I have been working on my own thoughts of evolution of a website. I was thinking about how to make this a timeline when I came across this. It reflects a good bunch of what I do as well.

Stu Nicholls | The CSS Playground

A quick note which ifI remember I will update, if not posterity and haste.

I stumbled across the site and wanted to remember it for those times when I am working with CSS and need some inspiration. I opened my email to mail it to myself and then remembered that I had access to Blogger so that not only would I be able to remember it but Icould share it with all my avid readers.

Earth Day

Apr

After reading another blogs post on Earth Day, I couldn't help but record a few thoughts of my own. He reflected on Silent Spring and the tremondous changes that a single book written carefully but passionately made in the world.

When I stop to think about where my own concern for the environment comes from I have to stop and think of people and my own exposure to places.

In my mid twenties I had the opportunity to travel up a remote river in the Darien jungle. I saw a pair of macaws flitting from tree to tree. Until later I didn't realize what a rare sight it was.

SitePoint Blogs : Down To Business

Three simple criteria Compelling need, budget, timeline. First time that I have seen the three together though and it is intersting that it happens in the context of being equals. I'm not at all sure that it is the key to being equal but it is the key to being professional.

Telecom analysts seem to run in packs. After my conversation yesterday with Tim Ventura about American Antigravity I realize that there is a wide range of interests in this field.

Practical Tips for the craziness in the world

How to Work Extremely Well

It's hard to imagine how hard it is to be practical about something so absolutely important. Too many of us get caught up in the rat race, in making money, in serving customers. In a former life I was always amazed when I came to a meeting prepared, (read the package, thought about the issues, have pertinent questions) how many people hadn't. Those few moments taken for thought were always well appreciated.

Ryze business networking

It's taken a bit to warm up to Ryze networking. I try and spend an hour or two each week checking out pages and trying to find new contacts through Ryze. I can't say that it has worked for me yet but I'm sure that at some point the cows will come home.

Fake Microsoft security update website used to deliver Trojan horse, Sophos reports

Not often I feel an urge to write about security updates. But I recognize the paranoia that many people have about security and I suspect that this one that is going to nab a few people. A little caution goes a long way.
