Have you run workshops before?@jesslynnrose I know mandrill just added support for handlebars, which looks cool! http://t.co/uNwon1uX9R@jesslynnrose Not sure, they've been taught pure HTML before, but they may be open to templating if it isn't too complex (how to send them?)Does anyone run workshops on how to create HTML emails?

@riklomas Mainly ideas for films. I often wake up with this story. Maybe I should write a screenplay! Also occasionally product design.@riklomas Depending on the idea I often weave it into my work@riklomas I would and have, except most ideas I have are for something completely outside my skill set.@riklomas I love making stuff, but more than that I love working with likeminded individuals. I don't care who had the idea first.@Wordridden @paulrobertlloyd Been there, done that. It sucks. Friends of mine have had breakdowns over it.

So is this! http://t.co/BkYWHtu2lR@subcide @daringfireball Perhaps so, but often when anyone has declared war on something, they've tended to just make things worse.@oswald808 I'm sure they were thinking that if all went to plan then it was good riddance.

@mrliamoneill I don't see that. @dot_york, you don't place ads on this site do you? This must be a browser extension or something melicious.@mrliamoneill Yeah, it's all on http://t.co/APIvsfEL9P (scroll down)@mrliamoneill Yeah, responsive web design. And really I just mean responsive interfaces, so ignore the web bit!@mrliamoneill But you're right that in practice, people often go with what is possible, and not what's desirable from user perspective@mrliamoneill I think the concept of rwd doesn't dictate any specific user interaction, but simply that the content adapts@mrliamoneill From a web perspective but referencing other things.@mrliamoneill How do we create interfaces that work on watches, phones, tv's, glasses, laptops and more?!@mrliamoneill I want to talk about the path that responsive design is taking with the increasing diversity of devices.And if you want 10% off a ticket, the discount code is JOSHJE http://t.co/SYRdGQqpsiVery excited to be speaking at @dot_york!
