VR: The Future of the Web?
Virtual Reality (VR) has huge potential to change the way we view and interact with the web and the world in general. Although VR experiences are still largely experimental, with headsets very much in their infancy, we can now begin to imagine how the impact of VR will shape the future. Imagine an ecommerce website that surrounds you - one that you could walk around much like being in a shop. Or a virtual library you could browse, pull a book off the shelf and read. These are the kind of exciting experiences we can expect VR to deliver one day along with much more.

Twitter turns 10!
Twitter celebrated its 10th birthday last month, a fact that many might find it hard to believe Twitter given the profound impact it has had to the way we communicate and share information digitally.
As the famous idiom goes: “a picture is worth a thousand words” - a statement just as true today as it was 100 years ago. Although we’re bombarded by images in this digital age we live in, an image can still be highly evocative and can connect with an individual very powerfully in a way that prose often can’t do as instantaneously.

Personalisation in web design
In recent years, user-centred design has become widely recognised as the vehicle in transporting a user to their all-important end goal. Any well intentioned website creator will have a goal, but without good user-centred design, a great idea and powerful functionality will still be viewed as impotent if they don't help the user complete their intended journey.
