PDX geeky friends, going out on Wednesday night with at least @snookca
- anyone else want to join us?
In an attempt to be unobtrusive, I was obtrusive. Not the first time a plan of mine backfired.
If we have websites, why don’t we have webapplications? (or do we and I just missed the memo?)
A year and a half after having written SMACSS, it’s great to see people still getting something out of it.
Badges? We don’t need no stinkin’ badges. Oh, we do? Okay, getting badges.
If you could easily get rid of 32k in your project, would you?
If that 32k just happened to be jQuery, would you still think that?
Finally on the west coast.
Made my connection. On to PDX!
Missed connection in IAD. Going to head to DEN but probably going to miss that connection too. I'm sure some are laughing at my predicament.
On tumblr and worried about losing your content? Use phmr.al and lose it in a week, anyways.
I need new shirts. I wonder if I’ll be able to find some decent plaid shirts in Portland.
A busy day awaits. There's a reason I'm still in bed.
In this diagram, I love how the first step to learn Emacs is to learn Vim. sachachua.com/blog/wp-conten…
I’ll be at DrupalCon *and* WebVisions in Portland next week. I get around.
The SMACSS Workshop is coming to San Diego; Colorado; and Berlin. You should come. smacss.com/workshops
Things I didn't think I'd do today: explain the word "honky" to my kids. Thanks Macklemore.
Was creating a new document in Illustrator and was happy that typing 6*12 in the width field turned into 72.
The “7 minute workout” timer. 7-min.com
Ask a programmer to review 10 lines of code, he'll find 10 issues. Ask him to do 500 lines and he'll say it looks good.
I really like the word “grommet”.
Just taught my 5 yr old: "bowh bowh. Chick. Chicka-chick-ahhhh." Heh.
I shall revel in the small victories.
When you name your HTML classes and IDs, do you describe what it is (content) or describe what it does (function)?
Nothing quite like hopping into bed and realizing the cat threw up in it.
I just couldn’t be productive on this last trip. Now need to catch up with the deluge of emails.
If you don’t take the road you’re meant to travel, life will kick your ass until you either get with the program, or die from the beating.
Back in Ottawa. I missed you.
Drupal devs are a passionate bunch. I'm looking forward to Drupalcon next week.
I think that Polish vodka sneaks up on you. “Surprise, you’re drunk.”
When you have a scab and part of it is hanging off but you can’t pull it off without it ripping the rest of the scab off. Yeah, that.
Phew! Book's done. Should be hitting shelves June 22nd. amazon.com/gp/product/098…
I should try this in next ebook I publish: Automatic Figure Numbering with CSS Counters tympanus.net/codrops/2013/0…
Schrödinger's cat applied to web development: If I don't look at it in Internet Explorer then there's a chance it looks fine.
Without wifi, Bluetooth and data turned on, the iPhone battery lasts for days.
Milka Toffee Cream bars are my new crack.
for having me speak. Now to relax and enjoy the rest of the conference. :)
Go Beyond Pixels Conference June 7, St. john's, NL. Speakers: @zeldman @jonathanstark @LeaVerou @colly @snookca @mdo
On a path of emotional self-improvement. Feels weird.
One of those rare times when I read an entire book in a day. Read amazon.com/gp/product/158…
and found it quite insightful.
Currently reading: Lean Analytics; Leadership Jazz; and Attached.
Unusually, I’m reading books. Even more unusually, I’m reading three of them concurrently. I might have a focus problem.
Read the book, Drive, and noticed how many of the ideas (autonomy, FedEx days) are implemented at Shopify.
Starting today off on the wrong foot. Going back to bed. Will try to get up on the right side of the bed next time.
Watched Les Miserables on the flight over. Well, I watched it on someone else’s screen and just read the subtitles to follow along.
That awkward place between being too tired to do anything and too awake to sleep.
They have Nortel Networks phones here in the hotel. Kinda sad. Poor Nortel.
At the airport. Ottawa to Montreal to Munich to Poznan. It's going to be a long trip.
