"A Latin passage has been used for years by typesetters — and now web designers — as a placeholder for future English text. The World’s Alex Gallafent tries to find out how it became the dummy text of choice." From http://www.theworld.org/?q=node/24087
After a long absence, the Alternative Kitchen Garden is back, with an explanation of why John Innes is all over your bags of compost, and why it’s been so long since the last show. There’s also a new segment – join me for some plant geekery in the Herbarium, where I discuss some of the horticultural and botanical news, what I’ve been reading and what I’ve been blogging about.
Dan and Marco discuss Interface Builder vs. coding views manually, CORS and extreme iframe geekery, the impact of Apple or strong competition entering your market, the oversupply of App Stores, and whether competing tablets are too late to have a chance in the market.
