The State of the Web - Winter 2009 Created by Matthew Inman a 27 year old web designer from Seattle. About Me: In 2007 I designed and coded an online dating website, from concept to launch, in 66.5 hours. In a typical work week this would amount to about a week and a half. The end result was Mingle2, and within 6 months of launch the site exploded in popularity and was acquired by a bigger company. Since then, it has become one of the world's largest free online dating sites, having nearly one million users and garnering over 40 million page views a month. In addition to my full time job at Mingle2, I also create web comics, quizzes, and other viral microsites.

Inspiration Lab Emiliano Ponzi I do love seeing great conceptual ideas executed in an approachable manor. Like the amazing illustration below by Emiliano Ponzi dealing with Wikileaks. Mariana (Millais) Mariana is an 1851 oil-on-wood painting by John Everett Millais. The image is based on the solitary Mariana from William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, written between 1601 and 1606. In the play, Mariana was to be married, but was rejected when her dowry was lost in a shipwreck. The painting is regarded as an example of Millais' "precision, attention to detail, and stellar ability as a colorist".[1] She only said, 'My life is dreary, He cometh not,' she said; She said, 'I am aweary, aweary,' I would that I were dead!'
