It's from the latest Howies catalogue, and is by Dan Germain, who's the guy who does clever things with words over at Innocent. (He also has a rather wonderful blog, which is just celebrating its first birthday.)
Apologies for the recent posting hiatus, which is due to Alistair having broken both his scaphoid (wrist bone) and radial head (part of one of the bones in the arm) in a cycling accident in Brockwell Park. The irony of the fact that he survived the rigours of Kilimanjaro only to be felled by a local park (technically by a local dog in a local park) is lost on no-one.
We're gradually getting our dusty heads round the various aspects of blogging, and the whole Web 2.0 thing.
(For those of you who don't indulge in tech lingo, Web 2.0 is a vague collective term for the websites that have appeared in the last few years which focus on social interaction and networking, and which give users far more control over their content.)
One of the big things we've been eager to work out is how to use RSS Feeds. Sometimes when you open a web page, particularly a blog, you'll see the little blue box with RSS in it on the right hand side of your address bar. That's a link to the RSS feed for that page. The RSS Feed is a version of a webpage that can easily be read by other websites.
What that boils down to is that if there are a bunch of websites you look at regularly, rather than laboriously open up each individual one, you can create a single page which loads up all the new posts from each site.
There are a bunch of different places that can do this for you, but the one we've taken to like a duck to a large wet place is Netvibes. It's one of those sites that works exactly the way you'd like - it's clean, simple, intuitive, logical, and above all, easy to get your head round.
Alistair's brother Graeme is a copywriter and part time art director, who works with Gavin, an art director and part time copywriter, over at DDB. They've done loads of great work for VW (including this Polo made of ice) and The Guardian, and they've just put their portfolio online. Check it out.
