Jonathan: PBS : Porridge Brain Syndrome. It’s what my brain is like after much of the past month or more – and almost continously for the past 60hrs or so – concentrating on website rebuilding. It’s very demanding work. There’s the ‘structural’ design, the aesthetic design, the user interface, the resources to support these, before I even think about the actual content.
