Web Essentials 05 Podcasts Coming In

“Keep an eye on that podcast page “

The Web Essentials 05 Podcast page is offering up goodies as I write with Molly Holzschlag’s Web Essentials 05 Keynote, Celik Tantek’s talk on The Elements of Meaningful XHTML and Jeffrey Veen’s Beyond Usability: Designing the Complete User Experience.

I’d just like to thank the people involved in this event for involving us in the event as well. Its about the message after all and not necessarily the money generated by the large entry fees a lot of us couldn’t afford.

So keep an eye on that podcast page and there will be more arriving very soon no doubt. I’ll post them over on Pig Pen as they come up or as I get over to notice them as well.

HIP #9 A Chance To Get Back In There

“Bare with us and as we get time and opportunity sooner rather than later “

Tomorrow being Friday its finally time for me to get back into a day’s work on the Hunter Island Press Inc project I’m doing for my BSA309 Multimedia Professional Placement unit this semester. The final report is submitted by October 14 but the project itself will go into the summer I guess. I’m really excited about these guys because as they get assets up there and get a feel for interviewing and blogging they have the potential to actually be bloody interesting. I think there’s never enough interesting in the world or on the World Wide Web.

So it’ll be hard to sleep tonight (I’ve been busy on other things) and instead of counting sheep I’ll be thinking of ways to output information via MySQL and where to source content and graphics. Yes its just a shell at the moment with a sad palette. But bare with us and as we get time and opportunity sooner rather than later this will start to look a lot slicker and sweeter for sure.

Thanks a lot to my partner Linden Langdon for being my saving angel on this project as without her re-energising it I may have well come close to flunking the unit altogether.
