The little triangle thingy below is an interactive version of the Love-Growth-Cash Triangle by Jack Cheng. It’s a graph to visualize the totality of career/life decisions based on personal enjoyment, personal growth, and paying the bills. Or so I think. I think his idea was to demonstrate how much of the triangle you might be missing if you weight your life decisions too heavily on one of those criteria. I thought it could also show how much of the total you’ve got covered. Not a perfect representation (and yes, it’s all relative) but I thought it could at least assist in clarifying things.
      My good friend Thomas sent the link to me (rather topical at the time and still is at the time of this posting) and I wanted to see how quickly I could knock out an interactive version. It just looked ripe for some dynamic behaviour.
      Click and drag the coloured circle below.

There is a (free) WordPress application for the iPhone that provides an easy and intuitive interface to make blog posts from the iPhone. The app allows you to upload images from your camera roll or to take a snapshot at the time of writing a post and it will be directly inserted into said post. It also locally stores and manages posts and comments, whether they are published, drafts or other.
      Not the most Earth-shattering app ever (nor is WordPress the only example of a blogging app). It’s not like you couldn’t make posts from your smart-phone without it. Most people probably wouldn’t do it anyways. But I think this is a good example of how people with a given skill-set got together to improve something they believe in and bring it in line with technological trends, in this case the WordPress platform and mobile devices. I know I’m more likely to post from my iPhone because of it.
      So this is a test to see how it works, using a photo I took near my home.

      The repetition of the posters made me pause as patterns often do, so I took a picture. The vignetting is not a camera effect, rather, it is a result of me forgetting to remove the lens cover. I think it works with the deteriorating feel of the street itself, so I kept this photo.

Welcome to the inaugural real post of the weblog of Jae-Ho Yoo. Here, I will share with you my darkest, deepest, innermost secrets and wacky, random musings about all sorts of things. This might include stuff about Flash programming, which is what I do. But this isn’t meant to be one of those technical blogs, it won’t be all Flash. The maintenance of this blog is also a way for acquaintances of mine to catch up on what I’m up to because I don’t have a Facebook account. Yes, I’m that guy. The one who looked the Facebook pirates square in their beady eyes and said, “nein.”
      So, lets have good times together. Whether that means tinkering with and discussing the latest craze to hit the world or we animate Gladys, The Groovy Mule, we should be in for quite the sojourn on this vast, enigmatic dimension we call the intubewebs.
