Warrior not worrier

I'd so like to have this as a stand for my Wacom Intuos pen, even better if the toy soldier figure was actually a civilian, nerd-type run-of-the-mill illustrator-kind-of-person. Hey 3D printers of the world, can we make that happen? Title inspired by a James Victore sticker; image/montage by me


Add post format X to posts with category Y

Recently I decided to use the WordPress post formats in my blog. If you're not familiar with post formats, hop over to the wordpress codex and read about them there. Back? Good. :-) I now have the ability to use different layouts for different kinds of posts, like "video", "image" or "status" - there are…


Fiddling with the Indie Web, pt4

Wow, Steward Langridge, inventor of the pingback mechanism, has enabled webmentions on his blog, as he tweeted just a couple of hours ago. I think this is great signal for the webmention idea, and reminds me to keep on tweaking the webmention/indie web thing here in my blog, where I have the comfort of using…


3D Cube in CSS

CSS - Cascading Style Sheets - has come a long way from being the "paint" on HTMLs structure. In the relativly short span of one afternoon I was able to create a threedimensional cube, that, with a little help of some JavaScript glued onto some input fields, can be rotated along its X-, Y-, and…


Enhance progressively

progressive enhancement is not about offering all functionality; progressive enhancement is about making sure that your core functionality is available to everyone. Everything after that is, well, an enhancement (the clue is in the name). Jeremy Keith It is more often than not that I find myself in discussions about this exact point: I want…


Babysteps in IndieWeb, pt3

Next up is the test if I can pull in comments from silos like Facebook or Twitter back to the blog post that got shared there. Let's raise the voodoo bar a bit now… this on twitter


Babysteps in IndieWeb, pt2

This is just a test, if my webmention endpoint actually is working. If not, I'll better apply for an account at webmention.io :-)


Babysteps in IndieWeb

The second day of the 2014 Border:None conference sees me sitting in a brewery cellar, and putting some h-entry and other microformats in the good ol' webrocker theme. Somewhat embarrising is having Mr Jeremy Keith looking at the source code which actually is kind of, hm, messy, having grown more or less organically for more…


The Color Purple

Today, my blog's color scheme changed to a certain color: It will not be enough. Nothing will ever be enough. But it will be something zeldman.com As I tweeted earlier: @meyerweb Your work made all the difference for me when I started way back then. Thank you so much. My thoughts are with you. #663399Becca…


On Critical Mass

(This is more of a braindump than it is a structured blog post and a cross post of frankfurt.opendevicelab.net) At the second ODL admin meetup, held at the Garage Bilk coworking space one day after the 2014 Beyond Tellerrand conference in Düsseldorf, we discussed, or better started to discuss, the possible need of some kind…


BTConfed, again

Wow. If there's the need to describe my feelings after attending last week's Beyond Tellerrand conference, it's this. Wow. When I first attended my first ever Web-Conference only four years ago, it happened to be the first Beyond Tellerrand, and I've been to all BTConfs that followed, because, well, they're awesome. Addictive. It is hard…


Git for Complete Beginners

Through Anselm Hannemann's newsletter 'Web Development Reading List' I found this very informative and easy to follow step-by-step guide to Git: The goal of this book is to get you started with version control and Git as quickly and easily as possible. Unlike other books about this topic, this one doesn't require a master's degree…
