I get it, I just don't really like it.

Couldn't agree more. Well put.

What is it you don't like about it Luke? I'd be interested to hear why it's got everyone so divided. Done any interesting self promotion work yourself? I think promoting yourself is one of the hardest things to do and I think anyone who does it so well should be commended. This work definitely gets my thumbs up. Check out Pentone (www.nickasbury.com/pentone) as well if you haven’t already seen it.

Well Scott, I can't quite put my finger on it. I certainly don't dislike it – in fact I can appreciate that its a very clever idea – its well conceived, beautifully written, precisely executed. There's enough right there to admire it for, lots of talent involved etc..

I think my gut reaction to it is a combination of feeling like i've seen that exact same idea before and also that it requires a degree of intellectual engagement I don't always want to indulge in. I think if it was presented as an individual students work my reaction might have been more gracious.

I agree self promotion is very tricky, I've done bits and pieces for myself but probably nothing i'd like to be judged for over the internet :) so maybe I should keep my trap shut in future?
