Search vs Organization [Infographic]

search versus organization - cm

I like to keep my files organized, but it isn't often until I am further into a project that I realize a better way to organize. So, I re-organize them. Even with all this organization of file folders on my computer, I can still have a hard time sifting through my files to find exactly what I am looking for. I do the same with my email, and when I've asked others how they organize their email, they simple say: I use search. How do you organize your computer files? Desktop computers are ...

Learning from the Church Tech Saints Before Us

twr-image

Technology is always moving forward. It's always looking forward. In fact, as I write this, everyone is talking about today's Apple event where they will announce and display the newest bit of technology. By its very nature, technology is always knocking on the future's door. But what about old technology? Some of us call it ‘retro,’ reminisce a little and move on to the next new thing. But I am afraid we have left principles and concepts laid down by the saints before us; those early adopters ... Continue Reading

Hubbble — Favorite Tweets In Your Inbox

favorite tweets image

Do you favorite tweets on Twitter? For the longest time I didn't, but then I realized it was a great way to show others that you're listening and paying attention, without having to retweet everything. Someone mentions you, hit the favorite star. Someone says something funny, hit the favorite star. It's been a nice bridge between the gap of enjoying a tweet without any kind of recognition, retweeting, or replying. But what if the favorite star did a little more than that? Check out Hubbble. ...

ive got a headache yo

This poster series by Jonathan Quintin, founder and creative director at STUDIOJQ, will make each and every graphic and web designer smile—especially those who freelance. But as I scrolled through these and identified with them, it got me thinking about what it was like to do creative work for my church back in the United States. These statements apply to freelance graphic artists, web developers and just about anyone working in a creative agency; but they could just as easily refer to those of ... Continue Reading

The Rice Bucket Challenge

Rice Bucket Challenge Montage

The Ice Bucket Challenge took social media by storm and was/has been a great success with millions of dollars raised for charities. It's also given something fun for people to share online. But in India, Manju Latha Kalanidhi saw all of this social media soaking and wondered how this “challenge” could be applied to the people of India: “[P]eople dumping water on themselves, shrieking, taking videos, the whole idea sort of went over my head…. I felt that as Indians we could not connect to it at ... Continue Reading

‘Anomaly’ by Lecrae [GIVEAWAY]

Saturday Morning Review - Lecrae

The last time I listened to this much hip-hop, was when I got Toby Mac's ‘Eye on It.’ And before that, it had been a long time since I listened to much rap and hip-hop at all. When I was growing up, I listened to it ALL THE TIME and owned more than 100 Christian rap tapes—yes, tapes—and CDs. I was really into it. Times change and your tastes broaden, but I still have an ear for good rap. In fact, my wife had suggested I give Lecrae a try several times. Tim Challies digs Lecrae, so she figured I ...
