I spoke my brains on the Venturi’s Voice podcast. It’s a random walk through topics like sharing, writing, publishing, and bizzzzznis.
In which I have a conversation with a polar bear.
Very well-mannered species …I’ll miss them when they’re gone.
I frequently see web developers struggling to become better, but without a path or any indication of clear direction. This repository is an attempt to sharing my experiences, and any contributions, that can help provide such a direction.
It’s broken down into four parts:
- 10 Domains of Web Development
- Events and Interaction
- Internationalization / Localization
- Understandability / Content
- Interviewing for Web Developers
- Productivity for Web Developers
- Web Training Hierarchy
- Level 1 - Writing Code
- Level 2 - Accessibility and Security
- Level 3 - Architecture
- Level 4 - Innovation
I don’t necessarily agree with everything here (and I really don’t like the “rockstar” labelling), but that’s okay:
Anything written here is open to debate and challenges are encouraged.
A podcast chat in which I ramble on about web stuff.
In which I attempt to answer some questions raised in the reading of Resilient Web Design.
Interviews with the designers who make on-screen interfaces for sci-fi films.
I really enjoyed chatting to Ade on The Design Jones podcast. I rambled on about design, the web, and all that stuff.
Eric asked me some questions and I was only too happy to give some answers.
A trip down memory lane with Håkon.
It’s not like the web has been done. This is history in the making. The web is only 25 years old. It’s going to be around for a long time, so there are lots of things to develop.
Ignacio asked me some questions. I was happy to answer them.
Aaron interviews Simon who’s organising the upcoming EnhanceConf which is going to be ruddy good.
An interview with Andy, reminiscing about the early days of Clearleft.
I really enjoyed chatting with the guys on the The Dirt podcast about progressive enhancement, but my goodness; it certainly sounds like I need to switch to decaf! Yappity-yapity-yap!
I’m an advocate for progressive enhancement. Tom Dale is not. But even though we may disagree on that, there’s a lot to like in his sensible, balanced answers to some sensationalist linkbaity questions.
It’s not that the pace of innovation on the Web is slower, it’s just solving a problem that is an order of magnitude more challenging than how to build and distribute trusted apps for a single platform. As we saw on the desktop, it may take a few years to catch up to all of the capabilities of a native, proprietary platform, but in terms of the impact it will have on humanity, forgive me for not losing sleep if we have to wait a few years for it to arrive.
Here’s a fun little interview I did recently, mostly about work stuff. It’s available for your huffduffing pleasure.
One thing that really bothers me is the way I repeatedly said “guys” to refer to my colleagues at Clearleft. I must stop doing that.
This is a great summation of the origins of Science Hack Day from Ariel.
This episode of Click on the BBC World Service does a great job of distilling some of the ideas and themes from this year’s dConstruct.
Two years ago dConstruct’s theme was “Playing with the Future”. Last year it was “Communicating with Machines”. This year’s theme is “Living with the Network”. Click interviews artists, writers, hackers and coders about surveillance, connected devices, big data, and whether the ideals of the internet have been too far corrupted for them ever to be preserved.
