  1. ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Oral History: Larry David on Crazy Auditions, Art of Cringe | Hollywood Reporter

    Fascinating, particularly as the popularity of languages and frameworks over time is something one is vaguely aware of but never with much certainty. (via Daring Fireball)

  3. David Letterman on Donald Trump and Late-Night TV Today

    I barely saw any Letterman but this was still a fun read. (via Daring Fireball)

  4. Discovering Sketch — .Sketch App — Medium

    Lots of people I know use Sketch but I’d never looked at it. Reading this I can see why people prefer it over Photoshop for many kinds of design. (via Daring Fireball)

    Fascinating to realise quite how different the (mainly) US car industry is to so many other more dynamic, less consolidated ones. (via Daring Fireball)

  6. Paul Ford on HTML5 and the World of Web Standards Bodies

    Nice description of how standards like HTML5 come to be, and why it’s important. (via Daring Fireball)

    “Find default system fonts that exist across common mobile platforms in the form of a handy compatibility table.” (via Daring Fireball)

  8. Butterick’s Practical Typography

    Free online guide, which seems quite good, but… all that attention to detail and he makes it almost impossible to tell what’s a link. Bloody Designer designers. (via Daring Fireball)

  9. How the Banner Ad Was Born | Digiday

    On the first banner ad, created at HotWired in 1994. (via Daring Fireball)

  10. The ‘Whoa’ Business Model

    Yes, this, a thousand times. Every time I go to the cinema and have to sit through loads of ads, I hate cinemas. (via Daring Fireball)

  11. Apple’s design problems aren’t skeuomorphic « counternotions

    A really good look at the more fundamental problems with iOS and OS X, how that compares with the old days when the Human Interface Guidelines were the law, and whether one person, Ive, can really keep on top of such a wide range of potential problems. (via Daring Fireball)

  12. The Magical Tech Behind Paper For iPad’s Color-Mixing Perfection | Fast Company

    I do like this use of maths to make something “feel” right to users. (via Daring Fireball)

  13. Top Ten differences between White Terrorists and Others | Informed Comment

    Brilliant. One for the asymmetry file. (via Daring Fireball)

  14. Building and dismantling the Windows advantage | asymco

    Blimey, those are quite some graphs, showing ratio of Windows:Mac, and Windows:Apple sales over time. (via Daring Fireball)

  15. Tumult Hype

    HTML5 authoring tool, for making animations, interactive thingummies, etc. $50. Hadn’t seen it before, looks good for complex stuff. (via Daring Fireball)

  16. Le Sibère Carnet de Christophe Courtois: affiche

    Amzing collections of film posters that look almost identical. It’s almost laugh-out-loud how similar so many are. (via Daring Fireball)

  17. Views Differ on Shape of Earth, Climate Edition

    How few Americans have any idea what percentage of scientists think climate change is real. Depressing, and why the BBC (and others) shouldn’t try to be “balanced” about the issue. (via Daring Fireball)

  18. Opinion - Image - NYTimes.com

    Graphs and charts showing how inequality and household debt in the USA have risen since 1980, especially compared to the more equitable period from 1945-80 (even though productivity was still rising then too). (via Daring Fireball)

  19. Rentzsch.tumblr.com: HOWTO Use UTF-8 Throughout Your Web Stack

    A couple of things for future reference. (via Daring Fireball)

  20. Redesigning And Re-Thinking The News | Drawar

    More new stuff on redesigning news websites. This is all part of a good discussion, but it doesn’t feel like we’ve moved on much. Yet. (via Daring Fireball)

  21. Designing a big news site is about more than beauty » Nieman Journalism Lab » Pushing to the Future of Journalism

    Good thoughts on why designing news websites is hard. Maybe it’s impossible with one design: too many competing stakeholders and use cases. (via Daring Fireball)

  22. Luna’s Café: Typography is about reading – and so are ebooks

    There are a few reasons I’ve never bought a Kindle book, and this thoughtlessness on the part of publishers and Amazon is one. (via Daring Fireball)

  23. The REAL Death Of The Music Industry

    Some good graphs and stats about the US recorded music industry. I’m amazed at how few albums and singles per capita are bought, even at the industry’s peak (now: 1.25 albums, 3.7 singles, per year). (via Daring Fireball)

  24. The Economics of Blogging and The Huffington Post - NYTimes.com

    “One reason that The Huffington Post gets a lot of criticism for not paying its bloggers is because most people think of it as a publishing company, when really — like Facebook — it is more of a technology company.” (via Daring Fireball)

  25. Isotope

    Blimey, that’s a whizzy bit of jQuery for rearranging things on a page. I’m expecting to see a whole lot of that soon. (via Daring Fireball)

