Little sparkles from social media

Posted by on Aug 25, 2014 in digital citizenship | 0 comments

Last night I congratulated a Facebook friend who announced that they were expecting their first baby in a few months. This particular connection worked with me on a project team for a few months several years back when Facebook was still a new thing and we were early adopters. Earlier this week I sat beside another acquaintance from my web/social media networks who was blossoming with her second baby due in October. Both events for me were special moments of joy – the most recent in a...

Fresh beginnings

As I frequently check out the site link of new followers on twitter, it has been bothering me for a while that this blog has been neglected for so long.

To start the week

Posted by on May 7, 2012 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

A great blog post from Reading Room UK (via @sarah_vick) about five web design myths. Obviously I like it because  I so strongly agree with 1,2 and 5. Probably the most surprising one is 3 about text re-size and there is food for thought in 4 about content linking. The other article I meant to blog about last week was this article from BBC UK titled Colour: Different points of hue. One of the areas I’m curious about is the degree to which our cultural background affects how we perceive...
