voet cranf ∞ color synthAxis

Strange name for a wonderful color site. There is nothing like playing with color to really get an understanding of what you are trying to do. Spend some time in the tutorial. This tool is too much fun to not get a good sense of how to fiddle with it.

Bluelime Media: Does your Web Company own you?

This is a discussion I have with almost every business that I build a website for. You wouldn't give the contractor the title to your house would you. So why do people let unscrupulous web designers have the same access? Ignorance and then it gets taken advantage of.

I set up a moodle demo for one of my clients a while back and found it to be a powerful and useful system. As I rebuild my server on my laptop I wonder if this is worth considering again.

Be A More Productive Blogger
It's all about content. I read through my morning selection of blogs and found everything from a soliquay on blogging for funeral directors to serious coding to heavy duty news summaries. Keeping the content flowing is why people visit blogs. The front and center recommendation? Be disciplined.

"The Seven Core Roles of Innovation" from The Intuitive Life Business Blog

I'm captured by the first paragraph of this article. To come back and read it... Well I have it bookmarked and now I've blogged it. But I'm particularly intrigued by a little list and how it applies to an entrpreneur or small business person. And yes - those are different. But the list...

The Web Marketing Checklist

Ralph Wilson has come to the fore as one of the most practical web marketers of all time. With his simple guide to marketing on the web, he provides solid information that is backed by experience and research. Download it by going to his pages. Spend some time looking through his information. It always leaves me wondering if the stuff that he gives away is so good (and it is) what is left to sell.

Poetry Daily: Pimone Triplett, "More Scenes from a Body"

Always interesting. This is one of my daily stops. While I have a number of inspirational emails that drop into my inbox this is one place that I visit that is just inspiring. I read the poetry, say to myself, "This is what I do/" and move on.

If you are interested in more of my poetry you should visit my more personal home on the web. Angus Pratt's Home on the Web.
