  • Your website should encourage people to act @ gerrymcgovern.com

    The purpose of a website is to encourage action. A successful ecommerce website gets people to spend money. A successful intranet helps people do their work more productively. Your website should have as many calls to action as possible. The more a person acts on your website, the more likely your website is to succeed.

  • Foreseeing the future: The legacy of Vannevar Bush @ boxesandarrows.com

    In 1945 a seminal article appeared in The Atlantic Monthly. Titled, “As We May Think,” the article’s author, Vannevar Bush (1890–1974), proposed a new mechanical machine to help scholars and decision makers make sense of the growing mountains of information being published in to the world. This article presaged the idea of the Internet and the World Wide Web and was directly influential on the fathers of the hypertext and the Internet as we know it today.

  • The DrawBack browser project by Jorn Barger @ robotwisdom.com

    An idea from Jorn Barger for a bare-bones web browser that give back a lot of control to the user, rather than the page designer.

    The way I hope it will evolve is towards smart local stylesheets (maintained on your local drive) that allow you great flexibility in re-formatting others' page- designs, while automatically learning how to generalise those formatting choices to other pages on the same site.

    These may use simple pattern-recognition (eg regular expressions) to distinguish the useful parts of a page from the annoying parts, hopefully even if the page is considerably revised.
