long hiatus...confessional?

Sun Jun 1, 2008, 6:29 PM
  • Listening to: prodigy - baby's got a temper
  • Reading: indy young - mental models
  • Watching: my neighbour totoro
  • Playing: assassin's creed
well, dA...it's been a while, hasn't it?

i've not really been active on this account for over two years now. i keep checking in every now and again, and am usually overwhelmed by the number of outstanding pieces of art that gathered up in my devwatch. it still gives me a thrill to see new works from some of the "old guard", friends from back in the days when dA was my daily hangout.

ah, the old days...when the community was relatively small, and everything seemed so fresh and exciting. when i could name most admins off the top of my head, and really felt like this was "my" place. but things seem to have changed - or maybe it's me who has changed?

these days, i mostly spend my time uploading to my flickr account. the sheer simplicity of the submission process (particularly with the flickr uploadr tool for large batches) is so much more convenient than the burning hoops that dA makes you jump through. the ability to add notes adds a whole new dimension that is sorely lacking here...

sure, dA has introduced lots of new features, gimmicks, effects, etc over the last two years...but somehow they seem to be attempts to gloss over the simple fact that this site is fundamentally clunky. christ, ages ago i commented that it would be nice to have proper RSS feeds to keep up with journals and even individual submissions...but no joy. i'd love to have a simple API that allows me to post photographs to dA, but also show them on my own site (and no, the lousy javascript-driven excuse for a proper syndication mechanism isn't the answer). or hey, how about being able to pull feeds INTO my profile, so that at least my info remains up-to-date? i'm not talking full widgetisation like facebook...but even a simple RSS reader that i can point to my primary blog/news would do.

as much as i hate the terminology, dA feels very "web 1.0", compared to the "web 2.0" of other, more capable, more open, more flexible alternatives like flickr.

now, i have a lot invested in dA...over 1,000 deviations, masses of comments, favourites, friends. i don't want to close this account, leave it all behind...but i admit that this is now feeling more like a burden than anything else. every time i visit i get a pang of guilt for not uploading anything, not keeping up with the community itself...and most of all, i feel guilty for not actually enjoying this site as much as i used to.

my subscription runs out in august this year...and i'm now seriously pondering the possibility of not renewing it. need to look into the repercussions of this...have dA introduced a deviation cap for non-subscribers? will my older stuff vanish? i know my print account will go, but frankly in the four years or so that i've had it, i've made a grand total of ten sales, mostly to mates. this definitely doesn't justify the amount of time i spent battling with the extremely cumbersome prints management system, the tme spent finishing images for print with titles/captions and borders, etc.

anyway...we'll see how i feel over the next few months about the whole issue.

oh, and in other news, after years of vehemently refusing to abandon film, i've finally caved in and bought a dSLR - the rather expensive Canon EOS 5D. the convenience, ease of use, and most of all the quality are simply too good. yes, i feel like a traitor...but hopefully the results will more than make up for this guilty sensation.

after a long absence (just too damned busy for my own good), a small update...


+++ South by Southwest (SXSW) 2007

this thursday i'll be flying over to austin, texas, for my first pilgrimage to SXSW.

but it won't be all parties and lapdancers...as i'll be doing a power session with fellow britpack member and globe trotter ian lloyd (of accessify fame): Accessified! Practical Accessibility Fixes Any Web Developer Can Use (sunday, 11 march 2007)

There is a lot of confusion surrounding WCAG 2.0 and few developers have read or want to read the guidelines. But accessibility is, at its core, eminently achievable. This session will look at real-world accessibility problems and show how they can be fixed using tools and add-ons that are freely available. Less talk about stuffy documentation and specific checkpoints, more hands-on action to solve the underlying problems

if you're out and about in austin as well, give me a shout...i'm sure we'll be able to have a coffee and a good chat.


oh, and a piece of random dA-related trivia: my laptop will be sporting Joey-Zero's wicked skull desktop 2...

Skull Desktop 2 by Joey-Zero



+++ book signing

Web Accessibility book cover by redux

after the session, i'll also be doing a book signing...so if you enjoyed my chapter in Web Accessibility: Web Standards and Regulatory Compliance, swing by, why don't ya?



+++ redux for your ipod

hear me rant about accessibility and css in the recent .net magazine podcast, my session at WebDD (held at Microsoft UK Campus) Doing it in style: creating beautiful sites, the web standards way and the somewhat older Web Axe, Episode 33: Interview with Patrick Lauke.

