Let it Snow

New Christmassy Easter Egg from Google. Type in Let it snow in google and watch little snow flakes fall down the screen. Eventually the whole screen gets covered in snow but don't worry, there is a quick defrost button where the search should be or just draw a pretty pattern with your mouse.

Crazy Wall Art

This is fantastic wall art by Dan Witz. Funny and a bit scary I love it!

Also comes as a goat and the tasmanian devil.

No more time

For some reason, the powers that be, have decided to make the HTML5 <time> element tag obsolete. Instead now we should use <data>. I really don't understand the reasoning behind this and also from other blogs nobody seems to think this is a good idea.
Hopefully, after all the backlash the time element will get reinstated by Ian Hickson

What's your number

The world population is expected to reach 7 billion in the next few weeks and the BBC have developed this tool to find out where you fit into that. By filling out your date of birth you can see what number you were when born from people alive and from all time

7 billion people and you: What's your number?

Thanks, Steve

After the sad news of Steve Jobs passing on the 5 October I found this very touching design named just "Thanks, Steve".

The logo was created as a tribute by Jonathan Mak Long, a 19-year-old designer living in Hong Kong where it incorporates Jobs' silhouette into the bite of the Apple logo.

Draw a Stickman

A really simple and very cute site that interacts with you. As you draw your little stickman he finds challenges for you to help him along. Very creative and even better it is not done in flash but JS!

Very nice 3D carousel

The Slicebox carousel is really very lovely when viewed in chrome or safari, having lovely 3d effects and importantly working like a normal carousel when in other browsers.

Back in the day we had css zen garden which demonstrated what could be done with css and the same html.

There is now CSS1k, which is getting people to demonstrate what is possible with just 1K of CSS. Some entries are showing great uses of CSS3 and some are really quite cool, such as #bbubles and #facetime.

Very funny Ad

Love this advert, maybe something to try out in the office

image to css

img to css
Here is a site that I have just found that converts an image to html and css. It is an interesting concept but not one I think I would necessarily use as there is so much extra code and really I don't think using images in sites in the right place is a problem. However I am impressed with how it works

below is an example of the FF logo in code
