Limping & Wheeling Through Denver, and Back to Boston

As I mentioned in my last blog, I arrived in Denver a few weeks ago, just a few days fresh from ankle surgery in Boston. After a pleasant journey and flight with United Airlines, and gate to taxi wheelchair service from the kind folks at Denver International Airport, and after a pleasant ride with an Ethiopian taxi driver who told me about the best Ethiopian restaurant in Denver (Nile Ethiopian Restaurant, in Aurora), I arrived at the Embassy Suites, Denver Tech Center (DTC) in Centennial, CO.

Limping & Wheeling Through Boston Logan and Denver International Airports

The sad truth is that, even in this day and age, it’s hard for disabled people to travel.

I recently had ankle surgery to stimulate tissue regrowth in an 8mm “hole” in my ankle (talus chondroplasty), where bone and cartilage should have been.

Yes it’s true, Google not only wants to be the be-all-end-all of outdoor wayfinding, but indoor as well. Which actually could turn in to an extremely lucrative source of revenue for the company.

Reflections on Concur’s Perfect Trip DevCon

It was tripchi’s pleasure to have participated, and pitched, in the inaugural Concur PerfectTrip DevCom 2013.

It was not only a great networking opportunity, but also a great learning opportunity. I learned about many of the intricacies of the Concur API, so that when we’re ready to apply for the App Store, there won’t be any “gotchas.” I also met many of the Concur dev support team, so that I now know who to go to for help in case I have questions.

It’s something I do a lot of thinking about, especially this strange yet trendy thing called “growth hacking.” As if marketers were feeling left out of the developer nerd-circle, so we needed have a form of hacking associated with us too.
