“Can you dig it?”
A couple of sites that I’ve found both really useful and interesting, and that help keep me up-to-date with the latest goings on in the world of both general technology and specifically CSS, are Digg and SkimCSS.
They both work in a similar way: people submit short articles to the sites, along with a link to another story or resource that they’ve found useful or interesting, and visitors to the site vote on how much they like that submission. With SkimCSS you give it a vote out of 5; with Digg if you dig the story (man!) then you “digg it”! The more votes a submission has the higher it scores and you get an idea of how popular it is, and therefore (hopefully) how useful you may find it.
- Check out this homemade Web server — spotted on Digg.com. Doesn’t exactly look safe.
- A post that warms the cockles of my heart, if indeed my heart has cockles: Original Firefox team member takes on new IE7 beta. Surprise, surprise IE7 still falls short of the firey, foxy one! (Spotted on Digg.com.)
- Robust CSS Drop Shadows — spotted on SkimCSS.
I’ve subscribed to the RSS feeds from both Digg and SkimCSS, and also added them to my
@ Daily bookmarks folder for quick reference from within Firefox.
