I've been behind on my link dump
There have been so many things sitting in Google Reader that I've starred waiting to be looked at and shared. So it's time for another link dump just to get them all out there:
- Web design tools and resources I use
- AJAX APIs Playground
I wish something like this was around when I first built my CTA Google Map. What a great way to play around with the different Google APIs before making a commitment to them.
GOP100 - Deconstructing Dumbo, self published book
As a fan on design and iconography (and pretty anti-republican in my thinking) this sample of interpretations of the Replican party's elephant logo as me cheering. I love how they took the recognizable mark of the beast and turned each one into a story; the stories of continued failure of the previous administration. Created by Thomas Fuchs and Felix Sockwell.
This is a fantastic story about how the "mystery" behind that iconic HOPE image created by Shepard Fairey was solved. Who was the photographer behind the image that Fairey created? The story started here: The Year in Pictures: Mystery Solved and ended here a week later Found - AGAIN - the Poster Source Photo (Scene on the Road) Inquirer photographer Tom Gralish
The photographer is MANNIE GARCIA, a Washington DC freelancer for the Associated Press.
I love this:
So, it looks like the image that poster artist Shepard Fairey said looked presidential, telling the Washington Post: "He is gazing off into the future, saying, 'I can guide you,'" actually showed our new president listening to George Clooney. Or, probably more likely, fellow Senator Sam Brownback (R-Kan.).
Speaking of the new President of the United States, once again The Boston Globe hits another home run with their "Big Picture" series. Some AMAZING shots from Tuesday, January 20, 2009 - Inauguration Day
And if you're curious as to what the front pages of nearly EVERY newspaper looked like the day Barack Obama was sworn in you have to check out http://c6.going.com/obama/inauguration_headlines.html
Lastly, on a lighter note, I'm in love with this t-shirt "I Do Mass Quantities of Code". It's a great play on multiple words. When one writes code they say they have written "lines of code" as in "How many lines of code is that function?" "About 4000 lines." And the lines are 0's and 1's (binary). Oh, and Code = Coke.
