Parking Garage

In Google labs we have Living Stories “an experiment in presenting news, one designed specifically for the online environment…” Interesting. I recall being excited about Wikipedia’s News coverage, take the entry on Hurricane Katrina for example. The format steps away from the ‘old fashioned’ model of news as a series of historic articles and stepped into the future of news as a single, always evolving, article. Living Stories’ The War in Afghanistan for example. The future is now.

NPR visits a parking garage exhibit at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. Just a hair more interesting than it sounds. / The Japanese Addressing system, and other opposites / Some sounds from The Jazz Loft Project / New art from vasco mourao / Subscribe to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Artwork of the day RSS feed. If only they’d get to the point and offer up large images right off the bat, their subscribers would really really enjoy it. A for effort. / I dig the HTML layout of this Nolan Johnson article from the Skateboard Mag. All print-like on the web. Nice link in the second headline. Print is dead, long live print. / Movie title screens, a set of illustrations on Flickr. / Nerd alert: Optimizing HTML, some fantastic tips to steer you towards “having a solid and robust foundation to build upon”. Well said, well done. Kinda. Things get a bit carried away towards the end and they end up promoting some bad practices. Look for the gems.
