It’s been a busy week in Brighton. Tantek was in town for a few days, which is always a recipe for enjoyable shenanigans.
The latter half of the week has been a whirlwind of different events. There was a Skillswap on Wednesday and on Thursday, I gave a talk at the Async meet-up, which was quite productive. It gave me a chance to marshall some of my thoughts on responsive enhancement.
The week finished with Layer Tennis. I was honoured—and somewhat intimidated—to be asked to provide the commentary for the Moss vs. Whalen match. Holy crap! Those guys are talented. I mean, I knew that anyway but to see them produce the goods under such a tight deadline was quite something.
Meanwhile, I just blathered some words into a textarea. When it was all done, I read back what I had written and it’s actually not that bad:
- There Will Be Blood
- Bacon Nation
- Zoom In. Now Enhance.
- It Ain’t Meat, Babe
- Longpork Is For Closers
- Bass. How Low Can You Go?
- Dead Rising
- Troll Man
- Craven Applause
It was a somewhat stressful exercise in writing on demand, but it was a fun way to finish up the week.