Web Accessibility book cover by redux

+++ book "web accessibility: web standards and regulatory compliance" now in stores

i've had the honour of contributing a chapter on web standards redesigns on the friends of ED book Web Accessibility: Web Standards and Regulatory Compliance.

the book has now been published and is available from all good book stores and online retailers. essential reading if you have even the slightest interest in modern best practices and accessible web development.



+++ geek in the park

"Royal Leamington Spa, 27th August 2006

"Geek in the Park is a day-long get together, picnic, and discussion for anyone to do with the Internet (developers, designers, programmers… whatever!). This is a very informal affair so family and friends are very much welcome to attend too.

"The big day is taking place in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. Split in to two main events, Geek in the Park starts with The Picnic during the day, followed by The Discussion in the evening. The event starts on Sunday at noon and everything should wrap up by around 11pm."

if revelling and frolicking in the sun (hopefully) isn't enough for you, you may find some interesting points being brought up in the presentation/discussion that Bruce Lawson and i are putting together:

"Patrick and Bruce will both be discussing Where the rubber meets the road: Web Accessibility and Pragmatism."



+++ .net magazine

just realised that i completely forgot to mention this little tidbit: since issue #152, published in june this year, i'm part of the .net magazine advisory panel, alongside my esteemed friends molly holzschlag, andy budd and andy clarke (see the photographic evidence, courtesy of jon hicks).

you can find some of my (accessibility related) thoughts in that issue's lead article, "how to redesign a website". and next month's issue sees me talking about the use of colour in web design (and related accessibility caveats).



+++ holidays

i'm going to be offline for a week for a trip to verona...a trimphant return to italy, where i've spent most of my youth. will be interesting to see how life there has changed in the 13 years i haven't been there.

due to a large number of projects, i'm well behind on my deviations. 3 rolls of film to scan, 5 rolls to get developed, and very little time. i'm hoping to be able to set some time aside next month to start posting here again. i have to say, the speed aspect of digital is looking more and more tempting...

well, i'm about to get 60,000 pageviews. nothing big, no champagne celebration...just nice to know that there's a steady stream of traffic coming my way :)

and speaking of traffic, the system here just informed me that one of my earliest pieces, spirt skin revisitied, has just received its 1,000 view. weird, it's been such a long time since i created it, and i'm still using it today.

been quiet for some time due to workload, but here's a quick news round-up:

+++ @media2005

as some of you may already have gathered, i've been to the @media2005 conference in london, 9-10 june.   an amazing experience, meeting the creme de la creme of web standards and accessibility folks from around the world, including none other than Jeffrey Zeldman himself. the most intriguing aspect? most people knew me...i never thought that i'd be such a household name in the standards world. it was truly refreshing to find such luminaries as Derek Featherstone and Joe Clark recognise my name on the badge. if anything, the social aspect of Media was even more valuable than the 2 days of presentations. evidence of my wild debauchery can be found in my flickr favourites.

+++ WaSP Accessibility Task Force

another outcome of the conference: i've been asked to join the newly form Web Standards Project (WaSP) Accessibility Task Force (ATF)! see the news item and full press release.  so, i'm an "accessibility expert"? just doing my job for the last 3 or 4 years, spreading some tips and best practices on a variety of mailing lists and fora...but it seems that some of my wisdom is actually quite valuable :blush:

+++ Accessify relaunch

Ian Lloyd asked me to take charge of the up and coming relaunch of Accessify. expect the new site to launch before the end of the month.

+++ Something's rotten in the state of Denmark

and it may just be me. i'm on holiday near Billund for a week...so don't be surprised of emails/comments/etc go unanswered for a while.

over 3 years i've been here, and now another milestone: 50,000 pageviews. ok, it doesn't mean anything, of course. quality over quantity - although over the last few years i've been wondering about the disturbing trend in the opposite direction, looking at the amount of shite that gets submitted every second - furries, please put your damned crayons down and leave your line paper alone!

anyway...keep smilin :)

my newest addition: a wonderful Canon Flex RM  from 1962 in absolutely pristine condition!

also check out my latest geoURL extension for firefox


GeoURL is, in brief, a geographical coordinates to URL reverse directory.

this extension adds a new button to the browser's toolbar. if a document features either an ICBM or geo.position META element, this button opens a new tab with a listing of any GeoURL registered sites at or around the document's coordinates.


works nicely with deviantart's user pages, which do include the relevant meta elements :)

also, on the subject of extensions, you may be interested in my text size toolbar for firefox
