"Sometimes reality is too complex. Stories give it form."

A Hodge Podge of Devices

This week’s commute is a short one: from my bed to the coffee machine and then to the kitchen table. Though in reality, I need to work in a coffee shop. One of my multimedia instructors (Hi Ian) once said that if you work from home, it’s best to have an office because if you work at the kitchen table, you’ll end up eating constantly. Or, if you work on the couch or in your bedroom you end up sleeping. It’s true.

I’m not in California. Obviously. I start a new project later in the month.

Once again, I’m spending time doing shit that never gets done. For example, this site… I’m an IXD/usability consultant, which means I consult on things like: incorporating user feedback into your development cycle, gathering user feedback during the development process, how to make your site scalable/responsive for devices, retina display friendly, insert buzzwords here, etc. I should probably eat my own dog food.

However, my own site is like the mechanic’s car… always in pieces and never quite working as it should. So, I spent a couple of days this weekend making it mobile device friendly / feed friendly. It’s not responsive… I had to hack in templates, which is not optimal and a bit like playing whack a mole.

As such, I’d like to get some feedback from people who have devices (comments should now work on phones). I’ve been able to test on multiple Android and IOS tablets and phones but I don’t have access to Windows, Palm or Blackberry devices and I want to make sure things are working as expected.

I’ll buy you a coffee if you take a quick peek (when I’m in whatever place you’re in — or via some digital means) and comment a couple of notes! Limited time offer.
