  1. Is modern web design too like print design?

    I’ve been wondering whether we’ve lost the “webness” of web design, whether it’s all too dull and influenced by print design.




  1. Royal Society - Trailblazing

    A little thin in content so far, and overly flashy for me, and the original articles are all but hidden. But otherwise a good start on making this old material more accessible.

  2. Mr Bojangles: Worshipping workshops

    I enjoy brainstorming workshoppy things but they always feel like a sport that I’m doing badly at, watching the sporty boys have fun.

  3. Cormac McCarthy on The Road -

    All good, but mainly for “I hear people talking about going on a vacation or something and I think, what is that about? … My perfect day is sitting in a room with some blank paper … That’s gold and anything else is just a waste of time.”

    I am, right now, entirely caught up and on schedule with the maths (modelling with sequences). I even understand bits of it.

    @spaceboy I keep meaning to start a page keeping track of people who didn't do [their amazing thing] until they were quite old. For comfort.

    @blech I figured out it must be something along those lines, but wasn't sure exactly. Ta.
