When people ask me when they should use tables, my stock answer is “for tabular data”. I think I’ll make an exception for this one. Warning: turn volume down or your brain will turn to jelly! Via Ajaxian.
According to TechCrunch it looks as if MySpace are looking to follow Facebook down the route of an open platform for developers. I can’t say I’m particularly surprised (given the success Facebook’s experienced) but I wonder if this is perhaps too little too late. At the moment MySpace still beats Facebook in the stats and […]
The countdown is on to the big move. Web Services have two brand new servers to host all the websites (GO, intranet, corporate website and more) and to use for development. Not content with just moving the sites over, we’re also implementing changes to the way we manage projects! And all this is happening on […]
I appreciate that I risk sounding like a Google groupie, but they do keep coming out with cool new features for their products! Their latest announcement is for the directions feature of Google Maps. Now instead of typing in addresses, you can just right click to set start and finish points and to change the […]
Answers on a postcard… I wonder how much time and effort it takes to make a video like this. Is it the kind of thing Edge Hill could produce? Via Mike Huntington.
A comment on my last post from a journalist at the Essex Chronicle got me thinking. Obviously he’s using Google Alerts to track topics of interest, in that case possibly “World Scout Jamboree” or maybe “Chelmsford” or “Hylands Park” (hello if this triggers the alert again!). I know other journalists do this too – I […]

I’ll be working, unpaid, for up to 12 hours a day, for three weeks with only a few days off. I’ll […]
I’ve been looking at Facebook Applications (and the Platform) since they launched and have been amazed by the massive growth of some of them. The Guardian summarises some issues that developers are facing in coping with the demand of millions of users in a short period of time. Also links to Marc Andreessen’s blog which […]
Hannah Donovan is Head Creative at London based Last.fm, the online music recommendation site. Last.fm has been in the headlines following its acquisition by CBS. I thought Hannah was the most refreshing and to-the-point speaker at the event. The audience quickly warmed to her when she used a rude word to describe MySpace. The presentation […]
This was a presentation for developers rather than designers so I was expecting a lot of information to go over my head, it did, but enough has stuck to write a short post. Nate Koechley is a Yahoo! frontend engineer and designer based in San Francisco. The bulk of his presentation was based around a […]
