It was about a year ago

esktop Refresh St. Louis kicked off on 6/6/05, the first Monday in June, 2005. That was exactly 364 days ago.

For those that don’t know, desktop refresh basically amounted to me living on the seventh floor of the Bevo building (the giant Budweiser building in St. Louis). I think I even spent a night there once because I was there so late and I had to meet up with Andrea the next day.

Anyways, one day as I Andrea and I were sitting up there we were just talking in general and she asked me what my dream job was. I told her I’d love to have a job working with audio equipment.

Lo and behold, a year later, look at what I’m doing.

I have a lot of great memories from St. Louis. Very few of them occured in June or August of 2005.
