Goodnight, and good luck. And i'll leave you with this little piece of beauty.

The New Socialism

Fantastic article from Wired Magazine about how the Internet is fostering a new era of global collectivization. Make yourself a nice cup of tea, and take a small while to read it. Very interesting.

The Revolution Will Be Tweeted

To anyone who thinks Twitter is vain, trivial or narcissistic navel gazing, think again. Iranians are using it to get the full story across to us, and Twitter have done their part too; rescheduling their maintenance as to avoid being down during this crucial time.

HTML Wins!

“I’m not against Flash and I love the work that people such as Joshua Davis do,” he explains. “It’s brilliant, but I’ve always been in this other area of web development that I thought was probably better for most content. There was a point in the 90s when I felt like a sucker for doing HTML and CSS and telling people about this stuff. I looked at all these people who had pure typographic control and could do animation, all this great, fun stuff, and I was this jackass saying ‘No, we should use HTML’. I felt like a loser, but we won – HTML has won. That’s the amazing thing for me. People use Flash for film and they use it for what Daniel Mall calls ‘the experience layer’ as part of a standards-based site. So there are uses for Flash, but basically HTML, CSS and JavaScript have become the real platform of the web now. I feel very heartened by that; it’s the thing that makes me the happiest.
