The colour of each stripe represents the temperature of a single year, ordered from the earliest available data at each location to now. All other superfluous information is removed so that the changes in temperature are seen simply and undeniably.climate-lab-book.ac.uk

Markup, friends, markup

This morning a tweet by Heydon Pickering landed in my timeline, where he quoted a text that started 10 things to learn for becoming a solid full-stack JavaScript developer, only to include a paragraph As for HTML, there's not much to learn right away and you can kind of learn as you go, but before making your frist templates, know the difference between in-line elements like <span> and how they differ from block ones like <div>.

Heydon aptly commented this with How Full Stack Development is destroying the web: a story in two pictures.(Source)

This triggered me (not his ...

Apache mod_rewrite Voodoo

This is a short documentation of a very strange unexpected behaviour I encountered in a current project.

Reset properties and values from a scss mixin

CSS code on screen

How do you 'unset' changes that a mixin has introduced to an element?

TLDR: use a reset parameter in the mixin.

Webmention Semantic Linkbacks Facepile Display Hickup solved

(or: a hurray for open source)

Wow, what a headline! :-))

There was a tiny issue with the display of "webmention" reactions in my theme that annoyed me a little bit: On older posts, the summary of that post (for example in archive view or search results) would show in the meta-info something like "23 reactions" when this post had received comments or webmentions from other sources, like reposts or likes. but on the detail view, only comments were shown and the ammount of (visible) reactions didn't match the number stated in the meta-info. I have activated a WordPress default feature ...

Hystery Repeating…

Here's a string of tweets I wrote this morning, a topic that's dear to me, but I never found the time to make a concise blog post out of it. So for now, the raw bites.
(Not to diss Flash or the Flash-developers or the creative work that got acomplished back then and helped to shape features of the web that came after. Also not to diss the JS-frameworks or -devs currently who likewise now are dabbling in stuff that the web stack by itself is only slowly beginning to adapt, waiting ...

IllHIll - Holger Lamers

In my series of "Thank you"s regarding the community around the Beyond Tellerrand Conference, next is Holger.

Not only has he done one of the epic conference shirt motives himself, but has printed several editions of the yearly shirt editions.

Holger has been on nearly every Beyond Tellerrand conference, with his screen-print machine and fine collection of shirts, caps, sweats, you name it, and for years now we always have some chats in the breaks, and usually I find myself with the urge to buy something off his table sooner ...

Web Annotation: The Web’s Conversation Layer - Lyza Danger Gardner @ Beyond Tellerrand Düsseldorf 2018


view directly on vimeo

The evolution of Web Annotation mirrors that of the Web itself, in miniature, facing off with some of the same big themes of identity, security, authority and freedom.

Next in line in my series of "thank you" posts is Lyza.

This talk -- or more precisely, the talk's topic -- is far away from the stuff I'm usually dealing with. You know, design, front end, code and applications. And yet, this also something I cherish about Beyond Tellerrand conference: To get a glimpse of what lies, well, beyond the Tellerrand, the own horizon and sometimes ...

The Dangers of Being a Web Developer - Jens Oliver Meiert @ Beyond Tellerrand Düsseldorf 2018

view directly on vimeo

I've been following Jens' output for over a decade now. Not regulary, but every now and then some of his smart observations and thoughts surface in my information stream.
So I was excited to see his name in the speakers list, and his talk about the pros and cons of being a web worker did resonate with me.

So thank you Jens, for reminding me why I am doing this for two decades now. And again, that I am not alone, even though I often feel isolated when working in clients work, feeling like I ...
