I’m slowly shaping a new kind of life, and I want to share with you my change: I’m getting more and more involved in Graphic Design – though I’m quite old to do it! – and my idea is to share with everyone trapped like me in a job that doesn’t let them breathe, all my steps through the fog of metamorphosis from stern (!) technical draughtman to loose graphic designer.
I hope you stick with me for a long time to come!

Cheers

I’m not a graduate, but I’ve always loved knowledge, specially technical ones. While surfing the Web, searching for maths equations, I found this link to M.I.T. Open Courseware.

You don’t have to regeister and you can have free access to lectures, homeworks, exams and slides: all you need to go and have your Graduation…almost.

Of course, I found all I needed 🙂

It is particularly misused in very large companies, or in those jobs where documents are more important than job itself.
But…someone had my same opinion and wrote this article! Thank you!!

Btw, I run my life on Mac and, thanks to Cupertino, Mail it’s not equipped with this devilry, but anywhere you can find utilities that fill this “gap”: here’s one





Communication breakdown

here they talk about a BIG problem for people who, like me, like to have some privacy and not want to be bothered every second of their day: it’s a brilliant way to teach how realtionship must be run!
G’day!
