Modular Content

I met these folks earlier today. Nice people, sounds like they’re doing interesting stuff. Wow. This is pretty intense. Also, they PREPARED CONTENT AHEAD OF TIME. This is almost more than I can handle right now. I don’t even. It’s a bit like what I’ve been doing with content types, but even more so. Like […]

Putting JavaScript into a Format

This one may be even nerdier than the previous ones, because it’s a very particular technical thing. (there’s Justin’s doppelganger again.)

But I’ve pretty much shuttered that, so now it’s here. For my loyal readers: Cascade Server is a content management system (CMS) […]
