A rainy night in Taipei, Taiwan

We’ve been at this a long time, but damn.

Two things I never imagined I’d be able to say: Today marks 12 years of business for a tiny freelance design studio I started when I was 17-years-old. And I’m writing this from Taiwan.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

— George Bernard Shaw

Saw her perform a few songs at Kermit Ruffins’ show. Way too short of a set. Can’t wait to see more.

If bad ideas
were an Olympic event,
this would take the gold.

I think im going

We have a paradox about progress: many people complain about how stuck in the past their organizations are, yet point to the lack of adoption of remote work as an indicator of it’s uselessnesses, rather than a reflection of their organization’s fearful grip on the status quo.
