Procrastination – It’s Your Death

ProcrastinationSo I noticed that all the red flags I had amassed on my emails as I tried to clear things out for Halloween fun tonight. It seems I have prioritized myself into a corner. O.K., the reality is that I procrastinated myself into a corner. Frankly, I forgot to follow my own Zombie Zen advice.

So procrastination has been the death of me and now I will be risen from the dead and go back to practicing my Zombie Zen and clear out some of these red flags and get on the ball for creating new blogs, responding to emails, advancing projects, and well pretty much the other stuff I kept pushing off to get the quick hits that weren’t of enough value done.

Will you remember to do the Zombie Zen or just procrastinate to death?

We’re moving into a transitional work space so that we can better leverage our collective resources and create time lines, focused strategies, SEO campaigns, social campaigns, data harvesting, vetting of several proofs of concepts, and so forth.

A lot of the concepts I’ve been talking about through out this blog are concepts that have been proofed in our metaphorical labs at 42wd Publishing.

I digress though. You probably would like to know what 42wd Publishing is first.

Zombies Do It RightSlobbering, drooling, shambling, mostly dead, single minded purposes – no, I’m not talking about your last date. I’m talking about zombies. These unthinking creatures of inspiration know what they’re doing. Zombies do it right.

Sounds silly, or disgusting if you’re a zombie hater [don’t hate the zombie hate the brains], but zombies really do have it straight – and this is why.

Bad Apple – A Tale of Steve Jobs the Evil and Cowardly Apple

Evil AppleNormally I try to keep my ichor and ire towards the unfriendly like business practices between the big boys of the computer world. After all, in the end, I still have to design for them regardless of my opinion. Yet, every so often there comes such a cowardly and evil action perpetrated by one of the big boys that I just can’t keep my mouth shut.

O.K., many people that know me would say I can’t keep my mouth shut anyway but I’m still gonna rant about just how cowardly and evil Steve Jobs and his precious Apple patents are being. And before I get accused of being with one faction or the other I belong to the “Right Tool for the Right Project” faction. In other words, I use them all when I need to use them.

If you’ve been following any of the number of technology sites you’ll have seen the huge number of lawsuits that Apple has filed against Android usage devices in general, in this instance specifically HTC.

Basically this is what happened:
