Plugging 42wd Publishing

42wd Publishing LogoSo I have this jobby that I’m doing. It’s a digital publishing company called 42wd Publishing. I’m not going to go into all the details here as we’re [me and my cohorts] are working on launching a big social info campaign very soon and it’ll have a lot of that info in it.

So here’s my shameless plug – click on the logo to get over to Google+ and throw me into one of your circles. This is my personal account but I’m putting out info about 42wd Publishing until Google+ kicks off its business pages. Once 42wd Publishing gets its own business page it’ll be pure 42wd Publishing. I’ll keep talking about my personal experiences during this experience on my personal Google+ account.

The main purpose of this jobby is to explore new design techniques and integration processes between designers and developers. I hope to be able to publish something [an eBook probably] that will describe everything we went through to get it up and running.

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:

3 Dangerous Tips of Success

Dangerous life of responsibility or a safe life of justification? Which person are you? Are one of those people who play it safe or do you live dangerously?

I’m not talking about the jumping off cliffs and out of airplanes or even poking an angry bear trying to steal your picnic. No, I’m talking about being a person who sit’s in the corner of meetings, keeps their head down below cube level, gets twitchy every time the printer starts printing a report that you just know you’re going to have to process. Are you that person? Well or you?

…or do you live dangerously?
