Speaking of the Grammy-winning, Bon Iver, a friend sent me this YouTube video of a gorgeous 24-minute set at AIR Studios. It doesn’t get any better than this. Such a simple concept–piano and vocals with some electronic sounds interspersed. Really, just amazing. One of the most beautiful performances I’ve ever heard.

Not sure why they limited the artists to Sharpies and no paint, but it was interesting to see the complex caricatures developed and threaded together along the paper “wall.” I love graffiti, so [...]
Recently, I launched a new job search. In this search, I am attempting to use social media to a. crowd-source an opportunity, and b. display my enthusiasm for brands or companies I might like to work for. There is one specific organization I am very interested in that just announced they are hiring. Given my [...]
When I’m not toiling away in OmniGraffle, creating site maps, wireframes, and associated product documentation, you can find me creating DJ mixes using the digital audio workstation, Ableton Live. Before I got involved in building and managing really cool web products, I was [...]
