there are two kinds of designers. the tool experts and the ‘designers’. i have found that some doesnt even try to understand the language of design. tell them whats there to be done in that picture using photoshop. they will do it. draw sketches, explain in detail about the short movie and they will do a draft for you in flash. after few tweaks and changes, your movie is somewhat done and up for release. these guys are called ‘tool experts’. they are also known as ‘freelancers’ in some parts of the world.

the others- precisely the ‘designers’- *think* also. and that makes all the difference.

all designers and some kinda tool experts. but its not true the other way round.

One of the most popular ‘start pages’, netvibes released the beta version their latest offering called the netvibes ginger edition. Right now I am testing it, the details/review will be coming soon. Meanwhile you can request for the beta version access by entering your netvibes account details – if you already have one – in the ginger page.

The major change is its introduction of a public page for you, marking its entry into the the social networking platform.

For years, netvibes have been my start page whenever I used to have one. I have been involved with their translation to local languages also. Personally I feel its the best web 2.0 start page available on the net.

Update: TechCrunch is offering 500 free invitations for its readers. Go there to grab it.

“There’s a secret that real writers know that wannabe writers don’t, and the secret is this: It’s not the writing part that’s hard. What’s hard is sitting down to write.What’s keeping us from sitting down is Resistance.”

Stephen Pressfield in his book The War of Art
