Here's a random sampling of some articles I wrote for my blog. Call it designing with words.
TV as we know it, is over. The formula that worked for years, works no more. The same way MP3s “killed” the music industry, modern technology, high speed internet, and companies like Netflix have “killed” TV. Now we binge!
Wow. Fox News just finished the renovations to their newsroom. The most notable addition to the “news deck” is all of their new BATs—big area touchscreens—that you can see littering the background.

When tragedy strikes, the news is where people used to turn for the latest and greatest—until the Internet. Then along came social media. This is the new News. Isn’t being hyper-connected great? What’s better than reality television than actual real television? Sadly, both can be equally as fake.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock the last few days, you’ve seen the latest video to go viral, Look Up. Since its debut on April 25, the film aimed at getting people to unplug from social media and actually talk to each other has created quite a buzz online, with over 18 million hits so far.

Looks like the big headline this week comes from Yahoo, where new CEO Marissa Mayer decided that to save the sinking ship she’s now in charge of, she’s putting her foot down on employees working from home.
