Web designers and programmers who need to specify colors must use a special code. This code can amazingly in this day and age not be found directly within the Mac OS X color panel. What do you have to do to get it? Launch Photoshop for the sole purpose of getting a six digit number? Calculate it for yourself with Calculator’s hexadecimal mode, TextEdit and some patience? We tried that once, it was nothing but pain and frustration.
Along comes Hex Color Picker to put an extra tab in the…
Donald Miller still loves God and Jesus. Don’t misunderstand him. Five years after he wrote “Blue Like Jazz,” Donald Miller’s book on Christianity becomes a hit. His problem is with Christianity, at least how it’s often practiced. “It’s a dangerous term so I try to avoid it,” said Miller, who considered giving up his career as a Christian writer and leaving the church in 2003 because he couldn’t attend services without getting angry.
While driving up to Sonoma the other day in my lovely Zipcar (this time I picked a Mazda 3 for the iPod jack, but next time, I’m taking the Mini Cooper), I wondered to myself why anyone in close proximity to Zipcars, public transit and other great transportation alternatives would even WANT to own a car. I remember owning a car and all of the freedom it ostensibly gave me. I could come and go as I please…except when the car was having troubles or I couldn’t find a good parking…
This experience has hammered home this point for me about social media: it works best when you view it as a way to create value, not as a tool to extract value. When I didn’t ‘get’ Twitter before, it was because I was trying to extract value from it, without really providing any.
One of the core messages that came out of the Media Web Meetup III: the Producers was this:
Copyright laws, DMCA, etc. were tools that were instituted to help large organizations protect themselves from large organizations, it did not imagine the negotiations of individual producers in the Open Media Web. Instead of bringing the massive amount of baggage these tools wield into our communities of indie content producers, we should start talking…

Design professionals once ignored CSS, chalking it up to nothing more than a fad that would eventually fade into the background.

Here we take a look at six of the best beginner CSS resources available on the web.

This is the time of year where Apple nutcases go berserk - present company not excluded, but this particular year there seems to be a little extra excitement on the web. Part of that is due to Apple’s marketing spin of placing banners and billboards all over San Francisco saying, “There’s Something In […]
So, on New Years Eve, a bunch of us picked a ‘Themeword’ (credit for the idea goes to Erica Douglas) and mine was pretty clearly: TRANSITION. I saw 2008 as a year of wrapping up things in progress (or things I needed to finally take care of) and moving onto my next phase in life (whatever that may be). It just popped into my head and there it was.
The morning brought the first transition. This was one I didn’t foresee on New Years, but was one that arose nonetheless. Chris…
This project has been in the works for some time. Family Planning Health Services of Wausau approached me with an idea to build a website. Their main goal was to network with like minded organizations and individuals in a way that would illicit dialogue and pass along information.
Additionally, the site would serve as a home to a brand new podcast aimed at informing their target audience.It’s all very new still, but having the opportunity to work with some of my favorite people while…

IcoMaker can make small icons attached to Web pages, so-called “favicon.ico”.

I’ve been working out for nearly three months now, all the while watching what I eat a little more carefully and staying committed to a pretty regular and fairly vigorous workout: 25 minutes on the elliptical trainer, 25 minutes on the treadmill (briskly walking for 5 minutes, jogging for 15 minutes, then cooling down for 5 minutes), a 10-minute ab workout (mostly from pilates class) and some quick weights if I have time. I’ve been doing this 3-4 times per week and have noticed that I’m…

A quality logo design combined with the branding of an organization or company can become one of the most powerful forces in today’s society.

Sources are suggesting that Apple may include WiMax, the high-speed, long-range wireless broadband technology, in an ultraportable 13″ notebook computer, and possibly across the entire MacBook Pro line. Just part of the rumor mill flying in preparation for Steve Jobs’s Macworld keynote next week in San Francisco, of course, but our source gives it a […]
