Ink hit paper Friday and now I finally have an apartment in New York City. I’ve been here for a few months and have looked, and looked for an apartment. It’s not an easy task. There were trials and tribulations along the way, but I finally found a place I really like. It’s in Carroll Gardens in Brooklyn, which was my first choice due to the proximity to a) the Subway b) my friends c) the great neighborhood near by.
It’s a one bedroom, not huge but not tiny either, and I have a small office where I can keep my computer. I move in May 1st (after it gets new paint, doors, windows, etc) at which point I’ll post up some pictures. After I’m in, expect blog posts to become much more frequent.

I created the Flash elements on the site and built the back-end custom content management system on which the site runs. All the hilarious and genius copy was written by the always cheery Duane and the videos were produced by the MF video guys.
The site has recently won RBJ’s Best of the Web award. I’m very happy for MSM and very proud to have been part of the team that created the site. Go check it out today, it’s really fun. I wish you could see the admin system as well since, in my humble opinion, it’s pretty bad ass.Permalink
It might be brief, and not actually about us, but our Managing Editor Ron Lieber had some air time last night on NBC as a segment on the ubiquity and potential negatives of gift cards around the holidays. FiLife was mentioned insomuch as a subhead under his name.
I’m sure there’ll be more press as we head toward open beta and eventual public launch of the site. Check out FiLife.com for more (I work there now).Permalink
