Where was this book two years ago?! Looks like this is going to be a great book, love the Q&A at the end. I like that you show multiple approaches to a given problem, really putting theory to practice.

IOTBS has a problem with flashing the default styles then loading the user-specified styles on every page refresh or reload. Whereas scripts that seem to use the window.onload don’t have this sort of problem; they only flash the default styles this first time the window is opened.

IOTBS is a great start but improvment on flashing default styles is needed to reveal its full potential.

great info, but way too long to read on a screen.

If it’s too long to read on-screen, then you know what to do? Print it out…

Yes, it was long but a thoroughly interesting to read; particularly the Malarkey interview.

Great teaser. I can’t wait for the book to come out.

The article was intriguing. It makes correlation to the possiblity of the developer writing scent-enabling content into their style sheets or interface with impartiality towards visual and audio but enhancing the net experience. This would spark the use of Multi-Sensory Peripheral Devices therefore broadening the bandwidth of perception of modality.

Sorry, comments are closed.
