CSS and System Fonts

This weekend I read a post about techniques to get Apple’s new San Francisco font into your CSS. Since San Francisco is only just being added to iOS and OS X, it can be a bit tricky to get hold of it in Safari. What struck me was the use…

Obligatory Redesign Post

Screen shots showing four of the states of the menu of which I am so proud but which has questionable usability, as opposed to the h1 style, which is unquestionably unusable. Note that one of those screen shots is really a view of the printed page, where the menu is…

On the Mis-Named Mobilegeddon

Speaking for National Association of Government Web Professionals

Much as I would like to say that I will be speaking at the National Association of Government Web Professionals (NAGW, I don’t know where the “P” went, perhaps it was originally “Webmasters?”) conference in September, I won’t be. I was, however, asked to do a separate webinar for members…
