Today, An Event Apart came to my turf, the Twin Cities. Last year, I attended An Event Apart Minneapolis: it rocked. Mind-blowing sessions, whip-smart attendees and some of the most accomplished speakers in the industry. This year, due to a number of reasons, An Event Apart Minneapolis was an event from which I am apart.
I tuned into A Feed Apart, which collects tweets using the #aea hashtag used at the event. There you can find a ton of great little nuggets to read, encapsulating some of the most potent ideas expressed at An Event Apart.
Reading these tweets and attending An Event Apart are not the same thing.
Recently, a number of high-profile government website redesigns have launched with giant search boxes front and center.
This includes utah.gov, calgary.ca and pretty much every entrant in a recent New York City hackathon. Each of these feature a huge search box, and typically a gorgeous photo, with very little additional content on the home page.
Responsive web design allows our content to shine no matter the screen size, so it can be accessed easily on multiple devices.
However, devices are also starting to vary based on screen resolution. Can responsive web design handle that as well?
I believe it can, and it must. Here’s my take.
Right now, the iPhone 4 has a retina-display, with much higher pixels per inch than an iPhone 3GS.
The 3GS is 165 ppi, the iPhone 4 326 ppi, the iPad 132 ppi. That’s just for iOS devices. Resolutions abound.
A Chasing After Wind is not just a short story collection; another story surrounds the telling of these stories. These contemporary stories walk the border between science fiction and fantasy, where moments of humor emerge from tragedies. Is this struggle in vain, a chasing after wind? Or does everyone deserve a second chance?
I am a web designer and developer with a passion for web standards, accessibility, usability, and information architecture. My toolbox includes hand-coding XHTML and CSS, Drupal, ColdFusion, and all things Adobe.
When my head is not in the web, I enjoy walks with my wife and dog through our lovely neighborhood (walks with our cat proved counterproductive), time with friends, traveling, reading, movies, fantasy and science fiction, Blu-Ray, a nice meal now and then, and all things iPhone.
If I were a flavor of ice cream, trust me, it would not be IE6.
