Quick notes, thoughts and ramblings.


Appropriateness is something I keep coming back to when it comes to evaluating web technologies. I don’t think there are good tools and bad tools; just tools that are appropriate or inapropriate for the task at hand.” — Jeremy Keith

Gosh, I appreciated this tweet from Scott Jehl today.


I'm looking to get myself back into photography again. Specifically landscape photography. I've missed the space it used to give me.
