I’d buy an Apple Vision Pro if #Apple freed it from the constraints of the App Store. If they want to usher in an age of “spatial computing”, they need to let it be a computer, like a Mac, not an iPad. Only for an open platform could I justify that cost to myself.

Gotta take my iPad Pro M4 to the Apple Store because a vertical stripe about 1cm wide has become unresponsive to touch and Apple Pencil input. 🍋

Feeling lucky to be attending the TechDiversity Awards tonight, helping to represent Tech Career Paths 4 Girls, who are nominated for an award. I’ve been spending my Social Impact leave days at Culture Amp to help them polish up the videos that make up their choose-your-own-career experience for school-age girls.

Trying out ScreenMemory as a replacement for Rewind. It only does screen recording with OCR search (not audio recording), but I rarely used Rewind’s audio recordings. I hope it continues to gain features!

Build the Web

Make pixels change colour with code, to create beautiful, accessible experiences.

As Director of Front End Engineering at Culture Amp, I lead a practice of about 50 engineers to build interfaces that help users create a better world of work. After more than 20 years in the field, I continue to learn and explore what is possible on the Web.

Know your tools

Technology is a superpower. Make it work for you.

One of the gifts of a career in software development is the ability to automate away your own problems with custom software. I love to explore the little-known features and extension points in the technology I use, particularly in the Apple ecosystem.
