20 November 2008

Yesterday afternoon after the MAX Awards show (one of my favourites, Scrapblog, won RIA and People’s choice) we had the chance to look into some things the Adobe folks are currently working on. Jen deHaan has covert this perfectly on Flashenthusiast.com, so no need for me to repeat this here. :-) Right after the Peeks […]

Adobe MAX: Errors and Accessibility

20 November 2008

After yesterday’s keynote I had two more sessions to attend. The first one was “Web Application Development: The Error of Our Ways” with Robert Hoekman Jr. I saw him last year on a similar topic after I had bought his first book “Designing the Obvious”, and he didn’t disappoint me at that time. 2008 he’s […]

Air New Zealand’s new ePass

1 November 2008

Normally I love Air New Zealand. Although they sometimes seem to be a little under-staffed, the overall travel experience is always great. And they develop amazing things for the web – for example How far can I go? and Home sweet as. But today I thought they might have gone a bit over the top […]

Back to blogging

1 November 2008

I haven’t been blogging for quite some time. Reasons for this are many, but non of them is a really good one. As a main reason could count that I’ve spent most of the winter in Europe and used the time overseas to reflect the things I was doing and the life I was living […]
