SERoundtable: Google - We Check To See If Your Mobile Site Vastly Different From Desktop.
Of note to desktop/mobile designers: “For now, I suspect they flag these cases and send a manual action reviewer (web spam fighter) to take a closer look.”

Sounds interesting. Bookmarked.
“When a user submits a comment, echochamber.js will save the comment to the user’s LocalStorage, so when they return to the page, they can be confident that their voice is being heard, and feel engaged with your very engaging content. It does not make any HTTP requests. Since LocalStorage is only local, you and your database need not be burdened with other people’s opinions.” Thanks, Jason Levine on FB.

Mashable: Web design is dead
“Symptom 2: Web design patterns are mature.” I beg to disagree. Web design’s gotten boring. Everyone still wants top-slider-three-columns-underneath designs. There are bajillions of those templates, all roughly equivalent. We’ve only started to play with slide-in panels, really, still working out the UI, fighting over mobile layout implementations. There’s still a market for non-standard one-off designs, though it opens you to severe critique from competition because it doesn’t match conventional wisdom. You have to have savvy, trusting clients.

Macworld: Macaw 1.5.15 review: Promising web design program falls short of its goals.
“Though I used to wish for a program like Macaw, the current version left me longing for my days of coding by hand. If you end up feeling the same, take heart: Among its promised features, Scarlet prominently advertises a text editor for your code.” Already have a couple I like, thanks.

Bruce Clay: Google Transcoder - Make Your Site Fast or Google Will.
“At this point, we have no idea when, if at all, this functionality will be implemented anywhere outside of Indonesia. However, Google’s underlying statement is clear: websites should be really, really fast.” Perhaps we should go back to monochrome screens then. Why should Google have such power? Why?
