This week’s internet cruising, in which I was evidently trying to make up for lost time.
Down to six hundred sixteen unread Google Reader items! Here are some of the coolest of the nearly 200 I’ve read in the last couple of weeks (as well as random surfing, of course):
This week’s internet cruising:
- Lymejello – Wow. Speaking of telling difficult stories. Lyme disease is apparently no joke. I remember seeing the photos in middle school health class–a ringed rash, warnings that it could kill untreated, but not that it was so damned debilitating.
- My Hopebuilders 5k page – Yeah, I'm a punk. Go donate and push me to run. If I meet my fund-raising goal, I'll run it hard.
- Tim Gunn Is A National Treasure – "[W]hen I visit department stores and I go to the shop that’s called “woman,” I am horrified! Horrified by the awful, degrading, disrespectful choices that women have."
- 10 Usability Tips Based on Research Studies – A very nice set of usability tips, including some debunking of common UX myths.
- YouTube vs. Fair Use – Apparently, YouTube is getting amazing at detecting copyrighted content. For better or worse.
- With New Rules In Place, Old Overdraft Gimmicks Under Fire – Ah, the old "reordering debits to maximize overdrafts" game. It's good to see it challenged.
- Ask BFD: How Do I Deal With Compliments On Weight Loss? – Because thinner does not equate to prettier.
- DarkPatterns.org – From Elf, this is a nice little collection of web… scams. Or UI trickery. Or something in between.
