    Tags: being creative when sick, web design   

    The benefits of a feverish mind 

    If anyone’s interested, I revised my personal web site this past weekend.  I was pretty sick and couldn’t sleep for more than 30 hours.  Partway through my sleepless marathon, I thought about a quick redesign, and said, “Why not?”

    One reason why getting sick should not be avoided altogether is the fertile and changed thinking that arises in a feverish mind, of which this revision is good evidence.  The bold coloring is a continuing spin out from love, with a sprinkle of exposure to Seidel.  Though I’m liking it for now, it’s not done —  I have a lot of content to add, I will probably try to create a WordPress install to support the writings section, and the design itself will change.  But anyway, it’s fresh and OK at the moment.

    Raghav’s song Humrahee and an essay about how the web is affecting journalism have one thing in common — uncommon beauty.

    Humrahee, written and performed by Raghav — tender, lyrical, gorgeous:

    Clay Shirky’s “Newspapers and Thinking the Unthinkable”, a profound essay on how the web is affecting journalism (and by implication, other businesses and arts):

    God bless the Internet — that’s all of us — for what it allows us to experience and share.

    The NYTimes has a lot of interesting stuff going on. One of my fav’s is the City Room blog, here:
    http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com

    Today there’s “Fired Over a Tuna Sandwich, and Fighting Back”, a sad story, where justice of a personal kind prevailed, but a larger social justice didn’t:

    and “The Moral Costs of Counterfeiting”, with some surprising thoughts:
