Mashable

July 30, 2015

Leo Laporte recently reminded me on his excellent Podcast Triangulation of the site Mashable.

Mashable is good. Better than good. It’s great. It’s going to go into my “read every day” list.

I’m also pleased that successful reading Mashable involves pressing the PgDn key. I’ve been a dabbler in building and publishing simple content-focused web pages since the mid 1990’s. Most of the time my designs expected the user to PgDn and PgUp as part of the navigation. Over and over I was advised by “real” web designers that relying on PgDn and PgUp was not good web design. Their expectations were that the web site should be more like what people see on televisions.

I’m glad the world has caught up to me.

Great Show on Large Hadron Collider

July 11, 2015

A few years ago, due to me taking a hard fall, my son and I stopped our skiing early in the week and on the way home through Geneva we stopped and toured the Large Hadron Collider. Fascinating place.

I ran across the recent show on YouTube about the re-start. Recommended viewing.
