thoughts on software, technology, fatherhood, and other stuff

OK OK, wayyyyy too long


Yes, it's been way too long! My excuse? 1. Web Directions South - amazingly excellent, best event yet. Apparently most twittered event in Australia to date. 2. Launch of Scroll magazine 3. Final preparation for Web Directions East in Tokyo...

Yes, it's been a long time


I know it's been a long time since I posted here. My excuse? Lots happening elsewhere. First up, Web Directions South is shaping up bigger and better than ever. Amazing speakers and workshops, partiesand much else besides. Discount pricing ends...

Annals of transport safety cluelessness


Flying back from Tokyo this week, I picked up, inside the customs area having checked in, some makeup and so forth as a present. My final destination was Sydney, though for whatever reason, my flight stopped in at Cairns for...

In fairness to the SCOTUS


Having stuck it to the US Supreme court a couple of times (no doubt the good justices are a-quakin in their boots) I must observe that a recent death penalty decision may represent a low water mark for the death...

Speaking dates in Japan in June


As mentioned a few weeks back, in a couple of weeks I'll be speaking in Tokyo at a number of events. I'll be doing two microformats related presentations, as well as a CSS 3 and experimental CSS presentation. First up,...

Holiday destination Question


Any thoughts from folks - either from personal experience, or even by reputation? Skiing holiday - Denver Colorado, or Salt Lake City, Utah? One constraint is it needs to be a major city, rather than a resort like Aspen -...

On marriage


Pop quiz In which year did the US Supreme Court hold that a law in the state of Virginia (similar to laws in dozens of states) that provided "a penalty of up to five years in prison and a clause:...



Who said this? Simply because an execution method may result in pain, either by accident or as an inescapable consequence of death, does not establish the sort of "objectively intolerable risk of harm" that qualifies as cruel and unusual. ......



Apart from the new arrival, one of the reasons for the slow posting (ie almost non existent) posting of late is that few weeks ago I moved house, and am still waiting for the broadband to be transferred. In the...

Please welcome Scarlett Bess Allsopp Lander


Born 8.41 am March 31st 2008, a truly beautiful creature - mum and Scarlett both very well - all rather tired, john

Lack of character


Yo Geoff, strikes me that the definition of "lack of character" is bashing anyone, particularly women. Wanker. OK, so why this particularly riles me is that said wanker is having a go at someone who publicly comes forward to say...

Radio silence


Just back from Web Directions North, which was simply amazing. But essentially 18 hours a day for a week. I'll have much to write here I hope in coming weeks, as I had so many rich conversations with fantastic folks...



the iPod Touch just really became the phoneless iPhone. OK, gotta plonk down another $20 for the software, but that's the price of early adoption it would seem ;-) Downloading...

and now for something completely different
