» The coming RIA wars: A roundup of the Web’s new face | Enterpr A host of powerful new methods for rapidly creating compelling browser-based software (aka Rich Internet Applications) have recently come to market, or are rapidly heading there. While the technique getting the most press by far these days is still Ajax, there are a number of new approaches that are intent on dislocating this often finicky and hard to work with -- though very powerful -- browser software model. The goal? To help us more easily develop the next generation of Web applications that are every bit as good as or better than desktop PC applications. The motivation for all this is simple; most of the world of software is moving to the browser and SaaS -- and therefore the Web and your local Intranet -- despite the browser lacking an innate capability for hosting sophisticated applications. But Ajax looks like it will face blistering competition from Flex, OpenLaszlo, WPF/E, XBAP, XUL, Java Browser Edition, and others The Roundup Wrap-Up
55 Inspiring Examples of Gradients in Web Design Gradients are a great way to add interest, color, and even depth to a web design. You can use the same color in many shades, many shades of many colors or several other combinations you may think of. You can go linear or radial. The point is that gradients are beautiful and can give your website a very unique style. You can use a cool gradient for the whole website design, or only in the header, footer or just in a couple elements of it, but I’m pretty sure about one thing: combining the right colors and shades will make you a gradient lover! You will start using gradients all over, maybe even at your dinning room wall.

BBH Painting with Watercolours using openFrameworks FBO - Kenichi Yoneda (@kyndinfo) We have already covered the work of designer/design engineer Kenichi Yoneda aka Kynd, exploring physical painting effects using openFrameworks. At the recent openFrameworks Developer Conference held held at YCAM as a part of the Yagamuchi Mini Market Faire, Kenichi introducing various projects developing algorithms he has been working on including drawing by the bleeding of watercolor as an act of digital painting. I’ve been recalling sometimes that I was asked if it was possible to do my own watercolors in a video in the e-mail interview with Guernica Magazine. Since then I’ve been kind of haunted with the idea of mimicking my watercolors with codes but made no real attempt for a while. Kenichi has already explored pencil-like drawings of photographs and early attempts at watercolor-like textures but these latest experiments have a life of their own. FBOs are also used to create views of other scenes, like a TV in a house. For more of Kynd’s work, see his Vimeo/Flickr feed or his blog.
Mario Klingemann's Flash Blog: Flash Font Encoding Flash Font Encoding I recently enjoyed the pleasures and pains of making a multilingual Flash site work. Not really unknown territory for me - I've been through this before, but that was in good old Flash 5 times. Back then it was an almost hopless venture to have a site not only in english or german, but also in greek, russian, polish, czech or hebrew. So I knew it would be a rough road. But that's the past - now we are living in MX times where only the sky's the limit isn't it? But little did I know about the perils and hardships that lay before me. Read the small print. Make this test: Take Arial Unicode MS which contains almost every available Unicode char and therefore has a size of ~23MB and embed it into an swf. Don't trust the small print. Okay - so I cannot do all languages in one file, but at least I can simply exchange the fonts and make one basic file for each language. Back to the roots. So what happens here? After you have added your fonts in this way you will have to reboot.

haXe.org The Design Cubicle Firing at Man in Times Square, Police Wound Two Bystanders It began as just another bizarre scene in the Times Square area, a disoriented man lurching amid traffic, seemingly throwing himself into the path of oncoming cars. The police arrived and the crowd grew. The hulking man continued on, ignoring the officers’ commands while eluding capture. Then the man reached into his pants pocket, withdrawing his hand as if it were a gun, the police said, and pretended to shoot at some of the officers. Two officers opened fire, discharging a total of three bullets. The shooting on Saturday night immediately raised questions about the police’s use of deadly force, especially in a crowded area where bystanders were in the line of fire. Department guidelines say officers may not fire their weapons unless they believe they or other people are in imminent danger of death or serious injury, or if doing so will “unnecessarily endanger innocent persons.” The man, identified as Glenn Broadnax, 35, of Brooklyn, did not have a gun, the police said.
