From @glitchyowl, first site on the bubble web, the sensation of comic logs.

This site is my community. I say what we do is - all put little Javascript bubbles on our pages and start a new Web and you HAVE to HAVE bubbles on the page to be respected at all. If you can’t put bubbles on your page then you’re not underwater like the rest of us.

But not only is this the first site on the bubble web, but it’s the site to innovate the ‘comic log’ - Weiwei’s frame-essay with a kind of webzine feel to it.

Comic log.

These comic logs are just giant images. But that doesn’t diminish the effect on the page. It flows like a nicely constructed web page. (What I’m saying is - you can make these much easier than you might think.)

I can envision this form spreading - much like tumblelogs played into Tumblr - so I’m glad to see she’s continuing with it. I can picture richer interactive comic logs coming into play. (This also feels adjacent to Neil Mather’s recent foray into Powerpoint-like Weeknotes.)

  1. yes for more bubles on the web! if u r down, I'd love to chat more about comic logs with you!
  2. Oh yes I’m down for chat. You tell me when and where. Just want to encourage this direction you’re on.
  3. 💜 can you dm me? I can't seem to dm you
  4. Ok yes this is rad but also some of my friends are blind so this sucks big time. But you know what doesn't suck? SVGs. They should be SVGs. we should make them in inkscape or affinity designer or whatever. Then they're screen readable. Then it's the BEST.
  5. 🌱 Yes I’m trying to find a good way to do this (and keeping it responsive) Do you have suggestions on how to do this?
  6. I think SVG is quite good. Text can be embedded as screen readable text with an svg font included (like webfonts), and we can maybe hide text behind art objects with image descriptions inside a vector app to easily add alt text? I want to experiment with it for sure
  7. Cool! Would love to see ur experiments and exchange findings!
  8. I don’t see why they wouldn’t, but also, you can have links in svg, and even scripts, if you use <svg> html tag to embed instead of <img> you can do anything html can do, including mix html and svg tags to make nice stuff, or use svg filters in css on html. super cool stuff
