    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.

  • SxSW wrap up

    Yes I know I’ve been back for nearly a week, which means you’ll be totally fed up with SxSW posts, so this one might just be for my benefit.

    Design Week had an editorial highlighting the demise of craft skills and typography in college curricula. It reminded me that courses teaching web design in the UK rarely include such skills in the first place. So where are the good courses?

  • Machine tags and ISBNs

    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.
