I first started making videos and posting them on YouTube just for the fun of it and to share my video game highlights with my friends at school, this was back in 2009. YouTube was the easiest place to share the clips online and I didn't think much of it at the time...now creating YouTube videos is my full time job!
I love the pursuit of a book. Perusing the selection of a bookshop, running my finger along the spines and looking at the artwork and the blurbs. Judging every book by its cover.

These days I always get likes on all my posts, and I usually get a bunch of comments and shares too among my 16,000 fans. I've worked out some key ingredients that are pretty much guaranteed to put a spark into your Facebook page and get people talking. I've made them easy to remember too, because they are the 3 Qs.

Bitcoin, the darling of libertarian, fiat money avoiders, has plunged nearly 40% in a few short weeks. After an incredible run this year, soaring like a rocket from a bit more than $200 to $1,203 between October and late November, bitcoin has collapse back down to $752.
At Amnesty we work with people that quite literally put their lives on the line in exposing human rights abuses. They often do so at great risks to themselves and their families and it is vital that the space for confidential communications is protected and respected. This is why it is critical that the UK government delivers a full open and transparent investigation into our concerns.
If you take a moment to think about every piece of paper you handle in a day, you'll see the paper soon stacks up. Here, for example, are just some of the paper items that passed through my hands today...

So would future website creation be led by non-professional amateurs and hobbyists using DIY solutions? If so, what role would professional designers play in this evolving market?
hanks to years of unrequited love; a great deal of which came from the girls in my year and partly because of what Britney Spears did to my heart - I have come to a conclusion. We no longer secretly yearn for objects of our affection in the way that we used to.
