At first glance, HTML5/CSS seems to have amazing capabilities for next gen UIs: any of the 115 or so style-able properties can be animated. Yet, in modern browsers only two properties, transform, and opacity, can be mutated at 60fps. In this talk, I explain why thats the case, and ask the question, "Should we demand better?"

Excellent post by an old friend of mine +Matt Ackerson from back in the day. Worth the read if you're a site owner or SEO....or pumpkin farmer.
 
Small Business marketers: this is one of the most effective, non-spammy SEO techniques I've found for attracting organic traffic (without spending $1 on ads)...

In this article, I give you numbers and a complete breakdown of how you can apply this in YOUR business

Enjoy and let me know what you think :)

"Authorship lives on, and growing your presence on Google+ has just become huge for everyone." Eye-opening new post by Aaron Friedman:
Search engine optimization professionals were caught off-guard back in June when Google’s John Mueller announced that the search giant would be “simplifying” the way authorship is displayed in search results. This simplification involved the removal of profile photos and circle counts from the search listings of pages with authorship enabled. We all know the author […]

New Android Material Kit for Illustrator  is here.
http://goo.gl/g0g5Xo

What's new?
- More screens
- 10x smaller filesize (~24 MB, all pictures optimized)
   Google documentation had some huge .tiff photos embedded
- MDPI screen size  (export PNG at larger DPI)
- Adjusted color scheme for theming
- Updated AndroidIllustratorWorkflow.png
- Removed ROBOTO2DRAFT font
- added .zip archive for download
- added RobotoSlab

Main difference from http://www.google.com/design/spec/resources/sticker-sheets.html#sticker-sheets-ui-elements is that the interface elements are summed up in one document (Kit) rather than scattered across multiple files. Google documentation is also about guidelines, this Kit is focused on UI elements for your design.

If you need something more specific do use Google resources.

Google documentation is by far the best resource for all design information that you need to know and should always be the starting point. Great job from Google on such detailed documentation and documentation files. 

This kit contains:
- basic interface elements and layouts from http://google.com/design
- Some screens adapted for Material Design and some advanced elements ported from +Taylor Ling Android UI Design Kit for Photoshop 4.4 
- typography styles from official guidelines
- colors from http://google.com/design

Enjoy!

*Thanks JT for workflow tips included in 1.1 
This Kit is not in correlation with Adobe or Google. It is something I use for projects and have decided to share it with community

How to cheat the Google+ custom url restrictions

If Google is forcing you to add additional text to the end of the brand name that is in your verified url (ie: yourcompany.com gives you google.com/+Yourcompany_____), simply purchase another domain for $1.99, leaving off your last letter. Be sure it’s a .com (any other TLD, and Google will include the TLD in the unchangeable part of their “custom url” schema). Change your site url to this new url and verify it.

When you then set your page’s custom url, just add the final letter of your brand name in the custom field, and voila. After setting your custom url, you can change the page’s site url back to your original domain, and trash the partial domain you purchased for this.

I can personally confirm that this works, as I just did it for a client’s website (using them as an example below, if my instructions were unclear).

Company Name: Lucky Duck Coffee
Company Domain: luckyduckcoffee.com
Google+ Custom URL: google.com/+Luckyduckcoffee__________ (fml)

Fix Domain Purchased: http://www.luckyduckcoffe.com
- I set dns, added as parked domain in cPanel, & verified in Google Webmaster Tools
- Edited Google+ page site url, changing it to this domain with the missing last character, then verified it instantly with webmaster tools

New Google+ Custom URL: google.com/+Luckyduckcoffe_________
- I added “e” to the end to customize it (thankfully, Google doesn’t have a minimum character limit on the customization field)

Final Custom URL: google.com/+Luckyduckcoffee
- Finally, I edited the site url back to the original primary domain, luckyduckcoffee.com

NOTE: As I said earlier, ONLY use a .COM tld for this temporary “fix” url before wasting money on generic tlds (unless you really want them). Any other tld (even .CO) still get affixed to the uneditable area of the custom url…as in:
- luckyduckcoffee.com … +Luckyduckcoffee___
- luckyduck.coffee … +Luckyduckcoffee___
- luckyduck.club … +Luckyduckclub___
- acreativecollective.co … +Acreativecollectiveco___

Hope this helps a little!

Last year, one of my prized portfolio designs (ArtBookPrinting.com) had an organic SERP worthy of a case study. After being sent into the penguin abyss in 2013 by an incompetent local SEO firm here in Grand Haven, the Google+ posts from 10 months ago still rank on page 1 - and with authorship photos. Almost comical.

Know or love an electrical engineer? Convince them to join Google’s Little Box Challenge to develop a smaller power inverter. Shrinking these important devices could change the world... and there's $1 million on the table for whoever figures out how best to do it.

Introduction
I am a semantic code evangelist, startup bootstrapper, and lover of coffee.

My passions include WordPress, SublimeText, zen coding, responsive web, haute design, and bleeding edge concepts.

As a Creative Developer, I unify the three most vital concepts in web design: exceptional design, semantic code, and usable experience.

Typically I dream in HEX, CSS3 and HTML5, and have been known to design in my sleep before.
Bragging rights
I was the first to hide the banner ad on my MySpace profile using CSS; I founded a highly popularized news aggregation site when I was 14, gaining national media attention upon breaking several high profile stories; and I co-founded one of the first blogging platforms before most knew the meaning of "blog".

Excellent place with a high quality selection of merchandise and brands. The owner, Moses, is really friendly as are all the staff. The men's dress shirt section is off the chain - if you're looking for a hip new look for going out on the weekend to party, definitely stop in to see what they have here.

Very happy with the service that Davis Services provided; Zach was very helpful and did a fantastic job. This is the third time we have used Davis Services, and will definitely continue using them in the future. Two thumbs up for quality of work and customer service.

The BEST late-night stop for a hotdog or warm sandwich after a long night of partying. It's the only place worth going for late-night food after everywhere else has closed without leaving Clematis. The best meals are the Peppered Steak and Greek Chicken. Also the large assortment of hot dogs they offer are OFF THE CHAIN. It takes just a little longer for them to make your food than fast food, but if you want greasy nasty processed food, Burger King is a short drive away. They cook the food right in front of you - and they know how to cook. Highly recommend going here!
