Snipshot – Edit pictures online

Monday, March 19th, 2007

Cool web app allowing you some simple edit capabilities for your photos. http://snipshot.com/ And what would a web2.0 app be without an api, integration with flickr and a firefox extension. Not sure I will use it, but still pretty cool. UPDATE: Mashable has posted an index of 90+ Online Photography Tools and Resources. Wow, there [...]

Inconsistent Interpretation with Web Development Best Practices

Wednesday, February 14th, 2007

Over the years, I’ve come across many web developers that have inconsistent interpretation of what best practices are. In most cases it’s a lack of knowledge at no fault on the individual. I don’t want to risk sounding elitist, but I’m generally current on new methods, formats, tools, and “standards“. I’m one of those guys [...]

Thursday, February 8th, 2007

Cool http://pipes.yahoo.com/ Whoops, it’s down right now and they have called the plumbers. Our Pipes are Clogged! I’ll leave you to explore, but this looks very very cool. I have a feeling some people I know won’t be so happy about this though.
