The point, the essential point, is this: every family should have the chance to fight as hard as possible for their loved one’s life without going bankrupt in the process. And for those who cannot be saved, no family should be denied the knowledge that they didn’t have a chance.



Eulogy, Completed

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 19:30:45 +0000

Three years ago, almost exactly to the minute as I publish this, I delivered the eulogy at my daughter’s funeral. A few months after that, reading it again, I discovered that when I wrote it, I didn’t really finish it. So I’m publishing my daughter’s eulogy as I would have written it, had I been of clearer mind.

It has been one thousand days since our daughter took her last breath.

A quick guide to modifying SVG clipping paths to act like CSS polygon() paths can when they have percentage coordinates.



Preview Video: What Would a Human Do?

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 15:48:01 +0000

We’re about halfway through February, he said with some deliberate vagueness, and that means the launch-month special on my Udemy course “Design for Humanity” is also half-done. Sound interesting? Check out this preview video.

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 19:49:46 +0000

I’ve been spending large chunks of the last few months creating and recording a course for Udemy called “Design for Humanity”, and it’s now available.

There is a documentary about the history of the web. It’s an hour long, and now it’s free to watch.
