Updates + The Atrociousness of the Color White in Web Design


Well, I’ve been bumped to a different month on the 30/30 project,
possibly as late as Summer. Still, I have finished the text on the
updated manuscript, and if I get it in today as seems very possible,
it should be available around 3/22. Also working on a T-Shirt design
for Spreadshirt which 75% of my proceeds will be donated (15% to
erowid.org, 15% to the Drug Policy Alliance, 15% to the National Legal
Aid & Defender Association, 15% to National Association for Public
Defense, and 15% to the ACLU. Also, a new Message + Quote of the Day

The Atrociousness of the Color White in Web Design

The Horror! The Horror!
The Internet is White. So White.
Everywhere white. As if, ‘oh, we couldn’t be bothered to come up with a color scheme’ – ‘It’s just a webpage, after all!’
White. We have always had white.
Paper white, from brown to glaring…
One would think, …
Now that computers …
We have the means …
To forever free ourselves …
From the white ..
That sears the eyes …
We would _ _
But no. People dislike change. People fear choice.
All the possible colors [not counting LSD or natural synaesthetes..]
All the possible bad choices . .
