@frank I still recall the excitement of following the public timeline on Twitter, there was a sense of optimism and that a community was building. You and I wouldn't have 'met' without being a part of this. That's humbling.
@frank I joined for similar reasons. The actual technology behind it is secondary to the shared world view of the people who actually use. There is an increased risk of living inside a bubble that's out of touch, but the risk is worth it.
@rohdesign There at a few of us here; it's quality, not quantity. I've been pleasantly surprised by the number of typographically focused discussions I've been having here. Long may that continue. /cc @elliotjaystocks
@rohdesign Interesting to read your bio. I've been pushing sketchnoting to my students in Belfast, we should definitely have a chat sometime. (Amongst other things I write for 8 Faces, and I've been pushing REWORK since it hit print, great illustrations!)
@rohdesign I run an MFA at University of Ulster, Belfast, where I've been stressing the importance of visual thinking. Would be great to talk and, should you visit Belfast, line up a visiting lecturer opportunity. (We look after speakers with Guinness!)
@q Anyone who tries, "to focus on (the) silliness," is nice in my book. I was serious about the Belfast offer, I run an MFA Multidisciplinary Design with a web focus, I'm always on the lookout for interesting speakers. Just followed you.
@q As someone (a couple of years) past 40 and working in this ever-changing industry, I definitely feel like every day is still university. That said, I believe anyone working as an educator has a responsibility to stay abreast of what's current.
@christopher I would love to come to Northern Ireland. It would need to be next year though - book, video and a baby on the way in September!
P.S. Ask Davy about his dream wherein I was running a small coffee shop in the center of town. :-)
