What I'm doing at the moment

03 Mar 2006

I keep being asked why I’m so busy, so I here’s a quick summary of what’s going on at the moment:

First of all, what I’m not doing…

Now, what I am doing…

What I am doing is working for Attap (which stands for ‘All things to all People’). As well as Riffs (which I worked on) and PersonalDNA (which I did a little work on), with another site to follow, as well as the biggie project LifeIO. My favourite part so far was the Attap ‘wee guy’ logo as he/she is affectionately known. It came together very quickly (once I’d turned the ‘a’ on it’s side).

I can’t say more about LifeIO than what the holding page does, except that I’m very excited to be given the chance to a project like this. It’s design is something to really get my teeth into. I know the amount of web apps being released is getting past silly, to the point where apathy is setting in. Barely a day goes by without another ‘Sign up, and we’ll tell you when we’re ready to Beta test’ goes by, or someone else drops the last vowel in their name. Its a harder market to release apps into than it was when Basecamp or Flickr started. This doesn’t put me off though, it just makes it more a challenge to do the best job I can on LifeIO.

I am also getting psyched up for another SXSW. I fly out next Thursday with other Britpackers, and I am so looking forward to it, despite my usual find-it-hard-to-leave-the-family-behind sadness. If you’re there, please come and say hi!

I’ve also been trying out Feedlounge and Wordpress (not as a replacement for this site, but as a CMS for a new site). More on those soon!

    Just tried the Vegan Sausage Roll from Greggs. Really good - nicer than the meat one, and the thought of Piers Morgan frothing at the mouth makes it even tastier
