Posted in Blogging, Tips, Web Design, WordPress4 months ago • Written by 1 Comment

The frailty of creatives is that they never get 100% content with their creation. As Leonardo Vinci said, “Art is never finished, only abandoned.” It resounds true to most designers. There’s always a little bit of regret when closing a project they’ve spent several hours to a couple of weeks refining to the pixel. Creatives seem to have a problem on how to embrace imperfection.

As a writer I understand this too. I paint pictures with words and there are literally hundreds of ways to project an image, but only a handful of them put together will give the “right feel”.

  • Do you simply know what will work perfectly together or do you have a set of checklist to follow?

Internet neutrality has been under siege by corporations and world governments for several years now. They are discovering that it’s not just a tool for communication and entertainment, but also to spread ideas across borders and elicit action beyond governing.

The Internet has given birth to many important services, inventions, and ideologies. Not only that, it has also provided millions of people entertainment and access to instant communication. With that in place, who wants the Internet to be limited?

Net neutrality, in the most basic sense, means everyone gets equal treatment on the Internet no matter where, what ISP they use, and network they connect to.
