Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


What Designers do for Fun

This morning's surfing landed me at the Designologue. Officially,

A designologue is a conversation between two designers in the medium they understand best - design. Comparisons can be made to Coudal's Photoshop Tennis where two designers alternately modify the others image using Photoshop.

But instead of one designer versus another, the two converse. No winners. No losers. Just good conversation.

and the cool part is that the conversation is public, so those of us who wish we knew how to do such things can participate vicariously.

Select a DSNLG (yes, much shorter) to view (I liked this one), either by clicking a thumbnail (what is it about a slice of an image that is so appealing? it's a great shape for thumbnails in this case) or selecting from the drop-down on the front page. Now you can follow the progression of images and the commentary that goes along with them. It's a very attractive interface, and I suspect it was a lot of fun to code :-)

This would have been enough fun all by itself, but from here I discovered Threadless. There is simply no reason to ever wear a lame t-shirt again. I want this one!

Now I have to go find out what Coudal Photoshop Tennis is. The Coudal Partners Fresh Signals feed is already in my FeedDemon list....
