A Dao of Web Design What Zen was to the 70’s (most famously with motorcycle maintenance), the Tao Te Ching was to the 90’s. From Piglet and Pooh to Physics and back, many have sought sense in applying the Tao Te Ching to something (the Tao of Physics), or something to the Tao Te Ching (the Tao of Pooh). It can be a cheap trick, but lately it has struck me that there is more than a little to be understood about web design by looking through the prism of the Tao. Article Continues Below Daoism is a philosophy, like Buddhism, a way of living, of being in the world, which stems from a text of great antiquity, the Tao Te Ching, whose 81 “chapters” enigmatically sweep across human experience, but with a strong common theme, that of harmony. For the last couple of years, for better or worse, my life has revolved more than a little around style sheets. What I sense is a real tension between the web as we know it, and the web as it would be. Same old new medium? Controlling web pages#section2 [The Sage] The Way#section5

Bluetooth Keyboard Case for iPad/iPad2 Responsive & Adaptive Web Design If you work in or with the web and make even a modicum of effort to remain buzzword compliant, you're probably uber-familiar with the term "responsive web design." Perhaps you've also heard of "adaptive web design" and "progressive enhancement"? If you're like me, you may have found yourself wondering what exactly these words mean, what the differences are, and why everyone seems so giddy to use them in a sentence.

Designers Are Control Freaks As the web evolved into something that more and more businesses were using, more and more designers could get paid to work on making websites instead of brochures, annual reports, business cards and the like (not that there's anything wrong with those). Tiny Screens & Slow Internet to the Rescue! And then there were iPads A responsive response Fluid GridsFlexible ImagesMedia Queries An adaptive response But, isn't it all so responsive?
