Relentless Optimism

If I had to list out my core values of work (which I did recently have to do), they comprise of things like the following:

Learning Technology, In One Act

Me: I should really get back to learning VueJS, I haven’t built anything in a while.

Workshop: Leadership Through Visibility

I love writing. It’s not very evident from the lack of posting on this particular blog, but I write a lot, mostly by hand and mostly in a giant journal that is designed to look like the Handbook for the Recently Deceased from Beetlejuice (hey I got it in a game of white elephant a few years ago, the gift that keeps on giving).

Finding My Creative Voice

A quiet revolution has taken place in my office.

The Dark Mirror: We Are Our Technology

Technology spins a tight web with our social structures—technology is born from systems and social structures already in place, enhances them and strengthens them. It is not the technology itself that creates a system, it is us.

Ethics in Web Development

My friend is currently at a state-required class to keep his professional license. The class is called Ethics in the Modern World. He’s a massage therapist.

The Profession-alism of The Web Industry

Remember when we were just “web masters”? When only nerds used computers for anything other then work or typing up a book report?

Lest We Forget: An Ode to the Border Radius

Border radius seems like such a simple, obvious CSS property. But can we all take a moment and pour one out for that time we had to create tiny images and place them all around a container?

Why Can't That Be Me

It’s funny, the stories we tell ourselves about who we are. These stories seem to a mix of family stories (you’ve always been the smart/dumb/slow/fast one), stories of people we identify with (if she can do it, so can I), and stories from our peers.

I removed pagination, because it's time to let old things die.
