Yesterday I watched Gary Hustwit's documentary "Helvetica" (available for free on Vimeo until tomorrow).

Highly recommend it - but, be warned:
Helvetica is white & western, absolutely no diversity.

I am so glad Paula Scher was one to the 2 (two!) women in the documentary.

I've spent the last 6 months (trying and finally succeeding) reading Namwali Serpell's The Old Drift.
Can't get it out of my mind now.

My very first web experience was Geocities. So many years ago!

I made my own website to solve a problem for our busy family: a website full of our favourite dinner recipes.

Before leaving work I would check the website, write a shopping list and do the shopping on my way to pick up the kids from daycare.

These days I use Trello. And the kids have their own kids.

Today I've discovered Dengue Fever's fusion of Cambodian pop and Phychedelic Rock. If my coding is wonky it's because my laptop is dancing.

Making cute little unicode arrows before all links with target="_blank" on the next site we're launching.

Today someone told me I ought to change my profile picture on LinkedIn.
I think I might do so eventually.

Bookmarked tweets aren't that useful if you never see them again - you might want access to them on your computer:

Today I built a tiny website using only text, images, html markup and css and deployed it via Netlify.
