  • Too much information

    Even now I don’t know who I was talking to and he didn’t know me, but he did know my name, phone number and presumably my address. He also knew that I had a Belkin router and NTL broadband. How?

  • Wireless beer

    All is good in the world. My fave local, the Sidewinder has just been kitted out with free wi-fi. How tempting will it be to tinker away in the pub garden with a cooling glass of wheat beer?

  • 2006 – Where did it go?

    I’ve just being perusing the 2006 Review edition of Grafik magazine and came across some mini-interviews with graphic design luminaries. I thought they wrapped up the year nicely, so I’ve copied their questions here and provided my own answers.

  • 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.

  • Stand back

    A quick review of the amazing Public Lettering walk website.

  • Ginger snap

    Oof. Someone was in die Hundehutte last night. A quiet evening in the Earth and Stars, iChatting to Dunstan (still in San Francisco) with Andy and Jeremy, ended up an early morning in the Spiegeltent. And there’s more Biscuit for y’all.

  • J.Spaceman Acoustic Mainlines

    Last night I went to see J.Spaceman on his Acoustic Mainlines tour, at Brighton’s newly refurbished Komedia. These are my thoughts on the evening.

  • Geekend 2

    This time the location was closer to home, in Brighton. Dunstan, Jon, Patrick, Drew, Rachel (and Bethany) joined Jeremy, Jessica, Andy and me for a splendid weekend of geek chat, free wifi, pricey booze and Asian cuisine.

  • The Aeron Experience

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

  • Guy Garvey is a god

    I’ve just come back from seeing Elbow play their third night at the Roundhouse in Camden. They didn’t disappoint.

  • 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.

  • Great Escape 2007 day three

    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.

  • Great Escape 2007 day one

    The Great Escape has begun. The second year of ‘Europe’s leading new music festival’ has come to Brighton again, with even more bands and venues.

    Help save BBC 6 Music by getting Joy Division Oven Gloves to number 6 in the singles charts.

    Clearleft’s first desktop application is now available! Silverback is a handy piece of software to make ‘guerilla’ usability testing a breeze.

  • d.Construct schedule and podcast

    As you’ve probably heard by now, we at Clearleft are organising another d.Construct conference, set for Friday 8th September this year. We’ve just released the schedule and published a podcast.

  • Moving CSS typography forward

    The CSS3 font module has come back to life, and web designers have been asked for the their wish lists. Here’s mine.

  • Professional body for web designers

    Mark Boulton has written a thoughtful post on having a professional body for web design. I commented in detail there, but I wanted to expand my thoughts on the subject, particularly on certification and the need for such an organisation.

  • 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.
