Creating a responsive grid

I thought I'd have a go at creating a simple responsive grid. You're welcome to have a look at it on CodePen.…


The Voices

So familiar
So divergent
So unwelcome
Voices
A melange
Spewing their righteous counsel
Their wisdom knows no bounds
Mordacious
Pointed

Assumptions, assumptions…

So building a website is a breeze, right? Erm… probably worth thinking that through again. Certainly if you what to take seriously the challenge of building for the plethora of devices users may access it on.…


“Why I Am an Atheist Who Believes in God”

Frank Schaeffer's talk about his book, "Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God", is disarmingly honest and articulate.
