Eight years ago today I published the first of 100 posts where I’d write exactly 100 words every day:


It was fun!


I should do it again sometime.

My brother is competing in the Barkley Marathons. Again.


Last time he broke his collarbone on the second loop. #bm100

Went for burgers at Bunsen—perfect after pintage in the Duke of York and the John Hewitt!

Thanks for all those recommendations!

Got a reservation for OX tomorrow night 😋 (my birthday!), but I’m playing it by ear tonight—let me know what’s good around the Cathedral Quarter!

Going to Belfast. brb

For sidebar stuff, yes. But not for the list of search results—that’s from Bing.

I already use Duck Duck Go …which uses Bing for its search results.

Looking out over low buildings and the occasional tree stretching to a horizon that is glowing with the dawn, adding an orange haze to a clear light blue sky.

Good morning, San Francisco!

It’s no longer an issue. I was in California last month and that was fine.

But I think if you go to places like Florida in the summertime, there might be further questions to answer about tropical infectious diseases.

Leading Design San Francisco 2023

My upcoming appearance at An Event Apart next week to talk about declarative design isn’t the only upcoming trip to San Francisco in my calendar.

Two months from today I’ll be back in San Francisco for Leading Design. It’s on February 7th and 8th.

This event is long overdue. We’ve never had Leading Design in San Francisco before, but we were all set to go ahead with the inaugural SF gathering …in March 2020. We all know what happened next.

So this event will be three years in the making.

Rebacca is doing amazing work, as usual, putting together a fantastic line-up of speakers:

They’ll be sharing their insights, their stories and their ideas — as well as some of their pain from past challenges. It’s all designed to help you navigate your own leadership journey.

I’ll be there to MC the event, which is a great honour for me. And I reckon I’ll be up to the challenge, having just done the double whammy of hosting Leading Design London and Clarity back-to-back.

I would love to see you in San Francisco! If you’ve attended a Leading Design event before, then you know how transformational it can be. If you haven’t, then now is your chance.

Early bird tickets are still available until mid December, so if you’re thinking about coming, I suggest making that decision now.

If you know anyone in the bay area who’s in a design leadership position, be sure to tell them about Leading Design San Francisco—they don’t want to miss this!

Whoops! Sorry about that—should be fixed now. Thanks for the heads-up!
