2012 has been a big year both personally and professionally. Full of ups and downs, new projects and grand adventures, from lighting pop-up stores and fashion showrooms to going on BlogTour London. 2012 has been a terrific year thanks in no small part to all of you. From those who read my blog occassionally, or follow me on tumblr or chatted with me on twitter, social media has played an enormous role in making my 2012 a success. So thank you for taking the time to read my content in all of the various places I share it.
Ending the Year in Quiet
I've decided to take a brief sabbatical from all things social media from today (12/21) until January 2nd. It's not that I don't love checking in every day and keeping up with the ongoing conversations, looking at the amazing photos or writing the content. It's just that I need a little quiet to close out my year. These last 10 days of 2012 are a chance for me to take stock of priorities and set up new goals for 2013 (not to mention get organized). So I will be returning in 2013 with all new content and a fresh perspective. I think it's important to take time away and refresh and that's exactly what I plan to do until the new working year begins.
Thank you all so much again for reading what I've been writing. A few house keeping things before I close the post.
- I'm not unreachable, just taking a break from social media. If you need to email me go for it. If you've never contacted me before, go ahead and use the contact me page (it get's pushed to my inbox).
- The jamesbedell.com/thinking page is a goner. I've decided to take it down and streamline the site. Now, you can head to jamesbedell.com and find the latest blog posts right on the homepage. To review the blog specifically head to jamesbedell.com/blog.
- You'll be seeing some "best of" content posted on a schedule. Via tumblr and twitter I'll be sharing links to the posts that have received the most interest over the year.
Thank you all so much for making 2012 amazing. I'll see you all in 2013!
If you've ever ridden the NYC subway one of the things you've probably noticed is that our stations and platforms are lit like an 80's prison movie. Long fluorescent tubes run the length of the station platform casting a ghastly glow along the platform edge.
Despite the countless ways there are to improve this ghastly situation, it is the status quo and so it's not seen as a priority.
These color changing LEDs create an awesome multi-color glow along the platform, creating thrilling ambient light, along with a beautiful decorative element of substantial form.
Of all of the possible gestures of solidarity and memory, the candlelight vigil remains the most powerful.Read More
