feeling: Groovy. Lalala la la la la, Feeling Groovy. (Not really. But I am in a Simon & Garfunkel mood.)

I write about Ad stuff?

I thought I wrote about business and the internet and, yes, advertising, but mostly design.

"Well, Jon," you may say, "You haven't written a damn thing about design in months on this blog."

"Well," I say to you, "I think everything I write about it about design, because most of the things I am writing about are things that are not fulfilling their potential because their creators have either not considered the nature of what they are creating, or they have lost focus somewhere during the process. Design is not how it looks. Design is how it works. Graphics do work. They do just as much work (if not more, in a more subtle way) as ads, or a bridge, or piece of electronics."

And then you would say, "Damn. Why do you have to be so heavy all the time?"
