Seth Godin advocates using cookies to distinguish between new and returning visitors to your site: "One opportunity that’s underused is the idea of using cookies to treat returning visitors differently than newbies. It’s more work at first, but it can offer two experiences to two different sorts of people." (Source: In the Middle, Starting) I built this WordPress plugin to implement Seth Godin’s idea.

My conceit, when I started making infographics, was simple. I believed this was a *new way* of expressing and visualizing information, a thoroughly modern and zeitgeisty fusion of data and design. Oh you muppet David… These infographics were created by students of American African-American activist W.E.Dubois in 1902.
Back in June, Iyov posted an excellent photo essay titled "Bible paper bleedthrough," using photos from my review of Cambridge's Pitt Minion NKJV to illustrate just how bad the problem of thin, translucent Bible paper really is. In my review, I described the paper as "relatively opaque," saying the ghosted print image from the reverse of the page was "faint, and not pronounced enough to be distracting." Iyov then used the photos illustrating the review to argue that my assessment shows just how far we've sunk: "…we have become so accustomed to bleedthrough that four layers of text can quality as 'relatively opaque.'"

[Note that this blog entry contains a good bit of markup, including script and SVG, and will probably not syndicate very well.] A bunch of Web platform features involve blurring.

HTML5 Makes a Great Color Picker HTML5 is changing more than just websites — it’s changing the capabilities of browsers, as well. For example, a very clever use of the HTML5 canvas tag allows developer Heather Arthur’s Rainbow color scheme add-on for Firefox to extract a color palette from any webpage. Because browser add-ons — those in Firefox and Chrome anyway — can be built using HTML, they too can take advantage of HTML5′s new tools. In Arthur’s case, that means using the HTML5 <canvas> element to load the entire web page and then use the getImageData function to extract colors.

Pairing typefaces in book design Contributed by book designer, page compositor and layout artist Stephen Tiano. Choosing typefaces is one of the two most important choices you make when designing a book. Aside from a cover photo or illustration, it is the detail that is most out there in front of readers. Fonts* used on a book cover make the initial reading impression and, when properly chosen, prepare readers for how the reading experience will feel when they turn to the first page.
