Here's a random sampling of some articles I wrote for my blog. Call it designing with words.
Remember when you had to be home at a certain time to watch your favourite TV show? Not anymore! The freedom is great, right? Well, not always. Thanks to social media, your friends can wreck everything—but it’s not just them. Now the shows themselves can do much worse.
In the last few years we’ve seen many social networks appear, only to crash and burn. Think of MySpace, Ping, Friendster—even Google+ (seriously, it’s dead). The one that seems to always stick around is Facebook. With over 1 billion users, it’s definitely the social network that all the cool kids are using these days. But what do kids actually think of Facebook? Is it cool? You might think so, but you could be wrong.
Seriously, the majority of posts I see these days pale in comparison to the comments section, which is way more entertaining than the article itself! Right?
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!
If a bomb explodes, kills people, and no one is around to report it—would we all still feel “terrorized”?
Think about it for a second. If we weren’t constantly bombarded by over the top, sensationalized news reports, or heat of the moment posts on social media, would the world be such a terror-able place?
I’m sorry, it’s over. It’s not me, it’s you—rather your content. It’s boring, unimaginative, long-winded, and makes no sense. What are you even trying to say? I have “the talk” with websites every day. I get wooed by a catchy title, but it’s a complete let down once I start reading. Sound familiar?
