Interesting links or quick ideas which don’t require any comment from me.

A refreshed Speaking page

I’ve updated my Speaking page to include more conferences, more videos, and a little on my speaking requirements and preferences. I’m planning to cut down on the number of talks I give in 2014 (twelve is too many), but am always open to interesting offers and opportunities, so please get in touch if you’re organising an event.


40% off when you pre-order The Modern Web

I’m very excited to be holding a copy of my new book, The Modern Web, in my hands, and nervous to see what everyone else thinks when it goes on sale next week. If you’d like a copy you can get a whopping 40% off when you pre-order through the publisher in the next week — plus every print copy comes with a FREE eBook. I hope you’ll consider pre-ordering, and look forward (guardedly!) to hearing what you think.


Opening up the media channels

To make it easier to get access to the posts I write here I’ve recently set up pages on Facebook and Google+. I won’t beg you for a Like or +1, but if you’re feeling generous…

Of course, you can still subscribe to the RSS feed, or follow me on Twitter.


Opera Ice and Branch

Two things happened last week: news leaked that Opera are planning to launch a new browser based on WebKit; and the new discussion tool, Branch, came out of private beta. As an experiment, I want to talk about the first on the second, so I invite you to read and participate in my branch Opera Ice: New browser for Android and iPhone coming Februa….


A cover feature in .net, and a plea for help

The latest issue of .net Magazine has a cover feature on the future of CSS layouts, written by me. It’s a snapshot of the current status of the many CSS modules related to layout, updating the article of the same title I wrote for netmagazine.com in August 2011.

I’ve sent in a proposal to talk about CSS layouts at this year’s CSS Dev Conf, and would really appreciate a vote for my talk to be selected. The numbers of the talks are anonymised and randomised for each visitor, but mine is in the Cutting Edge sessions page, and is called A Trivial Shift: The CSS Layout Revolution. If you could vote for that, and for me as a speaker on the last page, I would be extremely grateful. I feel bad for asking, to be honest, but it looks like a great conference and I’d love to speak there.

Oh, also, a tutorial I wrote for a recent issue of .net has now been made available online: Chain CSS animations together with JavaScript.


Smashing Magazine CSS3 eBook

My article Adventures in the Third Dimension, published by Smashing Magazine earlier this year, is now available in one of the collected Smashing eBooks; buy Mastering CSS3 for $4.99, or get the whole Coding Bundle of five eBooks for $21.90.
