"10 rules for web startups" from the co-founder of Blogger


I like reading this sort of content. It gives me hopes for the future of web applications. I strongly suspect that what he says is correct, however I feel the need to prove it to myself.

Another quote I read somewhere. "Set yourself a 10 day deadline and publish no matter how little functionality is complete".

How to make the ultimate paper airplane

I have to try this too at some point.

Free book from Dilbers Author

This has been available for ages, but I only just noticed it. http://www.andrewsmcmeel.com/godsdebris/

Free from the guy that writes dilbert.. it claims to be a thought experiment.

I have been accused several times of not fully qualifying as a geek. This is mainly due to having inadvertantly failed to read several Neal Stephenson books. I am currently attempting to make amends for this oversite by reading "The Dimand Age". So far.. I am loving it. It's all Nano-tech and programmery. Definately my sort of thing.

"Snow Crash" is actually the next on my list.

Any recommendations for must read geek books?

Round corners on divs using css and javascript

I saw this recently so I thought I would pass it on.

MockiKit - A suite of lightweight javascript libraries.
I love the 'rounded corners' feature. (see http://www.mochikit.com/examples/rounded_corners/index.html)

The round corners code is based on the Rico library ( see http://openrico.org/rico/home.page )

.. which in turn based its implementation on "Nifty Corners: rounded corners without images " see http://pro.html.it/esempio/nifty/
