Through most of 2020, we have been in upheaval and lockdown at the same time. Staying home more, probably wearing sweatpants more, and fretting less about work/life balance and more about life/work balance. It is why I spent a bunch of time last year thinking of how...

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is impacting people everywhere. Some are out of jobs, others furloughed or reduced in hours. Thank goodness for people working in healthcare, public service, delivery and grocery at this time. But hit, and hit hard, is a group of folks we...

good/cheap/fast… pick two

I don’t know where the phrase first originated, but this has been one of a few mantra (mantras, mantri?) I feel like I am always saying over and over to anyone that will listen. It is of paramount importance to designers. My grandfather had a Rolex watch. At...

Since about this time last year I’ve been keeping a diary of sorts. So high school. It has been a collection of thoughts about the evolution of my life in my 40s. It is not all good, but not all bad, either. It is mostly embarrassing. My “Train of...

Until this summer, my kids went to school year-round. They never had a “summer vacation”. And, additionally, neither did their parents. This has severely messed me up. I work for myself, largely from home. This means that during the school year, I am up at...

Hey Siri, where are my shoes?

I’m fascinated by people that don’t know anything. Ok, perhaps not anything, but simple things. Like, “How do you get there?” I don’t know about you, but there’s this nifty new invention they call a map. “Where do I get...
All over again?

All over again?

Diablo III was released in May of 2012. I played it a bit after launch, but lost interest. Reaper of Souls, the expansion, was released nearly two years later. It vastly improved the game, and I played a bunch more, including the Crusader class. But I fell out with it...
