Well, it’s been way too long since I posted again. Just coming down off a busy summer wherein the company moved offices and I launched a major new site. Took lots of pictures, but I’m several months backlogged. Cooler weather’s coming soon, and I hope to get mostly caught up before our big trip to Morocco in October.

Anyway, today was the big American Eclipse of 2017 (not to be confused with the even darker American Eclipse of 2016), so here are a few pictures from temporarily-not-sunny downtown Toledo.

Just a quick post to congratulate our client, Hyla Mobile, on the launch of the brand new HylaMobile.com! Hyla Mobile is a leader in mobile device recycling; they partner with major carriers like AT&T and Verizon to offer mobile phone and tablet trade-in programs, as well as sophisticated price forecasting and analytics. They collect more than 7 million devices every year and recycle or refurbish them for resale or donation around the world, including to American troops overseas.

Making updates to a Flex project in 2016 is like excavating the ruins of a once-great lost civilization.

I found an abandoned tab from earlier today with a single word in the address bar: “scrool”. I don’t know what I was looking for, but I’m sure it was important.


Steve Hanson, the owner of Hanson Inc, owns the film rights to Kahlil Gibran’s book The Prophet. He and Hanson’s COO, Jenny Jacob, have been working with a whole raft of Hollywood stars and producers, including Salma Hayek, to turn the book into an animated feature film.

Part of the movie was shown at this year’s Cannes film festival. A few of us at the office pulled some late nights to put together a small site for the premier. Ryan Forquer designed the site using art from the movie, Joel Trzcinski handled the phone calls with Hollywood types, and I put the site together.

Last week I saw about 20 minutes of the movie, and all I can say is that it’s going to be spectacular. You can view the site at gibransprophetmovie.com and follow @gibransprophet on Twitter for more information.
