The first sharp version of IE8 will be released today at Microsoft’s MIX09 conference in Las Vegas. The last months has seen a harsh public humiliation against the so called browser IE6 where large sites actually warned users that they were using deprecated software. Campaigns were started and it felt like a crusade.
Entries of year 2009
After the cool zombie walk a few months ago it was time to hit the city once more with something wierd. I wrote a year ago about the “freeze” action in large cities. The Grand Central Station freeze is still the best one in my opinion, but there are other cool versions as well. Today I participated in the event where 500 people froze in the center of Nordstan, Gothenburg.
There has been a lot of buzz lately regarding validation and accessibility. The W3C validator is a classic tool for validating your site, but some accessibility issues are harder to detect. NetRelations has now released the Inspector for public use.
The EPiServer Awards nominees got in today. 22 sites were selected from the 118 contributions and I’m proud to see NetRelations featured in the list with the cool intranet we built for Swedish fashion chain MQ.
A few years ago, a site called Lunarstorm was the largest social network in Sweden. During the previous week, Lunarstorm had over 244 000 unique visitors. This may feel like a large number.
You’ve all heard about this thing called web standards and accessibility by now, but what about user experience? It’s 2009 and we want to use the web for information consumption in an efficient way.
There is a new guy in the White House and he’s got a brand new website as well. The official whitehouse.gov had a major overhaul and the result is quite nice. They use ASP.NET 2.0 but the markup almost validates.
45 years ago, a man named Martin Luther King stood in front of the Lincoln memorial and spoke to 250 000 people. He said “I have a dream” and today a part of this dream come true as the first non-white president swears the oath on the opposite site of the National Mall with the Lincoln memorial in sight.
If you happen to be in Stockholm on January 22, why not visit the mini-conference Webb.09. It is arranged by Antrop and NetRelations at Hotel Rival. The topics include search engine optimization, internet markering and mobile services.
