Just got this in the mail from Sarah
Listening to Missy’s The Cookbook and damn. I keep rewinding a track called Can’t stop

[Friday morning] Well, the front of the house is still there, so clearly the bomb on the bus was a false alarm. Still, no harm in being jumpy. I guess we’ll be keeping an eye out for abandoned parcels in the tube ...
Several blasts in London this morning.
I’m always amazed when the European Parliament sees sense and does the right thing :-)
Annie Lennox is on right now…
Thank you Chris for pointing me to this piece on featuritis :-)
The Wall Street Journal says:
Ahhh love those logos with a swoosh. Speakup has compiled a definitive list of design clichés with a prognostic on each. I’m embarassed to admit I’m fond of bubble-head people… Still, I suppose I could always get ...
Just bumped into this quote from Voltaire
I just learned a new word:
I want to say I totally agree/love it/hate it/ but can’t be fucked to post a fully formatted comment
This is an idea as beautiful as it simple…
Winston Churchill whups Shakespeare two sets to nothing… it must be the BBC’s Tardis Tennis
Recently lost my rag with a very nice person on one of the HCI lists I subscribe to. My juvenile, agressive and totally uncalled-for behaviour was triggered by the fact that the person works at Verisign (regular r...
Attention all CSS boffins, you have until 15 July to post comments on the working draft of CSS 2.1Techno-bollocks,
Bob was livid when he found out about L8 tickets changing hands for loads of cash online. I saw him on TV a couple of days ago really laying into eBay. I’m not sure if this was Bob’s idea, but someone suggested bi...
Embedded in the back of the bag are three lightweight, tough, waterproof solar panels which generate up to 4 watts of power. This means quicker charge times!Techno-bollocks,
I’m always curious to hear any information that suppports the argument that not making your site accessible is a nonsense. The DDA Centre has nothing to do with website design, but they did have this little snippe...
I’ve been spending quite a lot of time looking at the British Museum website these past couple of months. I’ve nicked this graphic from Compass, their editor-selected presentation of 5000 significant pieces from t...
I’m on a couple of usability lists and one of them sparked a slightly strange exchange of messages a few minutes ago:Techno-bollocks,
Well, I’ve been on the verge of buying Tiger and going through the upgrade thing with the five-odd machines I’m responsible for. It looks like I’ll loose key functionality if I do (virtual switch networking) and I...Techno-bollocks,
Sunday afternoon and my eyes are still going mental. This is beginning to worry me slightly, after all I rely quite heavily on my eyes to do my job. If things haven’t improved by tomorrow morning, I think I’ll go ...
So I’m sitting here at my desk, it’s 5am and I’m trying to get some writing done, but my eyes are killing me.Family,
Just been contacted by Francis Poku at specialopsmedia.com re featuring the new ER game on Donkey.
Sitting here in MUF where I work on personal projects thinking about the structure of a huge, museum website and have just noticed that Technorati’s tags page is almost 50% non-roman.
I’m not sure whether I prefer the Flickr ‘most recent’ or ‘random’ badges, but one of the nice features of the random badge (which grabs pics at ‘random’ from your photosets) is that is reminds you of days past.
Doing some background reading for a big IA project and came across this classic from Edward Tufte
I was beginning to think the good works of the Asquith Eight were going to go unnoticed forever.
What is it with account execs? They can’t help themselves from poking the screen. One in particular had the endearing habit of using a biro which left little blue smudges…
OK everybody, today’s the day. Time to head for a polling station.
Have just spent three hours inputting all manner of stuff into the Aquent website.
Tom writes Trackback is dead. Are Comments dead too? I’m not sure I agree with his findings. To be honest, I have a problem understanding exactly how trackback works, so time to delve deeper. What is undeniable is...Techno-bollocks,
There has been a real grassroots effort by the parents of kids at Asquith Court West Hampstead. It got so bad we moved CU-1 to a new nursery (which she calls her “new nursery” which is kinda cute…).Family,
