cssquirrel Zepto is nice for browser extensions, where the browser will always be modern and capable
Just reported+hid all Wix ads on Facebook — dialog asked me why. Flash websites are “Against My Views” #web
Turns out that performing a GET request on a data URI from PHP works if file_get_contents is used, not if cURL is used. I wonder what support is like for other server side languages — using data URIs in
with could be the basis of some interesting #webactions.
The more interwoven the relationship between the appearance and the manufacturing process is, the more honest the material.
Too right. I love the way @kevingoldman advocates the use of movement, state and microcopy for emotive design on the web.
#exeterweb conversation summaries:
Doing acceptance #testing in a different language to your application is philosophically a good idea.
When syndicating data, the quality can be used to determine the canonical version even if the separate versions don't link to each other (example: photographer takes RAWs, gives TIFF to client, RAW is proof of provenance) #POSSE
Not drinking tea and not having cream on cream teas reduces the day to day hassle, stress and confusion of living in Devon by approximately 90%.
And the compliment of that #universallaw: the simpler the text-publishing service, the more interesting uses it’s users will put it to, provided it paves their cow paths (e.g. Twitter with RTs, #hashtags and @-replies).

It doesn’t matter what the original intention of the service was, if it allows people to publish text on the web, it will be used as a chat room, a blog and an advertising outlet.
(In other news: I need to make a “dump tabs into new note dialog” browser #extension)
“Open web technologies”, they said. “Web apps are better because they work anywhere”, they said. Then f*cking chrome goes and f*cking “chrome App Store” “PLEASE USE CHROME TO DOWNLOAD THIS WEB APP” ARRRGGGGHHH
I really can't stress just how brilliant the identengine.com API is. Solves so many problems, implements so many standards, but more importantly: it is truly, truly webby. Forming a graph of a persons profiles by following rel links, then accumulating all that info is a vital building block. Great work Glenn Jones! #indieweb #web
Twitter’s “you only see replies from people you follow if you also follow the target of the reply” model is quite fascinating because it means that, within a particular community, the number of tweets you see is not directly proportional to the number of people you follow. It’s probably square or cubic, perhaps I’ll model it and see.
