Clear illustration showing that the Eastern time zone is too wide. There's a full 4 sun-hour gap edge to edge.
How wrong is your clock (compared to where the sun is in the sky)?

Top JS/CSS3 experiments of 2013

Crazy amount of inspiration ( - check out the most popular projects on CodePen in 2013. I've seen some of these before, but there are still some real gems in there.

Love browsing through CodePen - there are of course no shortage of impressive JavaScript and CSS3 apps online these days - but CodePen is about small pieces of code that solve a specific issue and are sometimes real works of art (like for example I'm in love with Animated Radio Input demo below).

A few of my personal favorites in no particular oder:
Spread ( by +Mathias Paumgarten 
Reactive Transitions ( by +Yogev Ahuvia 
Dashed Shadow ( by Lucas Bebber
:focus tooltip ( by +Victor Pegado 
Input Love ( by +Michael Arestad 
Sakura ( by c5h12
Jelly Menu ( by LegoMushroom
Twitter Button ( by +Bennett Feely 
Hyperspace ( by +Noah Blon 
Yahoo Weather slider ( by +Chris Coyier 
Multiplane Demo ( by +Nick Pettit 
Animated Radio input ( by +simurai plus 
Drawing with text ( by +Tim Holman 
A circular form ( by +Yogev Ahuvia again
Animated text fill ( by +Daniel Riemer 
Audio Visualisation ( by +Justin Windle 
Seconds Counter ( by Martin Grand
12 Fancy Buttons ( by +Bartek Drozdz 
Kontext ( by +Hakim El Hattab 
Shape Shifter ( +Kenneth Cachia 
Sketch.js ( by +Justin Windle again

Of course these are just a few of them (+ I left out the really popular ones that I posted before) - but its well worth it to check out the entire list.

And these guys are pretty active pushing out projects that are even crazier but have not made the CodePen 2013 list - so if you're looking for a good source of inspiration for 2014, check out their profiles on G+ (or elsewhere) and add them to your circles.

And keep browsing CodePen from time to time :)

TIL: Benford’s law. Super interesting artifact of many large data sets: 1st digit has a predictable distribution.

This wasn't that long ago...
"In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston marathon. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, ‘Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.’ However, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire marathon.The photographs taken of the incident made world headlines, and Kathrine later won the NYC marathon with a time of 3:07:29."

This is cool

Google Sets
Give it two examples, and Google's spreadsheet can make a list of almost anything. 

Create a new spreadsheet in Google Drive, type mazda in A1 and honda in A2 (the first column), highlight the two cells and then press Ctrl (or Option for Mac) while clicking and dragging the small blue box from the lower-right corner to select additional cells where to place the Google Sets results.

Yesterday +TechCrunch  reported that if you make a spreadsheet in Google Drive (Google Docs, formerly), enter and highlight the names of two beers, and pull down on the corner of the spreadsheet cell while holding Option or Control, the app will automatically fill the following cells with the names of other beers. The information is pulled, seemingly, from nowhere. It doesn't just work for beer, car brands, colors, states, or websites, as reported, but just about any category you can think of.
