Re: Yo! 2017 sketch a day

How does Facebook see You?

I was listening to a podcast that tried to answer the question of Facebook listening on your conversations for ad placement: https://gimletmedia.com/episode/109-facebook-spying/ Thats interesting in it's own right, but within the episode they mentioned that your profile as compiled from your activit...

Re: BLADE RUNNER 2049... (spoilers)...

@MR-914: The shocking thing is that some places do look like that ( china for instance) , just not CA.

Re: Went looking for design employment advice...

Unfortunately, I'm 40 and way past the "starting over" thing. Starting over has this big weight and stigma attached to it, a factory that used to build a product that no longer sells can retool and be successful, something that is very common and normal. The age part is also subjective, I...
