Simply Jonathan

We just wanted to let you know…

… We do not trust you, you might decide to hack your gift label:

White gift label on blue wrapping paper reading "Til Jonathan Fra Mia" plus the html encoded version of < followed by 3

I bought my girlfriend a present from Amazon, and thought I would make use of their gift wrapping service. For the note I settled on the conservative “To … From …” but added my own personal touch, “<3” (how is that for creativity?). Amazon, however, decided they did not like that, so they turned < into the corresponding HTML entity. You have to give it to them, though; they take security very seriously.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
