Introducing Guides

We’re pleased to announce a new feature, Guides! (codename Project Firefly if you’ve been reading the week-notes). Guides are a great way for you to create and curate an editorial list of conferences that matter to you.

Week notes: Fireflying towards Christmas

This week we have mostly been concentrating on "Project Firefly", our last feature for 2011. We've moved beyond last weeks paper and wall based designs and have moved onto prototyping and building the feature.

Week notes: Design process, stationery & Lego seagulls

It has been a week of juggling many exciting new things — not literally though because I have no co-ordination whatsoever. Project Hamster continues and we start in ernest on 'Project Firefly' which involves a significant amount of cutting gluing and sticking.
