Evolution of Webdesign

Rarely have I seen the 1991 version of any website I didn't build. I always start out with plain text on the page and evolve from there.

The trends are perfectly picked out though, I can chart where I was in my career as I came across each although that's not to say I followed the trends of the time. From the 2011 template onwards, the market for themes exploded causing everyone to rush to adapt trends. What looked exceptional quickly became the norm.

Coronavirus lockdown leading to drop in pollution across Europe

I'd love to get my hands on data that had the CO2 or NO2 figures for every week over the last 5-10 years. We're strangling the planet but take a few weeks off to save ourselves and it gets a chance to breathe. There can be no argument that we are responsible for the affects of climate change. If self-isolation goes on until the summer, there's absolutely no doubt that we can make changes to reverse the damage we've inflicted on the Earth.

Cold Cure from Keenan & Kel

The episode of Kennan & Kel that inspired this must be well over 20 years old. It's one of those shows I was so excited to watch once we finally got cable.

Everything that was great about 90s Nickelodeon in one glass.
