Happy New Year All... welcome 2001, lets hope it brings great things for everyone!!!
Well, I am headed down to the bookstore to get myself a copy of Using Xhtml (Special Edition) by the ever cool Molly E. Holzschlag. This book is hot off the press and since it is written buy the Executive Editor of WebReview you know it's going to be good.
I am in search of resources on branding. Not to be confused with marketing ad campaigns and click-through rates. I need recommendations on books, sites, articles and other resources on branding. If you know of any, please let me know.
here we go again. I am pretty sure I have isolated the problem and I can be assured that they understand the "copy" part of "copyright" ...everyone please do me a favor... if you want to use my design, please ask me first.
I think Joe Clark is on to something here. Now, I don't know about the relation to drug abuse because I have never trekked down that path... but I can really relate to the HR people who do not know what they are looking for.
When was the last time you saw a traditional skilled painter that knew how to decipher 128-bit encryption within 5 seconds in their head?
The days of the "Webmaster" are long since dead... people, it's time to start post realistic job offers and give some realistic expectations of what a single web designer or developer can do within a given day.
I couldn't have said it better myself. Sure, I still have a few awards listed on the index page of this site, but I feel those are really the only ones worth mentioning.
I just found this cool site for the Pixel DNA conference. There are some videos of the speakers.... uhh.. Anyone know Italian?
Some people just don't get it. No matter how many resource you make avilable and no matter how many times you explain it again and again... they just don't catch on. Misunderstandings are what causes indifference. In this case, the author clearly does not understand the reasoning for web standards or the effort involved in encouraging compliance from the product manufactures. You can innovate and still adhere to standards, it's not that hard... if you know what you
Phat, tight and tiny design... what is it? It's called Codegraphik. Finally, someone else besides me realizes that you don't have to have huge 20k graphics to make a site look good. The baby loads fast, don't blink.
Marry Christmas and happy holidays everyone. Best wishes and joyful holiday memories for all.
On this holiday season, please help cheer up a dear friend of Marc Klein, the Creative Republic and myself. Nicolas Boghossian suffers from leukemia and we would really appreciate it if you sent him an email over the holidays. Just one small email is all we ask... something to let him know the world is there for him.
Updated the DOM resources page with newer information and links to related articles.
A new holiday double issue is up on A List Apart. This is so that Jeffrey and I can take a small brake from production over the holidays and enjoy time with out friends and families... and more importantly, enjoy life. One of the two features cover working for a start-up and stock options, etc. Good tips all the way around here. The second feature is by Curt Cloninger and covers the narrative voice of the web... all you zine authors will inhale this article.
Allaire has released the 4.5.2 update for Homesite. Some of the new features include Extended Integration with Third-Party Tools... which basically means you can work FTP using IPSwitch's WS FTP plus tools like HTML Tidy and of course TopStyle.

They have also improved Homesite's Resource Management, which means no more memory issues that force the program to crash. If you have 4.5 or 4.5.1 you can upgrade for free.
NY riot anyone?
Get creative with cube-tastik fun!
evolt.org turns two... Two years, that's a long time in web years. I have great respect for collaborative groups like these. Evolt is perhaps the perfect example of a successful collaborative group. (my curent web browsing music, "The Beatles, Revolution"... another good match)
Whoa... practically overnight... a whole new Haughey... very seasonal... nice work Matt! (my curent web browsing music, "Gary Hoey, Ho! Ho! Hoey II"... good match)
Revisit an old favorite. Java, Director and Flash, but so beautiful. Definitely not standard anything. :)
Issue #095 is now online at Kaliber10000. It is a very special issue to me because two killer guys from Dreaming America were involved with the production of this feature. Hats off to Scott Benish and Josh Kneedler.
I found this cool site via DiK's Mugshots. I like the use of motion... even more so, the artist is a true animator and cinematographer... 8mm, 16mm... you name it. However, the most interesting thing about this site is that it has a message. Check out the d-reel. This reminds me, I need to add my animation work to my portfolio.
The Aussies don't stop. Visual Response KARMA (VR09) is now live on the Australian INfront. The Transformers, more than meets the eye Visual Dialogue (VD06) between Justin Fox, Richard May, Domenic Bartolo, Finnegan Spencer and Sean Torstensson is now live too. "If you're gonna ride, Danno...ride in style!".

Heather Champ tells it like it is on her site, Harrumph! and I couldn't agree more. I mean really, what is the deal with growing fast, since when has it been better to have a big company? What ever happened to small an very creative? Gabe and my friends over at Second Story seem to be the only people in town who knows that a smaller company is sometimes better... and without questions, a hell of a lot more creative. Today I get a phone interview for a job at one of the fortune 100 companies... go figure.
Six and One over at SpeechTherapy tried to sneak by with a redesign without being noticed... to bad nothing escapes my eyes.
I kind of like the idea of this site... who said you can't get fifteen minutes of fame?

For those of you who have yet to check out the tool known as E-Quill, I suggest you run, don't walk and download this killer little tool. It only works in Internet Explorer but it is well worth it... especially if you ever need to make changes on a web page design wise or in the content of the page. This tool gets my highest rating.

Paul Petrunia never ceases to amaze me. Check out his new intro and slight redesign of Archinect. Slick, very slick.
Updated a few resources tonight. Check out the new Web Colors and Typography sections. Special thanks to Tim Webster and Bob Stein.
