Incorporation Day: 1/11/11.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — ifindkarma @ 7:11 pm

This morning I woke up thinking about true happiness.

True happiness involves the pursuit of worthy goals, Csikszentmihalyi said:

“Without dreams, without risks,
only a trivial semblance of living
can be achieved.”

In other words, the spice must FLOW!

So today, 1/11/11, at 11:11am, Troutgirl and I are incorporating PandaWhale.

That’s right. It goes to eleven.

What is PandaWhale doing?

We at 106 Miles want to bring our cocktail party online.

PandaWhale is writing the software to make that happen.

Our mantras at PandaWhale are simple:

1. Love HTTP(S).
2. Trust HTTP(S).
3. Save the Web!

To learn about saving the Web, see Tim Berners-Lee.

We want to do our part to Save the Web by organizing public conversations among the members the 106 Miles community, so that our conversations are searchable, lurkable, and transactable across the Web.

Meanwhile… back to work!


P.S. — If I don’t answer your email, it’s because I’m busy. Please keep pinging me if it’s important. Thank you!

And till we ship, you can join 106 Miles on Meetup.

We will ship as soon as we can.

PandaWhale, fuck yeah!

Feel free to sing along…



  1. Thanks for the wisdom as always, Adam. And your passion is contagious, no matter the subject. : )
