Most of the time on this blog I'm writing about family or Grace or relationships--you know, life.
But I have another life too, which is ironically where I spend most of my time: work.
I have worked in digital media for 10 years or so and I really do love it. Especially when there is meaning and education behind what you're building and you know it will really help someone. I think my fate was cast when my dad brought home this "laptop" in the late '80s and taught me how to play Space Invaders.
It's amazing to think about Space Invaders, then, compared to where digital media was even just 10 years ago and where it is, now--we've gone from CD-ROMs and zip drives to QR code enhanced ads and clouds. It's hard to stay on top of everything in the industry because the industry changes so quickly. But, frankly, my dear, that's fun! And there are principals to design and content that apply no matter what. I wrote a while back about one of those principals, simplicity, on the Digital Bungalow blog and thought I would share it, here. Of course, Grace stars in it, too.
