How the Sausage is Made

When I started dabbling within the world of “web design” it was 1997, I had just moved to an entirely new part of the country, and there was a surplus of time. Being the new kid without much middle school acceptance as of yet, those first few months made for…

Oddisee, The Carter Barron

Oddisee, The Carter Barron

I recently caught Oddisee and The Good Company in small venue in Denver. I’ve been following his work as a rapper and producer for the last few years, originally taking stock of the Rock Creek Park instrumental album released back in 2011.

Sporting a decidedly east coast vibe, Oddisee…

Working Remotely Around Family and Friends

We’ve been big proponents of the remote working movement for years now at Authentic Form & Function, and as we dig digger into the culture it encompasses, multiple sub-topics arise and warrant further discussion.

Chon, Sketch

Chon, Sketch

My brother recently told me about the band Chon after seeing them as an opening act for Circa Survive. A band recommendation from him doesn’t go unnoticed, so I quickly scanned both albums on Rdio: the Woohoo! EP and the recent studio release, Grow.

Immediately I fell in love with the noodly…

Scope Matters: A Digital Disaster

This article was originally written as a stream of thought “brain dump” roughly one year ago as a way to purge my thoughts after losing the reigns on a large UI design and development project. Below, I recount that story, both as a narrative and as an education to others in a similar field.
