Chris Coleman returns

March 25, 2019

Chris Coleman, on his 17-year-old and recently unearthed personal blog:

I want my platform back. I don’t want algorithms or the cacophony to drown it out. If nobody’s going to see what I write, it’s going to be on my terms.

Chris was vital part of my career though he likely doesn’t know it. The first time I saw Photoshop used for web graphics was on his Powerbook. The first time I saw someone use a portable Mac for building cool stuff that had nothing to do with work was him. And the first person I saw combine his interests with the web was him as well. All of these things I hold valuable to everything I do.

In short, Chris taught me by example to work on what you love and use the tools you love to do it.

I’m glad his blog is back. I’m subscribed.

I love that conclusion; thanks for sharing his wisdom with us.

I’m glad to be back!

I don’t quite know what it is, but I’m really overflowing with the energy and desire to just do this sort of stuff lately. I think part of it is the satisfaction of moving something out of the backlog and marking it as done.

I even spent a few weeks playing a bunch of old NES games late last year/early this year, and beating Blaster Master actually felt like I accomplished something I had been avoiding for literally thirty years (also, it gives me something to write about eventually).

It’s a good feeling and I’m excited to keep it up!
