This year seems to be packed with anniversaries. Not only did I move to Seattle 20 years ago, but a decade ago I began writing & posting photos on Line of Sight. This week marks my tenth year blogging!

business: designing for android

Endless Mile, Android app

Despite owning several Apple products, I decided to experiment & bought a second-generation Nexus 7 tablet last September. In about two months I became a fan… much more so than with any Apple product. Phenomenal screen resolution, truly light weight, crisp & clean design plus amazing adaptability won me over. The more I used the tablet, the more I realized how fantastic Endless Mile guides would look as an app.

business: 2013 review

Endless Mile

What’s that? No blog update in over a year about Endless Mile? Exactly where did the time go? Brief announcements are made regularly via Facebook, but this seems to be a better format to review all that’s happened in 2013… what a year!

business: e-book development

Kindle Fire, Endless Mile, screen capture

“Excited” best described my mood when the Kindle Fire became available one year ago. Amazon’s affordable alternative to Apple, the device even enjoyed good (although not great) early reviews. Was it set to compete with the iPad, especially at a below-profit price? Didn’t matter much to me. The KF was the first tablet connected to a big e-book provider, & I couldn’t wait to see how it performed.

Endless Mile: Lisbon, Azulejos guide

Last week Endless Mile released its latest guide… breaking away from Buenos Aires & now covering Lisbon! Discover 75 of the city’s best azulejos (tile panels) with this new, map-based PDF. Although tilework is such a striking feature of Lisbon, no one had developed a guide like this before. It wasn’t easy… publishing this release was a wild ride.

business: what’s in a name

Robert Wright, cobblestones, Buenos Aires

When Jeff & I began bouncing ideas around for a new type of travel guide, one of our most difficult decisions was finding an appropriate name. How to take into account this desire to explore a city on foot, combine influences from Baudelaire & Benjamin about the flâneur & apply it to destinations as diverse as Buenos Aires & Lisbon?

business: 2012 releases

Endless Mile, 2012 projects

With Buenos Aires content finally finished, it’s time to expand our guidebook offers. I could happily write about BA for the rest of my life, but Europe is calling. 2012 is all about Portugal with a bit of Spain too. Darío & I are off to Europe in a few weeks, & there’s no better moment to decide exactly what to research & publish.
