Now I’m not into April Fool’s, so the only “prank” I’m going to play is that I won’t tell you what I’m working on. What I will tell you is that I will be at PAX East in Boston next weekend building my current project on site. So if you are going, come by and say hi.
Even though I don’t like April Fool’s Day, I did like this latest creation by Sean and Steph Mayo.

I was and am still impressed with the passion, patience and talent that the people interviewed have.
AFOL: A Blocumentary is probably one of my favorite documentaries about creativity and community.
Have a Sound Day.
