Where is Web Publishing Heading in 2010?

I like to solve problems. At this point in my life, I’m focused on solving the fundamental problems of Web design and development through my business, DIYthemes, and my software, Thesis.

One of the most compelling things I’ve learned in the past year, however, is that it’s not good enough to crank out “sufficient” solutions to problems. Truly sustainable answers require a style of thinking that involves patience, perspective, skill, testing, and unbiased criticism. Additionally, it’s crucial to realize that the best solutions we can generate should be reflective of our own human nature—in other words, we must strive to make them as adaptable as we are.

Through my work on Thesis, I’ve begun to see all sorts of new connections that reveal the direction the Web is heading, and I know that I can use these insights to figure out better solutions to the problems I’m already tackling.

Recently, I sat down with Nick Reese from Art of Blog to talk about some of these insights and to share my thoughts heading into 2010. You can check out the original interview on Nick’s site, or you can click here to watch the video in HD on Pearsonified :D

Enter Neography

Time to have a web presence, improve my writing skills and share my work. After years of not having my own personal website, I’ve decided to give it a try.

That’s right, as if I didn’t have enough websites to keep updated, I’ve decided to start my own personal blog in an effort to share some of my thoughts and at the same time try to improve my not so hot writing skills. In addition, this website will serve as a hub for all things me, a place to share all my daily findings, my work, photographs, etc.

Before You Judge

I’ve been working on this site for over a year. Shameful, I know, it’s what I get for not setting a deadline. At the end of 2009 I decided I had to get the site up in January of 2010, so here we are. I had to get this out there before another year went by.

The site isn’t 100% complete. There are sections of the site which are unfinished and still need improvement, the markup and CSS will possibly be re-written, so please look at it as a living thing that will be constantly changing as I go.

Stay tuned, it will get interesting around here in the next few months.

In the mean time, have a look around, and if you have any feedback, feel free to send me a note or leave a comment below.
