Found a nice, interesting piece about weblogs and how they are an indicator of how most media has been opened up to amateurs, by technology.
A lot of good points are made, though the auther tends to over-simplify a fair bit. A lot of the comments are excellent too, giving the article even more credibility as a discussion point.
A few articles I’ve found interesting, on this dull Monday morning, collected by FeedDemon:
- Joe Average User Is In Trouble
- Nice opinion piece on security vs. the average computer user.
- Friday Feast #63: Information Architecture, Standards, Best Practices
- Takes a look at a new interview with Jeffrey Zeldman, A List Apart’s new site design, and user-friendly approaches to website information architecture.
- Sliding Doors of CSS
- Great little article on a technique that could make CSS driven pages even more attractive
Bit-Tech have just posted the second article following the Orac3 Mod.
If you in any way appreciate PC modding, then I urge you to read this!
After a week and a half of waiting, my new Transformers Binaltech Smokescreen arrived in the post today 😀
In case you’re wondering what that is, it’s a 1:24 scale series of Transformers that are replicas of real life cars – just like the originals. Smokescreen, for example, is a perfect replica of Tommi Makinens’ WRC Subaru Impreza, right down to the sponsors logos.
The Binaltech line also features such niceties as die-cast parts and masses of articulation.
I’ll post some photos once the gallery is up and running. This really is one cool toy!
A few days late with this one, but hey-ho…
The Mozilla Foundation released new milestones of three of its open source applications.
The Mozilla Suite – which contains an advanced, fast and robust web browser, a simple WYSIWYG HTML tool and a secure mail client is now up to version 1.5.
Thunderbird, is a development of the mail client that comes with the Mozilla Suite. It contains many advanced features, such as intuitive anti-spam controls and is far more secure against viruses, worms and other such risks than Outlook Express. Thunderbird has now reached version 0.3.
Firebird, is a development of the web browser found in the Mzilla suite. It is fast, robust and contains many highly useful and advanced features such as find-as-you-type (find links and text on a page, simply by typing. No fiddling with menu items), tabbed browsing and extensibility in the form of extensions. Firebird also offers a high degree of standards compliance.
I like Mozilla stuff. Firebird is my default browser and Thunderbird is my mail client. Both are highly capable (and, I reckon, far better) alternatives to Internet Explorer and Outlook Express. Go download now, you won’t regret it!
Worlds Best PC Mod. This thing’s given me the modding bug again. Gawd help us.
Must resist buying another PC…
