Five things I’ve learned being on an innovation team
"For just under two years now I’ve been a “Digital Guerrilla”, working as part of a team of six in Birmingham, created by the BBC to “pilot and prototype new storytelling ideas”, and help the broadcaster to “engage with its audiences and to deliver unforgettable content”. I’m leaving this month for a new role, but wanted to share some learnings from being embedded inside a huge organisation and being tasked with—that dreaded word—innovation."

Using A Static Site Generator At Scale: Lessons Learned
"Static site generators are pretty en vogue nowadays. It is as if developers around the world are suddenly realizing that, for most websites, a simple build process is easy enough to render the last 20 years of content management systems useless. All right, that’s a bit over the top. But for the average website without many moving parts, it’s pretty close! However, does that hold true for websites bigger than your humble technology blog? How do static site generators behave when the number of pages exceeds the average portfolio website and runs up into the thousands? Or when development is a team effort? Or when people of different technical backgrounds are involved? This is the story of how we managed to bring roughly 2000 pages and 40 authors onto a technology stack made for hackers."

The Seas Strangest Square Mile on Vimeo
This square mile of water in the Lembeh Strait has some of the strangest and most unique marine life on the planet. It's like the set of an extreme sci-fi fantasy. The most grotesque of creatures - blind 3 mentre long worms with bear trap jaws, beings communicating using light signals we cannot replicate, with incredibly engineered bodies and optical abilities from which science is still learning. Hideous miniature monsters that prey mercilessly on anything that strays within their range. The next and possibly fatal attack can come from anywhere - from an apparently inanimate lump of rock or a gruesome fanged mouth bursting from the black sand. It's the sea's strangest square mile...
