Another amazing visualization tool for web data and research. Webpages as Graphs I haven't gotten the key out yet so I am not sure what the various colors mean, but I can see this being a very effective way to communicate web design issues, linking strategies, SEO optimization, and any other structural dynamics that are hard to see from the page-level view.
OTFD Observe | Thought | Feeling | Desire OTFD is a very effective way to talk about problems. The goal behind this communication tool is to articulate feelings in a positive manner while focusing on a solution to the problem.
Buy, by all means, get a degree! And then pursue something you are passionate about. What keeps you up at night and wakes you up early in the morning with a source of energy that is generated from within. On those mornings, like this morning, I still make coffee but I don't drink but a few sips. Eureka!
"The evolution of social media depends on the evolution of the browsing experience."
