A few weeks ago, I received an email from Tim Trombly, asking if I would like to review his new product, Fins-Up. In short, Fins-Up is a built-in stand for Apple notebooks, which serves a twofold purpose. Firstly, it raises the incline of the keyboard to a more ergonomic level. Secondly, it allows increased airflow beneath the computer itself, helping to prevent over-heating.
I first heard about Fins-Up from my friend and former coworker Cody Lindley.
This past weekend, I was able to attend the Webmaster Jam Session hosted locally here in Dallas. I have to say, of all the conferences I have been to, I got the most out of this one. In the vein of the adage “less is more,” this concise event packed quite a bit into the two days it lasted.
Smashing Magazine, a blog dedicated to covering helpful design and development resources, just turned 1 year old this week. To celebrate, they are having a book give-away. They also asked a series of questions of top web designers, for an article entitled 50 Designers x 6 Questions. It’s well worth the read, especially because many people more talented than myself took the time to share their thoughts.
Be forewarned, this is going to be one of those introspective blog posts.
