The mobile theme for this site has been looking pretty bad for a while now. Mainly, lots of things just generally aligned poorly and crashing into each other. I’ve mostly ignored it because, well, I did not design it so there was some learning and tinkering involved in fixing it.
A couple of folks (Ben Brooks and Jered Benoit) generously offered to jump in and help and I was going to accept the offer. Then, in the course of getting them the code a little voice inside my head said, “This is a learning opportunity. You should figure this out yourself.”
So, I did.
It’s not yet perfect and I will likely tweak things a bit more. But, if you visit the site on mobile it should now look 150% better than it did an hour ago. Enjoy!
"As one who strives for mindfulness — especially when dealing with fear — I simply try to remind myself that even the most important choices we make are temporary in the grand scheme of things. Because all things are impermanent."This is a quote from an interview with me in the latest Alpha Efficiency Magazine. I think it turned out well.
I put the word books in quotation marks because the two I’m going to mention are closer to multimedia products than they are books. This is not a bad thing. In fact, I could recommend you check each out just on that fact alone. They both push the boundaries of what our technology allows a book to be these days. But, I digress…
Presentations is the latest in the MacSparky Field Guide series and it’s great. This is, without a doubt, the new go-to guide for everything you need to know to give a great presentation. And, because it uses the very latest technology baked into iBooks to deliver the goods, there are 44 screencasts, audio interviews with Merlin Mann, Les Posen, and Wendy Cherwinski, and much, much more built right in. I have loved all of David Sparks guides so far with each one even better than the last.
Delight Is In The Details by Shawn Blanc recently received a big, big update worth checking out if you did not the first time around. If you are anyone who makes anything that you care about at all, you need this. It delivers practical and actionable advice on how to not just ship but deliver. Plus, the package is packed with hours and hours of audio interviews, videos, and more. Heck, if you do nothing else, at least watch the first video because it full of creative inspiration.
Seriously, the value of both of these books is worth way more than the cost on the cover. Plus, it feels good to support really good guys who have been adding value to our internet community for over a decade. Check them out.
