  1. Royal Society of Chemistry’s new website

    I built the templates for the Royal Society of Chemistry’s new website, which recently launched.

  2. ‘An Actor Prepares’ by Constantin Stanislavski

    Because I’m usually immersed in web stuff, it’s interesting to read a text whose ideas…

  3. The endless musical relay race

    Dan Hill passed the musical baton on to me, an excuse to waffle about music I like. How could I refuse.

  6. Lorca: A Dream of Life by Leslie Stanton

    I scanned a couple of biographies of Federico Garcia Lorca to look for information about Blood…

  7. Classic travel

    Paul Theroux on why he travels, and Levi-Strauss’s definition of “mana”.

  12. First time floating voter

    Because I can’t face voting Labour, I’m now a floating voter. I’m trying to decide who to vote for.
