Weekly Link Round-Up #43

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:

  • 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.
