Here's a random sampling of some articles I wrote for my blog. Call it designing with words.
It’s the end of an era. Hotmail is no more. While news of its demise has been known for a long time now, the final nail in the coffin will be hammered in soon. By summertime this year, everyone with @hotmail.com addresses will be the proud owners of new @outlook.com identities!
If a bomb explodes, kills people, and no one is around to report it—would we all still feel “terrorized”?

While many of you were busy counting down the minutes to a four-day weekend, Facebook gave us an Easter gift that’s better than chocolate—a new feature, called Nearby Friends! You’ll never guess what it does. That’s right, Facebook is making it easy for you to know how close your friends are, at all times!

Looks like Facebook has another new ‘feature’ to go alongside the likes of suggested friends, apps or ‘people you may know’—enter ‘rate this place’. Chances are if you’ve checked-in somewhere in the past, Facebook wants to know more. How would you rate that?
