Why Unions Matter 

Permanent location of 'Why Unions Matter'

John August on why joining the Writers Guild of America is mandatory for selling a script in Hollywood.

Of course, John does not make the real case for why unions matter, in discussing only the WGA, but he gives some of the reasons. Mainly that if there weren’t unions, workers would be fucked.

(And in USA, many are. The unions of the States have historically been very poor, at least compared to many countries in Europe. I did a rather extensive paper on this once, and it was very sad to find out how bad it is in the state.)

Filing browser bugs

John Resig‘s guide on how to file a proper browser bug. Unfortunately, I’m one of those people John Resig lament over, having never filed a bug report in my life.

Andy Clarke's copy-writing guide 

Although aimed at clients, there’s sound advice for anyone involved with copy-writing on the Web. Great guide, and one that will hopefully turn into a resource to be reckoned with in time.

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.
