I was awoken by a really loud alarm this morning and a loud knock on the door. I was going to stay in bed and shrug it off, but I remembered the fire-alarm test already happened this semester so I opened the door to see what was going on. Somebody told me that there actually was a fire so after throwing on pants and debating whether taking my laptop and Tool tickets was necessary, I reluctantly went out into the morning air. It turns out the building connected to ours had an extension cord wrapped around a couch leg that cought on fire. Three fire-trucks showed up (despite the fact that only one fire extinguisher was used) and we had to wait 1/2 hour before going back. I happened to have my camera in my pants from the night before so I snapped some shots. It wasn’t too bad, but it messed up my sleep schedule and I was forced to miss my first two classes. Its ok though, with classes ending on Tuesday, there is not much material left to learn. After the Tool concert, I am going into super-study-mode until my last final on the 17th.

Oh yeah… Tom and I found out that my goldfish (Crack, Snapple and Pot) cannot sense when a laser is being pointed at them so it is pretty entertaining to shine it on them and watch them glow like christmas lights.


My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for the web, iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), and MacOS out of New York City. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. In 2019, I joined the team at Ticket Evolution as a Senior Software Engineer. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley and a MBA from Quantic. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our dog Hamachi. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
