Friday Vidcast 3-27-09

Today starts the first in what will be a “Friday Vidcast” that i publish each week. It will cover web design, web development, UX, and news and other any other topics that are related. This week I talk about taking yourself to seriously as a designer, developer, or basically in anything you do.

I also give some love to Jimiyo one of the best apparel designers rockin today, and talk about the rad (yes i said rad… I am bringin it back) contest going on over at From The Couch, that I am fortunate enough to be able to run here on TIAL.

On a side note please excuse the temp intro/outro slide I needed one becasue I was making a weird face in the still frame, I am actually working on a nicer one, so this one will hold court while a cook something up. I am Trying out a viddler embed so that you can leave comments during the video (so you can let me know when I am out of my mind) and have more opportunities for interaction.

Thanks again for visiting the site, I love the interaction… so please post comments reply to others comments, and be apart of building community.

  1. I totally agree with you. The most irritating thing some people do is laugh at newbies. We all started out as a newbie and we can’t go pro in 1 second. Help each other with what you do.
    And I like to keep in mind that if you don’t like a design, it might just be a matter of taste.
    Great vid.

      Thanks for taking the time to watch the vid, and comment. I think you are right we all started somewhere, and it can be easy to forget where we came from and get too caught up in “who we are”.

  2. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read all the comments on the Carsonified competition – it actually made me laugh out loud that so many designers where getting so worked up from what was essentially a joke from Paul Boag.

    I won’t mention the designers concerned but I was actually quite disappointed by the attitude of some designers I hold in quite high regard.

    Anyway, you hit the nail on the head – don’t take yourself so seriously! :o)

  3. Nice to put a face and voice to a name. I agree that people got their fundie undies in a bunch over the slide. But I also thought it was kinda hilarious.

  4. rock on man. First I want to say it was good chatting with you last night. I spent at least a good hour on “Minimal Sites” last night, as well as some this morning, and have to say my eyes were very pleased.

    But back on topic, I’m glad to hear what you have to say. And if someone gets their feelings hurt, then so be it. We all need to loosen our belts a little sometimes, myself included, and just laugh at our humanness.

    Thanks for your honesty and ever intriguing topics.
