A profile in The Guardian of the Internet Archive and my hero, Brewster Kahle (who also pops up in the comments).
Charles Arthur analyses the data from Google’s woeful history of shutting down its services.
So if you want to know when Google Keep, opened for business on 21 March 2013, will probably shut - again, assuming Google decides it’s just not working - then, the mean suggests the answer is: 18 March 2017. That’s about long enough for you to cram lots of information that you might rely on into it; and also long enough for Google to discover that, well, people aren’t using it to the extent that it hoped.
The slides from Andy’s excellent pragmatic talk on performance and aggressive enhancement at the Responsive Day Out.
A great breakdown of mobile traffic to The Guardian website over time.
The Guardian’s front-end patterns library. The modules section contains their equivalent of a pattern primer. Very nice!
A really terrific piece about wireframing for responsive designs. Again, it’s all about the prototypes.
Celebrating the work of the tireless men and women who shorten headlines so they’ll fit on your iPhone.
Remember when I linked to the Github repository of The Guardian’s front-end team? Well, now—if you’ll pardon the mixing of metaphors—you can start to kick the tyres of the fruits of their labour. This beta site shows where their experiments with responsive design might lead.
Those clever chaps at The Guardian are experimenting with some mobile-first responsive design. Here’s how it’s going so far.
A great write-up of the latest additions to the Guardian's Open Platform API including a lukewarm assessment of Semantic Web technologies like RDF.
This is a news website article about a scientific finding | Martin Robbins | Science | guardian.co.uk
A perfect parody lampooning the shallow and cowardly reporting of most so-called science stories by the press (I'm looking at you, BBC).
A great Fisking by Ben of (very silly, IMHO) morally panicked Guardian article on Foursquare.
A handy interface onto The Guardian's new API.
Trust Tom to use the Guardian's new API for the purpose of answering those pressing questions, like "is fuckknuckle *really* the new cockbadger?"
The Guardian has released a shedload of data for us to play with. Go forth and hack.
A lovely shout-out to Clearleft from the BBC: "Along with other awesome UK companies like ClearLeft, we hope the work we're doing influences more web companies to adopt more best practice, like following the principle of 'progressive enhancement'."
Aleks and Bobbie are putting on GameCamp in London on May 2nd. Should be fun.
There's a new technology podcast available from The Guardian. It's hosted by Aleks and judging from the first episode, it's going to be very good indeed.
Bobbie draws up a list of UK startups to keep an eye on. Moo is here of course but so is Dopplr.
The front page of The Guardian website has been redesigned with some good use of typography and colour. Shame it's so wide though.
Can you really get by in Ireland by just speaking Irish? Not in Dublin, it seems. I'd love to see the TV show that this article is based on.
A truly frightening description of what can happen to any person in Britain today.
Ajax in The Guardian.
The Guardian blog is keeping a running update on events in London.
Amazing news! George Bush says, "Let's get rid of all subsidies together. Let's join hands as wealthy industrialised nations and say to the world, we're going to get rid of all our subsidies together."
In the Guardian: Yahoo is the new Google. Google is the new Yahoo.
