I think the most important thing is just to do what you want to do. A lot of times you get derailed from making movies when you are trying to support yourself or you’re not doing the things you want to do with your day.

When I was in New York and I couldn’t support myself doing exactly what I wanted to do, I moved. I went somewhere where I could squat till I could figure out how to make what I wanted to make.

[On prioritizing] If you have to do something you don’t want to do all day long, you won’t have the emotional energy to create stuff.

Benh Zeitlin, Director, Beasts of the Southern Wild

I think you could [inarguably] take out the word “movies” and insert any other creative endeavor, and this would still be 100% accurate and applicable.

Excerpt from Oscar-Nominated Director Benh Zeitlin on Not Waiting For Permission on @99u

The Naive Optimist: Startups, you don't need to be in Silicon Valley »

ryanleecarson:

We just announced that Treehouse has raised $7m in funding, led by Kaplan with S+C participating.

I think this is a great place to take a stand and say you don’t need to be in Silicon Valley (or a “startup hub”) in order to raise money for your startup or be successful.

creativemornings:

From her February 2011 New York talk, Debbie Millman’s:

The Top 10 Things I Wish I Knew When I Graduated College

01. design talent is equivalent to operational excellence.
02. design is not about design.
03. there are two things that are not really about what we think they’re about: money and sex.
04. ideas are easy. strategy is much harder.
05. know what you are talking about.
06. common vocabulary does not equate to common behavior. 
07. relentlessly prepare.
08. be aware of artificial harmony.
09. seek out criticism.
10. you need to know how to present.

Watch the talk.

20 top web design and development trends for 2013 from .net »

From Responsive Web Design to the explosion of mobile, .net’s 20 top web design and development trends for 2013 is an incredible collection of predictions from our industry’s foremost experts (e.g. Eric Meyer, Remy Sharp, Dan Eden, James Gardner, et al.).

Based on my personal observations over the last 6 months, I’d say the list is insightful and comprehensive. It’s definitely worth a quick scan, if not a few thoughtful read-throughs.

HighEdWeb 2012 Poster Presentation...Storify'd. »

While looking through some of the other poster presentations posted to the HighEdWeb 2012 website, I came across the Storify story by Chapman University.

ChapmanU’s story about the #CUGrad12 got me thinking about my original plan for telling the TechZone Redesign story through blog posts. I liked the continuity Chapman was able to achieve while telling their story, so I decided to check out Storify’s story-telling capabilities for myself.

Turns out that Storify is pretty good for telling a story of this nature, albeit with a few workarounds to outsmart some of the site’s limitations (Why u no like PDFs, Storify?!).

There are still a few areas left to cover, but if you’re looking for the rest of the TechZone Redesign story, you’ll find it on Storify.
