Tumbly goodness, page 25 Atom feed

Kottke says a tumblelog is a quick and dirty stream of consciousness… with more than just links. Anarchaia was the first, but there are many copies. And they have a plan.

  1. With AJAX and DOM scripting becoming more commonplace, pages are too dynamic to illustrate with a static wireframe or page description diagram, and it seems everyone is starting to realize it. Unfortunately, The [sic] alternatives to traditional wireframes such as animated GIF's [sic] or storyboarding, really aren't much better. I really think there's only one solution. Just build it.

  4. JetBlue will be serving Dunkin' Donuts coffee. Yay!

  5. Looking for a beautiful typeface? Fontin.

  6. Alex King's blog desperately needs to have higher contrast between its text color and its background color.

  7. Trader Joe's 2005 Vintage Ale (by Unibroue) is ridiculously yummy and, at $4.99 a pop, it's easily worth every penny.

  8. Andy Budd wants a parent selector in CSS3. Sounds good to me! I prefer the syntax given in one of his comments:

    #child < .parent {…}

    Update: Dylan Schiemann proposed this syntax back in 2000.

    Update, May 2008: This sort of thing has popped up again, this time in Shaun Inman’s CSS Qualified Selectors. John Resig even implemented it for jQuery.

  9. supr.c.ilio.us mashes up Chuck Norris facts with Web 2.0. My favorites:

    • Chuck Norris does not build to flip. He builds to roundhouse kick to the face.
    • Chuck Norris has more friends on MySpace than Tom.

    These are especially amsuing for me, since I work at a Web 2.0 company and my boss (our CTO) is named Chuck Norris.

  10. Tag Soup: Crazy parsing adventures

  11. As everyone else has pointed out already, Google Talk now supports XMPP s2s. Unfortunately, the current release of Adium doesn't allow it. Fortunately, the next version will.

  17. Someone's released a PHP OpenID library. Now I need to look into how hard it would be to plug it in to Eventful.

  18. I conjecture there is a connection between the strength of the "state as parent" structuring metaphor, strong executives, tryanny, and war.

    Take it further: Part of civilizing (quite literally) our minds is weakening the strength of this metaphor. The fact that classical liberalism—based on the metaphor of the merchant/consumer relationship—cannot be fitted into the Lakovian schema is evidence of its of its psychological foreignness, but moral superiority.

  19. Unsurprisingly enough, it seems the vast majority of Afgans have a favorable view of U.S.-led forces. Via normblog.
