Spread Firefox — Download Day 2008

spreadfirefox.com/worldrecord/

Sounds like a good deal, right? All you have to do is get Fire­fox 3 dur­ing Down­load Day to help set the record for most soft­ware down­loads in 24 hours — it’s that easy. We’re not ask­ing you to swal­low a sword or to bal­ance 30 spoons on your face, although that would be kind of awe­some.

By the way, the offi­cial date for the launch of Fire­fox 3 will be post­ed here soon — so check back! Join our com­mu­ni­ty and this effort by pledg­ing today.

Threadless Now Doing Print

You can now get your favorite shirt designs on print from Thread­less. They are start­ing w/ a lim­it­ed run of 250 per design; cost­ing at about $35 at the moment (size 18“x24”). I just emailed them won­der­ing if they’ll be hook­ing that up w/ a fram­ing ser­vice as well—I think they are per­son­al­ly if the cost ain’t too much. It just makes sense.

Update
It seems Thread­less has moved their “Print” sec­tion over to the reigns of Society6, and blik.

Cisco’s John Chambers — “Simple, Open Architecture, and Safe”

At the Interop con­fer­ence in Las Vegas, Cis­co CEO John Cham­bers talks about the need for busi­ness­es to increase pro­duc­tiv­i­ty by imple­ment­ing Web 2.0 tools such as wikis, mashups, and vir­tu­al con­fer­enc­ing. He also explains how Cis­co used Web 2.0 prin­ci­ples in its $7 bil­lion acqui­si­tion of Sci­en­tif­ic Atlanta.

@Media 2007 — Time to Learn More!

@media 2007 - San Francisco

I was for­tu­nate enough to be spon­sored by M.com/Monster World­wide to attend @media 2007 up here in SF.

@media: For for­ward-think­ing web design and devel­op­ment pro­fes­sion­als, @media, one of the world’s fore­most and well received web design con­fer­ences, comes to the West Coast for the first time this May 24th and 25th.

The unique pre­sen­ta­tions from lead­ing indus­try experts will inspire and edu­cate, cov­er­ing a mul­ti­tude of aspects of best prac­tice web design, dis­cussing top­ics such as user-inter­face design, acces­si­bil­i­ty, seman­tic markup, CSS, JavaScript, and ajax.

Woohoo! I can’t wait to get my badge! haha =)
