Seamus as a child

Work – How we work began in our childhood

Putting “nurture vs nature” debates aside,  HOW we learn and work do start from our childhood.

Refinement through pressure and fire

3 Litmus Tests for a Profitable Website

If you are a CXO, the most important things that occupy must be two things – profitability and sustainability. You can be profitable today, but can you sustain the company for the infinity?

Hammers, Swords & Computers – they are just tools, not gods

I find it amusing, as a computer scientist and cybersecurity practitioner, that many, nerds and non-nerds, are enamored by all things computers – coding, cybersecurity, AI, etc.

Website Design, Elegance and Form – Lessons from WordPress

When Gutenberg was introduced on WordPress in 2017, users disliked it. Its block-based approach to content creation and editing was not elegant, but was gearing towards more design than substance, copying from lesser competitors like Wix.

Mevo & Blue Microphone for video livestream

ZOOM? Mevo? I was already doing TV livestreaming in 2002!

In the COVID-19 crisis, we are seeing TV studios chatting with guests and even their anchors in their homes, as if seeing a sudden transformation of the TV and radio business within a matter of months in 2020. However, these are NOT new. I was doing it real-time, broadcasting “live” with my colleagues in California, many time zones and oceans away, in 2002!

Mac

Macs I’ve owned

I have owned and/or used these Macs from 1986. The ones I loved a great deal included the Mac LC (my first purchased Mac for my startup design studio, all that I could afford really), the PowerBook Duo 2300c (one of the best imho, sadly stolen when my house was broken into), and the PowerBook Ti G4 (a classic, too bad the PowerPC architecture ran its course).
