  • PDFmyURL

    Every once in a while, a friend or client asks me how to ‘copy’ a website so they can print it out and share it with others. While I am always happy to help with screenshots, lately I’ve found that sharing PDF my URL is far easier–in one click, the site produces a PDF from…

  • Cargotecture

    Since the 1,300 mile move in October, I’ve had a new appreciation for freight containers. The fact that two apartments worth of belongings and an industrial workshop-worth of tools and machinery into a single box without filling it was simply amazing to me— the ultimate game of tetris, I suppose. So it’s no wonder I’m…
