What the heck is going on, you ask? Say hello to Tersus.

WordPress.com

Just received an invite to try out WordPress.com. So far, it seems pretty cool. I’ve only got limited familiarity with WordPress as a blog app, so I’m not going to be the most knowledgeable when it comes to comparing WordPress.com vs. the downloadable version… What I have seen so far has been pretty cool.

Just me and Cocoa

Been pretty busy lately. Some major projects have fallen on my lap here at work, and I’ve been working hard to keep my head above water.

The Next Great Battle

If you thought the Adobe/Macromedia merger was huge, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Microsoft’s getting into the design biz. On the surface, this doesn’t seem like a big deal. But it is.
