This week we chat with James Berrow about colo(u)r, and how we're doing it all wrong (and not just the spelling).

We look at why colour management is complicated, how RGB doesn't exist, and how everybody (well, almost everybody) gets it all wrong. We also look at the graphics proposal, and James' critique of it, as well as how he is working with the authors on some improvements.
