A lovely little highlight reel that Craig put together from the Responsive Day Out.
A really nice short film about the Willie Clancy Summer School. It makes me want to get back to Miltown Malbay this July.
A design fiction video depicting technology that helps and hinders in equal measure.
A beautiful short film on the amazing work being done at the Internet Archive, produced on the occasion of their 10 petabyte celebration.
Dan is collecting all of those product demo videos aimed squarely at young white single males with iPhones.
A beautiful timelapse visualisation of code commits to Flickr from 2004 to 2011.
All the videos from last year’s Breaking Development conference in Dallas are up on the site. They’re all excellent.
A short film about interaction design.
The slides and audio from Andy’s exceptional talk earlier this year at Southby, combined into one video.
It really is excellent, although he does make the mistake of pulling the “dogma” card on those who woud disagree with him, and he really doesn’t need to: his argument is strong enough to stand on its own.
Ethan’s excellent talk from last year’s An Event Apart.
In this session Ethan reviews strategies for handling trickier elements that would make even the most seasoned designer quail: stuff like advertising, complex layouts, deep navigation patterns, third-party media, and, yes, actual, honest-to-goodness content.
This is my opening talk from Smashing conference a few months back in Freiburg, where I used to live.
Marc Thiele, the lovely organiser of the Beyond Tellerand conference, needs our help recovering the video footage from this year’s event:
The HDD with all recordings (16 talks, 2 cameras) crashed. After sending the HDD to a recovery center they sent me a quote about 2832 Euro for the recovery job.
That’s about $4000. So far it’s three quarters of the way there already! Let’s see if we can hit that target.
A lovely new service from Adrian that allows you to sync up guitar tabs with videos. It’s a very impressive in-browser app.
A great short talk from Clare about Code Club.
And this is why Code Club is such a great initiative.
Peter Saville talks about the enduring appeal of his cover for Unknown Pleasures.
I like to think of all the variations and mashups as not just tributes to Joy Division, but tributes to Jocelyn Bell Burnell too.
These three talks are worth your time.
A really nicely designed site to help you catch up on some good conference talks you might have missed.
This is the talk I gave at the Webdagene conference in Norway a few weeks back. I called it Responsive Enhancement but I think the Norwegian title translates as “Improvements Through Responsive Design.”
Song-a-day Mann closed out this year’s Brooklyn Beta by singing this song (number #1381 in his ongoing series). We all sang along. It was pretty damn great.
A well-executed sci-fi short film on augmented reality and gamification.
This looks handy: a video-sharing service designed specifically to work with Silverback
A nice little profile of local Brighton photographer extraordinaire, Lomokev.
A beautiful sight: the digital and the physical interacting through glowsticks.
Clearleft have been working with Channel 4 News on their new redesign. Here’s Jon Snow explaining responsive design.
A short piece on the experiment that James conducted with Lighthouse in the foyer of the Cleareft office building, trying to show some kind of physical representation of coding.
I’m going to be attending Seb’s CreativeJS and HTML5 course in Brighton on September 13th and 14th …and I strongly suspect that it’s going to be great.
3D printing an exoskeleton for a child with arthrogryposis — technology can be so fricking awesome!
A little something to whet your appetite for dConstruct: Scott’s superb talk from this year’s Mobilism conference in Amsterdam.
Another beautiful timelapse video made from photographs taken from the International Space Station.
The music from Sunshine gets me every time.
A great talk on the nature of the web that Paul gave in Copenhagen recently.
HP “On That Cloud Thing That Everyone Else Is Talking About” | The Onion - America’s Finest News Source | Onion News Network
Pitch-perfect parody from The Onion:
HP announced they’re making a new push into cloud computing and that they totally know what that is.
In related news, I’ve ordered my “the cloud is a lie” T-shirt from James.
Organized Wonder | Curated documentaries, interviews, short films, and other top videos from around the web.
This is like a video version of Huffduffer (without the timeshifting). It’s very nicely done.
The trailer for a documentary on flutemaker Patrick Olwell. The film should be done later this year.
A beautiful short film about The Long Now Foundation’s Rosetta Project.
It’s kinda nuts that in the space of just a few months, Code Club has gone from being an idea by Clare and Linda into something with an all-star promo video.
Some of these hacks created at the Science Hack Day in Eindhoven are seriously nuts. That’s “nuts” as in “brilliant”.
In light of the recent death of Ray Bradbury, I think we should all honour his memory by revisiting this song (featuring some future-friendly headgear).
I’ll feed you grapes and Dandelion Wine and we’ll read a little Fahrenheit 69…
A satirical parody of post-singularity existence by Tom Scott inspired by Jim Munroe’s Everyone in Silico and Rudy Rucker’s Postsingular.
Bravo, Bruce, bravo.
I heard Glen Campbell’s “Like A Rhinestone Cowboy” on the radio and began absent-mindedly singing “Like a rounded corner” to it.
The video of the panel I moderated on device and network APIs on the second day of Mobilism in Amsterdam. It’s not quite as snappy as the browser panel (which, given the subject matter, is unsurprising) but it was still good fun.
Mobile Browser Panel 2012, Mobile Browser Panel at Mobilism 2012 Moderated by Jeremy Keith, this panel features Andrea Trasatti (Nokia), Andreas Bovens (O…
Here’s the video of the mobile browser panel I moderated at Mobilism in Amsterdam. These guys were really good sports to put up with my wisecracking shots for cheap laughs at their expense.
A fantastic taste of what you can expect in Seb’s Creative Coding workshop.
