There There — Beyond Flash Introduction It is not often that I am invited to a Flash conference, and I seem to operate more on the periphery of the “Flash community” than from within it, so what I am about to say might be difficult for some to hear, but it has been on my mind for some time, and I feel it needs to be said.

Check out these illustrations of Simpsons locales as seen at night If you recently sat through FXX’s society-destroying Simpsons marathon and have found it difficult to close your eyes without seeing yellow-skinned cartoon figures dance across your field of vision, this may provide a way to keep your buzz going. Artist Tim Doyle has produced a series of evocative, moody illustrations featuring locations from around The Simpsons’ Springfield as seen at night. Doyle, who seems to specialize in producing artwork on nerdy topics, also illustrated locations from shows like Futurama, Arrested Development, and Seinfeld, all of which are worth a look. These illustrations originally appeared as a part of Doyle’s UnReal Estate series, which first went on display in San Francisco back in 2012. For whatever reason, the Simpsons stuff has been kicking around different blogs over the past couple of days, experiencing a renewed life that the Internet, in her caprice, tends to grant from time to time.

We can decide intelligently when to keep the user on the page and model his process.

It consists of a community of storytellers, sharing heartfelt personal stories, focused on a slower kind of self-expression than the frantic world of tweets and social networks. We use these tools (they are part of our consciousness now) but we also feel a craving for a deeper kind of connection, so Cowbird offers a safe and sacred space for this kind of behavior to occur. Stories allow us to untangle experience, make sense of our lives, and find meaning. They are containers for wisdom and lifeboats for memory — helping us not to forget, and then later, not to be forgotten.

Victorian Lithographs (Part I) Another book I picked up and scanned some pages from with design plates made by industrial designer Christopher Dresser (1834-1904). His work derives from a broad range of influences including Gothic, Chinese, Islamic, and his botany background in creating Victorian ornamentation originally intended for ceilings and walls of Victorian homes. How To Build A CSS3 Sliding Menu It’s often best to put things away until you need them. Navigation menus are a good example.
