It’s unfortunate that a ‘climate of sensitivity’ was enforced so heavy-handedly. It’s unfortunate so many other players had to get involved to re-establish common sense. Especially at a campus that – at least when I was there – had gun lockers in the dorms for students. I trust the administration and police will be more sensitive in the future.

I’m happy to announce two new client sites launched this week: one for Experience Life magazine and one for Minneapolis advertising and design studio .
Both sites are powered by a heavily-customized WordPress installation.
The Experience Life effort included the development of a system to migrate 10 years of archives, comments, assets, URLs (including shortened URLs) into WordPress. Additionally, WordPress was customized to be organized around monthly issues rather than blog post chronology.
The focus of the Fellow effort was in successfully merging the unique creative vibe of Fellow and the reliability of WordPress.
On any given day, I’ll be interacting with 4-6 different internet-enabled devices (multiple laptops, a handheld, a couple of tablets) the only quality they share is a decent browser and I wanted a fast, simple way to update my writing across all of them.
All the existing apps I found were filled with distractions, didn’t work across all devices, required learning a wonky syntax, didn’t deal well with long form text, or some combination of thereof.
