What a difference a month and a half make. The last time I posted, SARS-CoV-2 (henceforth “Coronavirus”) was starting to become a significant news story, but I hadn’t the slightest idea what would be in store for the 45 days. Since then, many states have ordered citizens to stay home to help stem the tide of the disease.
I’m Stephen Caver. A web designer & developer in Dallas, Texas.
Originally hailing from the San Gabriel Mountains and High Desert of Southern California (hence an unusual affinity for the Joshua Tree and mountain landscapes), Stephen has been building and designing the web for the last 15 years.
He is an enthusiastic supporter of the decentralizing and expressive power of the open web and a lover of typography and minimalistic design.
If you ask me, the Dodgers were the best team in baseball in 2017. And then there was banging on trash cans.
Right now, I’m sitting in a hotel room in Austin. We came down from Dallas to attend a friend’s wedding out in Dripping Springs, and while we’re here, we’re doing the greatest hits of our time in Austin. It’s not the stereotypical spots, but the spots that are special to us.
This website is not perfect.
The open web is a husk of its former self, conceded to the corporate ventures whose aim is to collect as much data as possible and leverage it in the most profitable manner possible. I want to reclaim my portion of it that dream of an open web of sharing ideas, culture, and imagination.
