Abstract Sequential Stephanie Hobson's abstract thoughts in the sequence she has them.



I’m taking a one year leave of absence from my job at BCIT beginning June 1st, 2012. Right now it kind of feels like I’m doing this because I’m crazy. I’m really doing it because there’s stuff I want to do. I want to build something cool. I want to learn something new. I want […]

Perfect Stranger

Twitter is an amazing tool to catch a glimpse of the collective consciousness. I’ve seen it during the Olympics and I’ve been apart of it at conferences like An Event Apart. Jeremy Keith once said that Twitter was the closest he’d ever come to feeling as though he’s jacked into the Matrix. Most of us […]

I lie to Batman

Note: If you’re following me because you’re a code geek, like I am, and you want only my web design related feed and posts they have their own category now. I was asked the other night who my favourite comic book character is and anyone who knows me would answer without hesitation: Batman. They’d be […]

Why Abstract Sequential?

Short answer: it’s my thinking style :) It means I enjoy theory, logic, precision and abstract thought and that I learn best through lecture, independent research, and following procedures. This means I love web design but makes my blog very, very boring. It’s one of four learning styles as categorized by Dr. Anthony F. Gregorc. […]

Why I follow my heroes on Twitter

A few of the people I follow on Twitter lately have made blog posts or tweets about their followers trying to tell them how to tweet. They’ve all been asked to stop Twittering personal stuff and keep providing free good advice and the response has been, “If you don’t like it, don’t follow.” I just […]

Eight random things

In the spirit of Jeremy Keith’s post, here’s 8 random things I see about me: Black queen carved like Raven. Small brass Buddha. Wind up penguin. iPhone. Microformats pocket cheat sheet. Salt. 8.5 x 11 print out of the gMail “mvelope”. Label from a Christmas present: “To Steph Love, Joel, Jim & Mrs. A.” You’re […]

We made the cut!

One of the videos we made the other day made the cut into the final Gmail behind the scenes video.  Alistair‘s fancy editing shows the three of us morphing between chin up bars with 1:37 left to go. A second video of ours was chosen as a featured clip. If you got to the page […]

10 seconds of my 15 minutes

Google is having this contesty thingy. Which basically requires you to make 10 second (or less) videos of how gMail gets around the world. The idea is for people to get the “Mvelope” from the left to the right side of the screen. Yesterday after work Alistair filmed videos with my and Kenzie’s help, three […]

Good Habits

Last night I purchased and then stayed up until 2:00 playing Civilization IV. When I finally tore myself away from the game and went to bed I resigned myself to being late for work today. Today I got to work 20 minutes early. I think the lesson hear is quite clear. I need to do […]
