TTMMHTM: New evangelism handbook chapter, safe browsing, challenging IE6, free teaching resources and an answer to the question if hamsters can be milkedMonday, August 3rd, 2009 at 4:04 pm
Things that made me happy this morning:
- I finished a new chapter for the Developer Evangelism Handbook – dealing with your own company
- Google has a safe browsing API that allows you to tap into their malware and spyware database. Sadly enough there is no search or match function – only load a full list of MD5 hashes – and the docs are not the easiest to understand.
- At a recent State Department Town Hall Meeting, one of Hillary Clinton’s staffers asked why IE6 was still mandated. Attagirl, more of this – challenge the laziness.
- You can browse WordNet – the database that Google’s AdSense content matching was based on
- Simon Whatley has 10 commandments of social media
- A nice explanation of rounded corners with CSS3 although it is more of a “here’s how to do it in Firefox and Safari”.
- Apparently you can milk hamsters – there is even a book about it.
- A splendid Wall-E/Star Wars photo mashup from Worth1000
- Space War is a cute little game for the iPhone in CSS/JS/HTML/
- Another nice colourblindness simulator – please, do not add another badge, even if you succeed the test.
- OER commons is a great resource for free teaching and learning content
- Some very sweet Eco friendly packaging concepts
