To honor its crusty-ness I’ve aged the site’s color palette some, like a fine, aged, um, newspaper? Enjoy.
Because I’ve been so quiet around these parts lately here’s a big ole list of links for the web builder in you!
- Microsoft IE7 RC1 is out
- On CSS changes in IE7
- WebKit Update News talks of recent changes including ”[m]uch improved support for HTML editing”.
- John Allsopp Explains the magic of microformats at Vitamin
- Technorati wants a professional front end person
- Ma.gnolia updates their APIs, and adds support for the del.icio.us API. I can only assume someone is madly working on Flock integration as a result.
Place Name Where? is a personal information aggregator that tries to reverse the trend of decentralized content contributions that seems to be one of the core features of “Web 2.0” sites.
Web 2.0 is great, but at a certain point one can feel too distributed. You’ve got news stories here, pictures of your pet dust bunnies over there, and in the cellar you keep your favorite wines. Each service is kind enough to provide ways to include the content you added to their site back into your own site, but typically this is limited to a presentation that doesn’t go further then “hey, look at the last 10 things I did on this other site”.
This aggregator isn’t intended to be a stand alone site forever—though it does work fairly well as such. I need to find some time to spend working on design and integration issues, but I hope it won’t be too long until the ideas behind Place Name Where? are integrated into this site and appear both in place of the current “link” lists as well as integrated into tag lookups and maybe search results.
