Did you get a visit from the Google Feature Fairy yesterday? I did, and some lovely new colors appeared in the top navigation bar. I saw some changes on the Grand Ol’ Search Engine page, too. Then, a curious little... Continue »

When I started [Gary Hustwit's documentary on the Helvetica typeface](http://www.helveticafilm.com/), I was all "damn you can reverse Helvetica Bold out of any photo and it will look awesome". By the end I was ready to throw up every time I saw it on screen. Continue »

You may have heard that Delicious is shutting down (or not?). Someone on Twitter suggested that a group of engineers should get together on a weekend and build a Delicious clone. In anticipation of this mystery group of people sitting... Continue »

Two years to the week since my first day with Six Apart Services, Six Apart [announced](http://www.sixapart.com/blog/2010/09/say-hello.html) that we will be merging with [VideoEgg](http://videoegg.com) to create a new entity, [SAY Media](http://saymedia.com).

So, I went to Google IO this week and I felt like a total outsider. It's not as though I'm an Apple fanboy, but I do appreciate their products (just as I have concern about their opacity) for their simplicity and popular appeal. The keynotes were pretty heavily anti-Apple though... Continue »

Since April 6 I have attempted to live almost entirely on an iPad as my only mobile computer -- I still carry my iPhone with me everywhere and did use it to do routine things like mobile email, updating Twitter, and the like. During that time I have learned quite a bit about the device and how I interact with my computing platforms. I'll try to sum up most of what I learned although I am still coming to grips with some of my experiences. Here's the thing, the iPad is a little difficult to sum up -- it isn't... Continue »

When I first chose my own adventure, I didn't know what working remotely from home was going to be like. I had never done it before. As programmers go, I'm fairly social. Which still means I'm a borderline sociopath by normal standards. All the same, I was worried that I'd... Continue »

Killjoy McShitsoneverything is right, you definitely shouldn’t buy an iPad. First-generation Apple products always suck. Like those original Titanium PowerBook G4s? Holy crap were those things... well, come to think of it, they were pretty thin and fast. And had... Continue »

We have great blogs of all sorts on TypePad, and we're building our API so you can remix and experiment with your blog (and other public blogs). Here's an example: our friend Simon Wistow has a music blog where a few folks post music videos from YouTube and Vimeo. It's... Continue »

This picture was taken after we'd been working all day on all the scenes that take place in the bowling alley. What you can't see is how Jim and I are trying like crazy not to crack up, on account of something that was said just before the picture was Continue »
