For a while now I’ve been transitioning away from using the name jystewart.net for my web development work in favour of Ket Lai. The shift is partly born of a desire to separate out my work from other parts of my life (increasingly important now we’re a family of three), but mostly a recognition that I rarely work on projects solo these days–instead pulling in a range of collaborators–and a group identity is more honest to what we’re doing.
Today, thanks to the design help of frequent collaborator James Weiner I’m launching the Ket Lai website over at http://www.ketlai.co.uk. There are still a few bits and pieces we’re working on, but it’s great to have it out there for the world to see.
The site employs a variety of CSS3 techniques to give a little more visual feedback and spark, and is built on top of the merb framework (rails seemed like overkill, and personal-ish projects are usually a good chance to try something that not many client projects call for).
This blog will continue roughly at its present location, though jystewart.net may eventually get a little reorganisation/redesign-love. Naturally redirects will be used where necessary. Relevant posts are pulled across to the Ket Lai site, but this will remain a personal blog and hopefully suffer a little less from brand confusion.
So if you want to know more about the work my collaborators and I do or services we offer, www.ketlai.co.uk is the place to go. And now that it’s launched maybe (just maybe) I’ll be able to write here about a few other recent projects and interesting tidbits.
