A new month, a new beginning: I’ve launched css/edge, a place for some personal (yet public) CSS-based design experimentation. The basic goal: to push CSS as far as I can, and to do things with HTML and CSS that nobody has ever seen before. The first installment was the complexspiral demo; now, with the launch of css/edge, I’ve added pure CSS popups. Investigate, share, and enjoy!
In the meantime, Kat and I are giving serious thought to renaming our guest room “Heartbreak Hotel”—not out of any love for Elvis, but because several people we know are suddenly leaving long-time partners, and some of them have dropped by/will be dropping by for a few days’ retreat. Part of me wonders if it’s post-traumatic stress left over from last month, or if perhaps 9/11 shocked a lot of people into realizing (as one person put it) that life is both too long and too short to be unhappy.
