So here it is, my tale of three braves which unfolded at WDS 2014.Read More

February 2014 has been quite the month - it's included my first trip to the tropics in well over a decade, immediately followed by a short trip to the equally beautiful Washington Coast, and has been filled to the brim with lots of thinking about the future.Read More
So here's the deal, I'm fortunate enough to not depend on this site for income. I have a full time job which pays the bills including those to keep this site going and improving. That being said I have bigger dreams. Much bigger dreams.Read More
Just a little reminder before we get in to my last Alt Summit post!
Yes, it's true. Fantastic people do attend Alt Summit and sadly, I only met a tiny snippet of them. Going in, like I mentioned in my experience post, I was concerned I wouldn't connect with anyone as I'm not really a designer.
