Do you use your computer at night? Install this app and save your eyes

The application f.lux works on your Mac and adjusts the colors during the night hours. Think of it as dimming the lights in your apartment as you wind down for the evening. The application warms the colors on your screen during evening hours so your eyes and brain can relax in the low light while you stare at the screen. Once installed you’ll be able to adjust how much the screen changes, as well as easily disabling it for times when you need true colors on screen.

At this moment it seems that queer visual culture needs to nourish our sense of potentiality and not reinforce our feeling of disappointment. If we are to go on, we need a critical modality of hope and not simply dramatization of loss and despair

Today: 8 Year Anniversary at FontShop. Coming Soon: Sabbatical

Today marks my 8 year anniversary at FontShop.

In that time I’ve worked on a ton of different projects, including the recent undertaking of the TYPO conference in San Francisco.  Along the way I’ve had the great pleasure of working with the best variety of people possible. I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for the camaraderie and support I’ve had during my time with the FontShop family.

What’s next?

Starting late April 2013 I’ll be taking a leave of absence from FontShop for about 6 months. Personally, I’ll be calling it a sabbatical (I love this word).

During that time I’ll be traveling and experimenting with a few creative ideas.

First stop is India to wander around hills of Darjeeling to see tea estates and learn the history that region (did you know I like tea?) After that I’ll spend some time in Zürich with my brother and sister-in-law and some time in Berlin to bike around that city.

Then back to San Francisco to see what’s next for me.
