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 […]

A Dull April Fool’s Day

There was a rash of black and white April Fool’s Day sites this year. We weren’t the only ones to do it but I think we did it best, if I do say so myself. There were three parts to our little switch and it wouldn’t have been the same without any of them: Desaturating […]

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 […]

Making the switch

Macs have always struck me as more of a religion than an operating system. A family friend and I have a long history of a friendly Mac vs Windows rivalry. He’s the Mac evangelist and I was, well, I wasn’t a Windows evangelist but I guess I played the part of a disbeliever. At some […]

@media: Day One

One day I’d like to be able to make the same kind of contribution to the web design world that these speakers have. Trying to find a way to do that is as intimidating as the idea of writing a Master’s thesis. How does one come up with new ideas? The speakers have all been […]

Working hard?

Or hardly working? When the network goes down the whole department starts acting like school kids when the power goes out.  We sit around waiting for the power to come back on or the teachers to tell us to go home and the longer it’s out the more trouble we contemplate causing ;)

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 […]
