TTMMHTM:Ajax playground,musings about code as communication,writing better resumesFriday, January 23rd, 2009 at 11:31 am
Things that made me happy this morning:
- Google now has an Ajax API Playground which allows you to play interactively with all their APIs. Great stuff!
- Infovore has some good advice for journalists – learn to think like a coder
- Paul Bucheit shows that you can communicate with code if you are not happy to give presentations and Dion Almaer muses over the real effect of Google’s 20% time for creative work
- Some videos
** In the “ooh shiny” secton there is Easyweb’s Showreel – amazing light projections on buildings.
** In the “what the frick is going on here” section there is Jackie Chan in a fight scene dressing up as Street Fighter characters
- There’s a great series of how to write a good resume on Sqawkfox.com, this time 6 words that make your resume suck
- The Metropolitan Police in London has quite a good messaging service about ‘policing activity or initiatives, crime prevention advice as well as major incidents affecting your area’
- Boagworld has a good list of Effective call to action design
- And last but not least a great quote via kottke.org:
As a general rule, meetings make individuals perform below their capacity and skill levels. This doesn’t mean we should always avoid face-to-face meetings – but it is certain that every organization has too many meetings, and far too many poorly designed ones. – Reid Hastie, behavioral scientist
