It was such a pleasure and an honour to watch Saron at work—she did an amazing job!
Sacha Baron Cohen’s Keynote Address at ADL’s 2019 Never Is Now Summit on Anti-Semitism and Hate | Anti-Defamation League
On the internet, everything can appear equally legitimate. Breitbart resembles the BBC. The fictitious Protocols of the Elders of Zion look as valid as an ADL report. And the rantings of a lunatic seem as credible as the findings of a Nobel Prize winner. We have lost, it seems, a shared sense of the basic facts upon which democracy depends.
A very handy web component from Paul—this works exactly like a regular YouTube embed, but is much more performant.
Cassie’s excellent talk on SVG animation is well worth your time.
I had a chat with Vitaly for half an hour about all things webby. It was fun!
Myself and Jessica joining in some reels and jigs.
This is a clever use of the
srcdoc attribute on iframes.
Here’s the opening keynote I gave at Frontend United in Utrecht a few weeks back.
Here’s the video of the talk I gave at State Of The Browser last year. The audio is a bit out of sync with the video.
The talk is called The Web Is Agreement. It’s ostensibly about web standards, but I used that as a jumping off point for talking about life, the universe, and everything.
I enjoyed giving this talk, but I’ve only ever given it this one time. If you know of any events where this talk would be a good fit, let me know.
Here he is talking about custom properties in CSS as part of his Making Future Interfaces video series.
This is a fascinating story of psychological manipulation and internal politics. It leaves me feeling queasy about the amount of power wielded by individuals in one single organisation.
I missed this when it was first posted three years ago, but now I think I’ll be revisiting this 12 minute interview every few months.
Everything that Kyle says here is spot on, nuanced, and thoughtful. He talks about abstraction, maintainability, learning, and complexity.
I want a transcript of the whole thing.
Cassie’s terrific talk from Bytes Conf, featuring some wild CSS experiments.
(Conference organisers—you want Cassie on your stage!)
This is the lovely little film about our WorldWideWeb hack project. It was shown yesterday at CERN during the Web@30 celebrations. That was quite a special moment.
This documentary, made entirely with archive footage, looks like it will be amazing! I really hope I get to see it in a cinema.
Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 65mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 takes us straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission—the one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names.
Aw! What about Michael Collins‽ He’s always the Ringo of the mission, even though he was the coolest dude.
Charlotte’s opening talk at the Material conference was really excellent—a great narrative at the intersection of code and creativity.
Here’s the talk I gave recently about indie web building blocks.
There’s fifteen minutes of Q&A starting around the 35 minute mark. People asked some great questions!
