Keep on Posting in the Free Web

The news of the shut-down of one of (my) oldest got-to places on the web, the "Fender Discussion Pages", has made me think, again, about how the web has changed. Hey Hey, my my content on the web will never die… I am a strong advocat for 'owning your content' and having a personal web…

Artists' Materials and Architects' Supplies - F.W. Devoe & Co., 1914

Ich habe ja eine große Schwäche für alles, was mit Grafik zu tun hat. Stifte, Lineale, Schablonen, Messscheiben, Papier, Pinsel - in einem Schreibwaren- oder Künstlerbedarfsladen darf man mich nicht alleine lassen, sonst werden alle Taschen vollgestopft :-) Hier ist Zeichenbedarfporno aus dem Jahr 1914: Ein Katalog der damals schon ältesten Zeichenbedarf-Ladens der Welt (nach…

Using Framework Powers For Good - Marcus Herrmann

Marcus has compiled a great collection of ways how (js) frameworks, which are often blamed for being responsible for unaccessible sites, can actually help in getting things right, a11y-wise.

A quick note to my past-self

If there’s one thing that now-me would urgently tell past-me, when starting this whole self-employed business, it is this: Beware of „cost“ focussed clients, seek the „investment“ minded ones. Adapt your communication accordingly. If your services are seen only as „cost“, no fruitful and growing relation will come out of it - and with those…
