Legislative Explorer.

A one of a kind interactive visualization that allows anyone to explore actual patterns of lawmaking in Congress.”  Fascinating.  Takes a bit to learn what it does.  Pull the left-hand slider and zoom in, first. You’ll take off from there.

Code as Craft: Re-Introducing Deployinator, now as a gem!

If you aren’t familiar with Deployinator, it’s a tool we wrote to deploy code to Etsy.com. We deploy code about 40 times per day. This allows us to push smaller changes we are confident about and experiment at a fast rate. Deployinator does a lot of heavy lifting for us.Via rc3.org.

SF New Mexican/Science Matters: The Internet giveth and the Internet taketh away.

The new study was able to measure a second problem, known as content drift, that describes the change over time that occurs in most linked documents or references. Does the link still connect to the version of the document that was intended? If not, there is content drift. By combining content drift with link rot, the researchers were able to come up with a metric for what they call reference drift or reference rot, indicating how far out of alignment the basic documents were with their intended links. In the archives studied, 20 percent of the articles were not reliably moored to their references.” Link of the day. Roger gives us a great one. If I go back to my oldest archives, if 80% are not rotted, I’m surprised.

Youtube: Nobody Tells This To Beginners.

Yes. In my parlance, “Iterate faster, iterate better.”  It’s not enough to do the same thing over and over again. One has to do it, judge it, do better the next time. Keep refining. Or keep stretching. Whatever it takes!

Brad Frost: Over It.

“So keep things simple. Build to standards. Use progressive enhancement. Don’t try to send wheelbarrows full of JavaScript down the pipes unless you have to. Don’t make assumptions. Save the stress for more important things.

Hacking UI: Does Design even matter.

I’ve wondered about this. Great products or services seem to succeed whether they’re running a HTML4 TABLE based layout, or the latest responsive design shizz. Certainly current design can make things better or easier (one-click purchase, for instance). But I’m thinking that working on the product or service may be better $ spent than doing a/b tests on purchase button colors.
