Social networks come and go, and I really like posting social media. In this section (currently called ‘Social’), I’m trying to mirror the stuff I post to social networks. There’s also just a photos page or just a notes page. You can follow what I post here using my whole site RSS feed.

This cute dog is a monster. He can open doors and has developed a habit of bursting into the room when you’re sleeping. When I (lovingly) told him he’s a monster, he struck this pose. This is why he always wins and we are very tired.

Brexit Day feels nauseating because it’s a milestone for the country in being more openly anti-immigrant and racist. Not to say the EU is necessarily better, or it’s why people voted in the referendum, but it is the effect. And I’m really sorry to those who will feel that effect.

Well I was feeling quite sleepy this morning after a mega day at #naconf yesterday. And then I properly read through all the amazingly kind feedback for my talk, and now I feel like I could run a marathon and punch through all the walls. Thank you thank you thank you ❤️

So cool to finally hear Natalie Kane speak. Learning. So. Much. #naconf
Like, I’d always known how legacy plugins make old websites hard to access, but never even thought of the impact that might have on archiving and preserving cultural works.

Friends at #naconf! I have two books to give away here today. My book, Accessibility For Everyone, and a signed copy of Heydon Pickering’s indispensable Inclusive Components. Do you have a friend that should have these books?
They go to the first person to find me (or dm me if you’re shy/can’t find me, and I’ll find you!)

Ugh to keyboard shortcuts without alternatives. Feels like I only get the tool or character I need after I’ve first accidentally switched windows, closed a tab, taken a screenshot and typed at least three obscure characters I didn’t want.
This post brought to you by how on earth do I get a € again…
FOUR attempts that took me.

Done some website tweaks. Better grid (thanks to Rachel Andrew’s editorial patterns and Michelle Barker’s clarifying talk at SOTB), bigger type for bigger viewports (love me some fat fonts), reinstating the original nav colours, and some text here and there.
