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.
