Facebook is a blog

Facebook is restless. Not so long ago did they launch a successful redesign of their website. It has some issues like tabs pushing content to the background and subsequently being ignored. On the whole it’s a marked improvement of what went before. Facebook is steadily carving out a huge chunk of the web for itself and with yet another redesign they seem set to make a push for world domination. As a blog.

On top, what’s not to like?

The new web browser from Apple, Safari 4, has got many a blogger blogging on its virtues and flaws. The most controversial of the lot seems to be tabs on top.

iPhone, youPhone, wePhone, apps not so much.

I remember when shareware started to take flight. I simply didn’t have a enough download bandwidth to get my hands on it all. I simply had to have it all. Oh, those were the day’s, like a teenager going through a ‘phase’. After a while I cut my hair short again and started to remove some of the shareware. Well, to be honest I needed the disk space, that 500 MB SCSI drive had cost me a small fortune.

JavaScript. What’s not to like?

I’ve been working on different projects and coincidentally javascript was an issue. I lean towards some more than others. jQuery being one of them. However I have used some other good libraries like MooTools, Prototype.js + Script.aculo.us.

Spin this!

Sometimes a fancy image can be easily spun, literally. A bit of wood and a half chewed Bic and you’ve got yourself a tool to make some art, ‘Take Hart’ style. Thomas Forsyth has made some great images with his spinning tops and has made them available via Etsy. Sadly, they’re are sold out. But how hard can it be to make them yourself?

Update: They’re back on sale so form an orderly queue. Hopefully he’s got the Chinese working on it so that the supply doesn’t run out!

PMS this!

How I wish we had one of these Pantone shops around the corner. The graphic design geek in me just loves this kind of nonsense. I’ve resisted getting one of those Pantone mugs you can get everywhere. I just might change my mind.

Making the web happen 2009

It’s a new year and there is a lot happening. Microformats took one in the teeth after being snubbed by the BBC, outsourcing is a bit of a mugs game in light of the recent scandal by Satyam Computer Services, IE8 is taking it’s time because it looks like will have a summer release, Firefox can’t get any traction in the Netherlands and I’ve discovered looking for good senior web developers is a bit like panning for gold after the rush. Hard tedious work with little to no return.

IE7: Piggy in the middle

I wonder how Microsoft will deal with IE7 when IE8 becomes shippable. Will IE7 automatically be upgraded to IE8? Microsoft is putting a lot of effort in IE7 compatibility mode in IE8, so it seems like an obvious thing to do.

Twitter is killing my blog

Lately I’ve been pretty active on the web. Usally that means blogging like it was the year 2000. Now 2008, things are different. In my case not in a good way, at least not in the way I’d like it.

20 years ago

Today the internet, in it’s public form, sans military, in the Netherlands is 20 years old. Time seems to have flown by. It’s staggering to see how much it’s grown. It’s also painfully obvious that we’ve got some way to go, we still seem to have our training wheels on. So many web sites are still broken, tools to make these web sites are broken and many don’t know how to use them let alone fix them. Education must pick up the pace, because everybody else is steaming full speed ahead.
