Devin Reams wearing a teal shirt in front of a teal sign that says 'trouble'

Howdy! I’m Devin. I’m sensibly impulsive, consistently non-committal, and passionately impartial. I’m a technologist living in Denver, Colorado.

Untapped Launches iPhone, Android Apps

Congrats to the team over at Untappd for launching their native iPhone and Android apps last week. I’ve been beta testing for a bit and this is a much improved experience over the mobile browser experience. It’s much faster, allows photo uploads, and has a handy “notifications” center. If you like beer and haven’t heard of Untappd, these guys have become the de facto standard for “checking in” to your drinks. It’s been really fun to explore new tastes and discover what types I like.

The Monktoberfest

I’m headed to Portland (Maine aka “real Portland”) this week for what I believe will be the underrated technology (and beer!) conference of the year. Kudos to Steve et al for pulling together what I’m sure will be a great time. We have a big “todo” list but Let me know if there’s anything worth seeing out there.

Denver Post prints partial quote, Councilwoman provides full context via blog

I just love that my councilwoman, Judy Montero, has her own blog (on WordPress). Not only that, but she can respond to an article published in the Denver Post which printed only part of her prepared statement that lacks the full context of her response. Not that the news hasn’t been doing this “fit the quote so it fits our story” game forever, but now the public can easily see the other side.

The Wedding Reception

Shortly following our ceremony at the Denver Botanic Gardens we went to MCA Denver to celebrate on the rooftop. Drinks, dancing, and fun times were had. While some folks did wander about the museum, it’s still not clear to many what “contemporary art” really is.

The Wedding Ceremony

Rachel and I were married on July 16, 2011 at the Denver Botanic Gardens. It was a semi-small ceremony with 75 family members and a handful of close friends.

Share Buttons? Ha.

As soon as I saw Facebook’s new “Ticker” (a.k.a. Facebook within Facebook) I wondered if Facebook was smart enough to “surface” the right stories to me. MG Siegler at TechCrunch:


If you missed this a couple of months ago: a very cool and very well edited short video from around the world. Thanks, Linnet.
