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
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
