Basically, it means you can turn the web’s styling language – CSS – into a programmable language by embedding JavaScript in it… it’s an interesting idea. I don’t think it’s a winning idea at this moment, but I bet if you asked some designers they would LOVE this (designers which also know some JavaScript, which is getting to be the norm these days for web designers). In small dev teams it would mean the designer doesn’t feel they need to constantly nag the developers to add the  JS they need for their design…in this age where these concerns are quite separated in teams it would give the designers considerably more autonomy…interesting idea….


Been listening to Hamish Kilgour’s Franklestein album….sooooo good…. Hamish Kilgour was the drummer for ‘The Clean’ – the NZ band that brought indie pop to our small islands. His brother, also part of The Clean, went another route – staying very folk popish while Hamish always maintained a weirder edge. I far prefer this stuff…anyways, check it out. Very cool.

Mentioning it here as its surprising to me how many people from the publishing industry follow this blog. Really heaps it seems…So we’ll see, but this site will probably me more about my travels and some looser ranty and speculative things about publishing etc….lets see how it goes 🙂 for sure however the Coko blog is going to take off from my contribs and from many others. Soon a series of Cokocasts and ‘who is Coko’ interviews with Coko folks. Stay tuned!
