11/01/2010 @ 12:12 UTC

Douglas Bowman : Looking Back at Google in 2009 - A fairly thorough retrospective of Google and the huge impact the company had over the past year.

Perfect Pitch

3/11/2009 @ 18:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : Perfect Pitch - Helping Adactio get that perfect pitch. To nail it, even. You should probably link to his page too, if you're so inclined to fight DMCA take-downs for the sake of SEO. link

Douglas Bowman : Why Bottom Posting Sucks - I agree. Time for the end of bottom-posting arguments. link

Twitter feed of Genevieve Spencer

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : Twitter feed of Genevieve Spencer - If Twitter existed in 1937, and farmgirls had web access, this is how we would see one teen girl’s account of daily life during the Depression. Fascinating in a strange, time-travel kind of way. Here’s the back story and a few answers to FAQs [via]

10 things a web designer would never tell you

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : 10 things a web designer would never tell you - Paul Boag lays it down. A must read. You need to take control of the design process. Its your site and you should get the design you want. The role of the designer is to implement your idea. Do not allow him to drag you down into endless discussions about

Getting Things Done with Twitter

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : Getting Things Done with Twitter - Don’t be put off by the title if you’re not a GTD-type person. This list is a cornucopia of services built on top of Twitter, many that I’ve never heard of until now. After three years on the web, Twitter has become more than just anothe

Cufón

Douglas Bowman : Cufón - Fast text replacement with canvas and VML – no Flash or images required. Oooh. Must experiment with this soon. (via @hicksdesign)link  [via]

Adobe’s plugin for Photoshop CS4 to disable canvas rotation via the trackpad

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : Adobe’s plugin for Photoshop CS4 to disable canvas rotation via the trackpad - I’m linking to this because I’ve been stung by the problem too. The issue is with new MacBooks and MacBook Pros with the button-less trackpad. These trackpads have no dead zone like the old trackpads did. So until I get accustomed to using the

Douglas Bowman : Bring Down IE 6 - “…it’s finally time to take IE6 behind the shed and shoot it.” link

Fluid Grids

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : Fluid Grids - I love this in-depth look at implementing grids for liquid layouts. Ethan goes into detail just how it all fits together, and the magic formula needed to make it all work. Now if we could just have the ability to easily scale images inside a liquid layout

Wanted: Layout System

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : Wanted: Layout System - Eric Meyer elaborates on why we need a better layout mechanism for web content (whether it be via CSS or not). We know we shouldn’t use tables for layout. Floats are a hack, positioning is flawed, and display:table-cell is no better than using a tab

Tal Leming on Web Fonts

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : Tal Leming on Web Fonts - Seemingly reasonable middle-ground suggestions here that would allow web typography to move forward, allow people to use all the free fonts they want, yet continue to allow type designers to earn a living. link

In Defense of Eye Candy

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : In Defense of Eye Candy - Stephen Anderson: The more we learn about people, and how our brains process information, the more we learn the truth of that phrase: form and function aren’t separate items. If we believe that style somehow exists independent of functionality, that we

Fluid Images

Douglas Bowman : Fluid Images - Nice going, Ethan. Definitely one to keep in the ol’ bag o’ tricks. link

Attribution and Affiliation on All Things Digital

Douglas Bowman : Attribution and Affiliation on All Things Digital - Andy Baio digs into the reuse of certain content by AllThingsD for their Voices section: Ultimately, if authors are happy, there’s no problem. But it seems like there’s a divide between two types of writers online: unaffiliated independent blo

Welcome, Wired. We call this land “Internet?

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : Welcome, Wired. We call this land “Internet? - Interesting take on the future of Wired (mag vs. website). Wired is great print, but if the magazine can’t make money and is shuttered, taking the website down with it, I’m going to be livid. Not that making money online is easy—it’s n

Great Designs Should Be Experienced and Not Seen

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : Great Designs Should Be Experienced and Not Seen - The best design is that which does its job and stays out of the way. Jared Spool on invisible design: While all these things are what the designers at Netflix work hard on every day, they go unmentioned by their customers. It's not because these aspec

Choices

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : Choices - Craig directed me to this piece today after I complimented him on the new version of Twitterrific for the iPhone, stating how much I love seeing different approaches to Twitter client design. I hadn’t seen his post (from December 2008) before today,

Time to move beyond 960?

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : Time to move beyond 960? - Cameron asks the inevitable question about width on the Web. Probably not time yet for mainstream. But for showcases of design, why not start experimenting with the new real estate? link

A Deep Breath

9/09/2009 @ 01:00 UTC

Douglas Bowman : A Deep Breath - You’re encouraging the random and random is how you’re going to win. Random is how you’re going to discover a path through a problem that no one else has found and that starts with breathing deeply. Even though the subject matter and approach differ
