How I'm writing

Articles Jan 24, 2024 (Feb 1, 2024) Loading...

I'm :gardening.

Expect my stuff on this site to grow and change and be re-arranged. Expect words and toys and videos and transcripts and lists and tools. I hope that you'll find this collection to be an interesting place to explore.

Don't expect the text to stay static. These are not magazine articles, this collection is not a blog or a diary or a textbook.

In my more ambitious imaginings, this site is an experience. I hope that it is, :like some gardens, a pleasant place to explore.

Cheers –


...more details...

I'm building a few facilities for readers; some to make these pages more-explorable, some to make them more usable:

  • Backlinks – you'll find a button at the bottom of each page showing what pages link in to the page you're on.
  • Search – the search tool will let you tun a fuzzy search of most of the text of the site. Use your browser to search the page.
  • Dynamic footnotes – I'm using nutshell from Nicky Case to give you anchors which expand to give you more text, but which might be a distraction to the flow of the words. Links with a : in front mean you get to glance at related content, rather than re-routing your exploration to see it.
  • Canonical links – will help me to make pages and variants without breaking links, though you may find that the text may have changed.
  • Change indicators – you can see when the page last changed, and I'll indicate state and edits :somewhere
  • Comments and contributions – I hope that my readers want to share their thoughts. Comments are on for subscribers, and I can give you editing access for deeper and more collaborative stuff.
  • Expanding sections – I'll put some topics in sections that fold up (or unfold, depending on mood) so that you can get them out of the way (or bring them up) as you need.
  • Change control – I'll put big revisions on GitHub.
  • Table of contents – planned for big pages
  • Lots of ways in – this isn't a book, to be read from start to end. It's a web.
  • Tags – each page will have several tags, each tag will take you to a list of other pages with the same tag, and the tags will arise as we go.
  • Print to pdf – when I sort the CSS, you'll find that the current state of the page will print nicely to pdf.


Visible Changes

Currently, italicised text at the top. This is likely to change.
