The Future of Web Design Galleries – Steven examines the history of web gallery sites, and pounders about their future. With so many gallery sites popping up now, I believe that those who put genuine effort in it will attract the most viewers. Steven also runs the design resource site I frequent, designm.ag
Back To Reality – Andrew Zimmern, the host of my favorite show Bizarre Food, talks about how the current economy is affecting the food industry. P.S. Is it just me, or his blog personality different from his TV one?
Validifier – Nick shared this very useful tool in the comment section of my XHTML Strict article from last week. It converts non-compliant flash embedding code to valid XHTML Strict code. Very convenient for embedding videos from sites like Youtube or Vimeo.
Hotel 626 – There’s a reason why flash will always have its place on the web. Certain experiences just cannot be achieved by mere CSS/HTML.
FaceYourManga – I’m so not with it. I finally found the site where people make their nifty manga avatars. I made mine.
I registered an account with Sound Cloud during their closed beta. It finally went live today to the public. SC is to sounds tracks what Flickr is to photos, and more. Users can comment on each track, during any interval. It’s great for multiple artists to collaborate, or listen to what their fans have to say.
The 9th Floor
The 9th Floor, by Jessica Dimmock is photo documentary at its finest. While I was watching it for the very first time, I was so enticed by it, I literally forgot I was looking at mere still photos. The splendid usage of sound, imagery and somber narration set up the mood and tone, allowing my mind to fill the gap in between each frame.
