Wish I had such a big built in wall-bookshelf, I’d organize my books by color as well…
What is a gravatar? A gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is quite simply an 80×80 pixel avatar image that follows you from weblog to weblog appearing beside your name when you comment on gravatar enabled sites. Avatars help identify your posts on web forums, so why not on weblogs?

I was happy to attend yet another Spark event last night, this time about Blogging.
I truly enjoyed Nelly Yusupova’s presentation. I have wanted to meet her for quite a while now. She gave us a thorough pros+cons overview on Self-Hosted Blogging Services. (I know that I should finally move this blog over to my own server and integrate it in WordPress, MovableType or Texpattern. Has anyone of you any experience in moving a typepad blog over to one of the self-hosted blogging tools?)
Marketing Strategist and influental blogger B.L. Ochman gave a very lively presentation. This woman has ‘Umpf’. Wish she would have been given more time to present. I loved how she described herself a “global micro brand”. Her ending quote made me smile: “Change the world or go home!”
Cary Solly gave a very basic introduction to what blogs are, as there were a lot of people who were completely new to the blogging thing. I would have loved to listen to some of her more advanced blogging-cyberworld-insights as she seemed to have a wealth knowledge – she’s a senior editor at About.com.
If you’re an (independent) designer living in NYC, make sure to attend one of the upcoming Spark Events.
You just have to love a rocking horse that a) looks so designy and b) has the name OLGA.

And I couldn’t agree more with that statement. I need more time. Or at least two clones. So many ideas in my head, not enough time and hands. (Enter sigh here.)
