Holiday season makes me lazy and anxious. Odd combination I know. I’m looking forward to the family time, but not the long driving; Looking forward to open the presents but not excited about my bank balance. It’s just one of those times of the year I let myself stress about little things, then I realize there are so many other people who are less fortunate than me. Not being pretentious here, just the bleak news on all medias lately.
Mobile Web – Mark put together a list of the mobile version of the major sites. A very good reference if you make mobile web in the future.
Avoiding The Uncanny Valley of User Interface – I like it when Jeff writes about UI. It’s always refreshing to hear from a programmer’s POV. While I agree with his point and analogies used, I think the problem lies within technology atm. I don’t think anyone is freaked out by Androids portrayed in sci-fi shows. Same goes for the web. I also think client app and web app are converging in terms of UI.
The Interface of a Cheeseburger – I tend to stretch analogies a bit in my writings. This one beats me by far. A good read. McDonald doesn’t make you think, it just makes you fat.
A Father’s Tribute – I first read about this boy visiting the Blizzard HQ a while back. Recently the unfortunate inevitable has happened. A very touching story.
