Hi Chris Messina

my google analytics showed a spike of visitors the last couple of days, specifically on friday. It seems my post on the new safari tools has caught the eye of someone important, as it looks like Chris Messina posted it to the Ma.gnolia.com web dev blogs group.

To mangle a quote by Ron Burgandy, “i dont know if you know this, but he’s kinda a big deal”.

Chris is an open-source advocate, and is largely responsible for the mozilla based browser, Flock (even though he no longer works there). Actually, i found THIS list of stuff he’s done, and considering he’s only 2 years older than me, i have some serious catching up to do.

But yeah, Chris likes my blog. I get the feeling that Chris is a humble web-pseudo-celebrity and will probably call me out on this, but hey, if he’s reading my blog, i think that’s awesome. Thanks for the traffic. Leave me a comment or something, let me know what you think, i’d love to talk shop.

This will help make sure you can find the most useful resources. I respect your privacy & email. Absolutely no spam, and I won't ever share your data. Pinky promise! 🤞

Hey, thanks for reading!

Alex Hillman I am always thinking about the intersection of people, relationships, trust and business. I founded Indy Hall in 2006, making us one of oldest fully independent coworking communities in the world. This site is packed with the lessons and examples I’ve learned along the way. You can find me on Twitter, too! 🐦 Say hi.
