Writing a blog post. Could somebody adjust the meter?
Every interview with a politician about Brexit:
Presenter: “So, what happens next?”
Politician: “Well, what happened was…”
Stan & Ollie is a love letter to two comedy maestros and their enduring friendship. With hilarious support from their wives (“two double acts for the price of one”), this funny and heartwarming film is not to be missed.
Remembering that one time in 2005 when I accidentally deleted a construction company’s website while moving some files around over FTP. Simpler times maybe, but not necessarily better times.
“Alexa, show me an example of moral bankruptcy.”
Finally quit my dilly-dallying and got my tickets sorted for this year’s New Adventures conference. See you there?
Seeking a hybrid design/front-end role with an organisation instigating meaningful change where I can make a worthwhile contribution. Not interested in disrupting the world, just improving it a little. Where should I be looking? Who should I be talking to?
On this 11th day of advent, I return to 24 ways to extoll the virtues of Eleventy, my favourite software discovery of 2018.
I really want to recommend services like @netlify, but the lesson from history is to avoid pushing one particular company or product. I recommended people use Google once, and look how that turned out.
It’s @CharityConnect 2.0 launch day! I worked with the team over the summer on the design of their new themed discussion hubs, direct messaging features and post page improvements. Illustrations by @thebundad. Onwards and upwards!
This self-aggrandising video for the new set of Microsoft Office icons seems so overblown and unnecessary, verging on parody almost. I mean, they look lovely… but maybe tone it down a little!?
Did I see the Northern Lights? Yes… just about. Do I want to share the blurry, doubly exposed and incredibly noisy photos I took? Not so much.
Of to see the Northern Lights… hopefully. 🤞🏻
Feeling uplifted and inspired after a day exploring adjacent possibilities around the web and technology at Material 2018. Just what the doctor ordered.
I’m a huge fan of Inside No. 9, but just watched the live episode on iPlayer and feeling underwhelmed. It all seemed a bit obvious, with the story spoon fed to the audience and relying too heavily on pre-recorded material. Maybe it worked better on the night?
Last week: food poisoning/flu/virus.
This week: toothache and a root canal.
Eating a jacket potato, which given the last few bedridden days, is quite an achievement.
The Good Place is a quirky comedy that continually reinvents itself while keeping ethics and moral philosophy at its heart. It’s worth your time… although perhaps not an entire Sunday.
In what has become something of a tradition, preparing myself for re-entry into Britain with a final taste of Europe: a Belgian waffle and a can of Jupiler.
