I recently got back from the Das Boot cruise, which went from Stockholm to Tallinn, Estonia. The main event onboard was of course the live gigs by Infected Mushroom, VNV Nation, Spetsnaz, Project Rotten, Autodafeh, Aesthetic Perfection, Spark, SPOCK, Kopfer Kat and more bands.
Entries of year 2011
IE10 was previewed yesterday at the MIX conference in Las Vegas. They have added lots of CSS3 support, but it makes me wonder why they didn’t put in the recently released IE9? And who will ever use IE9 when this one is approaching at the horizon?
Do you remember a decade-old site called 4 Guys From Rolla? I used to visit it a lot in the early days of my ASP.NET career. Around 2002, it was still fairly common to visit a site and look for information, instead of just searching for it.
Khronos released version 1.0 of the WebGL specification a few days ago at Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
IE6 is more stubborn than Rocky Balboa, it just won’t go down and die peacefully even though the entire planet is cheering for the other guy. But a few days ago an unexpected opponent turned up: its own creator Microsoft.
This is the classic eye-witness account by Jon Krakauer of the tragedy that unfolded on the slopes of Mount Everest in 1996. I read it about ten years ago and recently got inspired by an adventuring friend to re-read it.
Pam Mendel recently photographed her packing for Antarctica, perhaps inspired by the recent image of Frank Chimero’s daytime packing? It made me remember an article I read a while back, I wanna be a flashpacker by Amanda Kendle where she writes about how she changed from backpacker to flashpacker.
Two months ago I wrote about Google Places versus Facebook Places. Facebook Places has been gradually activated around the world and today the beast came to Sweden. So say goodbye to your dear Gowalla and Foursquare apps, because this will be one of the most used applications of 2011, whether you like it or not.
