April 2007’s Posts.

  1. The universal Web is hard to do

    Sitting in the keynote for the Mix07 conference, I got intrigued by some of the demos of Silverlight (which is one of the reasons I wanted to come to this). All throughout people like Ray Ozzie have been talking about how its is part of the “univeral web” and can run both on the Mac and other browsers. I happen to to be using a Mac hear (in fact David Crow has the only other that I've seen) and am using Firefox, so…

  11. Harper's redesigns with more meta data

    Great article on handling and responding to "unforeseen projects or tasks that tend to come from nowhere"

  13. Combine and compress
