I'm at my last conference of the year - ConFoo in Vancouver. Today I'll be presenting on new CSS layout and tomorrow on interesting new things more generally in the CSS specifications.

In other news 24 Ways is under way for Advent, bringing a new web design or development related article each day. The pattern library used for the site is live at bits.24ways.org. This uses the excellent Fractal, and the design and front-end development work is by Paul Robert Lloyd.
