Phew, the last two weeks have been a blast, but also a bit tiring. I went on a visit to San Francisco in order to speak at the Voices That Matter Web Design Conference, and since I was in town anyway both Yahoo! and Google invited me to do a tech talk. I returned home on Friday, and on Saturday I spoke at the Amsterdam Widget Dev Camp organised by Vodafone NL. Fun, but wearing.
As you may know by now, I’m currently heavily engaged inW3C Widgets research, so it’s no surprise that three out of four of my presentations treated this topic. As usual I’ve put the slides online.

At the urging of Jon Boutelle I became a SlideShare member and uploaded my presentations there, too.
(By the way, just a few hours ago I read Jeremy’s article about GeoCities being destroyed. Jeremy is concerned that this may happen to other services, too, and is not happy with this state of affairs.
I disagree with him; as far as I’m concerned the problem lies with people who put vital content only on external services instead of at their own site, where it belongs. If the data is important to you, keep a local copy. If you don’t, anything that happens next is your own fault.
That’s why I consider the slides here on QuirksMode.org the official and canonical ones, and the SlideShare ones mere copies meant only to give my readers and followers easier access and sharing possibilities. Should, God forbid, anything happen to SlideShare later on, no lasting harm will be done.)
I’ll be around at the following conferences:
