Notes from the Macromedia MX 2004 seminar. In particular how Dreamweaver pleases and disappoints and how Flash video gets better and better.
Recently I’ve been playing around with the webcam & audio conversation features in Microsoft’s latest instant messenger client. I have to say I was impressed, particularly with the audio. And for a short time only, there is a webcam feed on this site.
Gaz Combes, he of Supergrass fame, lives just around the corner from me. So when, the other Sunday, we both turned up at my local, it was not really a surprise. But what is the etiquette in this situation? Here he is: a neighbour, but also the lead singer of a rock band. One…
Video of the final minute of the stage. Update: Cav wins Stage 8 too!
Household broadband purchasers are more pragmatic then ISPs seem to think. And if marketeers think that filling broadband with whizzy stuff is a good idea, then their swing-top bin will soon overflow.
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!
Brighton’s other pier, the Palace Pier, has now suffered it’s own disaster, catching fire in a rather big way. Sad as it is, I haven’t got quite as much sympathy with the Palace Pier as I do with the West Pier. The Palace Pier is nowhere near as old, and is…
Hmm. I’m struggling for things to write at the moment – I’m just feeling like I’ve got little to say. For example, I nearly decided to omit mentioning the little bloggers’ meet up we had in London at the weekend.
I was just glancing through a journal Jeffrey Veen wrote in 1991, whilst he was studying theatre in London. Almost exactly twelve years later, he could have lifted an entry straight from this week’s papers: The U.S. declared war and attacked Iraq tonight. Bush will…
On Messrs Hicks and Oxton’s new podcast, The Talk Show and Stephen Fry.
Some quick thoughts from Clearlefties on the new Google +1 button.
As Director of the W3C Tim Berners-Lee has written a typically cogent letter to the US Patent and Trademark Office in protest against the Eolas ‘906 Patent.
So I was perusing the Guardian’s World Cup fixtures guide and noticed a little feature I’d never seen before: line breaks in tooltips. Also, a brief note on information design for events changing over time (goals being scored for example).
Since I knackered my Achilles tendon in December, I’ve been getting back into cycling and mountain biking in particular. The Brighton Big Dog race is on in August and uses the same tracks I now ride most weeks. We’ve entered a Clearleft team.
FOWD last wednesday was an enjoyable affair. I didn’t get a huge amount out of the conference itself, but there was some good stuff and I culled a few good links along the way.
I’m writing a book on Web Typography which I’m hoping to crowdfund on Kickstarter. It’ll be a handbook for designing beautiful and effective typography in modern websites, and I hope it’ll be available in time for Ampersand conference this year.
Like many other Apple-loving tech companies yesterday, Clearleft were huddled around MacRumours following its coverage of Steve Jobs’s keynote. And Gruff Rhys.
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.
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.
A few opinions which seem to reflect my own entirely uninformed thoughts on the iPad.
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.
I didn’t think I’d care much, but there’s a few things I need to get off my chest.
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.
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.
There used to be a page on Wikipedia listing pangrams in various languages. This was deleted yesterday. Pangrams can be occasioanlly useful for designers, so I’ve resurrected the page of here, pretty much as it was in Wikipedia.
