JPG Magazine went away for a while, but now they’re back. It’s a bit late in the submission process for issue 21, but I put one up anyway: Bentendo and Bridge from one of my Japanese Garden shoots.

Please go vote and maybe I’ll make the magazine.

I just spent the afternoon helping Patrick redesign his consulting site MACHINE METHODS. It’s another study in minimalism in Web design. Hop on over and take a look.

Bruce Parens is up for a seat on the OSI (Open Source Initiative) board. You can read more about them at, but the short version is that they help educate and advocate the benefits of Open Source. They also act as a standards body to maintain the Open Source Definition — basically the traits that make up what Open Source is.

Please read up on the subject, then go sign the petition so that he may be elected to the OSI board.

Thank you!

I remember calling these systems many years ago, in a past lifetime. It was one of the things that got me interested in WWV, NTP, atomic clocks, and other timekeeping systems. Maybe this is the watchmaker’s version of GPS.

If you’re using Dreamweaver and don’t buy this, then stop doing Web design. Just stop. You’ll be doing the whole world an enormous favor.

Eric Meyer is the guy when it comes to CSS. He’s a wizard at it. He’s also a Web standards type of guy too — and you know how I love Web standards.

Heck, I hand-code my stuff and I’ll probably start using it (and Dreamweaver) just to off-load some of the routine stuff so I can get designs done faster.

In looking for something on Google Maps, I happened to find something kind of cool. At least to me it’s cool — then again, I love their shows.

Wow! It’s stuff like this that both fascinates me and makes me sad. Fascinates because it really is astounding work. Saddening because I wish I had thought of it first.

Imagine the Peanuts characters, in their teen years, drawn anime/manga style. You’d end up with something like this guy has done. Be sure to check out all of his “Peanuts Revival” series.

And if that doesn’t work for you, try Young Stormtroopers in Love.

Preach it, Brother Zeldman!
