Eric's Archived Thoughts: Bittersweet

Once again, Eric Meyer's words touch me deeply. His talks about Joshua's first day of kindergarten, love and life.

"Our kids may not understand exactly what we're saying in those moments, but they know exactly what we're talking about[...]"

The moments and emotions Eric describes match closely those burned deep inside my own memory cells, eventhough I have not been through the ordeals him and his family have. He has a way with words that goes strait to my heart, and for a brief moment, we are completely aligned while I read his lines.

Thank you Eric for sharing your thoughts, may they be happy or sad, they are always true and deep, and inspire me in my own voyage through life.

Tim Berners-Lee on the Web at 25: the past, present and future

In 1989 I delivered a proposal to CERN for the system that went on to become the world wide web. This year, we celebrate the web's 25th birthday.

Like the average 25-year-old, the web has been shaped by a vast array of influences - in fact, it was built through the efforts of millions. So this anniversary is for everyone. We should look proudly on what we've built. And as with most twentysomethings, the web's full potential is just starting to show. A radically open, egalitarian and decentralised platform, it is changing the world, and we are still only scratching the surface of what it can do.

On a Scale from 1-100, Milton Glaser Rates Every Single Olympic Logo Design in History

There's been much controversy recently around Olympic logo design, but let's not forget the rich and varying narrative the Games' graphic design has weaved over the decades. Ahead of Rio 2016, who better to cast their eyes and critical judgement over the good, the bad, and the ugly of logo design for Olympics past, present, and future than Milton Glaser? Here he is.

Hello, my name is David Roessli. I am a freelance web designer and developer based in Geneva, Switzerland.

This weblog is an nth attempt to solve my multiple online personalities and weblog/rss feeds burnout issues. (more)


I have been contemplating the idea of upgrading my desktop Mac since this spring. The latest 27" iMac (Quad-Core) seemed the perfect candidate, but the release of Apple's 27" Monitor last September made me stick with the Mac Pro...


The autopsy of an iconic album cover picked up on Kottke.org. A stacked graph of successive radio signals from pulsar CP 1919, in a 1977 astronomy encyclopedia that originated in a 1970 Ph.D. thesis. Fascinating <3...


Check out my latest Flickr ramblings. Mostly day to day cameraphone pictures stolen here and there.
