Episode Summary Presenters Simon Pascal Klein ( @klepas ) Dennis Lembrée ( @dennisl ) Content Rundown Show intro: had some great feedback last week on the CSS3 gradients and SVG episode with an idea for using SVG sprites — very, very cool. Pascal briefly raves about the just reported new “neurosynaptic computing chip” by IBM that emulates the cognitive functions of human brains before welcoming our new robotic overloads.
Pascal is a standardista graphic, web and front-end designer, and a rampant typophile. Born in Mainz, Germany—the birthplace of Gutenberg—he now works in Canberra as a contract designer and studies at the Australian National University. He's been actively engaged in the Open Source community and local web industry, notably as one of the unorganisers to first bring BarCamp to Canberra. He enjoys drinking in as much good type as he can get and has been happily bending beziers since 2004.
