I feel as though I’m unnecessarily hard on myself when I'm ill. As though taking time off work causes me to see myself as a total slacker, constantly apologising for sitting at home not being able to teach. At the same time though, if I go in, I’ll make other people sick and make myself worse.

This is the Internet Based Post-Contemporary Artwork Title Generator. I have decided to note down ten combinations created using it.
I call this the Internet Based Post-Contemporary Artwork Title Generator Game… and by game, I mean, a structured form of play, undertaken for the purpose of education and ultimately enjoyment.

If you only post things your friends like, are you really posting the things you like? Do you ever share content because you like it and want to share it for yourself, rather than for others? I often use social media sites as a form of archiving, in the past, I regretted not doing so and actually it works quite well. You’ll find people with similar interests to you surface that way.
I constantly share branded content, especially at this time of year. Some of the videos I’ve shared recently are absolutely incredible and definitely worthy of being shared, not necessarily for love of the brand itself but for the sheer amount of work involved. Have a look at these top ten TV and cinema ads from campaign, they’re made for sharing on Facebook or Twitter, they’re made to start a discussion, they exist to make you feel something and to share that something with someone else.
People make a brand and a brand doesn’t exist without culture. We’re living in a world where our culture is digital, whether we care to admit it or not. Sharing is a fantastic way of acknowledging the people who enhance our culture, it’s not all smoke and mirrors to get us to buy products. We’re smarter consumers and we definitely require smarter brands, brands who have something more to offer us. Keep up to date with sites like Adweek, there’s always content worth sharing on there. Here’s a top 5 commercial list for this week (05.12.2014 to 12.12.2014).
I usually share the things I like, rather than the things I think other people will like. So, bearing that in mind, here’s a cute (branded) video for all of you.

'The concept of T-shaped skills, or T-shaped persons is a metaphor used in job recruitment to describe the abilities of persons in the workforce. The vertical bar on the T represents the depth of related skills and expertise in a single field, whereas the horizontal bar is the ability to collaborate across disciplines with experts in other areas and to apply knowledge in areas of expertise other than one's own. The earliest reference is by David Guest in 1991.' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-shaped_skills)
