Helvetica divanoEyeOS – the browser-based Operative System: an evolution of the personal homepage like Google Homepage, Netvibes, Protopage, Favoor, SuprGlu, MS Live, and the italian Mooglets.

– Years and years and years ago, the man disegned the wheel. Today, a wheel show the design of a man: Self_Titled.

– Do you love pixel? I too.

Writing hacks, part one. “Yes, alcohol is writing’s seductive little mistress. A well timed shot of whiskey can work wonders for the jittery, neurotic mind.” The best friend inside me (that I call Leever) thinks the same thing.

– Have you already tried IE fuc…ehm, IE 7 on your computer? Ok, the standalone version is here.

-You open the door of your office and say to your co-workers: “There…there was a ghostly car in front of my eyes!!” A Guerrilla Adventising driver was at the handwheel, probably. Or you hacked last night (see above).

– A simple show/hide tip to control of the throbber in a Prototype Carousel.

“I wanna destrooooy!!!”

– Well, say it (or better, says it). “I’d like a cassette with my name over.” Here is it.

-50 B, U, T, ful E-ars: the font that ha invaded our streets, claims a lot of attempt of imitation, remains different, don’t fear to comparison has now a brand new blog and coming soon movie.

The Horizontal Way

Particolar of my new site The Horizontal WayTo introduce the topic of this very short post I’ll cite-myself three times:

[…]But I ask myself again: why so few people used or use now horizontal templates?[…] (23 january)

[…]Without losing my mind I taked advantage of the free time for: 1) to begin a new project based on an old idea;[…] (21 march)

[…]Next time we will explore the small world of the horizontal layouts more in the details, […] (31 march)

No, Python and IPv6 aren’t in topic. Either the “Digg effect” applied to love relations, I’m sorry.
With some months of delay, it’s time to ask your opinions about:

The X from JSON – second part

jlogo.jpgThis is the second part of a series of three posts dedicated to
JSON, a javascript for the description and the transport of data.
In the first part we saw the comparison between its sintax and the one of XML, the ‘chairman’ in the same category; today we’ll speak about some differents between the two formats stopping in particular

The X from JSON – first part

jlogo.jpgSometimes happens in this way.
After only two years, even that which seems to be a great love begin to shows its cracks.
As that wasn’t anything, the friends don’t stay on your side: “But are you sure about what you’re doing? Don’t you think that you chose that wrong way, this time too?” “That’s wrong, I believe in this relation, nobody will divide us!”
That ‘nobody’ unfortunately is here now, and has a name: JSON, a new format based on javascript that in these days begin to fight his way in the world of the description and the exchange of the data, introducing itself as an alternative to the old, dear XML.
Before to advance to XML a reflection break that will mean the certain end, I’d like to explore better my heart to find – if not an aswer – at least a suggestion about to with safety some important decisions for our future, whose I don’t stop to believe.

Logo Trends 2006

Logo di Brainfloss, MINEWithout a particular reason, some days ago I was giving a look to the already suggested “Logo Trends? of 2005, in other words some common solution to the different identity crisis.
Discerning the pubblication month (april), I asked myself if something similar would be published this year too, and I found two minutes later the (for me) brand-new Logolounge.com – The 2006 Report By Bill Gardner.
To find a cure to the unusual, serious absence of a chart, here’s my personal liking lists: first three were been awarded with a prestigious – let alone enviable – bold char. |inline
