I’m working on adding a wiki system to my personal site for non-chronological content. I hinted at doing this a while ago in Practical Publishing. It’s taken until now to actually get it together.
Social media is people. People talk about stuff. The end.
Nobody talks about people down the pub laughing about Bale’s expletive-laden bullying as a “social drinking sensation
There is coffee all over the world. Increasingly, in a world in which computing is ubiquitous, the computists want to make coffee. Coffee brewing is an art, but the distributed intelligence of the web- connected world transcends art. Thus, there is a strong, dark, rich requirement for a protocol designed espressoly for the brewing of coffee. Coffee is brewed using coffee pots. Networked coffee pots require a control protocol if they are to be controlled.
To pre-empt this nonsense the practical course of action is to add the IE8 Compatibility view to your pages now before your sites get added to a blacklist. Exactly what Microsoft announced a year ago. They’ve routed around the web standards community. Again.
The key ingredient I see in successful apps, Mac or web — and, really, in creative commercial endeavors of any kind — is that the creators are building something they themselves love. That’s what you should copy.
And please, let’s put the whole “display: table-cell will grant those abilities through CSS” to rest. Saying that is just saying “use tables for layout” with different words. Turning a bunch of divs or list items or whatever into table-role boxes is no better than just using table markup in the first place, and it’s arguably worse. Using element names other than table and td to create layout tables, and then claiming it’s not using tables for layout, borders on self-deception.
I’d like to issue a full and categorical denial of this. We’ve never had any request for such data by anyone, and if we did we wouldn’t consent to it. Of course we work with the major labels and provide them with broad statistics, as we would with any other label, but we’d never personally identify our users to a third party - that goes against everything we stand for. As far as I’m concerned Techcrunch have made this whole story up.
For each of the near term reporting requirements (major communications, formula block grant allocations, weekly reports) agencies are required to provide a feed (preferred: Atom 1.0, acceptable: RSS) of the information so that content can be delivered via subscription.
All this talk of CSS layout modules.
The Conservatives were happy to misinform the world in order to back up their boss’s quip - to damage a charity that gives knowledge free to billions, for trivial political gain.
It’s the act of someone who’d forge a disabled parking badge, a tiny unit of pure, sociopathic evil. Even politicians should be ashamed that they’re harbouring anyone like that.
<div x-mojo-element="ToggleButton" id="my-toggle"></div>
The World Wide Web is a beautiful piece of social software.
Cappuccino is not designed for building web sites, or making existing sites more “dynamic”. We think these goals are too far removed from those of application development to be served well by a single framework. […] With Cappuccino, you don’t need to know HTML. You’ll never write a line of CSS. You don’t ever have interact with DOM.
We are all free to have fanciful ideas. Professor Greenfield’s stated aim, however, is to improve the public’s understanding of science: and yet repeatedly she appears in the media making wild headline-grabbing claims, without evidence, all the while telling us repeatedly that she is a scientist. By doing this, the head of the RI grossly misrepresents what it is that scientists do, and indeed the whole notion of what it means to have empirical evidence for a claim. It makes me quite sad, when the public’s understanding of science is in such a terrible state, that this is one of our most prominent and well funded champions.
Give Seth a cuddle
He is in SVN…
He's _in_ SVN? Like, trapped there? Like in Tron?
… And trying to help me figure out what is up with my sever access, apparently my password keeps randomly changing
Hmm, Tron 2 is already in production, but Tron 3 as ‘An accident in version control’ would be AMAZING
The final showdown would have Seth and Jeff Bridges team up with previous revisions of themselves to defeat whoever it is that's changing your password…
You can paint it any color you want, but the broadest concept fueling the web is the exchange of knowledge and data over the network, and to argue that web apps are somehow ‘exempt’ from the need to ensure accessibility because they are somehow different does the real disservice here – they are simply more complex abstract layers between the data and the user.
