  2. John Allsopp – The Dao of Web Design Revisited | Web Directions

    In 2000, when the web was less than half the age it is now, when the concept of web standards was still not much more than an ember carefully nurtured by a small group of practitioners who might fairly have been called fanatics (and less charitably, but just as accurately, lunatics), John Allsopp wrote “A Dao of Web Design”.

    Little did he know, and even less can he believe, that more than a decade later, an eon in internet years, it is still widely quoted by some of the web’s most well known and respected practitioners, and considered by some to be a seminal text in web design.

    So, ten years later, what does John now think about his thesis, and his suggestions for developers? In a world of highly fragmented user experiences, across all manner of screen sizes and input modes, what now seems hopelessly naïve? What if anything, stands the test of time. And what, if anything, new has John learned as he has continued to develop with web technologies over the last 10 years.

    Come and listen as John revisits a Dao of Web Design.

  3. Interview with Matt Mullenweg – part 1

    Joost and Frederick interview the founder of WordPress, Matt Mullenweg, talking about loads of things. The entire interview was split in 2 because it was a bit lengthy, so you’ll hear part 2 next week.

    In this part we discussed the ’3.org’ project: fixing everything about WordPress that is not WordPress itself, so we discussed WordPress profiles (check Joost’s here) and how they want to integrate those with WordCamps and some of the new APIs that the team is developing and improving. We also touched on what happens / is going to happen to orphaned plugins.

    Then going on we discussed the Automattic product line, and where the focus of the 50 people at Automattic is at the moment, WordCamps and even what’ll be (or might be) in WordPress 3.1

  4. Nietzsche today - is philosophy relevant to education?

    Some philosophical scholars believe the our education system should make the teaching of philosophy more of a priority, so that people can understand the basics of philosophy and better understand and critically evaluate the teachings of the world’s most influential philosophers. We mined some philosophy experts on the matter and examined what potential impact a lack of philosophy has on how we contextualize philosophical ideas today.

  6. Steve Jobs: ‘Computer Science Is A Liberal Art’ : NPR

    Everyone should be able to harness technology, Jobs told Fresh Air’s Terry Gross in 1996. In memory of Apple’s co-founder and former CEO, we listen back to excerpts of their conversation. "Our goal was to bring a liberal arts perspective … to what had traditionally been a very geeky technology," he said.

  9. Everything The Network Touches

    The work we’re collectively doing—opening up gradually all of human information and media, making it recombinable, helping people create and share their work—is a huge unspoken, sexy, world-redefining mission.

    It’s a mission that many of us have become blasé about, almost unaware of. It’s a project so large that it’s hard to get a grasp on. And the next few years are going to get even more interesting as the network pervades physical objects and environments, sensing and manifesting information in the real world.

    It’s time to recognise the scale of the project we have in front of us, the breadth of the material we have to work with, and the possibilities of design within it. All of human knowledge, creativity—even the planet itself—is our canvas.
