  • 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.

  • Apostrophe s

    Why is the humble apostrophe so regularly misused and why are hairdressers so often the culprits? Ladie’s perm’s at half price (As the Guardian readers’ editor points out, journalists who should know better also get it wrong.) Apostrophes have two…

  • d.Construct Thursday socials

    The d.Construct conference in Brighton is approaching rapidly (don’t I just know it; so much to do, so little time) and many attendees are coming down on the Thursday. As such, attendees are looking for places and people to meet on Thursday evening.

  • Google’s Smart Tags

    Remember the brou ha ha when Microsoft announced its Smart Tags? Smart Tags would automatically add links into your documents, whether you liked it or not. Well Zeldman reports that the latest Google toolbar does exactly that, for example a street address will link to Google…

  • See me speak

    I’m presenting Wireframing in a Web 2.0 World with James Box at South by Southwest, with a warm-up Skillswap in Brighton next week. I’m also involved with Singularity, an online conference to be held in October.

  • Crunch

    The real reason the West Pier collapsed. Nice one Bricey. More on the Glasshaus collapse. It seems that Wrox’s parent company, Peer Information, is the one to be liquidated, along with all its assets. Many ex-employees have posted their details on Graphic Design…

    Pop-ups aren’t going away. They are leaving virtual space and manifesting themselves on our streets in blue and yellow and green bibs.

    I love to cook. Part of the pleasure of cooking is working with fine ingredients which is why I choose to tell you that this week is national organic week.

    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.

    It’s still August and SxSW is already appearing over the horizon. You can buy tickets now, but the big news is that this year’s panel picker is now live. Also, we’ve got sage advice for getting the most out of dConstruct 2007.

  • Deviating from process

    We at Clearleft are starting to enjoy deviating from process. Skipping steps, changing the order, adding extra steps, using different tools. This all keeps us fresh, but it also helps eliminate the production line approach it’s so easy to fall into.

  • AppleCareless

    If you’re wondering why Clagnut has been so quiet in 2005, blame AppleCare.

  • Scattered notes from Dots

    The inaugural Dots conference provided a very enjoyable day on the loose subject of innovation. I was in a mood to listen rather than take notes but I did jot down a few bits and bobs. Here they are made into some sentences.

  • But why, some say, the moon?

    Returning from speaking at the Web App Summit, we watched the brilliant Frost/Nixon and I was reminded of JFK’s fantastic 1962 Moon speech to Rice University.

  • On Lomography

    The Lomographic Society website has much to admire from a design and marketing perspective, and it encourages a great photographic philosophy. But is a 35mm camera really the right medium for a snap-happy ethos, or does digital win hands down?

  • Why I haven’t bought anything from iTunes

    As yet, I haven’t bought anything from the iTunes Music Store. The reasons for my ambivalence to iTMS are threefold: value, tangibility and information. Let me explain…

  • @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.
