The details coming from deaxon

Via Chris Bowler Oh my gosh the details of deaxon. Be sure to check out the super size. They’ve accomplished with this site what I find most frustrating about Web apps trying to mimic desktop apps: fluidity. Although it’s a WebKit thing, these guys pulled it off. Given their industry, it speaks volume about the […]

MetaLab Goes Open Source?

While I’m nearly sure the details of this issue are nowhere near what people may want to make them out to be, it’s a shame things like this happen. Many people read the post and assume the board of directors itself over at Mozilla did everything they could to steal from MetaLab. That’s not the […]

Noah Stokes / Designblind

Noah Stokes and I think alike. With each post of his I find myself more and more in line with the same experiences/frustrations/inspirations as he. We also have a ridiculously similar sense of humor. He’s a funny guy, and he’s said a number of things that I’ve either thought or haven’t afforded articulation quite yet. […]

Cameron Moll has done it again, and in a big way. A year long personal project of his has finally come to fruition. As he has done before, Cameron has released a stunning letterpress piece that’s well suited for any one of our homes or offices. I don’t even know where to begin describing the piece, but […]

The Panic Status Board

It’s things like this that make me more than happy to hit ‘Buy’ repeatedly. Could you imagine if Adobe provided such things? This reminds me of a nice post I read some time ago on transparency in software development in which Colin discusses the importance of software makers keeping in contact with their supporters.

Books in the Age of the iPad

Although not a device I’ll likely be picking up on launch day, the iPad seems to be taking hold as the device it was intended to be. I’ll be honest; my initial reaction to the iPad was a generic lack of surprise. Aside from the wild speculation taking place, I was nearly convinced it’d be […]

The Votes are in: Asides are on a Trial Run

Update: Along with this switch I will no longer be using FeedBurner exclusively. I’d appreciate it if you could take a minute to ensure your subscription URL is accurate to the links referenced in this post. Thanks in advance! While not overwhelming, the bulk of the response I got from the

Bringing on Asides: Yay or Nay?

I’ve toiled back and forth between the possibility (and feasibility) of adding asides to Monday By Noon. I’ve constantly wavered back and forth between whether they’re applicable and also whether readers would enjoy such posts. When I think about asides, I basically equate them to Tumblr style posts. In the case of MBN, I’d use […]
