People call me The Community Guy
So true it's scary
If Architects Had To Work Like Web Designers… Dear Mr. Architect: Please design and build me a house. I am not quite sure of what I need, so you should use your discretion.

The World of Color
I recently came across this site that is a terrific look at the world of color. Sounds dull, but it’s really quite fun. Check it out.

Amazon’s Customer Images
I just noticed a new (?) feature on Amazon: Customer Images. Looks like Amazon is tapping into their customer base, their…..community… to help them fill out their product image gallery. A great example of not having to pay people to do work WITH you. As a wise man (and former boss) used to say often […]
