@pstinnett mind if I ask how much that’s setting you back? # Wants to know who from The Deck is actually using Microsoft Expression Suite on purpose? # At best putting prosciutto and pea pizza on the menu but actually having seafood pizza is poor usability. At worst, a cruel cruel joke. # @bridgetstewart it’s […]

LA Ink: Season 2 Episode 3

Thursday, January 31st, 2008

The theme of the episode is Kat’s dramatized self-intervention. She gets wasted, says something to upset her boyfriend and decides to stop drinking. Hmm, probably a good idea since her party antics got her fired from Miami Ink, and it appears she doesn’t have much involvement managing her own shop. The last thing I ever […]

Wishing I would have gone to bed earlier. # Finds it funny that several of my students chose Godaddy.com for their examples of bad UI. # @antiheroine digging around the tag "inspiration" on del.icio.us or looking for design examples on Flickr. #

Regrettably Back From Vacation

Tuesday, January 29th, 2008

We had a really good and much needed trip, though I think next time I’d prefer to drive rather than fly. Priceline doesn’t honor your seat selections, so Alana and I were seated apart on most of our flights. Someone was nice enough to switch with us on our last flight so we could sit […]

is home from vacation and suspecting it will be months before I see the sun again. # Realized twitter posts in my feed are mucking up the CWSA feed. Anyone know how to exclude a category from your RSS feed in WordPress? # @msjen agreed. My girlfriend has AT&T and can get a signal just […]

@aoirthoir @bridgetstewart can’t get to my email but Mondays aren’t good for me I have class. Friday actually works best. # @brilliantcrank enjoying a Gloria y Cubana at this very moment. # is at mall. Because you know I couldn’t go to one of these back at home. #

never use priceline for plane tickets if you’d like your seat selection honored. Strange elbows in my rib FTW. #

On Vacation

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

There won’t be much posting for the next week, as I’ll be on vacation and trying to avoid the internet. There may be a few intermittent tweets. Suggestions for things to do in West Palm Beach are welcome, though I’ll mostly be lounging by the pool. Enjoy the 11 degree Ohio weather.

@bcullen I’ve done two jobs with Jak Prints and had mostly great (& cheap) experiences. But absolutely DO get real proofs and not digital. # @aoirthoir you are just full of ideas! # @nathansmith I wish my primary machine at the office was Mac so I could use TextMate. Presently stuck with Dreamweaver. # The […]

LA Ink: Season 2 Episode 2

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

The previews for this show frame it in such a way to suggest a lot of drama will happen each episode. But this is almost entirely gimmick, and very little actually happens. It took until the end of the episode before Kat decided to “lay down the law” with Pixie after being a big passive […]

@bridgetstewart I worked for someone who used to work there, and I saw some exec of theirs speak at a NEOUPA event. # @jaredigital we are doing a keynote pizza party # twitter stop eating my tweets! @bcolbow is it still the old site for you when you log in? # keynote: not impressed. # […]

Beards and Dogs

Monday, January 14th, 2008

This was a busy weekend. We had visitors from out of town (you can see Bill getting some love from Harper to the left. Our dogs love beards) a belated family Christmas, and freelance work. Thursday I found out I was going to be teaching a class at Tri-C on beginning web publishing, so I’ve […]

Project direction: when you give this, it’s generally a good idea not to be vague. # So this whole writing a syllabus and course schedule thing, it’s uhh hard. # Time to take a break, beer and a movie! # contemplating a nap before tackling an obscene amount of work, but it’s so nice out! […]

Friday Link Roundup: Cheeseburger Edition

Friday, January 11th, 2008

If you can’t afford an Eames chair, perhaps you can afford some stamps. Every web person has worked someplace where a non-web savvy boss has said “I am right, the entire industry is wrong.” Is Shepard Fairey of Obey Giant fame a plagiarist? I haven’t formed a definitive opinion yet, but I do believe if […]

What happens to an interface when there’s too many cooks in the kitchen. Let’s face it, when you work in house everyone on a project has an agenda. Marketing, tech, ad sales, everyone has their own set of demands they want met. This is why I believe any site with a lot of stakeholders absolutely […]

LA Ink: Season 2 Episode 1

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

What’s up with the creepy new title credits that sound like the movie Seven? Kat talks a lot of shit about running a business, but she ran off and left Cory in charge. How can she expect her “employees” to take her seriously when she takes off whenever she wants? Secondly, the artists themselves are […]

Not much to post today, I’ve been too busy to stick to a normal writing schedule, but here’s a picture I snapped of Harper last night with my iPhone. Normally if she comes to sit beside me it’s to bite my fingers or lick my pants or something, so this was a rare moment of […]

Something tells me it’s a pretty big deal Joshua Davis (Flash pioneer!) moved his entire site from Flash to WordPress.

I just saw the new Mac Pro, DO WANT. I can’t believe this thing supports up to 4tb storage and 32gb of RAM!
