Changes for some notable bloggers

In the last couple of days there have been 3 very notable bloggers and members of the industry who are making wholesale changes in their work and in their lives. Last year around this time, Jason Kottke made a move from his fulltime job to become a fulltime blogger. A year later he reminisces about […]

Behold the release of Campfire

Alas, 37Signals has released their latest product, Campfire. It’s an online group chat application. I participated in some of their testing last week. I wasn’t overwhelmed but I will give it more of shot than that. I think we’ll take it for a test-drive over the next couple of days and see if it adds […]

I think of Joshua Davis, of dreamless.org, once-upon-a-forest.com, Kioken, and praystation fame (no wonder why he had celebrity, he was pretty damn prolific). Gosh there are so many others (Mike Cina, […]

Casual Fridays

To me, casual Friday makes no sense. If the idea of a dress code is to create a formal workplace or to give off a “professional” look, why are Fridays exempt? Or rather, why are people not required to be “professional” of Fridays? Dress codes are not what I have a problem with, I understand […]
