This is suddenly my very favorite thing. What is it? It's a collection of morbidly useless things.

Few things go together with such obviousness as geeks and hoodies. True story.

To quote a photographer friend; "Someone once told me my camera took really nice pictures. So I responded that their mouth made really nice compliments."

Seems like a flat value argument to me. There is "enough" of the right kind of value in iReport imagery that the higher standard for delayed or missed-opportunity photographs a proper photojournalist could take isn't as necessary; at least for timely events.

This being said; yet another professional group needs to pull some introspection regarding its value proposition.
Roughly 50 staffers at CNN were given pink slips today, including nearly a dozen photojournalists. In an email to the staff, Senior VP Jack Womack cited the accessibility of cameras and the growth of ...

This. All day long.

(I have NO idea where it's from. If you know, say so, so the genius can get credit.)

Absolutely! I should clarify; I don't know who made the GIF itself.

Did a talk on the business case for Social Media today - and they gave me a mug and THIS! Post-it notes and post-it darts, in a shiny faux-leather case! Snazzy!

I do so love my stationary.

Sometimes, I want to buy common misspellings or alternate tlds of my favorite website's domain addresses - like, say, xkcd.co - and 301 them to the actual site, just to save myself the terror of yet another poker website ad.

Recipe for a win - fancy shows and deadmau5. If I hadn't already made the jump to Android, this might just have been enough for me to buy in.

Loving this - it's just as important for content creators, as it is for visual designers and developers.

Moving below the fold - or, beyond the fold entirely - is a big deal on the web. The fold floats; on mobile devices, it's nowhere near 600px. On larger monitors with progressively higher resolutions, the same applies.

Respecting (not ignoring, but respecting) this variance in displays certainly makes one think differently about content layout - paragraph size, typography, contrast, header design - as well as visual constraints like templates.

Story
Tagline
Copywriter, Online Marketer at Hello Websites
Introduction
Both in my professional and personal lives, I spend the majority of my time helping people better understand web based publishing and communication.

As an online marketer, I taught clients to use the available tools to create awareness of their businesses, and communicate with potential customers at their point of comfort using social media.

As a blogger on my own time, I wrote about blending social sciences, technology, and marketing practices to make communication easier to understand in more contexts, and more effective for those using it for business growth.
