I just watched…The Martian

Matt Damon. You're awesome. The Martian is probably the best film I've seen this year.  After enjoying a gorgeous seafood feast courtesy of Smith's, I had the pleasure of seeing the incredibly well told story of survival on a desolate planet. But it wasn't a survival...

I just watched…The Last Witch Hunter

So thanks to my Cineworld Unlimited Black Card Membership, I had the pleasure of pre-booking an advanced preview of Vin Diesel's latest movie, The Last Witch Hunter. Lets just get this out of the way. Most critics slate the film. Metacritic gives it a 34/100 from 19...

I just read… Web Form Design

So I've been doing some "light reading" lately, and one of the books that has taught me a lot is Web Form Design by Luke Wroblewsk. It's about 7yrs old, which in IT means near enough a lifetime. But nothing in this book is dated. It's still so relevant to design...
