    So the election has been announced. This, Election Blog, and other simple choices.

    Discussion of the evolution of triple tags to machine tags, in particular Flickr’s handling thereof, and how best to represent an ISBN in machine tag format.

  • Great Escape Festival day two

    Wow, what an evening. I spent the whole evening in the Hanbury Ballroom – a great little venue two streets away from my house. I was really looking forward to this night and I wasn’t disappointed.

  • Post d.Constructivism

    So d.Construct is over. It all seemed to go swimmingly well and there has been a fantastic positive response from everyone who attended.

  • April Fools

    Yesterday was a pretty good day for April Fools. In particular was the SimpleFools conspiracy and media Antarctica.

  • When I’m 94

    A few weeks ago my Great Uncle Jack passed away aged 94. Throughout Uncle Jack’s house were stacks of annotated photos. But what would happen when I’m 94 and dead and buried? The digital age could prove to be an archivist’s dream or a nightmare.

    In acknowlegement of CSS Reboot I have created Clagnut 2.0 beta in which I have started exploring APIs and thinking more about tagging.

    The final day. We only managed to squeeze in two-and-a-bit bands today, following a 40 minute queue to get into the Honey Club.

  • Just how bad is the iPhone camera?

    One of the main complaints aimed towards the iPhone is that camera is deemed to be a bit crap. So I thought I’d do a quick comparison with my old phone to see how it stands up.

  • One Day in History

    One Day in History is a one off opportunity for you to join in a mass blog for the national record. That, and I’ve joined the photo a day for a year bandwagon.

  • Hackday London

    Hackday London was fantastic. Andy Hume and I designed and developed a hack by way of a web app called Get Us Organised. It proved quite popular.

  • SxSW stream of conciousness

    I’ll expand on this post over the next few days – there’s so much going on here, all the time, that there’s barely a chance to breathe let alone put a coherent post together so this will just be bits and pieces when I get a chance.

  • Four Things

    This meme is getting really irritating isn’t it?

  • Super Furry Kraft

    Hot on the heels of Colly’s review of Super Furry Animals in Nottingham, I once more had the pleasure of seeing SFA at London’s Brixton Academy. It certainly wasn’t the mellow gig that Colly saw; this was SFA rocking away in big style.

    So I’m off to @media for the rest of this week – can’t wait! And in other news I have an article in this month’s Practical Web Design magazine.

  • London bomb blasts

    As you’ve probably heard by now, a number of explosions have gone off in the London Underground system and on a number of buses. Tony Blair has just confirmed it was a terrorist attack. Thanks to those of you IMing to see if I’m OK.

  • Quiet around here, isn’t it?

    Well it’s the usual reason – so much stuff, so little time. There’s two projects, two books and then my arch nemesis pops up.

    This year’s dConstruct is looking brilliant. We’ve got a stellar lineup, four great workshops and now you can win a ticket to the conference just by customising one of our special badges.

  • Apple Store Mania

    So the Apple Store in London has finally opened. My bro had intended to get up super early and get himself a Lucky Bag. Even if he hadn’t slept through his 6am alarm, reports indicate he would still have been 12 hours too late joining the queue.

    On presenting web typography in Slovenia, my hospitable hosts, and discovering Zemanta, a clever blog enhancement tool.

    The latest issue of Design Edge Canada magazine – a publication for Canada’s graphic design industry – was a web typography special for which I contributed top ten tips for web typography.

  • Colour blind questionnaire

    Call to colour blind readers to help out with PhD research and a point towards my contribution to 24 ways.

  • The Aeron Experience

    So I just bought a Herman Miller Aeron chair for the home office. Extravagant? Perhaps; but it was it worth it?

  • Glaucoma and photography

    Sorry not some wonderful cure, but instead a few sites that might be of interest: an great looking, accessible charity site and some approachs to presenting photos on web pages.

  • Great Escape 2007 day two

    Day two, and following the CSS failure yesterday I thought we’d camp out in the Corn Exchange all evening to ensure we saw Art Brut.

    Last Sunday I completed the inaugural Brighton marathon. It was a great day, for a good cause.

  • Seventy Penguins

    I’ve just come back from a week with Her Indoors in the West Country. While there I bought five books, all of which were Penguin paperbacks, one of which proved to be particularly fascinating.

  • A new design

    I’ve finally got around to redesigning clagnut.com.

  • @media 2007

    The media conference this year was as good as ever. Even the queues for coffee and food were quicker this year. I’ve jotted down a few tidbits gleaned from the sessions I attended.

  • The Scourge of Helvetica Neue Light

    I’m no lover of Helvetica but neither do I hate it. That said I really do have an aversion to Helvetica Neue Light, or rather an aversion to when Helvetica Neue Light is used without due thought and attention, and particularly within user interfaces.

  • SxSW 2007 wrap up

    It’s Sunday and it finally feels like I’ve caught up sleep and got over jet lag, thus enabling me to attempt a personal wrap up of my South by Southwest.
