Misty Adoniou on language and register
That’s not a sarcastic comment, just a fanciful one. I’m glad I know how to structure my sentences for different audiences. It is a powerful tool. It means I usually feel comfortable in whatever social circumstances I find myself in, and I can change my writing style according to purpose and audience.

Overrated Writers, Part Three: William Vollmann | Literary Kicks
Europe Central recently won the National Book Award, and so there I go trotting off to the bookstore yet again. Maybe this will finally be the William Vollmann book I can read all the way to the end, the one that my body won't reject like a badly transplanted organ. And here I go bringing it home and opening it to page one:

I love Django’s documentation. It clocks in at about 700 pages printed, and most of it is clear, concise, and helpful. I think Django’s among the best documented open source projects, and nothing makes me prouder.</i></p>\n<p><i>If any part of Django endures, I hope it’ll be a sort of “documentation culture” — an ethos that values great, well-written documentation. To that end, I’m writing a series of articles laying out the tools, tips, and techniques I’ve learned over the years I’ve spent helping to write Django’s docs.</i></p>\n<p><i>This advice will mostly be targeted towards those documenting libraries or frameworks intended for use by other developers, but much of it probably applies to any for of technical documentation.

Digesting Duck: On Writing
The lack of the updates on the blog recently has been mostly due because I've been writing my Game AI Conference presentation. I have done tons of research and prototyping the past 9 months, and now it has been time to draw conclusions and somehow wrap things up.

Whilst doing so, I have tried a couple of new work habits too. I'm one of those people who has a bit hard time concentrating on writing. The words just don't make sense to me. Heck, I did not even pass my A-levels in Finnish language.

Writing Microcopy
I remember the first time I realized how much even the smallest copy can matter in an interface. It was on an e-commerce project at UIE for which I had created a checkout form asking for billing information. I had coded up a system to notify me when an error occurred (even if people can overcome the error it was very helpful to know when one occurred). I kept getting notifications of billing address errors…it turns out that transactions were failing because the address people were entering didn’t match the one on their credit card.
