  • Ego charting

    Technorati recently released cool charty goodness for any keyword search, and what’s more you can post the graphs right into your blog. And then there’s egoSurf.

  • Reserved comment names

    Inspired by some recent nefarious posts, I have reserved my name for all future comments. From now on all comments posted by ‘Rich’ will be from me. The system is far from foolproof, but for now I’m satisfied that one would have to put at least some effort in…

  • 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.

  • Multimap redesign

    I’ve been somewhat quiet of late, which as usual means busy, busy, busy. And without further ado, the fruits of my labour can be found at Multimap.com – a complete rebuild using Web standards, semantic HTML and CSS layout.

  • Real life savings through Web standards

    Following on from Doug Bowman’s recent article on potential bandwidth savings for Microsoft, in which he recounts using CSS to rebuild Microsoft’s home page, I’d like to restate here the points I made in my Ten Questions interview with the Web Standards Group.…

    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!

  • Praise Indeed

    I make no excuse for this piece of flagrant trumpet blowing. Eric Meyer writes: How have I gone this long without encountering Clagnut ? It’s the kind of design that I can sort of vaguely see in my head when I sit down to do something, but when I do it, the end result…

  • Skillswap went typographic

    Back in January I was part of a double bill with Jon Tan, entitled Skillswap goes typographic. It went down really well so I thought I’d better tie it all together here.

  • 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.

  • I ran a marathon

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

  • 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.

  • Blacklisting comment spam

    Everyone’s talking about it, everyone’s getting it: the evil that is comment spam. I have implemented a blacklist technique which I’ve added to a growing decentralised web of trust.

  • 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.

  • Multimap is hiring

    Multimap is looking to hire a junior web designer/developer to assist the Multimap.com public site development team. The job is based in London.

  • Full-text searching

    Recently I’ve been playing around with MySQL full-text searching, including integrating it as Clagnut’s search engine. It’s good, but there’s a few limitations I had to get around.

  • 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…

  • Web Typography panel at SxSW

    I’m proud to have been part of the Web Typography panel at SxSW 2009 alongside Jon Tan, Ian Coyle, Elliot Jay Stocks & Samantha Warren. I’ve jotted down some of the topics we discussed, and some we talked about beforehand but didn’t have time for.

  • New (to me) music

    This Easter weekend I managed to spend some quality time alone with my hi-fi and some choice vinyl. At the time I put together a list of stuff to buy – help me choose.

  • South by Southwest panel picker

    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.

  • A View on the Ocean

    And so to another site launch – I hereby present A View on the Ocean, an artist’s journal; a diaristic collection of photographs, comments, stories and music by photographer Andrew Robert Fox.

  • Top Tunes 2018

    Back after a decidedly long hiatus, here’s a compilation of favourite songs I bought this year, and a damn fine year it was too.

  • Taking on the Tour

    Two remarkable men attempt to ride the Tour course in the same number of days as the race itself. And Jeff’s book is five years old.

  • Top Tunes 2006

    Here’s the track listing to my annual compilation, this year cleverly titled as ‘The Best Songs I Bought In 2006 Ever’. It was another good year.

  • @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 titbits gleaned from the sessions I attended.

  • TypeCon 2010

    TypeCon2010 in Los Angeles was my first typography conference. It felt good. I was made welcome, made new friends, renewed old acquaintances and learned a lot.
