Posted on February 8, 2012 at 8:30am — 2 Comments HTML5 Inspiration

Along with everyone else who's moved onto HTML5, I've spent significant time looking at the possibilities of the next generation of HTML. 


One frustration that I ran into was seeing the state of web storage being in transition with the W3C taking webSQL off its spec and moving to indexedDB.  That itself if fine but the problem is that indexDB isn't fully supported by any browser vendor at the…

Twitter on a roll, Facebook not so hot in Japan

Both Twitter and Facebook have seen a lot of coverage in Japan so I thought I would share some of the things that I've learned about these two services and how they are doing.

So-Net SNS closes their Business

I think the new driver's license look needs some expert design advice.
Yikes! An adjective escapes me. That is an affront to all that is good and holy. DoT - Please do not inflict this design on the people of Hawaii. We will do it for free in the interest of the public good!

That Design Hell comic nearly caused me to cough up a lung. Its only funny when it isn't happening to you. :-)

The GUI Meetup is on Thursday. I see that you've RSVPd. I'm planning to do a little demo on iui.

I installed it this morning. If I see you on Thursday then I'll have to test it out. One more case of, "Why didn't I think of that."
