Paul Kafasis's Now Page

(This page was inspired by an idea from Derek Sivers.)

2018 marks my sixteenth year running Rogue Amoeba, the one-step-above-small Mac software company I co-founded back in 2002. It's hard to believe that it's been that long. We now employ 11 people full-time, selling 7 different audio tools. We're currently focused on shipping updates for Apple's forthcoming MacOS 10.14 (Mojave) release, as well as bigger updates for several of our products.

I'm living in Boston's North End, in a house purchased back at the end of 2014. Ask me about my new windows! I tell everyone I know one thing: “Don't buy a house”. I don't get much joy from owning, and there are plenty of headaches. Nevertheless, I have made this mistake twice. Do as I say, not as I do, I suppose.

2018 hasn't been great for me, as I've had two hospitalizations for bowel obstructions (necessitating one surgery), along with a broken foot (also leading to surgery). However, at present I'm pretty much back at 100%, so that's something. I've gotten back to running, and my pace is still pretty good (sub-7 minute miles), while my distance is slowly increasing. I'm currently considering what races I'll train for and run in the near future. As well, I've hiked 3 of New Hampshire's 48 4000-footers this year, including 2 since recovering from the broken foot. My summer felt like it didn't start until August, but I've since packed as much in as I could.
