Hard to believe I've been writing here on Rohdesign for 12 years. It all started as a blog to share my thinking after selling The Palm Tipsheet in 2003.
Thanks for your support al these years!
New Feature: The Rohdesign Dispatch
After 12 years, it's time to try new things. Starting today, a Rohdesign Dispatch like this will happen every 2 weeks, with an image, comments and links I've found interesting. This is an experiment, so I'd love your feedback.
♥ Honesty, Clarity and Action - Shawn Blanc talks about the common denominator between the people we admire and follow: A commitment to honesty and clarity with a bias toward action. Shawn is also working on his new book The Power of a Focus Life, which I can't wait to read.
♥ A Coffee Lover’s Guide to Tea - As a big fan of coffee, I found this post from Michael Allen Smith a helpful primer in better understanding tea, so I can explore and enjoy it fully.
♥ Free Tools in Paper by FiftyThree - I'm enjoying Paper and Pencil on my iPad from my friends at FiftyThree. Now they've made Draw, Sketch, Outline, Write, Color, and Mixer tools free in the app (formerly in-app purchases).
♥ Inquisitive #27: Behind the App #1: History - Myke Hurley has created a fascinating, story-driven, documentary-style podcast series about how apps, so integrated into our lives, came to be. Future episodes will explore how apps are made, giving listeners insight about the lives of app developers.
I've especially enjoyed hearing your replies to my posts, so please say hello. The more I hear what you like (and what you don't) the better my posts will be.
For those who read to the very bottom, I'm giving away 1 pass to The Designer's Pricing Class ($200 value) from my friends at nuSchool. Reply with a comment about why you should win the class and I will choose and announce the winner in 2 weeks. Good luck!
