Ego 2.0 – the new finally live.

So it has been just over a month since my promise that I would finally get my new portfolio site out the door. So while work has been nuts it is amazing how having your wife’s in-laws in town for two weeks can give you a laser like focus on getting work like this done. So last night I finally pulled the trigger and pushed the new site live. The final work tally for launch was 35 clients, 73 projects, 203 designs, 35 videos and over 35 pages of copy. I am not kidding myself that this is some great design achievement but it is certainly a lot better than the 10 year old site I hadn’t updated in 8 months. It’s the first step in the vision I have for the site and I have a lot more work that is going to be added, more functionality and the open source section will be coming back with a lot of new code.

    AS2 actually since I started it two years ago and had enough delays already. The majority of the work for me was completely re-writing every line of code behind the scenes to create something just short of my own CMS, I plans to move all of it to AS3 in the near future since I think I only have to fix about 80 lines of code.
