Nice explanation of why CSS is different from other types of programming. It's a positive feature of the Web that we don't have the same control as the printed page. (I keep telling myself.)

(Depending on what browsers you need to support.) This is a nice resource that includes some pure CSS methods for features you'd typically build with JavaScript.
  • "A jQuery plugin for creating big, bold & responsive headlines." This page is a nice demo. Resize your browser to see the headlines at various sizes.
  • "Glue is a simple command line tool to generate CSS sprites." Handy!
  • Ajax spinning image with no image! (A bit heavier than an image, though.)
  • "...it would seem that many who claim to be pro-business are trying to 'save' us from exactly the inclusive, creative, tolerant values that have made America's most successful company possible." Anil connects the dots.
  • UGH. "AT&T's killing their $10/1,000 text plan. Now, you'll have to choose between $20 for unlimited, or forgo a plan and pay $0.20 per message. AT&T calls this 'streamlining.' We call it what it is: an outrageous, gigantic scam."
  • Mat Honan quoting Mike Monteiro: "We used to design things to take us to the moon, now we design things to keep us from getting out of bed." Like!
  • Nice toolkit of design elements for building websites.
  • Deconstructing the new Gmail/G+ interface for design ideas.
  • ok, it's 2011. No site is perfect, but it probably is time to shame sites that store plain text passwords. Especially those sites from big companies with the means to change things.
  • Dear media, please give Andy Rutledge complete control over the design of your sites. Thanks.
