I realised recently that I followed so many people on Twitter that I’d actually stopped bothering to keep an eye on my Twitter stream. It’s not that I wasn’t interested in what people had to say (well sometimes I wasn’t) and it’s not that I was too busy (well sometimes I was) it was just the sheer volume of tweets and I couldn’t keep up.
I love having a blog, but I am the first to admit that I’ve not been fantastic at writing posts.
So in an open commitment to my follower (or maybe followers) I’ve written a list of blog posts I am planning on writing over the next few weeks and months.
With 10 years in the industry, of which the latest 3 have been running my own business, I thought it would be useful to put together a list of things that have increased my productivity, motivation and also enabled me to disconnect whilst I am supposed to be relaxing.
Kind of odd that people have to label design: flat, skeuomorphism; can’t design just be design?
I’m sure everyone is as fed up with talk about cookies as I am right now, but “implied consent” does not mean “do nothing”. Yes the ICO have changed their stance on implied consent, but the law hasn’t been abolished and they haven’t done a U-turn.
I’m sure there will be many many blog posts today thanking Steve Jobs for his pure visionary genius.
I personally want to say thank you to Steve for being a daily inspiration. My love of Apple started with the colourful iMacs in 2000, since then I’ve bought an iPod (Click Wheel), iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, iPod Touch, iPhone 2G, iPhone 3GS, MacBook Pro, iPhone 4, won an iPad and the latest addition is an iMac.
I’m sure many of you are aware of Forrst and Dribbble. For those who aren’t, they are in essence community sites based around design and development. Dribbble is focused mainly on designers for web, user interface and user experience whilst Forrst has a wider remit with both designers and developers posting their work.
