3 Ideas (Public + Private)
Location:Kansas City, MO, USA
Education:several years in college, no degree as of yet, most recently 2 years as graphic design major
Employment:I don't think my employment or financial status is really anyone's business, particularly online. Answering this question seems to just inspire spammers. I hate...absolutely HATE spam.
Interests:very diverse, ranging from cooking, to reading, to PC gaming, music, politics, and everything in between
Achievements:Raising my son is probably my biggest achievement. He's grown into a fine young man. I'm very proud of him. Other achievements pale in comparison. I am an FCC licensed amateur radio operator (tech plus). I have continued to chase after knowledge and consider a day without having learned something....a day wasted. Living, loving, and learning, that's my mantra.
Expertise:Jack of all trades, master of none
About Me:43 year old mother, wife, friend, daughter, sister, political activist, addicted to learning and discovery, open-minded, liberal, sarcastic, sometimes cynical, almost always analytical, a realistic while still a progressive thinker, with a light-hearted sense of humor that flies in the face of all I just said :)

Not my idea, but...Joost is one good example of the new media industry, but another, and better example I think, might be where the viewer has an interactive roll in the outcome of the films. [over 16 years ago]

What does the new media industry look like?

The only thing I would change would be the text color. Blue shades are complimentary to orange shades, so some shade of blue would be best in replacing the black text. Blue also suits part of the word, we associate "waves" often with the color blue. Actually a blue fade, either dark to light or light to dark from top to bottom would give it a little more eye "pizazz," so to speak, while still maintaining an intellectual aire of dignity. Simple and memorable are important aspects, not bland. [over 16 years ago]

What do you think of this logo for an Emagazine on idea generation?

Perhaps rather than reporting the news that we already have reported from multiple channels, such as television and the internet, they should report news that we DON'T have much access to, such as GOOD news. Or involve the communities more somehow, through having "lay reporters" that cover local news. People like seeing their words in print. You only have to look at web forums to see that. Perhaps more people would buy a newspaper if they felt that they had some input/contribution. [over 16 years ago]

What should newspapers be doing if they want to survive?
