An interesting infographic by Designbysoap on the History of Typography. I must say I'm not sure if Internet Explore is any longer the "leading browser on the web".

Since writing my last post (Ten things that make me think "..life is too short"), I have found myself replying "..life is too short" to one other subject, and feel this moment requires its own post rather then a dot point. That is, life is too short for black socks.

For years now, I have only warn yellow socks - with much argument and hidden sock moments from many employer - and on the occasion, a pair of "happy socks" for when yellow didn't suit the attire. I find that different socks add interest, and people can't resist commenting on one's colourful ankles.

This post is not only a commentary on wearing colourful socks, but more of a tribute to the fourteen pairs of yellow socks that I own and that have bought smiles to so many faces over the years.
