The portrait-oriented, single column design approach that’s become so dominant since the advent of smart phones can only last for so long. The new paradigm of wearables, particularly visors/glasses, will see us return to landscape designs. Augmented reality will enable a screen of any size and format to appear in a multitude of contexts. The […]
It’s no wonder the machine (however you want to define that, the powers that be, the man, our corporate overlords) is mining our data. It’s always mining something: iron, gold, oil, electricity (although the more elegant term for that is harvesting) – it’s just incredible how much data we produce and how easy it is […]

We used to play this all the time growing up. I don’t see kids playing it anymore. Other sports are easy to get pickup going. You can play one-on-one hoops. 2-hand-touch only really needs 4 players.

WordPress is great place for writers. But what about for artists? Are your needs fulfilled by the built in tools WP provides, or do you rely on plugins to present your images the way you want them to look? Is there a theme that works best for you, or does it lack certain features? Are […]
How do we prove we are the owners of our content? It’s trickier than you might think.
People who debate about whether or not this or that pizza is the best in the world are missing the point. Pizza is all about context. It’s different in different places because it needs to be. It reflects the unique lifestyle of a particular area. Here’s how I see the two styles I’m most familiar […]

In the beginning, format was king. The mere fact that we were reading something on the web made it important. It had somehow come to occupy this new medium, which in itself was novel and beautiful and confusing. Whoever put it there had to be smart, and therefore the content as well. Then, at some […]
I don’t even know what that is I read something about a 20 million dollar loss Whose loss? How does one even lose 20 mill? I spend the next 20 minutes looking for a new car In the classifieds, and land on one like new Kelly green Olds, only 40k and just inspected I call […]

It enhances learning. If I can teach you how to do something, it means I have learned it myself. There are other ways to […]
Liking the Sharpie Pen on tracing paper
