I'm John Gilbert

I am a creative that has focused on digital for the last 15 years. I started when Macromedia was new and Visual Basic 4 was hot. I taught myself the ropes, studied Computer Science in college (dropped out) and ended up getting a degree in design. Luckily, the internet came along, and my passion for the web was born. I have been combineing my interests in design and technology since day one of my career and I don't intend to do anything different in the future.

10 Most Hated Jobs – funny (or not) that of the top 10 I do 6 of them on a weekly basis but don’t hate my job

I was just reading through CNBC.com and found an interesting article on the ten most hated jobs. As I was clicking through each job I found myself saying “Crap. I do 5 or 6 of these on a weekly basis but I don’t even remotely hate my job.” I think this article goes to show how hard/stressful being in the digital advertising industry can become. We have to be a lot of things for a lot of people. It also shows that if we do “it” right we have a lot to offer and lot to be thankful for. I guess each job on their own has its downside but what position doesn’t. We are in an industry that is redefining itself on a weekly basis. Just a simple thought from what was probably meant to be a traffic driving article for an big site.
