  1. A New Look for the Blog  • 
    You may notice that something looks a different on this website today. It’s a new theme for the blog that I’ve been tinkering with for the past couple months. So after much fiddling around in Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and WordPress, I’m ready to debut it to the world (though I might decide to revert back to […]
  2. coComment Does Web 2.0 Right  • 
    Despite last week's rant about too much web 2.0 hype, I've made one discovery recently that's made my life a lot easier. It's called coComment. coComment keeps track of all the comments you make on blogs throughout the web so you don't have to go Googling for them yourself.

Hyperlinking the words “click here.” People generally don’t read websites in the way they read a book or a magazine; they skim. And when you hyperlink contentless words like click […]
  7. The Web Is Imperfect  • 
    The Web is making slow progress in separating content from presentation.
  8. The Importance of Web Conventions  • 
    I’m looking forward to seeing the galleys for my novel sometime in the next few months. Pyr has decided to implement a lot of special features in the book design. Page numbers won’t be in the top or bottom margin as you might expect, but right in the middle of the text. And since readers […]
