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 currently employ 10 people full-time, and sell 7 different audio tools. We're working on some major updates to several of our apps, and I'm feeling particularly invigorated about the work of late.

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

Up until very recently (see below), I was running quite a bit. In the past five months, I've set personal bests in the 5K (19:27), half-marathon (1:30:42), and marathon (3:38:02). If you look at that half-marathon time and think my marathon time should've been a lot faster, well, I agree.

In February, I was in the hospital due to a bowel obstruction. You can read about this in depth with this Facebook post, if you like. In short, I'm alive, and getting better. My general prognosis is fine, and my pain is largely gone. I hope my next update won't mention this at all.
