplayer game (similar to the original Mario Bros. game on Atari). Very inspirational!!

I started working on my multi-part series deconstructing a Backbone.js single page application. The article is coming along nicely and I’m hoping to have it live before the end of the weekend. (In a related note, my rewrite of the ImGettin.it website using Backbone was a success! I’m not 100% complete, yet, but far enough along that I used it as my inspiration for the article.)
