  • British Sea Power

    It was hot, it was sweaty and it absolutely bloody rocked. Jeremy, Jessica and I were privileged to be among the 150 folks squeezed into Brighton’s Freebutt to see British Sea Power perform one of their famous intimate gigs.

  • UKbloggers

    Over at UKbloggers we have started collecting submissions for our geographical directory of British blogs.

  • A musical baton

    I’ve been passed a musical baton. If it’s good enough for Stuart, it’s good enough for me, so here goes: Total volume of music files on my computer: 14.9 Gb. The last CD I bought was: The last actual CD I bought was British Sea Power’s…

  • Boozing tips

  • I’ve been away

    Why I haven’t been blogging much recently and what I’ve missed over the past few weeks. Highlights include Todd Dominey’s PGA Open Championship and Phantom Power, the new album from Super Furry Animals. Also a brief critique of the new Pixelsurgeon site.

  • In the Box

    “It’s not because he’s American and it’s not because the British are evil. Fundamentally, simply, basically, finally he’s just hated because he’s a twat.” On an unrelated note, get yerself over to Whitespace, a great new blog focussing…

  • Win win win

    The Guardian have launched a Best British Blog compo. Join me in forgetting to get your entry in by 6 September and thereby failing to win an otherwise guaranteed grand.

  • Headings defining document structure

    Tomas Jogin has started an interesting discussion reflecting how heading level choices can give a different perception of document structure. I’m suggesting that adding hidden headings for document clarity would not be a bad thing.

  • Fear the Pie!

    I love this current poster campaign from the British Heart Foundation.

  • Footie mad

    So Euro 2004 is almost upon us and the hysteria of England’s imminent success (no really) is starting to pervade even the most level-headed of British bloggers.

  • Amalgamation

    Blogdex is a project of the MIT media laboratory built to ‘harness the power of personal news, amalgamating and organizing personal news content into one navigable source’. Translated this means it trawls approx 12,000 weblogs and lists which links are most popular…

  • Spruce Ringsting

    According to BBC News, the family of the late Johnny Cash have vetoed use of the song Ring of Fire in an advert for haemorrhoid-relief products. Cash’s daughter Rosanne said: The song is about the transformative power of love and that’s what it has always meant to…

  • Talking type at SxSW

    First thing on Tuesday morning, I’ll be presenting Web Typography Sucks with the venerable Mark Boulton. Also that day is Helvetica the Movie. And on Saturday there’s the Great British Booze-up.

  • Top Tunes 2003

    I’ve recently been enjoying Asterisk’s Song of the Week feature, so much so that I may ‘borrow’ the idea. In the meantime, here’s the some personal recommendations by way of the track listing to my compilation ‘The Best Songs I Bought In 2003…

  • Mozilla is mine

    I have recently come to the conclusion that, as a Windows user, Mozilla has ‘officially’ become my browser of choice. For some time now, we’ve known about its superior support for The Standards, so why has it taken me so long to change? Because at home I…

  • Democracy strikes

    With the world on edge, nervously scratching its head, a heartening blow was struck for democracy in Parliament last night. Tony Blair’s Iraqi war strategy was shaken to the core when 121 Labour backbenchers joined a cross-party revolt to tell the prime minister that…

  • Taking on the Music Industry

    An interesting approach to album recording and release by hitherto unsigned band, Morton Valence, circumventing the usual record label route.

  • International Standard Serial Number

    A year ago I applied for an ISSN for Clagnut; my request was turned down. Weblogs are eligible for ISSN under the existing guidelines and I explain how there are increasingly compelling practical reasons for assigning ISSN to weblogs.

  • 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.

  • CSS tabs

    Mark Pilgrim recently published his version of tabs build with HTML lists and CSS. So I thought I’d publish my version of as well.

  • Googlewhacking

    Googlewhacking may well be the latest time-wasting trend for Googlenauts, and it’s even more pointless than Googlefight. It is mildly addictive though. One locates a whack by finding two (and only two) words which, when entered into Google , receive a single result.…

  • Bloody BT

    Did you know that the pillar of corporate scum that is BT claims to have invented hyperlinking? Nor did I, but Prodigy do. They were unlucky enough to be the first ISP attacked by BT in the courts for abusing the US patent it submitted in 1979. A decision on whether the case…

  • Stand back

    A quick review of the amazing Public Lettering walk website.

  • 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…

  • Fastest rollovers

    Pixy demonstrates superfast rollovers simply by shifting the position of a single image. Antenna demonstrates the power of the human mind.

  • On your marks…

    Judging of the Guardian Best British Blog began this weekend. And yes, it was the kick up the backside I needed to get the About page up. This compo has other ramifications, particularly if you should win (like you may have to spend the prize money to pay for the extra…

  • Against the Digital Economy Bill

    The House of Lords recently passed the Digital Economy Bill. The bill panders to big players in the music industry is being hurried through without due democratic process before the election. This is what I wrote to my MP.

  • 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.

  • Ecstatic

    What a couple of days it’s been for Champions League football. As Chelsea finally beat Arsenal after 17 previous attempts I was whirling around like a dervish, veins coursing with adrenalin and endorphins.

  • Five minute chocolate mug cake

    Something for the weekend, or indeed any other time of the week; a version of this recipe seems to have achieved viral status. I made the recipe last night. It’s incredibly easy and it works a treat.

  • Dissatisfied

    Well it seems someone isn’t too keen on The Guardian’s blog competition. Tom argues that the compo goes against the essence of blogging; that we shouldn’t be judging people’s outpouring of thoughts, emotions and ideas. On the face of it, this…

  • British Blog awards 2003

    The results of the Guardian competition are out (actually they were announced about a week ago): Best design Winner: The Big Smoker
    Highly commended: The Bunker Best use of photography Winner: NYCLondon
    Highly commended: Apparently Nothing and…

  • No mention of mark-up

    Breeze is an elegant new minimalist theme for Mozilla. Googlebar is another great add-in from mozdev (source of the afore-mentioned Checky). It’s just like the IE Google toolbar, but for Mozilla. I’m a bit of a foodie, so it won’t come as much…

  • Compo results

    The Guardian UK weblogs competition results are out. Obviously I didn’t win, however Scary Duck did. Highly commended were iMakeContent and Greenfairydotcom; runners up were blogjam, LinkMachineGo and Plenty of Taste. Congratulations to all the winners, all the entries…

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Facing up to Fonts this Friday

    This Friday, 24th October 2008, I’ll be presenting as part of Head, a three-day global web conference. My talk is entitled Facing up to Fonts in which I get to talk more about web typography for the first time in ages. Update: Win a ticket!

  • VE Day and the US D-Day Museum

    Today is the 60th anniversary of VE Day, yet World War II was not completely over until four months later and VJ Day. This reminded me of my trip to New Orleans earlier this year where my good friend Dave took me to the National D-Day Museum.

  • 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.

  • 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.
