HTML5 – The Future of the Web

Steve Jobs was recently quoted as saying “No one will be using Flash. The world is moving to HTML5” igniting interest in HTML5 and sparking numerous debates online in blogs and forums. Those pursuing careers in web design and development took special interest on this subject. Jobs’ prediction that flash is dead invokes memories of the famous Mark Twain quote “reports of my death are greatly exaggerated“. While the debate rages on over the future of Flash, HTML5’s destiny is assured. It’s not just Apple pointing to HTML5 as an internet revolution, Microsoft, Google, Opera, Mozilla, W3C and even Adobe themselves agree. In fact HTML5 may become historic for that very reason. It is arguably the only time Google, Microsoft and Apple have ever agreed on anything. How HTML5 evolved was largely due to a disagreement with the W3C over Error Handling and the failure to embrace modern Internet applications. … Continue reading

What Does it Take to Max Out Your Mafia Wars Position?

I’ll admit it, I have a guilty pleasure and its name is Mafia Wars. I sincerely doubt I’m alone in this regard, but that doesn’t make it any less silly. There are millions of other players out there right now who take this thing way more seriously than I ever will and that’s at least mildly comforting. So, when I stumbled upon a guide the other day that claimed to help you reach the top of the pile where all the elite mafias are sitting I was a little dubious. These guys pour hours of their life into the game. How can I be one of them without doing the same? It’s expensive, right? How it Works So, rather than wonder if I’d be forever at the bottom of the pile (I’m just a bit competitive after all), I decided to check out the guide and see exactly what it … Continue reading

Social Marketing vs Generic SEO – What’s The Difference?

There are many different methods of marketing your business website, on-line shop or e-commerce website, but for many business owners there seems to be a bit of confusion between what is considered generic back link building and what is a true social marketing campaign, and more to the point what is the aim of each marketing strategy? Different SEO and web marketing companies will of course employ different methodologies to promote a site and more often than not you get what you pay for so to speak. Equally there is bound to be a crossover in campaign strategies the debate of which could go on for months, but the purpose of this article is to highlight the key differences and aims of each type of campaign not what any single campaign should contain.

Flash and Standards: The Cold War of the Web

You’ve probably heard that Apple recently released the iPad. The absence of Flash Player on the device seems to have awakened the HTML5 vs. Flash debate. Apparently, it’s the final nail in the coffin for Flash. Either that, or the HTML5 community is overhyping its still nascent markup language update. The arguments run wide, strong, and legitimate on both sides. Yet both sides might also be wrong. Designer/developer Dan Mall is equally adept at web standards and Flash; what matters, he says, isn’t technology, but people. Bookmark It Hide Sites

Web Standards for E-books

E-books aren’t going to replace books. E-books are books, merely with a different form. More and more often, that form is ePub, a format powered by standard XHTML. As such, ePub can benefit from our nearly ten years’ experience building standards-compliant websites. That’s great news for publishers and standards-aware web designers. Great news for readers, too. Our favorite genius, Joe Clark, explains the simple why and how. Bookmark It Hide Sites

Give Away Events or JV giveaway events

The Internet itself changed the way that people buy things. People no longer have to get dressed, drive into town, find a parking place, stand in line or wear out their shoe leather searching for the products and services that they want. Three cheers for the Internet! Internet marketers devised ways in which to reach their customer base that were unheard of in the brick and mortar world of advertising and now these giants of innovation have come up with yet another method that defies all of the principles of advertising that have been established over the years. This new and innovative marketing technique that I’m talking about is called a “give away event” or a “Joint Venture give away event” or “jv giveaway events”. Can you imagine a group of brick and mortar stores getting together and agreeing to give free ‘stuff’ to one another’s customers? I can’t either. … Continue reading

On Web Typography

Until now, chances are that if we dropped text onto a web page in a system font at a reasonable size, it was legible. But with many typefaces about to be freed for use on websites, choosing the right ones to complement a site’s design will be far more challenging. Many faces to which we’ll soon have access were never meant for screen use, either because they’re aesthetically unsuitable or because they’re just plain illegible. Jason Santa Maria, a force behind improved type on the web, presents qualities and methods to keep in mind as we venture into the widening world of web type. Bookmark It Hide Sites
