Project 365 Week 12

Continuation of last week’s “Playing with Aperture” series + a mystery bird (later identified as a Turkey Vulture).

The Web As We Know It Is Being Threatened

From Scientific American: The Web as we know it, however, is being threatened in different ways. Some of its most successful inhabitants have begun to chip away at its principles. Large social-networking sites are walling off information posted by their users from the rest of the Web. Wireless Internet providers are being tempted to slow […]

Googlebot on Facebook?

I’ve got a few Facebook Applications I’ve played around with developing that are not actually for use (read: they do nothing).

Things You’ll Love About Firefox 4.0

It’s that time again. Here’s my list of awesome things you’ll love about Firefox 4: For Users New Look For Tabs One of the first things that you’ll notice is tabs on top. This paradigm really makes more sense since the tab defines not just the content but the environment it’s viewed (prev/next button, URL […]

Fat, Ugly Or Slutty?

Async AdSense

About a year ago I asked where the async Google AdSense was. It finally arrived, and you need to do nothing to gain the performance. Awesome!
