d.Construct – the conference

Well yes – that was certainly a very, very good way to spend a weekend – there is so much that I could be talking about that I have split the weekend into three bumper packed fun packed posts – I WILL waffle so bear with it, it will be worth it!

This first half is to cover the conference itself Read more

off to d.Construct

Hooray – what turned out to be a little drink turned out to be a rather large one – this is why I am up at 2.15am trying to write and also trying to pack my bags (which I had hoped that I would have done beforehand but of cause as I fell asleep about 4 hours ago I have not done) Read more

backnetworking and after conference drinking

With just about a week to go before the much mentioned d.Construct get under way I want to thank the maker (Glenn Jones) of the d.Construct backnetwork – it really is a thing of beauty. Not only has it allowed for me it see what other people have written about the conference but also allowed me to set up a list of people I know who are attending, get yet another picture and profile of me up on the web and most greatly of all won the argument with work colleagues that microformats are very very cool indeed!

new style – what you think?

As my loyal readers will be aware (this week I actually found that I do actually have a loyal reader :>) I have tried my hand at a bit of a re-style over this past weekend. I call this theme the African Oasis and will be explaining why I have gone down this design route in a very near future post. I hope it doesn’t visually offend anyone here but as I do now have two styles (both can be plugged in and style the page correctly) I will be working on a little style switcher – while I like them there is no reason why my moods should effect how you see my website Read more

I’m off to the seaside – and a conference!

As I have been booked up to attend d.Construct for well over a month now I think its about time that I actually said something about it. In a nutshell I am rather excited. I have always been a fan of coding up things (mainly because I can’t design for toffee) and all the recent developments in the web gets me really excited and ehtused as to what may well be possible in a number of years (if not months if Yahoo! have anything to say about it) over the web and a with a web browser and this is essentually what d.Construct is going to be about – a bunch of technically minded people talking code, talking web and in my case probably talking a load of bollocks!
