The Sartorialist blog has been a big hit, with each post getting dozens of comments. Why? On the surface it’s the usual blogger story: an individual with insight on a particular topic publishes quickly and honestly sans organizational overhead. To me, the Sartorialist does something else important. He delineates the difference between art and design. [...]
Fast Company cited Noise Between Stations as one of seven smart blogs worth following for the latest insider thinking from the design world. Grazie! Link courtesy of Diego.
Cisco just posted a demo of the new Cisco.com site that will launch soon. It’s a good little overview of what customers will notice in the redesign. I was lucky enough to spend time with some of the design team a few months ago. The site will be a fascinating study for several reasons, including [...]
Pushing aside the cobwebs in the Razorfish archives I found a couple interesting specimens. They still hold up, all while reminding us of that period when frames helped us navigate and people took animated gifs seriously. Though they look old, you can simultaneously see how new they were when they were new. Undressed – a [...]
Some super shiny scaly fishy friends were cited for their Movable Type chops. Check ‘em out: Monoki.
Peterme points to Philip Agre’s home page. Wow, there’s a ton of interesting material here on Internet culture, education, and design. Let the foraging begin.
Did anyone else go right for the medicine cabinet? Kinda disappointing ;-)
girlwonder is looking fabulous with her new minimalist boxes-on-white design like, well, like me. Is white the new gray?
hey, I made Peter Morville’s A-list. Though I don’t know why, I haven’t written about information architecture in, like, nine years.
http://www.nycbloggers.com/ Nice presentation, I like seeing who’s blogging in my neighborhood (and so I wonder if navigating by zip code wouldn’t been better than subway line. The subway line joins us across neighborhoods in an egalitarian way, but no one talks to each other on the subway). That there are almost as many bloggers in [...]
I’m off on vacation. I’ll leave you with this 9.11 Tribute site IA’d be a former co-worker of mine. I like that you don’t have to navigate upon arrival, you can simply sit back and absorb it. Sometimes the web can be like film.
Katie Raygun, a 15-year old with attitude, is one of those bloggers that make me feel like a voyeur. I’m 32 and pretending I still understand teenagers, and of course I don’t. Some of it might be contrived, but who cares? She’s got voice, and that’s something I love in a weblog. ‘You wouldn’t know [...]
A site originally IA’d by your’s truly – Tolerance.org – has been nominated for a Webby. I’m not expecting you to cast your People’s Vote or anything like that. But you would be supporting user-centered design and a heavily usability-tested site. And it’s currently in second place. That’s all.
As it re-launches I just discovered The Morning News, a ‘broadsheet’ of headlines and fiction. With writers like Paul Ford, Joshual Allen, and Michael Barrish it’s the Boxes and Arrows of writing on the web. Link courtesy of Maggie. ooh, and they have a review of the new Death Cab for Cutie album, currently on [...]
