Did everyone catch the Dilbert comic strip this past Sunday? It speaks to the soul of graphic designers everywhere. Mine's on the fridge. If you missed it, here it is:
<http://www.unitedmedia.com/comics/dilbert/archive/dilbert-20031214.html>

(You know, of course, that Dilbert creator Scott Adams and I are old and dear friends? Okay, I'm probably reading more into our relationship than exists, but he DID write me an e-mail once:
<http://www.senecadesign.com/geekness/fanmail/fanmail-celebs.html>)

I'm not Flash's biggest fan (well I think Flash is fantastic of course, but it's mainly all-Flash web sites that seem like a cop-out to me … suffer with HTML like the rest of us!), but these two sites I recently came across were phenomenal enough for me to bookmark in my "Cool Sites" category, which gets about one addition every six months … after 8 years of surfing, I'm picky.

Flash Pen: <http://ge.liveserver.com/Imagine>
Not only can you create artwork with the on-screen magical pen, but you can play your creation back as a recording, and e-mail the recording to people right from the page.

Dominey Design: <http://domineydesign.com/>
Todd Dominey is a new media designer in Atlanta, Georgia. Here's one example of how an all-Flash web site actually makes sense, and in fact will knock your socks off. Be sure to click on the "Map" sign on the opening artwork to delve into the site and see how well he presents his portfolio.

By the way, Todd is the man behind one of my favorite blogs:
"What Do I Know": <http://www.whatdoIknow.org>

And finally, Forbes magazine had nice stuff to say about Apple recently; if you're a long-time Mac user, you'll feel somewhat vindicated:
"Happy Birthday, Mac!" (12/15/03)
<http://www.forbes.com/2003/12/15/cz_qh_1215macat20.html>
and
"An App The Mac Can Brag About" (12/15/03) (no, it's not iTunes)
<http://www.forbes.com/2003/12/15/cx_ah_1215tentech.html>

  

That's all, folks … Have a wonderful holiday, and I'll see you next year!
