I’ve always been a fan of Creative Commons, and the flexibility its alternative licencing gives content creators like myself who really just want to see their work in front of other people’s eyes. Getting paid is nice, but often I’m simply shooting photos and writing because I like it. Share it. Remix It. Use it.… Continue reading ERRR Magazine Skating Photos
When Graham was two, he and I arranged his Dr. Seuss collection by spectrum – he thought that was pretty cool, and it hung around for a few months. When opportunity came knocking again, we rose to the occasion. The Island of Sodor has never been the same.
Back in late 1997, Gabo Mendoza single handedly changed the course of interactive communication forever when he unleashed Gabocorp.com (archive removed!) upon an unsuspecting design world. Flash had been around for a short time, but nobody had ever built an entire site with it. In fact, I’m not sure anyone had even thought to…except for… Continue reading Found :: My First Flash Movie from 1998
Last Friday I spoke on the social networking panel at the Charleston Green Business Expo. It was part of the Charleston Green Fair, where I also exhibited for Go Green Charleston. I always love having a chance to talk social media with excited people. I like to remind everyone that listening to an audience is… Continue reading Shhhhhh! Don’t Forget to Listen…
Things are still getting back to normal after an inspirational trip to the 2009 SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, TX. I spent 4 amazing days learning, talking, and building relationships with my fellow social media hipster doofus web geeks – oh yeah! I got my photos uploaded to Flickr last night, so I went ahead… Continue reading Photos from 2009 SXSW
The boys and I have been spending our late-afternoon grungy time on Wild Horse Island, the uninhabited plot of land just behind our house on Foster Creek. We’ve been busy mapping the terrain, blasting battle droids, cleaning up trash, and generally having a romping good time. With attractions like the Temple of Vines, Lonely Palm… Continue reading 8 Textures from a Lowcountry Salt Marsh
The parking meters around here are such a drag – all gray and utilitarian…like a grumpy uncle. But the meters in Montréal have flair, and flaunt it even on cloudy days. They are cheery, and literally smile for loonies and toonies.
Ahh, another vintage odd-shaped children’s book – and only 29 cents! I found this morsel in the same stack as my Golden Shape Books, and it’s got a whole different vibe and style. This is probably because it was published in 1970, and was printed in the Netherlands (so how did I end up with… Continue reading Dean and Doreen in The Sports Car
Each March for the last few years, I’ve been throwing down with some of the best designers in amazing PhotoShop battle modeled after the NCAA basketball tournament. I looooooves me some PhotoShop tennis, and adding a format like this makes it extra fine. This happens over in The Arena at Flashkit.com, where the rest of… Continue reading 2008 March Madness :: PhotoShop Bracket
While searching for a particular Dr. Seuss book the other day, I noticed there was a wide range of colors on the bindings. Inspired by chotda’s rainbow bookshelves, I quickly threw the Seussian volumes into their proper ROYGBIV order (I left all the white ones on the right). Not a mind-blowing display, but Coop liked… Continue reading Dr. Seuss Collection Organized by Spectrum
