Got to keep up with the web. Here is a collection of pages I've bookmarked.
jQuery crash course
Doing a lot of JS DOM access? JQuery is a library optimised for exactly this
Wicked! Hyatt has abstracted the proposed W3C CSS3 rotation transform to sacle and skew boxes (and to think rotation might be dropped from CSS3 because other browser makers think it is too hard...)
Content is king?
Well it is up for debate these days, but these sites do text very well
No more news for the next week - it is holiday time!
ALA survey results
Interesting snapshot of the web industry - beautifully presented as well
Collection of great adverts used on buses - good creativity
Nice way of showing links between large amounts of information - although more than 1D might get messy
A Webkit driven Firefox?
With Mozilla considering version 2, it is time to think big. Dropping Gecko for Webkit is one option (let the flames begin) - Not going to happen though...
We all know language changes over time, but now we can predict how a language will evolve
Gecko is late to the party
With Opera and Webkit already out on mobile and embedded devices, it is about time Mozilla got their act together as well - perhaps the speed improvements will be found in the main trunk as well...
Andy Clarke has assembled a team of designers of surpassing talent to help the W3C find the correct way forward - hooray!
Hyper-stereo from Adobe
This is a really interesting look at what you can do with multiple images of the same scene - technology such as this and PhotoSynth from Microsoft have a very promising future
C/C to AS3 converter
Sneek peak at a code language converter - Flash just won a lot of new developers
Webkit supports @font-face
Now you can download fonts to the client-side. Yes yes, Flash blah blah... - We are looking for the best of all worlds
We all make mistakes (some more frequently than others) and it takes a lot to admit to them
Wear the fox hat
This advert was missed from the list below - probably because it is only very
funny if you live in Fife. Again good targeting
Good beer adverts are given that creative touch to hit the target market square on
Two sided advertising
Dove make an excellent pitch against the beauty industry - very well put together advert
Optical scanning displays
Sharp have been showing off their prototype LCD display which has optical sensors in each pixel. Very cool
The future is bright...
It is a big step forward for OLED as Sony announce a 3mm deep TV screen - display technologies are getting exciting
Agree with Jakob on this one - a fluffy introduction is hopeless - rather help your readers by being succinct
