Tuesday Tech Links: 1.14.14


14 January 2014 | Comments Off

Our dev team’s weekly recurring links to resources and techy stuff that puts some geek in your week!

When you peruse Tuesday Tech Links, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.

Let’s start off here with a huge bummer: The MPAA has joined the W3C.  Rather than continue to write about what a miserable and depressing decision it was to allow the MPAA, a crusader for anachronistic thinking and frivolous lawsuits, to join the W3C, which you’d hope was trying to improve the Internet rather than ruin it, I’ll just toss a couple links in here for you to read.

The Holiday Gift That Wasn’t


9 January 2014 | Comments Off

If you’ve been a FINE friend for awhile, you’re accustomed to fanciful annual gift items: playground balls, pencils, snacks, and even cash moneys to be tossed about like virtual messages in a bottle.

Sometimes, our annual gifts are so elaborate in conception and execution we wonder how they ever get done in time. This year, we decided to keep it relatively simple – a custom notebook for you to chart your own user experience in the new year, debossed with our official seal and some inspiring content and packaging. Not a standard gift by most standards, but still less elaborate than our norm.

Our Pets on the Internet: Episode 4


8 January 2014 | Comments Off

If there’s one thing our staff has in common with the Internet, it’s that they both depend on pets. Pets reduce work-related stress. They inspire much brainywork. One look at them and all artifice slips away – they remind you you’re human. And the more human you are, the more superhuman work you do.

Each week we’ll introduce you to a 4-legged friend that keeps our high-flying agency down-to-earth. Because of good reasons. But mainly, we want our pets to be on the Internet.
