Back off man, I know HTML
Hi there. I'm Charlie.
I build websites and try to make the web a better place.
I've got principles oozing out of my eyeballs.
- Putting people before code.
- Replacing Capitalism with something kinder.
- Choosing simple solutions before technological masturbation.
- Building robust sites before jumping at fragile frameworks.
- Using tech for the greater good.
- Telling Facebook to fuck off.
This feels like a very important survey.
Oh man, I got switched to the new Twitter interface. Is it meant to feel like a laggy, buggy piece of shit, or is that an intentional aesthetic?
holy star shit 😳
It’s 2019 and I just heard a speaker tell a design audience that “there’s research that shows you only need 5-8 users to find 85% of the problems in a design.”— Jared Spool (@jmspool) July 16, 2019

Sorry folks that I haven't been around of late. I think I hit a stress and depression patch and didn't realise it. Danger signs for my future self: not cycling, not going out, feeling tired all. the. time.

Where the hell have we gone wrong? Why can't we just use JSX or Vue as a templating language (to help manage components) & deliver raw HTML?
A vital guide to recognising font styles.

The original Apollo computer code.
This issue is very relevant and will hopefully receive some love from the maintainers.
I am absolutely LOVING this podcast series from the BBC World Service. So many interviews and stories about the Apollo program and the first moon landing. Well worth subscribing to!
It's nearly 50 years since Apollo 11 landed on the Moon. You can follow the mission in realtime, half a century later.
Back in Berlin. ♥️🎉
You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
Yes please, this.
