10ft Deep —

This weekend I had a great conversation with a friend about the illusive world of web development; the positives and negatives about trendy coding practices, the marvel of how far we've come from designing wireframes in photoshop, and the perplexity of people who actually design mobile first.

Brushing up on my html/css this year has been opening a lot of creative outlets for me lately, and am excited to see how that comes to fruition. I've almost forgotten what it's like to talk shop with someone face to face. Especially while my back was facing this building pictured above, and my eyes subconsciously traced the Adirondack Mtns in the distance.

And here we are this fine start to the week with some links and drips that saw some screen time between my lines of code. Enjoy!
