Rediscovering the Button Element

Creating a consistent interface for your users is a constant struggle for every interface designer. Building consistency on the web is especially tough because the visual rendering differences across browsers and operating systems is wildly different and almost arbitrary in what can and cannot be done. No where does this become more apparent than when you’re dealing with form elements and the biggest loser of them all in the battle for a standardized look is the infamous Submit button.

Well, the new W3C HTML Working Group is slowly getting into gear. It seems as if W3C has learned from past mistakes, since right now the openness surrounding the new WG is commendable. There’s a blog for sharing information, anyone can join the mailing list as an Invited Expert, and even if you don’t you can still read the list. Good!

Geekiest Tattoo Ever

The tricky thing about tattoos is that they are for life. Permanent. Forever inked into your body. People always talk about getting a silly tattoo, but usually that’s all just talk. Then once in awhile you hear about someone getting a really bad tattoo. My favorite bad tattoo example is either an 8-ball or a donkey on a surfboard smoking a joint. But now I guess I need to add room to that list.

Em 2004, depois de um workshop do W3C, Apple, Mozilla e Opera estavam se tornando cada vez mais preocupadas a respeito da direção do XHTML no W3C, perda de interesse no HTML e aparente indiferença para com as necessidades dos autores do mundo real. Então, em resposta, essas organizações ajustaram-se com a missão de enfrentar essas preocupações e o Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group nasceu.

Animated Scroll em JavaScript

Semanas atrás eu achei um artigo interessante no Branding Spanking News chamado Animated anchor links with unobstrusive javascript que cria um feito de “scrolling animado” nas âncoras. O JavaScript é sim não obstrusiuvo mas eu não achei elegante a chamada de função no body do HTML da página de exemplo do post do autor do script. Por isso eu alterei o arquivo original e coloquei essa chamada dentro do próprio JavaScript e se quiser utilizar minha versão alterada (a mesma que eu uso aqui no site) sinta-se à vontade. Se preferir utilize a versão original do autor. Só peço o favor de copiar o script para seu próprio servidor ok?

Web 2.0 Principles and Best Practices

Ever since I wrote What is Web 2.0? on the eve of last year’s Web 2.0 Conference, people have been asking for more. I’ve given dozens of talks around the world for companies increasingly far from the tech world. (In fact, I’m writing this entry from Necker Island in the Caribbean, where I’m meeting with the general managers of all the Virgin Group companies.) All of them what to understand not just what Web 2.0 is, but how to apply its principles to their business.
