So, it’s a few days after Christmas. I had some money to spare. Every year or two I have a fun side project. In previous years it’s been guitars, amps or traditional archery. This year it’s been upgrading my AK-74. As my upgrades near completion, I found myself with a little extra cash and I
A good long while ago, I discovered that contenteditable was a pretty nifty attribute to play with, especially when you get CSS involved. Then I stumbled upon the scoped attribute which you can apply to a <style>block, which isolates styles to a specific container. And then I wrote a jQuery plugin. Well, now it’s gotten
So, not too long ago I had the opportunity to sit down with Miguel Miguelez and Nuno Linhares, both from SDL. Over the course of one or several beers, we discussed the Frenchness of the French, super awesome tattoo ideas, and content injection. And we came up with an idea which I’d like to share.
In the last year or so, “Responsive Design” has become quite the buzzword. It’s not just industry jargon or a little article on A List Apart anymore. Project managers, business analysts, salesmen and marketing executives are tossing around the term “Responsive Design”. Heck, a year ago I was explaining the concept to an executive, and

It’s an HTML5 developer’s dream. I don’t claim nearly the experience around Media Manager that I would Tridion, but I
I’ve been working on a new Tridion implementation for a client, and for the last few days all I’ve been doing is making schemas. No, not content schemas. Embeddable schemas. Metadata schemas. Schemas that aren’t even necessarily specific to the client. Just things that are necessary to make bigger, more complex schemas. And then today
Recently I was given a web project— but not just any type of web project. The kind we hate most. The one that’s best-labeled a “future awful idea”. The one developers will try to kill —with fire. The kind of project with the same sad story as that Pokemon tattoo on your cousin’s lower back. You
A while back I wrote about an amazing discovery I’d made in which I learned that stylesheets are part of the DOM. I mentioned some properties to play with for fun and profit, and then heartily went on my way. Today I’d like to explore the CSSOM with a little more discipline, and also explain
I’ve been working for the last month or two on some super cool mobile templates for a client. As I’ve mentioned in other posts, we’ve pulled out all of the awesome for this. If Tridion were a person, it would be peeing its kilt with excitement every day — even though it definitely isn’t wearing
