This looks like a rather good documentary about the best band in the world.

Here’s the talk I gave at Mozilla’s View Source event. I really enjoyed talking about the indie web, both from the big-picture view and the nitty gritty.
In these times of centralised services like Facebook, Twitter, and Medium, having your own website is downright disruptive. If you care about the longevity of your online presence, independent publishing is the way to go. But how can you get all the benefits of those third-party services while still owning your own data? By using the building blocks of the Indie Web, that’s how!

Boxman’s talk about complexity, reasoning, philosophy, and design is soooo good!

I think this is the best delivery of this talk I’ve ever given. It was something about being in that wonderful venue.
I got quite worked up around the the 32 minute mark.

At the 14 minute mark I had to deal with an obstreperous member of the audience. He wasn’t heckling exactly …he just had a very bad experience with web components, and I think my talk was triggering for him.

Here’s Amber’s great talk from the great Material conference last month in Iceland.
Amber Wilson worked in the field of Psychology for many years and is now a budding Web developer at a design agency in Brighton. New to Web development, she is continually eager to improve her skills.
(The silhouettes of Jessica, me, and Joschi in the front row make it look like Mystery Science Theater 3000.)

An interesting approach to digital preservation: storing digital video in the DNA of bacteria.

Here’s the video of the closing keynote I gave at the Frontend United conference in Athens.
There’s fifteen minutes of Q&A at the end where I waffle on in response to some thought-provoking ideas from the audience.

I wrote this song while my colleague Tim Berners-Lee was inventing something called “The World Wide Web” a few offices away. The song was published in 1993, when less that 100 websites existed.
The first image ever published on the web was of this band, Les Horribles Cernettes …LHC.

Time for another video from Patterns Day. Here’s Sareh Heidari walking us through Grandstand, the CSS framework at the BBC.

The latest video from Patterns Day is up—Ellen’s superb philosophical presentation: Patterns in Language, Language in Patterns.
There’s so much packed into this one, it might take more than one viewing to take it all in.
A great short talk by Tim. It’s about performance, but so much more too.

Patterns Day videos
Eleven days have passed since Patterns Day. I think I’m starting to go into withdrawal.
Fortunately there’s a way to re-live the glory. Video!
And remember, the audio is already online as a podcast.
