I’m a huge fan of DWR’s website, it changes religiously every week. Has a very strong and reliable grid and yet has a new feel constantly. I think it’s a great example of how a front page of an ecommerce site should be done. I’m looking forward to the 2009 screentrawl of [...]

Hero Squad - what google maps was made for

Hero Squad
An amazing idea from Adam Ribaudo (he of sevenup live for the monome). Pick a location, the game places 3 bases randomly on streets, start placing turrets to defend those bases.

Need help with Python webkit2png script

Apologies for the begging post, I’ve been using the awesome script from Paul Hammond that allows you to take screen shots using a non visible webkit (including the flash content).

Japanese Isometric PSA Infomercial

Awesome public service announcement, apparently covering the topic of Japanese food supply issues. I’ve always loved this style ever since the Royskopp music video.
