Github: Vulnerability announced - update your Git clients.
It is astonishing, that on Flickr ...
I can have absolute no views, but someone’s favorited a photo. Astonishing.
Solspace: Significant Price Reduction on Software.
Many EE developers will be dancing over this.
Github/xooyoozoo: BPG Image Comparison.
BPG is pretty impressive. Look at the texture of hair as you compare.
Storify: There is No Fold (with images, tweets).
Finally, someone with recognized authority calls BS on the myth. Thank GOD.
Skeleton 2.0: Responsive CSS Boilerplate.
Lightweight. Not had an opportunity to try it yet, but bookmarked nonetheless.
Keith Cirkel: Why we should stop using Grunt & Gulp.
“You could find that for certain tasks you need to use Grunt, and for others you need to use Gulp or Brunch, so enter the ridiculous world of using build tools to manage your build tools, with such great hits as grunt-brunch and gulp-grunt ...” House-of-cards effect. Yep.
Panic Blog: Transmit iOS 1.1.1.
“Transmit iOS 1.1.1 is out, fixing a few bugs in our surprisingly powerful file management app for your iPhone or iPad. Also, at Apple’s request, we had to remove the ability to “Send” files to other services, including iCloud Drive.” Read the entire thing to understand the problem. Apple? Ball’s in your court.
Apostrophe CMS/Node, MongoDB.
So WYSIWYG, it kind of hurts my brain. YMMV.
Skyline: Evolving CSS Architecture.
Zurb: Foundation for Apps is Here!
I use Foundation quite a bit these days. Still playing with other frameworks, too. But this is nice to know about.
Eager Blog: Releasing Stout, our Static Website Deploy Tool.
Of interest. I use Git > Beanstalk, personally.
How did I not know about this?!! Guess I never looked. My bad.
Another framework, extremely small. Useful for minimal sites.
WaPo: Typewriters are back, and we have Edward Snowden to thank.
The New Inquiry: The Ladies Vanish.
“Much like the man who jams a chess grandmaster into a dark cage in order to be celebrated for “inventing” the cage, Amazon has built a massive network of casualized internet laborers whose hidden work helps programmers and technological innovators appear brilliant.” The new sweatshops.
When a Client Hasn’t Paid: Just Tell Julie.
Vimeo: Kanban - isn‘t it just common sense?
Wonderful stuff within.
BusinessInsider: The Guardian’s Dark Social Traffic Problem.
Adobe Education: The University of Texas at Austin Develops its First Course App.
“College students utilize mobile devices to consume all their digital content and they prefer apps to websites to access information, engage with their social networks and share their opinions.” Developers take note.
CSS-Tricks: Taking Control of the CSS/JS that WordPress Plugins Load.
Yes please. Speed up those plugin-contaminated slow-loading installs, please.
Indianapolis Business Journal: The tragedy of electronic medical records.
FYI. I’ve related my experience of a year or so ago ... sitting while a physician’s attendant hunt-and-pecked information into an EHR system for 45 minutes, something I volunteered to do and could have performed in five. Afterwards, they *still* screwed up insurance/billing.
I have a feeling this is like the current electronic accounting market. Dozens of brands of customized software, all storing info in different ways, none compatible with another. Or am I wrong?
TechCrunch: W3C Declares HTML5 Standard Complete.
When I visit Metafilter via RSS, I’m seeing a very modern redesign. Anyone else? Looks nice.
[Later: Ah, new design when I’m logged out, old design when I’m logged in. DNS percolating changes, I assume.]
