You Should Draw Project

Over the last two days, I’ve spent my evenings working on a quick project idea that I had called YouShouldDraw.com. I enjoy watching Draw with Jazza on YouTube, especially his character design sessions where he comes up with random words to base his characters on and allows his audience to decide each piece via a […]

Computer Accessibility

Having my mother-in-law live here for the last couple of weeks has definitely highlighted how horrible accessibility is in technology. My mother-in-law has a Blackberry Playbook as well as an Acer Chromebook.
