About this talk

We may regard the present state of the universe as the effect of the past and the cause of the future. An intellect which at any given moment knew all of the forces that animate nature and the mutual positions of the beings that compose it, if this intellect were vast enough to submit the data to analysis, could condense into a single formula the movement of the greatest bodies of the universe and that of the lightest atom; for such an intellect nothing could be uncertain and the future just like the past would be present before its eyes.

— Pierre Simon de Laplace

About Jeremy Keith

Jeremy Keith is a web developer, designer, author and speaker. His milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.

Born at an early age, Jeremy moved from his native Ireland to the rocky shores of Brighton, England where he works with Clearleft as a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder. Instead of actually building websites, he just writes about building websites in books like Bulletproof Ajax and DOM Scripting: Web Design with JavaScript and the Document Object Model.

Jeremy does not have a blog at He is tagged with Ajax, microformats and APIs. He shot a man in Reno just to watch him die.
