Resignation + Shatner = Poetry

William Shatner Makes Palin's Speech Into Poetry In fairness, images of fish swimming inside barrels come to mind.

IQJam – enterprise collaboration

IQJam reads to me like an intranet version of Stack Overflow. I actually had a similar idea many years back when it seemed pretty obvious that so many organisations were facing the same problem – properly identifying and utilising their internal resources correctly. Of course, I didn’t follow through and write an app to handle it, but hey, great minds think alike and it’s the thought that counts, right?

Should you use a flash intro?

A useful and thorough flow chart to help you analyze and decide on whether your site will be enhanced by the use of a flash intro.

Alienology features a user interface which I find surprisingly intuitive to use, even though it’s in Flash.

Meeting Cost Calculator

The title speaks for itself as to what this Windows Mobile application does – the metrics you uncover with this thing might not be welcomed in your organisation, but hey, as long as someone gets a chuckle out of it.

IE6 update

IE6 Update is a simple if somewhat devious piece of jQuery code, which provides IE6 users with a Windows styled message which attempts to get them to update IE6 to something usable. Possibly a valiant effort, possibly unethical. Tags: jQuery, JavaScript

Dental Aid Fail

Childrens Dental Aid Fail – although really, it’s freakishly inspiring, isn’t it?

Check out my package

100+ Minimal and Typographic Package Designs contains exactly what the title implies. It’s an interesting thing to be scrolling through products doing nothing other than appreciating their packaging (i.e. judging books by their covers). Also interesting is reflecting on the fact that these packages could potentially influence my personal purchasing decisions. Hmm.

“No SQL for me please, I’m trying to cut down”

"Thoughts on the NoSQL movement" – I’ve noticed a few people talking about the whole noSQL thing, and how relational database are “falling out of favour” with the industry as of late. Sounds like an argument on the verge of becoming very evangelistically inclined – how about just using whatever tool is suited for the task at hand?
