My adventures with Ghost blogging platform

TLDR: Just want to create a standard blog to Ghost.org using standard themes and start blogging? Yes, the system is definitely ready for that. Wan’t to use it as you usually use WordPress? Status: medium-raw, with some blood involved. But definitely possible. And it’s getting better day-by-day. This post is exactly about that topic. The […]

How to get and get rid of good startup ideas?

So this morning I had my friend Peppe visiting me for Saturday morning brunch. Peppe said he had recently read about a fashion startup called Fashism (fashism, like fashion, get it?). I remembered some folks I know who were doing something similar in a Garage48 event and a while ago something of the kind raised […]

Here’s a little something of music I’ve been listening the beginning of this year.

Reisikiri New Yorgist

Elasin 2013 aasta sügisel kaks kuud New Yorgis ja kirjutasin sellest Estravellerisse lühikese reisikirjelduse.

Note to self – setting up a new mac

When visiting New York I was asked to buy a Macbook Air for a friend in Estonia. Part of the deal was, that I could play around with it for the 2 weeks when I was in NY until I got back home. Since I wanted the computer to be in mint shape when I […]

Emafirmade isamaa – Eestist startiva startupi seisukohast

Kes luges Sten Tamkivi artikli otsast lõpuni läbi, teab, et Sten kirjutas kõik ära ja tegi seda sealjuures väga hästi. Kui mitte muud, siis minu eesmärk on lisada diskussiooni ka väga varajases staadiumis startupi vaatenurk. See on see hetk, kus Sul on idee, meeskond ja esimene toode ning kodumaa, kus startuppidesse investeeritakse 200 korda vähem […]

Sirbi visioonidokument

Sirp ootab uuendusi. See sai viimastel nädalatel toimunud sündmuste valguses selgemast selgemaks. Isegi need, kellele ei meeldinud liigkiired arengud Sirbi toimetuses, olid nõus sellega, et Sirpi tuleb värskendada.

But before raising any of that sweet, sweet money they give out for free to people with good ideas we have to get some shit done! So – here’s my 2 cents about productivity.
