Clearly you have come here from Twitter, unless of course you haven't but for arguments sake lets assume you did.

What follows is a brief (possible waffling and moderately boring) video presentation of me and something about what I use Twitter for and what you can expect if you start following me etc.

Feedback

Feel free to leave outlandish remarks, totally unhelpful crititisms and if you feel charitable, maybe even the odd 'nice vid'. I decided to make the Twitter landing page a post just for this reason, so people could leave comments should they/you want to.

I like to consider myself a valuable and fun person to have in you're stream. I post a lot of links on typography, logo design, identity and branding. As well as whatever is hot that day and worthwhile general news.

Im pretty 'raw', in that I am myself and tend to say what I'm thinking, and tend to use various profanities in context to what I am talking about. I like to debate and argue topics. I am very pro-active on Twitter.

I don't immediately follow back all that follow me. It is logical that there will be people that follow me that I personally will not share any interests in, in these cases I tend to not follow back. I like to have meaningful associations with people on Twitter, and that means with people that I can relate to in one way or another. So please do not be offended if I don't follow you back immediately. If you take part in conversations, help RT messages, then I will definately follow you back. I make a point of adding new followers each day, but I do it on my own terms and don't feel it's right to HAVE to follow back 'just because'.
