Pretty nice timeline of web technologies. Crazy how far we’ve come in so little time & scary how fast the pace of change is.

I love this idea. An online store, Kogan, is charging its IE7 customers 6.8% more on transactions to cover the cost of ensuring the site works on that browser.

We are considering implementing something similar here at Today ;-)

Morisawa, a japanese developer of digital fonts, created Fontpark, an awesome Flash application to help market their products. Fontpark is basically a drawing tool, where you use japanese or latin glyphs to create patterns and illustration like images. The glyphs can be dragged around, scaled, rotated and duplicated. The whole process is recorded and can be watched afterwards. There is a gallery with sorting functionality and a rating tool. All user works can be browsed, there is an embedded player widget as well, that shows a random piece. Below you can see an example of the recorded process.

Yesterday a friend of mine sent me a link, which i thought would carry me to just that ordinary, maybe a bit outstanding from a content perspective ( otherwise he would not have sent it), type of video on vimeo i was used to. But what I saw then, literally blew my mind. For me, the most amazing, most beautiful, most technical enhanced and most psychological effective online advertising piece I ever saw in my life. Great work, vimeo!

Sorry for not embedding the video here, but You have to watch it directly on the vimeo site to perceive it`s effects. Click the Screenshot!

We have just launched a new website for Martin Wonnacott, arguably one of the best drinks photographers in the world and a long-time friend of the studio. He is in such demand that he recently featured on three separate ad campaigns running concurrently in Times square NYC.

We developed a site packed with great functionality, an intuitive interface, delivered with an understated graphic style to compliment his sumptuous work. You can find deep linking, full screen mode, oversized thumbnails, a content management system and a build your own PDF function. So grab your self a drink and enjoy. [Visit Site]

Asual recently announced a new release of their SWFAddress.
SWFAddress is a JavaScript library empowering deep linking in Flash and AJAX applications by creating unique pseudo URL`s, based on a hash-separation of a URL token as it is used for navigating anchors in traditional HTML sites. It also supports bookmarking, Browser Back Button / History and controlling of Title and Status bars of the Browser.
In this latest version 2.2. amongst some great new features like official support for Internet Explorer 8, improved title handling, minor Fixes for Safari 2.0-2.0.3, the onload fix for xml content types ( esp. relevant in AJAX applications ) I am personally happy about the Fixation of the nasty blinking effects, that occur in Flash Sites with SWFAddress in Safari3 for MacOS. It seemed to relate to the usage of Flash`s ExternalInterface. Everytime a tween or scripted animation is running while SWFAddress gets triggered, this strange effect occurs. In Firefox3 on Windows I haven`t experienced that proplem so far. There has been a workaround by delaying the invocation of SWFAddress`s setVAlue() – method with every call. Good to see a unified fixation for that issue now. The developers of Asual claim to have released a pretty stable piece of software that certainly wont require major updates, adoptions in your daily work.