This really is a ridiculously smart way of keeping third-party videos scalable in responsive layouts. I’ve just implemented it on this year’s dConstruct site.
A beautiful and disturbing piece of data visualisation. The numbers are quite astonishing.
No, you’re tearing up watching a video about a boy who built his own arcade out of cardboard. I’ve just got something in my eye.
This is so cool! A short screencast about Huffduffer.
A great talk by Nicholas on what progressive enhancement means today. There’s some good ammunition in here.
Press play on each video, sit back, and relax.
Jason’s rip-roaring presentation from Defcon last year.
Mozilla will be supporting H.264 …but they’re not happy about it.
I won’t sugar-coat this pill. But we must swallow it if we are to succeed in our mobile initiatives. Failure on mobile is too likely to consign Mozilla to decline and irrelevance.
I really enjoyed Matt’s talk from Webstock. I know some people thought it might be a bit of a downer but I actually found it very inspiring.
The video that was played at Jeffrey’s inauguration into the South by Southwest Interactive Hall of Fame.
The video of my talk from Webstock, all about wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff like networks and memory.
How awesome is this!? Ariel is on TV in a promo spot for the Syfy channel …all thanks to Spacehack.org.
Neal Stephenson speaks at Solve For X on the relative timidity of scientific (and science fictional) progress in our current time.

A hackweek project from Twitter employees to create the best/worst recruitment video of all time.
Nik demos the neat interactions in Realmac’s latest piece of iOS software in this cute little video.
I loved this talk from Travis at New Adventures in Web Design, especially when he talked of the importance of Geocities and MySpace in democratising creative expression on the web.
We may have later bonded over that Ze Frank quote while in the toilet at the after-party …there may have even been hugs.
A trifecta of nice things:
- LCD Soundsystem.
The video of my presentation on digital preservation at last year’s Build conference.
Our communication methods have improved over time, from stone tablets, papyrus, and vellum through to the printing press and the World Wide Web. But while the web has democratised publishing, allowing anyone to share ideas with a global audience, it doesn’t appear to be the best medium for preserving our cultural resources: websites and documents disappear down the digital memory hole every day. This presentation will look at the scale of the problem and propose methods for tackling our collective data loss.
Kyle’s paper skills are truly impressive.
The final amalgam of Star Wars Uncut is an absolute joy to behold. I enjoyed every single moment of this.
2951 images at 12 frames per second. Each image is the “related image” of the image before according to Google image search. The first image is simply a transparent PNG.
A 1960 advertisement for IBM’s SAGE system …WOPR by another name.
To be ready for the worst so that the worst will never happen…
This is the talk I gave at An Event Apart through 2010. It’s all about interaction design with some examples from Huffduffer.
You can now hire Mandy and Keith to make gorgeous films. Their website is, unsurprisingly, beautifully crafted.
A lovely timelapse tilt-shift video of Brighton.
My short talk from Aral’s Update conference in Brighton last September. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. If I only I had a handheld mic—then I could’ve done a microphone drop at the end.
The video of the opening keynote I delivered at the Breaking Development conference in Nashville earlier this year. It expands on the One Web presentation I gave at DIBI, focusing on the language we use to talk about our approaches to web development.
Ariel is interviewed by Seth Shostak. Science! Science! Science!
Past predictions of the future in concept videos.
Gorgeous time-lapse footage from the astronauts in the International Space Station.
One of the opening lightning talks at Science Hack Day in San Francisco by Sean Herron of NASA.
A time-lapse video of Tokyo transportation.
This whole “supercut” thing …you still don’t get it, do you?
Possibly the least imaginative concept video ever made, this piece commissioned by Blackberry shows a dystopian near-future ruled by security departments run by people with very, very tired arms.
This vision thing commissioned by Microsoft shows a future-friendly networked world where content flows like water from screen to screen.
If you live in the States, please, please, for the love of the internet, write to your representative at fightforthefuture.org/pipa
This remains one of the greatest pieces of documentary footage ever filmed.
An addendum to the excellent Everything Is A Remix series, focusing on the influences on The Matrix.
I never expected to see a cross between responsive design and AR, but here ya go:
A silly mashup of HTML5 technologies: We use the canvas to capture the contents of a video element. The canvas then identifies the blue markers and overlays an iframe on top of it. The iframe contains our website (upperdog.se) which has a responsive design.
What if Mario had a portal gun?
A jQuery plugin for embedding videos in responsive layouts. Very nice …but… does it really need to require jQuery? Would somebody like to fork this and create a non-jQuery version? Thanks.
A slick little video that goes behind the scenes of the Boston Globe site.
It’s Opera …but it’s folk.
The story behind one of the winning photographs at this year’s Astronomy Photographer Of The Year that I was lucky enough to attend. This is beautiful.
Valuable advice from Slowtron on cooking perfect longpork.
We played at the bottom of the art-deco staircase in Bexhill’s De La Warr Pavilion. Sounds pretty good, if I do say so myself.
I, for one, welcome our autonomous swarming robot overlords.
Accidental camera drops serve a purpose as part of a larger narrative.
Jake’s talk at DIBI earlier this year was absolutely fantastic. It features a rape reference, a story about pissing, and a Human Centipede metaphor.
It’s also very, very informative. Watch this.
The video of my talk/rant at the DIBI conference in Newcastle/Gateshead earlier this year, for your viewing pleasure.
So that’s what they were filming when I came out of band practice the other day. This is my neighbourhood.
So long, Juno. Call me when you get to Jupiter.
