“If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.”
Sir Ken Robinson
Thanks to a link shared by my friend and colleague, Michael Conti, today — I discovered Sir Ken Robinson. I will likely become a disciple of his, absorbing his words, teachings and books. According to the web: ”Sir Ken Robinson, PhD is an internationally recognized leader in the development of education, creativity and innovation.” Extremely witty and profoundly creative himself!
Even his website is a rush of excitement, fun and color. Still pondering the dialog I heard from him this morning on creativity in education. Wishing all the teachers/educators that I know would take heart! If you have 20 minutes for enlightment, listen to this.
Facebook is undergoing some major changes, the most significant of which affects fanbased pages — which are what you have for your business.
As of March 30, all fanbased pages will convert to the timeline interface. That means, major changes to the look of your page, but will also affect what is behind the scenes for you to manipulate.
We’d like to share some of the things we recently learned in webinars with Mari Smith and Social Media Examiner.
- Timeline interface will require a new cover image (about 851px x 315px) that has a space for seating a logo chop (required to be 180px square). Your old image will be cropped in a less than effective way after March 30, so you may consider having these two pieces of artwork chosen and uploaded in advance.
- Contests can no longer be handled in the casual way that folks have been doing them on fanbased pages in the past. You will be required to use a Facebook app (short for application) to implement contests. Facebook has noted that they will shut down fanbased pages not complying with this.
- It appears that image coupons can continue to be posted in an album and be the focus post of a certain time period, as done in the past. [click to continue…]

is usually falling down, or so it sometimes seems!
And a web developer’s site is sometimes the last thing they will update, as they are usually too busy with client projects to look into their own back yard.
And so, we offer this simple new site as a offering of our combined talents and services in the world of technology. It’s meant to showcase our design talents and technological expertise.
