That makes sense—svg isn’t a replaced element.

My gut feeling is that the download attribute would be handy on the img element (and other replaced elements too?) but I don’t have a use case to hand.

I shall ponder further.

I know this isn’t the use case you’re asking about, but if download were available on the img element, would it makes sense to also make it available on inline SVGs? (I do have a use case I can share for that.)

Thanks so much, Jared!

Maybe I could cajole you into being interviewed for the podcast sometime? 😉

Goodnight, Zürich!

Goodnight, Zürich!

Tuesday, August 24th, 2021


I’m speaking at a conference this week. But unlike all the conference talks I’ve done for the past year and a half, this one won’t be online. I’m going to Zürich.

I have to admit, when I was first contacted about speaking at a real, honest-to-goodness in-person event, I assumed that things would be in a better state by the end of August 2021. The delta variant has somewhat scuppered the predicted trajectory of The Situation.

Still, this isn’t quite like going to speak at an event in 2020. I’m double-vaccinated for one thing. And although this event will be held indoors, the numbers are going to be halved and every attendee will need to show proof of vaccination along with their conference ticket. That helps to put my mind at ease.

But as the event draws nearer, I must admit to feeling uneasy. There’ll be airports and airplanes. I’m not looking forward to dealing with those. But I am looking forward to seeing some lovely people on the other end.

I’m very glad that @TimBerners_Lee sent this email to the comp.sys.next.announce mailing list thirty years ago:

No, you’re characteristically thoughtful!

Seriously, I just linked to your post and used the adjective “thoughtful” to describe it: https://adactio.com/links/18352

(But saying “Might turn this series into my first NFT!” on the same day that the IPCC climate change report came out …yikes! NFTs are quite literally fuel for that fire.)
