After five years I’m sorry to announce that I’ve decided to remove Farmanc from Apple’s app store. It’s been nearly three years since the last update and in that time iOS has gone from iOS 6 (with skeuomorphic visual design) to iOS 9 (flat design). The app now looks and feels out of place in the operating system and amongst the other apps.
Another year has come and gone faster than I imagined. As I reflect, there were many more good memories than bad. Most significant of all was marrying my wonderful wife. The rest, however, makes for a good list in any year: a new job at Kiva, the launch of Farmanac – my first iPhone app, a trip to Bali, three visits to British Columbia, and a great year of skiing in Tahoe and surfing at Ocean Beach. With so much of our attention constantly focused forward it’s great to take a minute and look back. Here is a brief recap of my 2011.
