TTMMHTM: Apptember, fonts to embed, time API, mobile frameworks and charity hacksWednesday, September 2nd, 2009
Things that made me happy this morning:
- There is a new cafe in my street:
- Font Squirrel has a repository of free fonts to embed via @font-face
- Apptember is a one-month hackathon, no rules, no business model, no prices – just build some good stuff
- Man builds house from Lego – now this is dedication.
- Some very impressive photorealistic Star Wars Illustrations
- Blockchalk has an API now and I am impressed with the ease of approach to keep it totally open
- Both jQTouch and Pretty Mobile are frameworks to make mobile web development easier
- Baseline is a typographical CSS framework
- The Time API is a very clever semantic API that understands natural language to turn it into timestamps
- Browser for the better is a Microsoft campaign that provides food for homeless people when you upgrade to IE8. Seems a bit stretched, but hey upgrade is good!
- Charity Hack is a hackday by Paypal an Justgiving on 19-20th of September in London
- Top Trumps 3D is an interesting concept of Top Trumps with 2D barcodes that turn into augmented reality games.
