An artist cannot fail; it is a success to be one.”
~ Charles Horton Cooley, Major Theorists of Symbolic Interactionism
This is an interesting quote it seems he understands the creative mind well… I wonder if it was because he faced psychological challenges himself. Seems his psychosis lead to his studies and his notoriety—not so unusual for an artist.
Memories... United with Today
I am doing well… The O’Reilly text, HTML5, Step by Step, is thorough. The tutorials clear. I am contemplating about using it in my Dreamweaver course and building the course around that. I think it is more important for my students to have a sound working knowledge of HTML/XHTML and CSS. I can easily demonstrate Dreamweaver and its tools as my students review and learn these languages. O’Reilly introduced another text too. The Missing Manual for Dreamweaver C5.5 that is the second text I have found online. I requested it but no word yet from the publisher.
Adobe threw me for a loop… I read yesterday that they are introducing another piece of software for the print designer—Mute. It is in beta. I am a little confused by this introduction because Go Live and then Dreamweaver were the WYSIWYG software for print designers. That only leaves me to ponder what exactly Adobe is up to. My guess is that watching my design students learn and struggle with Dreamweaver that it is becoming too comprehensive of a piece of software for the web for the newbie and the less experience. It has become an editing program for a number of programs used for web development.
