Seasoning Templates. “Designing a template language is a lot like seasoning a dish; there’s a whole range of tastes out there.” # 6:04 pm

Personal names around the world. I’ve always felt slightly uncomfortable about firstname/lastname fields in forms. Now I know why. # 12:54 pm

Wikispaces OpenID Support. You can create new accounts there, but they haven’t hooked up association with existing accounts yet (that’s coming soon). # 9:23 am
