Sending an iPhone into Space… or at least 1312 feet closer to Space

November 10, 2008

I met Michael Koppelman a million years ago in the Bitstream offices discussing hosting rates for a ridiculous online dating service project I was on (the client eventually chose Protocom across the river). He came off as not so much of a nerd. He’d worked with some pretty cool bands and the vibe at Bitstream made me not want to leave.

Turns out, Michael Koppelman is a nerd — of the highest caliber. He’s into astronomy, iPhone programming and model rocketry. Dan Grigsby interviews him on his latest launch over at in T-Minus ten, nine, eight, seven…


Mad Libs: Just like 6th grade all over again

I’m hopelessly addicted to green tea.I held my breath for 2’03″53 (got a new watch) this morning before I got out of bed.

I do believe this is the first time in my life that I’ve ever cracked two minutes. It’s nice to know how much time I’ll have to settle my affairs if I’m ever trapped on a sinking ship. It’s a real load off the ol’ mind. How long can you hold your breath?
