“Hardest part of my day is when Allan takes only Benji out in the morning for a walk and I don’t have my Samantha bouncing back in the house rushing over to give me my morning greeting as I’m having my coffee. It has only been 4 days but it seems like ‘forever’.

“The Boxee Box holds a special place in our heart as the first device we built. It was the first living room device to have a keyboard on the back of the remote. It was also the first XBMC-based set top box to be sold at major retailers.

This one time, when I was working at an ad agency, I was asked to do some thought work for the Karen Polito campaign. I didn’t want to but it was my job. I presented a slogan to the Polito team that read “Holy Toledo! It’s Karen Polito!”. I was asked to leave the room and then I designed the restaurant menus for The Irish Pub. Young and dumb and a whole lot of fun.
