Meet the Author

Anselm Bradford is a web developer from Vermont focused on front-end technologies. He works on government software and is a Code for America alum and former lecturer in digital media at the Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand. His experience with Internet-related development stretches back to 1996, when he hand-coded his first web site. He may be found @anselmbradford on Twitter and at http://github.com/AnselmBradford.
Clawing his way from deepest, darkest Somerset, U.K. upon his coming of age, Paul Haine found himself ironically trapped for another six years on the opposite side of the country in deepest, darkest Kent, learning about web standards during the spare weeks between history lectures. Now residing in East Oxford, he spends his days working for an international publishing company, surrounded by a plethora of Apple-branded hardware, Nintendo kitsch and a truly massive collection of grunge and pixel fonts. Paul also runs his personal blog, JoeBlade.com, alongside his design blog, UnfortunatelyPaul.com. He attends to both of these approximately every six months during the gaps between catching up with his blogroll, and refreshing it to begin reading again.
