this week at Plaid

Here's what happened this week at the world's most awesome design and branding firm:

We got our Chumby!! We broadcast the unboxing on Seesmic. You can see that here. And here. We're experimenting with this really cool device, and playing with possibilities and ideas that might be useful for our clients. We've already got some fun stuff we're thinking about.

Construction continued on our addition. They've made a ton of progress. Insulation and sheetrock this week. And insane hammer tricks. Since construction dudes don't have YouTube, they need something to entertain themselves every once in a while.

Katie, our intern, got to go to her very first video shoot. We were shooting an exercise device, and the model got the workout of her life. Exercise is wonderful until the director asks you to do it over and over and over again. She's stronger because of it.

I've been experimenting and falling in love with Seesmic. Unfortunately, it's not open for public participation yet - but ask your Twitter friends for an invite. I was featured in one of their "SeesmiX" wrap-up clips this week. Awesome.

Lots of shipments arriving daily. A new server, and furniture for our new space is beginning to arrive. Kind of exciting.

We've got some new virtual running mates in our agency's NikePlus challenge. I'm getting my butt kicked by media buying Ben. What an asshat. At least I can still run circles around Giuli, Justus, Rob and Katie. Especially Katie. Think you can kick Ben's ass? Contact Giuli AT ThinkPlaid DOT com, and we'll get you in our next challenge.

I believe we've talked Ryan into entering into the Burton Challenge. If you've ever met Ryan, you know that he's destined to win first prize. More later on this one.

Have a great weekend!
