  • MX 2004 seminar

    Notes from the Macromedia MX 2004 seminar. In particular how Dreamweaver pleases and disappoints and how Flash video gets better and better.

  • Video conferencing

    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.

  • Carousing with celebs

    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…

  • Reasons for broadband

    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.

  • 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!

  • Now it’s the other pier

    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…

  • Blog Block

    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.

  • History repeating

    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…

  • Chocks away

    On Messrs Hicks and Oxton’s new podcast, The Talk Show and Stephen Fry.

  • TBL versus Eolas

    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.

  • Line breaks in tooltips

    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).

  • The Big Dog Cometh

    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.

  • Links from Future of Web Design

    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.

  • Back my Web Typography book

    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.

  • iPhone arrives

    Like many other Apple-loving tech companies yesterday, Clearleft were huddled around MacRumours following its coverage of Steve Jobs’s keynote. And Gruff Rhys.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • @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.

  • List of pangrams

    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.
