  • De nada broder. You estudie at a design school in Pasadena California called Art Center College of Design. Artcenter dot edu. Estudie Graphic Design y Packaging pero focused on Digital. Una de mis teachers was Lynda Weiman de la fama de Lynda dot com. Check out that site, lots of great videos on learning software and coding.

  • so I m between a web developer and or desingner and a graphic designer >.<, I know a developer get paid more than a designer… but I find it boring all this coding, still I really like this cool lookig web sites… this video is a nice help, Graxias por subirlo y me gusto la forma como hablas x) pa lante mi hermano, una pregunta.. en k universidad estudisate y en k campo? web o dise;o grafico? 🙂 graxias!

  • This is an amazing theme, I am 17 , and I m thinking to persuade a “creative technological career” as I call it x), but I really struggle with becoming a Developer , or a Desinger, I like the web, but I also love graphics,

  • I don’t think that is a bad thing. I like looking at multiple content feeds on TweetDeck. I also like reading the news – Mashable, Techcrunch, Wall Street Journal – on my phone and reading my facebook and twitter feeds on Flipboard on my tablet. I look at sites on my laptop mainly for work.
    I think that “Web 3.0” is going to be all about VIDEO, Mobile and social. For me personally its about context and relevance.

  • What else… here’s a mortal question: The Web2.0 revolution has caused many to simply keep up to date using RSS, which the webmasters usually stream right onto facebook and twitter at that. I have a ton of websites I just follow using twitter and facebook, which is kind of a paradox, considering some have awesome websites (like Personal Branding and Timothy Sykes). So is Web2.0 effectively parasitizing websites? How to attract people to the website AND provide maximum connectivity?

  • Thanks for feedback. We are doing an “intermediate” module next and then an “advance module”. What what else would you like us to cover in the intermediate and advanced? These will have additional guest experts. I love Tumblr – and yes simpler is where things are heading. You can bet that as more “stuff” gets produced design will get simpler and simpler. BUT creating relevance and “stickiness” is about how sophisticated you are in the 360 degrees of the user experience process.

  • Meh, didn’t like this episode. You guys had a great few episodes which attracted intermediate to professional experts, but now you’re going to do a basic beginner tutorial? Didn’t have much use of this episode.

    Something for a future episode perhaps: will the tumblog format be the next big thing, even without tumblr? (I’m using it to create a wordpress magazine site right now.)
