I discussed this function during the lightning round at WordCamp San Diego 2013. add_feed() adds a custom feed to your WordPress site. I discovered this function recently when I needed to create a feed that uses a custom query. Specifically, a client needed a feed that pulled together content in a single category from multiple [...]

Simply put, it’s better to own your main web presence. I was not surprised by the announcement that Posterous will turn off on April 30. Even before they were bought by Twitter a year ago, I was warning people of the danger involved in renting a web presence. If you don’t own it, you don’t [...]
Yesterday, Suzette Franck posted the following to the OC WordPress Facebook group: A German developer named Frank Jonen had a dispute with his client, Fitness SF. He claims that the client did not pay their bill. Frank took his dispute to the web by hijacking Fitnes SF’s website and posted a note complaining (frankly, whining) to the [...]

It’s not really my desire to [...]

When First American Title came to us with the desire to build an iPhone app for their already existing myFirstAm.com web experience, we were excited. And not for the obvious reasons. Too often we have prospective clients who approach us with the desire to simply mimic their website experience in an attempt to have “something” [...]
Zeek Interactive is looking for a Software Tester. This position is located at our office in Huntington Beach, CA.
A few Wordpress highlights from my Twitter surfing over the past week. FYI: I used the Dashter Premium Wordpress Plugin to help me curate the tweets and add my commentary as I stumble on them.
In 2011, I led a Core Conversation to a standing-room only crowd about how to hire and manage a web developer. During that session, we discussed the client’s responsibility when managing a developer. For 2012, I will focus on the responsibilities of the developer. That’s right, developers! It’s time to grow up and start owning [...]
