They mess about on corkboards.
In the previous post we did something a little different. If you missed it then no worries, it was just a slightly different approach to having a chat with each other, playing around a little, and even discussing IM too. The link is down now as otherwise it would go on for ever, but the gist of it was that we used corkboard.me to post little post-it notes about anything that we wanted. They could be edited, moved around a board, or deleted.
And, not surprisingly there are some real idiots out there who thought it would be fun to delete everything that people wrote, just for the hell of it. I would like whoever did it to answer the “why” in the comments section, yeah right.
Anyway, it was good fun, something a little unusual, and if nothing else it may have given a little inspiration for ideas on what to put on blogs and sites etc. The simplicity of making cool graphics with such programs can really juice up how a site looks if you do a simple screen grab of your results. It is certainly worth trying to think a little outside of the box and getting some graphics on your site that make you something different to the rest.
I saved a load of screen grabs so here are some of the highlights. We did actually have some interesting discussions as well as some fun.
Here we go:
It certainly made a change to answering questions in the comments section.
Let me know if you enjoyed it. I know it had its drawbacks, especially the fact that some Muppet kept deleting everything, but it also kind of made it more fun too. Anyway, comments are open again and normal business is resumed.
