Well, not at the same time. Not together. They’re not both… you know what I mean. I’m excited to announce that Ben and Allison are expecting a baby! I learned about the news a little while ago, but have been on radio silence ever since. As of last night, looking over Twitter and Facebook… it appears that the news is…

A little while after we arrived, Chris and Leslie showed up with a third guest: a freaking awesome piñata they had picked up. Justin and Chris. chatting over some delicious guacamole and mangos (brought by Chris). Allison and Leslie, in the shadow of…

Magic Icelandic: Ben and Allison’s Honeymoon Video

This is an awesome video slideshow that captures Ben and Allison’s honeymoon in Iceland. This was somewhere Allison had visited before, but the first time for Ben. Shutterbugs that they are, they both took a ton of great photographs. Allison and I traveled counter-clockwise around the island on the ring road, starting in Reykjavík on March 26, 2010. We saw…

Ben and Allison Get Married

Before the guests arrived for Ben and Allison’s wedding, folks gathered at Jane’s in Bucktown for some photos. Stu (who also photographed my wedding) flew in to do all the photography. All the kids, being asked to make some silly faces for the camera. A view of the flowers along the bar, before the evening gets underway. Ben and Allison…

Goodbye, Matt Miner

After two years working with us, we’re saying goodbye to Matt Miner. Matt’s case is a special one: though he’s been with us a long while, he was originally brought on as a temporary hire (via another company, Sogeti). He was, for all intents and purposes, brought on at the start as a hired gun. But he soon proved himself…

Dinner at Justin’s: Homemade Indian Food + Gifts from Japan

Prior to the holidays, Justin sent out a dinner invite to a few of us. He’d been hard at work re-arranging his apartment, and the dinner was a way to celebrate his “new” place and the new year. Justin rushed home right after work, and by the time many of us showed up (circa 7:30 PM), he was already in…

Good Bye Bryan, Good Luck Peabe

With great sadness, this is something I’ve known for a while now… and something that many of us knew at work: Bryan is saying goodbye to Emmis Interactive, and heading out to the West Coast. He’s going out there with Jamie, and will be pursuing his artistic career full-time. While it pains me to see him go, there’s this rightness…

Battleship Torpedo Attack

Allison recently got a version of Battleship that I’ve never seen before – one where each side comes complete with a periscope that shoots torpedoes (tiny black marbles) under water, at the ships.

Emmis Interactive Holiday Party: Wild Hare, Wrigleyville

Since our department moved out into its own office, our holiday celebrations have also separated themselves some from the stations. In the past, us Interactive folks would celebrate along with the stations; but we’d also have our own gatherings and dinners. It’s wild to think about, but about 5 years ago now… I sat down at a table with all…

Everybody… meet Allison!

Joining us in Chicago, Allison hails from Austin – where she’s been working as one of our webmasters, tending to several stations down there. It was cool to officially meet her for the first time, when we were in Mexico. She arrived in town a day or so ago, and has found a place in Wicker Park (right near the…
