Site Redesign

Sep
28

I have had several clients recently approach me about redesign. Simple stuff. Sites have a certain fashion cachet and they want to keep up. The iPhone and smartphones are taking over the world and sites need to refect that they will be seen in the small screen.

Is there anything I can do to reduce costs?

Sep
17

I'd like to hear your ideas for reducing costs, so I know if there's something I can do at my end to make the process smoother/less time consuming. Also, I can look at whether time/money would be better spent on bumping up another feature/area of the site.

In terms of cost reduction there are several measures that can be taken:

Junior Achievement, Volunteering and I

Sep
15

Junior Achievement provides young people with insight into business. It does it a number of different ways. My favorite and a program that I have volunteered for for the last umpteen years is their "Stay in School" program, now called "Economics of Success". Geared to middle school students in that prime "Gonna drop out" age band. It shows them what is going to happen from a budget perspective if they do.

It’s humbling that I could be killed by 3.2kbytes of genetic data. Then again, with 850 Mbytes of data in my genome, there’s bound to be an exploit or two.

Slow food movement comes to photos

So I'm rambling through my daily blogs and I come across a reference to Noticings .
Curious I think. I wonder what that is. And I click. And I'm launched into an incredibly simple site based on a game. And noticing the world around us. As the site says it is a wrapper for Flickr. A really simple way of getting people to look at the world around them. By assigning points (though that part isn't clear) people are encouraged to look and photograph the world around them.

25 Great Cheatsheats

Sep
04

I know it seems weird that someone who does webdesign would use cheatsheets but I do it all the time. Part of my wiki reference holds all these great one line codes or definitions that I use once or twice a month. I can't exactly remember the syntax of them. So this was a great find.

I thought for a moment that there wasn't going to be a Drupal one but there is and it is great.
