It’s hard to believe that it’s already the middle of August. This week was a bit crazy: managing two freelance projects and getting my company website launched. My CEO agreed that if we got the site launched by Friday, she would send myself and my fellow Front-End Developers to An Event Apart Chicago. So yeah, that’s going to be awesome. Now, here is what I found interesting this week:
- Aurora Concept Video
Adaptive Path created videos for the Mozilla Labs concept browser series. This whole series was really cool, but I think that the user interaction is a long time from showing up. I also wonder how “non-technical” users would respond to an interface like this.
- Why is there no float: center?
I posed this very simple question last week, and there was some great discussion that ended up happening.
- Create a Citrus Fruit Design From Scratch in Photoshop
And this is why I will never be a graphic designer. How do you even do that? So amazing.
- The 5 hidden costs of running a CMS
I think these are definitely costs that are not really considered when deciding whether to power your site by a CMS, and which CMS to use.
- An Evolving Cultural Curiosity: We Need A Fake Follow
This is an excellent point that Michael brings up. On Twitter, if someone chooses to follow you, but you do not follow them, there is this sense of rejection from the person who decided to follow you. But honestly, they have no idea what your life is like. Maybe you are just so busy, that you only care to follow your closest friends. I think this is something that Twitter and other social networking sites should seriously consider.