  26. Gimme Shelter | Studio Multitracks

    Fascinating to hear the tracks in isolation. Unfortunately most of the other examples on the site only seem to have one isolated track for each song, but still. (via Daring Fireball)

  27. iPad View Source Bookmarklet - Ravelrumba

    What it says. Could be handy. (via Daring Fireball)

  28. Coding Horror: So You’d Like to Send Some Email (Through Code)

    Things you should do when sending email via code. (via Daring Fireball)

  29. Michael Mace on What’s Wrong With RIM

    Really good and clear description of why RIM could be in big trouble, despite currently good financial results. Ignoring the RIM/Blackberry specifics, well worth a read for general diffusion of innovation and R&D type stuff. (via Daring Fireball)

  30. Lu.ma - LoopIt

    Nice camera strap for small cameras. I’ll forget what this is called if/when I ever want one. (via Daring Fireball)

  31. My Cooking Diary - Granola bars

    Beautiful HTML/CSS/Javascript coverflow-like site that you’re better off looking at than me trying to describe. (via Daring Fireball)

  32. Confessions of a Tea Party Casualty | Mother Jones

    Fascinating to read about the “tea party-isation” of the Republican party, with more reasonable office-holders running scared. Scary, but fascinating. (via Daring Fireball)

  33. Panic Blog » Coda Notes for Safari: Now Available!

    That is very, very nicely done. And useful. (via Daring Fireball)

  34. Welcome to our new story pages - msnbc.com

    Bravo for trying something a bit new. But it still looks cluttered, slightly baffling, has pop-under adverts… Feels like “LOOK AT ALL OUR STUFF!” rather than being easy to read/view. (via Daring Fireball)

  35. Helvetica: Old and Neue - ITCFonts.com

    I’ve never got round to looking up the differences between Helvetica and Helvetica Neue. Now I know. (via Daring Fireball)

  36. CSS for iPhone 4 (Retina display) « Thomas Maier – web & communication designer

    Including CSS only for devices with the iPhone 4’s pixel resolution. (This is all getting more complex than all that copying with NS4, IE5, Mac IE5, etc, etc.) (via Daring Fireball)

  37. HTML5 Readiness

    Handy (HTML5/CSS3) diagram of which HTML5/CSS3 features are in which browsers. (Upshot: I can’t use any of it yet for production sites.) (via Daring Fireball)

  38. VaultPress

    Handy cloud-based backup for WordPress sites. Although I’d still want to keep your my own backup. I still don’t trust the cloud. (via Daring Fireball)

  39. David Mamet’s Master Class Memo to the Writers of The Unit | Movieline

    I’m a sucker for writing tips, whatever medium they’re intended for. (via Daring Fireball)

  40. The Stars Look Down – Jeffrey Zeldman Presents The Daily Report

    I’m not hugely bothered whether Favrd exists or not, but I like Dean Allen’s comment here, especially the first major paragraph. (via Daring Fireball)

  41. Penalty! Unnecessary Blandness! Redesigning the Worst NFL Helmet Graphics | Yes to Less | Fast Company

    I’ve noticed that most of the more recent helmet designs (eg, Patriots, Buccaneers, Panthers, Jaguars, Ravens) are a bit rubbish. (via Daring Fireball)

  42. What Startups Are Really Like

    I love descriptions of start-ups and businesses like this. (via Daring Fireball)

  43. The 3 key parts of news stories you usually don’t get at Newsless.org

    We get “What just happened”. We don’t get “The longstanding facts”, “How journalists know what they know” and “The things we don’t know”. Good stuff. (via Daring Fireball)

  44. Op-Ed Columnist - Swan Songs? - NYTimes.com

    On the changing state of the recorded music industry, mostly for the fascinating ‘Music Sales’ graphic on the left. (via Daring Fireball)

  45. Maker’s Schedule, Manager’s Schedule

    Seems so obvious now it’s been put into words. If I have a meeting in a morning or afternoon I know that half of the day will be a right-off for all other useful work. (via Daring Fireball)

  46. Developer Color Picker

    Quite handy, although I wish it gave the option to display the Color Values in CSS friendly hex too. (via Daring Fireball)

  47. The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs: I’m really thinking maybe I shouldn’t have yelled at that Chinese guy so much

    Can we have the second and third paragraph printed in big letters as the first thing anyone sees when they open the packaging on a new shiny thing? (via Daring Fireball)

  48. I-Movix SprintCam v3 NAB 2009 showreel on Vimeo

    Beautiful slow motion video shot using very high speed cameras, up to 2500 frames per second. (via Daring Fireball)
