    It's very hard for me to work in a project or idea I don't believe in. Belief in an idea or project depend on a lot of things, ethics and politics being among them.

    Usually work I can't believe in is dealt in two ways:

    1. a polite no, for cases where doing the work would be against my ethical and political principles;
    2. a very very high fee, for cases where I could believe in the work but I really need to be convinced.

    This really helps me focus on stuff I like to do.

    This is very interesting Ben!

    There's a subversive undertone in the act of selling a brand without a product that really makes me think about conceptual art.

    Pelican has a great set of features: imports from Wordpress, supports multi-language, has plugins and it's written in Python.

    I'm in the middle of switching from WP and it is quite simple.

    Coming from an architecture background I always find odd that the coordination and managing roles in the software world are usually reserved to engineers. I think it's temporary. Maybe a by-product of the fast pace with which technology evolves, which puts an emphasis on engineering, and definitely a very long lack of interest from traditional designers in software projects. This is now starting to change.

    One might even formulate a law:

    "The probability of a form being wiped clean following an invalid input submission is inversely proportional to its size"
