Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page

OMG! Famous magazine and Web designer Roger Black still uses Eudora on his Mac!  So do I!  We’re like twins!

But I’ve learned other things today, too.  I’ve learned that media literacy is an issue that adults think students and young folks need to learn about, but really, it’s adults who need it.

I’ve learned that starting at 7:00 a.m. EST means I’m getting up at the time I usually go to bed, and that even three Diet Cokes won’t make me any smarter even if I do seem wide awake.

I’ve learned that it’s delightful to meet one’s clients face-to-face, especially if it’s unplanned.  And launching a Web site is tough when you’re at a conference, even if the wifi is great.

I’ve learned that no one, and I mean NO ONE, produces content at the pace of the folks from Northern Voice.  One day into it, there are 80 Flickr photos tagged “wemedia” from this year, and 40 are from me.  One day into Northern Voice, there were 1,200 photos.

And I’ve learned that I am unable to not eat cookies with M&Ms in them.  yum!


“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
