The other day a friend asked me what “ROFL” meant. It’s IM-speak for “Rolling On the Floor Laughing” and I’ve just found a great place to use it.
One of the more dubious privileges of running a business is that you meet quite a lot of marketing consultants who patronise you about your website/mailshots/adverts/blog and tell you that they could do so much better for a very reasonable £1,200/day plus expenses. From now on I shall tell them I’m about to sign with Huh? Corporation and see how many think to research the competition…
In point of fact, we are getting the website redesigned at the moment, but not by Huh. It’s being done by a very talented young man in Bodrum, Turkey, called Hakan Akyuz. We’re not quite ready to show off the new site yet, but here’s a peek at some of Hakan’s earlier work.

Jef Raskin, the original developer of the Macintosh, died on Saturday. Goodbye old friend (whom I never met, and knew only through your designs), and thank you for 20 years of pleasurable computing.
It was exactly 403 years to the day that Samuel Pepys wrote in his diary:
…to the Opera, and there saw Romeo and Juliet, the first time it was ever acted; but it is a play of itself the worst that ever I heard in my life…
Well, I beg to differ, Mr Pepys. So much so, in fact, that I’ve just published a set of online end-of-unit assessments to Romeo and Juliet, and I’m inordinately proud of them.
