Well, last night I went to my first Thanksgiving celebration. The miraculous Shannon was able to provide a HUGE dinner for 25 of her closest friends, in an amazing display of extreme nurturing.
It's a lovely holiday, seemingly unaffected by commercialism, where people genuinely get together to have a think about the things they are grateful for, and to celebrate a big harvest - in whatever form that takes. Having lots of red wine also helps the jovial nature of the event.
It feels nice to have been invited into a home at this time of year, and three cheers for the host & hostess, and their wonderful hospitality.
I'm an Australian designer who specialises in digital and cultural work. Most of my career thus far has been on the web, but I'm excited that it's starting to creep out into the real world.
I am the founder of Museum in a Box, making interactive museum objects with simple, fun tech, for wide-as-possible distribution, and I own a company called Good, Form & Spectacle, making design in service to cultural heritage for clients like The British Museum, MoMA, and the Wellcome Trust.
