For whom everything sucks
Normally I’d stay away from pessimists, but Cat Morley’s Designers Who Blog looks at Things that Suck, an entertaining look from someone who sees the glass as half-empty. Everything sucks, including American life (ambulance-chasing lawyers), business (spec work in the design profession), and people (Barry Williams, a.k.a. Greg Brady). Cranky Blogger, based in Boston, also writes about why he defected from QuarkXpress to Adobe InDesign.
I can’t live with having to ﬁnd something that sucked each day—it’s the opposite of positive self-empowerment that spiritualists tell us is what we should do. But Cranky Blogger has a point with many of his posts. Every now and then, if you’re feeling down, it may pay to see things through someone else’s eyes—even those of a pessimist—and see if everything in your life sucked. Like all dialogue in the blogosphere, it’s another perspective to learn from. Posted by Jack Yan, 08:24

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
