You haven’t heard a peep from me in awhile, but I’ve got some major news to share. After 4.5 awesome years at Dubberly Design Office, I’ve decided to leave my job. In two weeks, I’m headed down to a little internet start-up called [Google]cheap viagra uk6. I’ll be working on the visual and interaction design […]

Rails Bootcamp Diary: Day 4

Fri, 24 Sep 2010 07:04:08 +0000

I just got done with day four of Rails Bootcamp, and I’m exhausted. But Rails is so cool, it makes up for the drain and pain. [Sarah Allen][20] also continues to impress with her teaching acumen.

Rails Bootcamp Diary: Day 3

Thu, 23 Sep 2010 07:21:25 +0000

Today, my furrowed brows relaxed into “ah ha” smiles. After two days of challenging Ruby concepts, we’re now in the wonderful world of Rails. Our instructor for this section, Sarah Allen, is also really bringing it on. What works Context and the big picture For me, it’s vital to understand the big picture when learning […]

Rails Bootcamp Diary: Day 2

Wed, 22 Sep 2010 06:24:49 +0000

Ok, I get why this class is called a “bootcamp”. I just finished day two of my Ruby on Rails class, and I’m officially mindfrakked. Today’s class moved at a rapid pace and covered a wealth of topics including: Blocks and yielding Procs and Lambdas Enumerators method_missing Regular expressions File input/output I absorbed only about […]

Rails Bootcamp Diary: Day 1

Tue, 21 Sep 2010 07:16:17 +0000

I’ve just completed my first day of an intensive Ruby on Rails bootcamp. No, I didn’t get to wear a uniform, don macho combat boots, or get yelled at by angry drill sergeants. But I do get to fumble around in a shell terminal, which is just about as painful (and I suppose kinda sexy, […]

On Writing: Keep it short and sweet

Need examples of witty writing with few words? Check out The Listings in The New York Times’ Weekend Arts section. You’ll find some succinctly superb snippets under Long-Running Shows. Here are my favorites from last Friday: Billy Elliot The Musical Ballet dreams in coal country Mamma Mia The jukebox musical set to the disco throb […]

Having trouble pre-ordering your iPhone 4? Use the Apple Store app instead

Tue, 15 Jun 2010 19:58:48 +0000

I’ve been trying to order an iPhone 4 since 1am this morning. But AT&T’s crappy networks and Safari’s session expirations were preventing me from getting closer to My Precious. Thankfully, the new Apple Store app on the iPhone worked like a breeze. It took me two minutes to pre-order. Give it a try. After you […]

Does your portfolio have to be fancy?

Wed, 19 May 2010 13:00:30 +0000

On June 5th, I’m reviewing portfolios for AIGA SF Portfolio Day. While I love talking to students, I’m already dreading one thing: the “fancy” portfolio. By fancy, I mean a hardbound book with embossed lettering, ultra expensive paper, and precious unreadable typography. Or maybe it’ll be encased in a large metal box with tricky clasps […]

Don’t check your work email at home

Sat, 08 May 2010 01:50:42 +0000

Four years ago, I started forwarding my work email to my personal email account. The reason? One inbox for all email is easier to manage. It’ll my make life simpler, right? Not. Turns out, all it did was stress me out at home and on the weekends. There’s always an annoying email about a problem […]

When to quit your job

Thu, 06 May 2010 13:00:17 +0000

When you’ve stopped learning on the job, it’s time to quit. After looking at all the jobs I’ve had, I realized one thing: when I stopped learning, I became much more keenly aware of other job factors like salary, office space, and vacation time. Boredom makes it way easier to obsess about money and perks. […]
