Or how often might the developers with a single copy of the current WIP, and if something breaks, everything grinds to a halt for them?

Adventures in styleguide driven development

I find myself getting more and more into the subject of styleguides. I use design and development to solve problems. For me, this means striving to build intuitive interactions for a digital space.

If it's about solving problems, we need to explore solutions

To achieve this, I start wondering about the bigger picture. I find myself trying to make a mental model that represents all the facets. First by defining the small parts, and then understanding how they can link together, and how they can affect each other.

See the radio widget up there on the right hand side? That would not make for a great user experince if the radio widget reset every time a new page was loaded.

Ok, what's with all the gobbledygook?

I just finished two trilogies by William S Burroughs 'The Cut Up Trilogy' and the 'Cities of the Red Night'. I'm currently reading James Joyce's 'Ulysses' while simultaneously playing an audiobook version. So alongside Robert Anton Wilson's 'Illuminatus Trilogy' and Thomas Pynchons 'Gravity Rainbow' . I'm using Rita.js to implement Marchov chains and combine these texts into new form.
