I recently wrote my first WordPress plugin, Swatchify, which takes the featured image from a post and generates a color palette from it. As part of this process I ran the plugin against all of the posts in my archive.

The result of this process is that all of my posts are now grouped by colors, hex codes, and dominant colors.

Whenever Swatchify runs it takes the palette generated and associates the post with the color taxonomies I programmed into it.

Open Office Layouts are Dumb

Read the Article Here!

I hate open workspaces. I think they are distracting, hinder my productivity, cause me to worry more about people judging me than my work performance.

I excel when I can sit down, not worry about prying eyes, and focus on the task at hand rather than the conversation my coworkers are having 15 feet away.

Turns out, I’m not the only one that has had these exact sentiments and highly values my private office. In fact, there are MANY others.

Read this article for a nice explanation of why the open office layout trend is stupid.
