The second is that for consumer web apps today, design matters more than technology. Much has been written about how the cloud, accessible web frameworks, etc. have dramatically lowered the cost of getting a startup to market, and that’s certainly true, but it also means that since everyone is on...

...the most glaring deficiency is that you cannot add content from the blog page. The biggest lesson learned from P2 is that if you are looking for “micro” style content, you must put a content add page in the reading page: just like Twitter, Tumblr, and P2 do. via terrychay.com +1. I find myself using the "Blog it" bookmarklet or "Reblog" feature of other Micro blogs most because it's much easier/faster than navigating to the dashboard and composing a post. If the TypePad dashboard toolbar showed up when you're logged in (like Wordpress.com's) it would help reduce clicks (and therefore... Continue »

Recipes come to us in odd little ways. I remember learning how to make truffle omelettes from a gigling, nearly toothless old lady in Southwest France. Of course I took her seriously, she happened to be Marthe Delon, the famous truffle huntress who has been training a truffle-hunting pig a year for over 50 years. She calls them all Kiki - couldn't be bothered to remember a new name each year, she said. This roast chicken recipe came to me from not so exotic a location but no less interesting a source. The scene was the dining room at Manresa, the participants were Laurent Manrique, our dear friend and the famous chef of what I like to call the-dearly-departed-Aqua, his much-fairer-and-better-half Michelle, and yours truly. We had just been served a deceptively simple truffle omelette. Yes they certainly do omelettes at Manresa, hardly a greasy-countertop-diner-variety made from Nearly Eggless GooTM, but one comprised of Porcini puree, freshest farm eggs, and housemade salted butter, oh, yes, and a generous showering of white truffle at the table. It's the kind of dish that made us stopped in our tracks. "Elle m'a mise sur le cul", Laurent said of the dish, a French... Continue »

Let's see... Quick compose, definitely awesome for it's quickness (and nifty help box): Default blog quick-look, because anything with sparklines is +1000 in my book: Custom color schemes from images?

I've been hearing hints and murmurs about something new coming from TypePad for quite some time. Finally I got a sneak peak yesterday...TypePad Micro which launches today at noon Pacific Time. TypePad Micro, according to Chris Alden, CEO of Six Apart is... ...a new, completely free level of TypePad that is streamlined for microblogging. We see this new form of blogging emerging -- living between the short status updates of Facebook and Twitter and the full-length posts of classic blogs -- and we want to make that easy and fun with TypePad Micro. TypePad Micro is free, and comes with...... Continue »

Typepad has long been a staple in the blogosphere. It was the first blogging platform I used and I admit to having a nostalgic attachment to it. Yes, they've been upended to a certain extent by WordPress, but to their... Continue »

Here's the thing: I get that we're destroying the Earth. Global warming, greenhouse gases, deforestation, ozone depletion, air pollution, acid rain (although, is that even still a thing anymore?)... I get it. We're totally fucked. And I do my best,... Continue »
