Summary: Student of God, McGoohan, Stoll, McLuhan, Tolkien | web practitioner and member of the Fifth Estate - Mantra: READY, FIRE, AIM! and Truth Matters
You are responsible for your own actions so don't blame me if you do something I suggest or mention. Don't be offended by what I say. Even if you were I'm not sure I'd really care because everyone seems to be offended by everything.
Stuff I say are my own little thoughts that have nothing to do with anyone I may or may not work with or for.
Passions: making minimalist websites for the web (as a whole), writing, user experience, understanding how people use the web, mobile lifestyle, and many other things.
Not passions: mission statements (don't get me started, let's do mantras! and Tom Peters agrees with me so there!), core values (the list of things that a group is bad at), strategic plans (because nothing gets done), and design by committee.
What happened to your personal online presence?
I don't really blog (16 years) anymore. I used to have a LinkedIn account, Facebook account, Twitter account (8 years) and...well, other accounts. Doing things that others are not into is something I love to do. Not for its own sake, it just happens to work that way. But then "everyone else" started doing blogging, tweeting, LinkedIning, Facebooking, and so many other things. It just wasn't fun anymore. I still love making interesting things, like sites. But with so many people all doing the same things it's just become "global masturbation" (Andrew Keen). There's just too much garbage (see Sturgeon's Law) and too many uninteresting people.
For that reason, don't be surprised if you have never heard of me. I'm not someone famous or popular or whatever. I'm just me.
