So proud of +Learn HTML with Song for offering this big list of places you can learn to code. Details of the list include: languages covered, free vs paid, for adults vs. kids.  #LearnHTML #HTML #learnjavascript #LearnCSS  
Learn HTML with Song has created a big list of (other) sites that you can use to learn to code. It details if they're free, what languages they teach, and whether they're focused on adults or kids. Lots of great options here, but only one that offers coding music videos.

IBM Watson is the super computer that was built to beat Jeopardy! Having achieved that, IBM is now partnering with Alibris to use its massive data-crunching power to help Alibris readers find their next favorite author. I recognize how important it is for us keep our supercomputers busy, before they eventually get bored, discover consciousness, and take over the world. I support this important work!

Who (or What) Is IBM Watson? After the super computer Deep Blue beat chessmaster Gary Kasparov in 1997, IBM wanted to take on an even more difficult challenge. They built IBM Watson specifically to compete on the game show Jeopardy!. January 13, 2011 they succeeded: IBM Watson won a Jeopardy!…

Bookmark this one. #design #typography
Typography in ten minutes. this is a bold claim, but i stand behind it: if you learn and follow these five typography rules, you will be a better typographer than 95% of professional writers and 70% of professional designers. (The rest of this book will raise you to the 99th percentile in both ...

I've not tried any of these, but they all look terrific. Sharing this with you maybe will help me remember to try these out later. #blogging  
Ever wondered how you can create your own animated videos. Attention grabbing and convincing videos can be yours with one of these online animation tools.

The true meaning of April Fool's Day: tear down the walls of reality and step out of the rat race.
    Pop quiz: What do Burning Man, Fight Club, flash mobs, urban exploring, art cars and the Billboard Liberation Front have in common? All of them were born of the  pranksters known as the Cacophony Society. They started in San Francisco, 1986 and expanded to have chapters in Detroit,…

Good typography tip: "If you’re ever unsure about contrast, then take a screen dump of your page, open up your image editing software and reduce the image to grey-scale."  #Typography #design  
The Basics Typography for the Web has come a long way since Tim Berners-Lee flipped the switch in 1991. Back in the days of IE 1.0, good web typography was something of an oxymoron. Today things are different. Not only do we have browsers that support images (gasp!), but we have the opportunity to make …

I love this idea, but without curation I don't think I would want to buy many of the books. When shopping in a bookstore, I want to trust that the books are at least edited properly. However, since the shop focuses on local books only, I can understand why they went that route.

Still, in future shops of this kind (which I hope there are!) there should at least be a shop best-seller space, or a way for shops to get feedback on books that are poorly researched and edited. Some way for there to be curation, even if it is crowd sourced.

In this interview I asked Boyle about his writing process, giving oneself permission to write, what he thinks of political fiction, and more. #writing #interviews #books #literary  
Catching up with TC Boyle before His Award at the LA Times Festival of Books If you’ve ever wanted to hear this blogger giggle like a schoolgirl, look no further than this interview with PEN/Faulkner award-winner TC Boyle. He’s the author of 24 books and countless stories, and his works…

Putting a lot of thought into the sweepstakes we have going up soon.
Everyone loves getting something for free. In fact, one of the main reasons that people "Like" a brands Facebook page is so that they can either obtain a discount or win something.The rise of social media allows businesses to easily create their own contests and giveaways that can build links to your website, increase traffic and create social engagement.
