New article, tour dates, and feed changes

Hello, my name is Aaron Gustafson and I’m a delinquent blogger. It’s been over a month since my last confessionpost.

If it makes any difference, I’ll say that I am sorry, I’ve just been a little busy of late. Those of you keeping up with me via my Flickr stream or Plazes will see why: lots of travelling. It doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon, but I have a bit of downtime today so I thought I’d post some updates.

First off, I have a new article up on Digital Web Magazine that is all about the button. If you spend as much time with web forms as I do, I highly recommend checking it out. For some of you, the techniques may seem like old hat, but there are a lot of people out there who still haven’t realized the real power of the button element. On another publishing note, I’ve gotten a promotion to Technical Editor at A List Apart, which is sweet. Many thanks to Erin, Jeffrey and the rest of the team.

Also, if you haven’t been to this site lately or don’t follow my events feed on, I will be speaking at The AJAX Experience in Boston late next month and I have also been booked to speak as part of Web Directions North in Vancouver early next year. I will also be co-leading a one-day workshop with Malarkey while I’m there, if you’re up for some serious CSS-meets-DOM scripting magic.

Finally, I’m starting to do some tidying up with regard to my feeds. I’ve had a FeedBurner account for ages, but hadn’t ever really used it until today. I’ve created a new feed for this site which also incorporates my ma.gnolia bookmarks and Flickr photos (which, of late, have seen a lot more attention than this site). For the three of you using the old feed, I’d appreciate it if you could move over to this new one as I may disable the old feed at some point.

Anyway, back into the fray… I’m sorry for not writing more often.

Mea culpa,
Mea culpa,
Mea maxima culpa.
