Teach The Controversy About Barack Obama

Some bare facts.

Barack Obama says the PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE every time he sees an American flag, and he has an American flag in EVERY ROOM in his house. Some days it takes him OVER 45 MINUTES to get out of his house.

And I thought he was a whishy-washy Liberal with no values to speak of. I stand corrected.

Interviewing UI Designers

Silly answers to serious CSS/JavaScript questions:

Me: How do I add a style sheet to my HTML document?

Him: Simple. You click on 'Insert' on the menu bar, and click on "Style sheet".

It would be very funny if it weren't so sad.

Web 2.0 Name Generator

Jeremy's New Media Company Generator remains a golden oldie, but new, desperate times ask for new desperate measures. The Web 2.0 names are even less descriptive than the new media ones.

Web 2.0 Thinking Game

Zeldman on the difference between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0

Web 1.0: Joshua Davis on the cover of Art News.
Web 2.0: 37signals on the cover of Forbes.

Web 1.0: Users create the content (Slashdot).
Web 2.0: Users create the content (Flickr).

Web 1.0: Crap sites on Geocities.
Web 2.0: Crap sites on MySpace.

Truly, Web 2.0 is conquering the world.
