Deaf studies at Bristol

Writing about web page http://www.bris.ac.uk/deaf/

Bristol University has a Centre for Deaf Studies. Impressively, their web site is augmented by providing video on all the major pages containing both British Sign Language and International Sign Language together with sub–titles.

One small thing I don't get, though: most of their audience, deaf or otherwise, will be able to read. So what's the problem which adding sign language to their pages is intended to solve?


Thirty year family photo sequence

Writing about web page http://zonezero.com/magazine/essays/diegotime/time.html

This family have taken pictures of themselves at the same time every year since 1976. It's oddly compelling to scroll down the page seeing how the adults age and the children grow up. I wish I'd done this, but then maybe it's not too late to start.
