Content When I started my career in digital media, I had already dealt with the combined moniker of designer / scripter. Having launched myself out of an Interactive Media Masters Degree with a bit of lingo scripting learnt, just after three years on a design degree and I'd started creating interactive design combining the two disciplines.

I decided I was a specialist in interactive design. Someone who could make graphic design interactable.

Content Jellyfish are awesome. They also don't need a Photoshop filter to get you fluid and flowing fleets of colour although they do need the help of a coloured background and side lighting. And so it is that looking through some of my photos from East Asia that I thought I'd post a homage to these organisms that happen to have their mouths and anus in the same part of their bell-shaped bodies.

Here are some photos, the first ones being from Tokyo's Sunshine International Aquarium in Ikebukuro and the second set from Hong Kong's Ocean Park.

Content Work talk in the blogosphere often revolves around making money online. Whilst this invariably reflects the multitude of get-rich-quick-schemes involving affiliate marketing, running your own blog or selling your own product, in a broader sense I see it encompassing the paid-for service industry too.

Selling Services

People sell their consultancy, production skills, and journalistic endeavours (to name a few) directly to paying clients. Delivery online, whether it be via email or content depository via a web service, has become second nature. For people who utilise the internet for work, location isn't therefore as much of an issue.

Content I'm currently just over the halfway mark for a sizeable sixteen months off living and traveling in East Asia. Whilst it would be grand to say that the whole time, I'm on the road seeing and experiencing amazing things, I'm actually spending more time living in Hong Kong working from home. Not that living in Hong Kong is that bad. (Note: The photo below is from Pulau Tioman, Malaysia and not Hong Kong!)

Pulau Tioman

In fact, I wouldn't have it any other way since even taking a couple of weeks out every other month to visit another East Asian country takes it toll. The fact that I'm staying out in the peaceful New Territories countryside is a godsend, if a little inconvenient, amenities-wise, in comparison to the pollution and bustle of the city.
