Avoiding the Uncanny Valley of Interface Design

Douglas Bowman : Avoiding the Uncanny Valley of Interface Design - From Francisco Inchauste, on the topic of UI that imitates realism: It is so easy to love a certain effect and want to use that everywhere.

Douglas Bowman : Theme files for my WP tweet archive - Last month, I posted a short little write-up about how I created my own tweet archive.
