How Browsers Work: Behind the scenes of modern web browsers - HTML5 Rocks Web browsers are the most widely used software. In this primer, I will explain how they work behind the scenes. We will see what happens when you type google.com in the address bar until you see the Google page on the browser screen. Working out the Left-right-left combination to a lock Conventionally, a combination lock is opened by turning the dial two turns to the right, then to the first number, one turn left, and left to the second number, and then right again to the last number. This series of turns causes the rotors of the locks to have their notches aligned with each other (see wooden combination lock model) However, there's nothing that prevents you from starting the combination counterclockwise instead of clockwise, and conventional combination locks can indeed be opened this way.

Living Light Sculpture Reveals Air Quality of Seoul Check out how a retro glass sculpture maps the city’s air quality ! In the center of Seoul ’s Peace Park , which is located across from the Korean World Cup Stadium, lies a very extraordinary sight: an outdoor glass canopy called the Living Light Sculpture. Created by Soo-in Yang and David Benjamin of The Living , and commissioned by the Korean Ministry of Environment, this amazing sculpture is more than just a fantastic piece of art. It actually projects up-to-date information about surrounding cities and their air quality.

Définition wikipédia An empirical analysis of the complex dynamics of tagging systems, published in 2007,[8] has shown that consensus around stable distributions and shared vocabularies does emerge, even in the absence of a central controlled vocabulary. For content to be searchable, it should be categorized and grouped. While this was believed to require commonly agreed on sets of content describing tags (much like keywords of a journal article), recent research has found that, in large folksonomies, common structures also emerge on the level of categorizations.[9] Accordingly, it is possible to devise mathematical models of collaborative tagging that allow for translating from personal tag vocabularies (personomies) to the vocabulary shared by most users.[10]

Kill Your Darlings There is nothing like the moment when you suddenly come upon the answer to a design problem. Whether it is a particular interaction or the perfect design element, it is a moment of pure elation. However, in that moment, there is a always a risk of an emotional attachment being formed. Essentially, we have the potential to surrender our ability to see beyond the “perfect solution” we have just created. Arthur Quiller-Couch, a British journalist, critic, and novelist once said,"Murder your darlings." While this quote was aimed at aspiring writers, I believe that it is equally relevant to designers.
