MIFF2019. Wow, that was an intense 3 weeks. From the amazing opening night film, to the closing night, there were many memorable nights had by team MML - especially our special "film of choice" screening of Aretha Franklin in Amazing Grace! The zombie selection was pretty good too (Jim Jarmusch's contribution to the genre with The Dead Don't Die was actually a lot of fun. So was Little Monsters).
Its #MIFF time again (canyabelieveit!) Another bumper program. Make sure you check out NOW SOUND: MELBOURNE'S LISTENING
Geolocation: Where's my head at?
So you are building a site or app, and you want to offer content or services that can be tailored to users according to their location (eg 'find the nearest cinema'). Geolocation lets users share their location with trusted web sites. The Geolocation API defines a "high-level interface to location information associated only with the device hosting the implementation, such as latitude and longitude". The API itself is "agnostic of the underlying location information sources".
Thinking small and mobile...
Mobile sites, responsive designs and apps .. Its no secret that the popularity and proliferation of mobile devices has meant many businesses need to rethink their digital and online strategies. So - what are the main options?
'Interactivity' is often limited to the user moving their cursor to an appropriate place, clicking their mouse, then something happens. Choice follows a tree structure with limited branches and is limited to a series of predetermined outcomes, nothing new or unplanned for originally can develop, emerge or challenge the original script.
