Wake Boarding and Skiing at Lake Roosevelt

Our family has been going up to Lake Roosevelt near Spokane, WA for years.  Holly grew up on this lake and her family has a cabin there.  We have a million wonderful memories from this lake and plan to have a million more!

Our son Six has really gotten into wakeboarding so we decided to by this boat.  It is a Mastercraft X10 and we love it (so far).

The boat kicks up a killer surf wake.  Here is a video of our little grommet shredding Lake Roosevelt.

I’m Joining CrowdFlower’s Board

I was asked to join CrowdFlower‘s Board of Directors this week – and gladly accepted.  I did so for the following reasons:

  • I really understand the space.  Jigsaw was one of the original crowdsourcing business models.
  • I really like CrowdFlower’s model and market leadership.  I think this company is going to do great things.
  • I really like CrowdFlower’s Founder and CEO, Lukas Biewald.  He is an incredibly visionary guy.  I plan to learn a lot from him and his talented team.
