20 awesome examples of street art If you still need a proof that art can be found anywhere, those awesome examples of great street art should convince you. Learn to Program, by Chris Pine A Place to Start for the Future Programmer I guess this all began back in 2002. I was thinking about teaching programming, and what a great language Ruby would be for learning how to program. Unfortunately, there wasn't much Ruby documentation geared for newbies at the time. And it wasn't very good. What saved me was that I made it really easy for people to contact me, and I always tried to help people when they got stuck. A couple of years later, it was getting pretty good. :-) So good, in fact, that I was ready to pronounce it finished, and move on to something else. It took me another year, but now I think it's really good, mostly because of the hundreds of brave souls who have helped me write it. What's here on this site is the original tutorial, more or less unchanged since 2004. Thoughts For Teachers There were a few guiding principles that I tried to stick to. Another principle I've kept in mind is to teach only one way to do something. About the Original Tutorial Acknowledgements

History and Geography of Europe A Daily Dose of Architecture The Book Surgeon (15 pieces) Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time. Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. Dettmer manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his sculptures. He also folds, bends, rolls, and stacks multiple books to create completely original sculptural forms. "My work is a collaboration with the existing material and its past creators and the completed pieces expose new relationships of the book’s internal elements exactly where they have been since their original conception," he says. "The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time. Dettmer is originally from Chicago, where he studied at Columbia College. Update: Read our exclusive interview with the Book Surgeon here. Brian Dettmer's website

Devils' Workshop - Tech Community Blog Top 10 Fixes for the Web's Most Annoying Problems @timgray: Not if you're in marketing. The world needs more people like you :) I spend a lot of time trying to explain the benefits of a simple design: - easier site maintenance - focuses more on goal of site, rather than "ooo, shiny..." - faster loading time - more browser support - no worry of flash or JS blockers interfering with functionality Usually, it's not the fault of individual web designers, it's the entire industry business model. An agency that sells the client the simplest (and usually best) site is only moderately successful. An agency that sells the client the crazy bells-and-whistles flash/ajax broadband-only monstrosity with full social media integration for two hundred grand can afford to employ more expert buzzwording bullshitting marketeers and grow like crazy. Designers like simplicity, ease of use, elegance.

200 Free Outstanding Online Classes Take classes online from Yale, MIT, Tufts and other respected institutions for free. UPDATE: Some of the schools have moved the pages for some of the courses, and the OEDb hasn't updated them on their site yet. I checked every link listed. Some have moved and provide a link to the new page. Some have error messages. Some of the links (all at Utah State University) wanted a name and a password. The Online Education Database has put together 200 online classes from these and other institutions. Topics cover a very wide range - everything from Natural Science to Law and Politics. The Visual Arts seem to be missing. The Beginning Online Learning page has some wonderful articles and resources. The site is geared towards helping people find financial aid for college and is a bit on the commercial side in places. 200 Free, Quality Online Classes University Open Course Home Pages: Signing off, Rhiannon Click here for more items like this.
