How to Use the jQuery UI Autocomplete Widget In this tutorial we'll be looking at one of jQuery UI 1.8's newest components - the Autocomplete widget. Auto-completing text fields can be a popular choice with visitors to your site because they make entering information much easier. They can be used on product search fields for example, or when a visitor must enter a country, or a city, or anything else that may be a choice from a common dataset. As well as being popular with visitors, the jQuery UI Autocomplete is popular with developers because it's easy to use, powerful and flexible. I'm not a massive fan of Facebook, I much prefer Twitter (@danwellman btw), but one Facebook feature I do like is the messaging feature which lets you send a message to a friend or friends. In this tutorial we'll use the jQuery UI Autocomplete widget to replicate this aspect of Facebook's messaging system. Step 1 Getting Started CoreWidgetPosition Once downloaded, create a new folder on your computer and call it autocomplete. Step 2 The Underlying HTML

Organic Compost Tumbler. World's Best Composter. New report reveals that readers want news given to them, not tailored. - TNW Media I’ve written before about how new media isn’t destroying journalism. There will always be a need for qualified fact-checkers and reliable news sources – social networking platforms such as Twitter are just tools, and journalists have to move with the times and use all the tools at their disposal. A key theme within this area is how news sites are letting the end-user choose what news they receive. Some have argued that tailored news dissemination will lead many people to miss out on key global events, which is why journalists and publications should decide what news people consume. I don’t necessarily agree entirely with this assertion, but a new paper by Neil Thurman, a journalism academic based at City University in London, reaffirms the notion that people want to have professionals filtering and packaging news for them. Thurman asserts that “readers are reluctant to take on the role of editorial selection, and still enjoy serendipitous discovery.” Ultimately, it’s all about choice.

I love my little Leyats! – The Garden Professors™ I’m usually not much for product promotion or endorsement, but so few people seem to know about these spiffy little Swiss-made nippers, seems deserving of a post. Leyat Sàrl is a long-time manufacturer of sécateurs (I love that word – sounds way more dramatic/awesome than “pruners.” Hee!). Leyat pruners come in all sizes and are pretty popular in orchard and vineyard circles, but I can’t say I’ve seen them at many retailers. This is why they’re awesome: They fit into your pocket and do not fall out. I do plant walks for i.d. classes and garden tours all the darn time. The stainless steel blade takes well to sharpening, and the bright color helps me keep track of them. Related Last minute items for gardeners I am a last minute shopper.

3 Reasons Curation is Here to Stay Perhaps you won't believe me since it's my job to spread the gospel of curation as the Chief Evangelist of Pearltrees, but I think curation is here to stay. These are the reasons why I believe this is the case. This year there has been a tremendous amount of buzz in Silicon Valley about curation. Oliver Starr is the Chief Evangelist for Pearltrees. With all the attention curation has suddenly received, people are probably wondering if this is just another fad or is it something bigger? First, curation is one of the underlying principles of the Web. Allow anyone to access any type of documentAllow everyone to disseminate his or her own documentsAllow everyone to organize the entire collection of documents Over the past 20 years what we've seen is the democratization of the first two principles above. Secondly, we have very strong evidence that curation has begun a similar process towards democratization, and that what we are seeing now is an adoption curve similar to blogging.
