Nathan Borror writes an excellent post about how quick and easy it is to do a basic XML-based API with Django
Good description of some typography rules that apply to the web. Definitely something that needs a bit more emphasis in my opionion.
*At first it was pretty awkward, said one observer. But then it was like, 'Yes, Soundgarden is back.' It was so intense. Good to hear the Black Hole Sun guys are back at it, even if IT is hanging out and eating cinnamon sticks.
Brian May can not only rip a killer guitar solo, but also write a mean thesis. Cheers to Brian for completing his thesis, in case this guitar thing doesn't work out, you should have a backup.
That's right. I'm a huge rabbit. Got a problem?
I really enjoyed and got a lot out of this guy's perspective on life. If we get just a small part of his lecture and take it to heart, it would make a big difference in a lot of people's lives.
Hey death, go make me a sandwich. Now. And make sure there is plenty of mustard on it this time, or else.
This would be really cool for Kevin Rose, and all the talented folks at Digg. I hope it works out for them, as I've always been a huge digg fan.
Michael Beasley attempts to go to a club with his teammates in Miami. Bouncer realizes Beasley is 19. Denies the B-easy entry.
Hilarious! Actual instructions for AT&T employees explicitly dictate that they 'give the customer a chance to enjoy the feel of the phone' during the buying process. I can't wait.
Interesting move by Google on the social networking side of the web. I've never used this, nor do I know if I will, but I applaud it for being a different idea than the norm.
Walt Mossberg, David Pogue, and Ed Baig all review the new 3G iPhone. I am going to be in Kansas City on Friday to pick one up and after years of cheap phones, I am really looking forward to something different.
This is a great listing of some of the most influential and interesting album design from the last 40 years. There are some great ones on the list. My personal favorite is the Dark Side of the Moon cover, with Supertramp's Breakfast in America cover a close second.
Arrested Development was an awesome series and I really miss it. However, I have a certain affinity for shows that bow out before they go down hill. I hope the movie will live up to the high standards set by the series.
Bob Odenkirk and David Cross of Mr. Show fame have recorded a new pilot for HBO. HBO: please let this happen. I am a HUGE Mr. Show fan and this would be a personal dream come true for me.
Ok, I am usually not for decking out my cubicle with trite crap, but I have to say, I would like to have The Dude on my desk. But you know...that's just like... my opinion, man.
Ryan Berg publishes what looks like a great idea for creating a tumblelog using Django. This looks to be a very clean solution to implementing a simple tumblelog, but frankly, I'm not completely on board with the concept of a tumblelog to begin with.
Gary Vaynerchuk, the totally insane Wine Library guy joins in the fun at Revision3. It is unknown if the Internet can withstand the combination of Gary V., Kevin and Alex on the same website.
A bunch of new phones are set to be released by major companies who are trying to emulate the iPhone. Hint to Samsung, RIM: It's software, software, software.
The Poetic Prophet (AKA The SEO Rapper) pens a rap all about the way I like to handle my design business. From now on, I'm making all of my clients watch this video before we get started on the project.
This is a site devoted to interior design at work. Pretty cool stuff.
Woman makes a cup of tea, sits down to enjoy a nice evening of television. She passes away in the chair, and remains there for 42 years, until she was recently found.
This 76 year old lady in North Carolina has a husband pass away in October. No big deal right? Oh yeah, there's also this matter of her four previous husbands dying. Probably just a coincidence. Nothing to see here.
Cool panorama shot of one of the first room-sized computers. I love my macbook pro, but how cool would it have been to have one of these in your house?
Looks like Django is finally 1.0 in September. Great news, I'm really looking forward to this.
Sounds like Bill Walker suffered a minor injury to his knee in a pre-draft workout late last week. I feel for this guy. He's had some horrible luck over the last couple of years, and I really hope the best for him no matter what he decides today.
Sprint invests millions of dollars to market their "iPhone killer", except they designed it to compete with an iPhone that was released a year ago. I guess they should have checked digg and found out that Apple was releasing a new version in three weeks.
This is a parking lot about .5 mile away from where I live. Some pretty creepy stuff. I am very thankful none of this took place in any closer proximity to where I was.
Good photography of some of the damage we experienced here with the recent tornado. Fortunately, I did not personally have any damages due to this storm.
Metallica no likey review that gets published after they invite a handful of journalists to listen to an advance mix of their new album. They collectively cry "But it's not finished!" like little girls, then demand that negative review be taken down. You would have thought they'd learn something after the Napster debacle. Metallica - I dub you unforgiven.
