Here's an intro to ScriptCraft, a mod for Minecraft that allows you to build things using JavaScript! The JS logo pictured here is available on Github, and I put a PR in to include it with the mod so everyone can enjoy gigantic JS logo goodness.

In case you've had trouble convincing people that things should look different across browsers, hopefully this'll help...

Delivering speed and delivering a good UX is more important than visual or functional consistency.

The grandmother of the herd got a little defensive of us sitting there after a while and wanted us to leave. Quite thrilling!

It was a game reserve just north of Port Elizabeth. Although we did accidentally drive toward Lesotho for about an hour in between East London and Durban!

My "Mobile Web Performance" Google Tech Talk is finally up, trying to segment Mobile Web Perf into 3 main topics and explain how to tackle each.
Check out the video here: http://bit.ly/sgqeZd . If you prefer a cleaner recording (and no audience questions...), you can watch a webinar I gave with similar content here: http://vimeo.com/32917131 .
Lastly, if you prefer to just browse the slides, they're available here: http://slidesha.re/vnpWSs

This was our favorite stop along the Garden Route taking us from Cape Town to Durban. The property a mini-village nestled into the hill facing the beach. There are dorms and camping plots, but we stayed in a private room which was overlooking the bay. It's easy to forget about everything and stay here for many care-free days. Not only are the views are stunning, and the beach lovely, but the staff offer many activities and tours, including surfing lessons, game park, and a cultural tour. They serve breakfast lunch and dinner every day for reasonable prices, and have a bar on the property when you feel like having a drink.

My girlfriend and I stayed only one night at Amakhala Woodbury Lodge, but it was an unforgettable experience! The accommodations and food are absolutely top notch, and we had an informative, entertaining ranger guiding us as we drove across the reserve spotting wildlife.

This was an amazing B&B just a few km out of the main commercial area of Mossel Bay. The rooms were cozy with a great view of the beach, the breakfast was a massive English spread, and Gaby, the host, was charming, helpful, and very knowledgeable about the Garden Route. I would definitely recommend any couples traveling to stay here! The beach was beautiful but beware, it has a strong current and swimming is not recommended. It was however an amazing place to watch the sunset!
