Incubus - Alive At Red Rocks - This is so awesome, I don't know how to describe it. thx @jasongallic

I've been a fan of Incubus since 2000. An intern rocked my work by sharing the band with me and it changed my musical interests for good.

Microjs: Fantastic Micro-Frameworks and Micro-Libraries for Fun and Profit!

Fantastic Micro-Frameworks and
Micro-Libraries for Fun and Profit!

How much library code do you really need — 50K? 100K? 150K? More? How much of that do you really use?

Sure, we all love our favorite monolithic frameworks, and sometimes we even use them fully. But how often do we reach for the ride-on John Deere tractor with air conditioning and six-speaker sound system, when a judiciously applied pocketknife would do the trick better, faster, slicker?

Micro-frameworks are definitely the pocketknives of the JavaScript library world: short, sweet, to the point. And at 5k and under, micro-frameworks are very very portable. A micro-framework does one thing and one thing only — and does it well. No cruft, no featuritis, no feature creep, no excess anywhere.

Microjs.com helps you discover the most compact-but-powerful microframeworks, and makes it easy for you to pick one that’ll work for you.

Want to add your own? Fork this site on GitHub, add your framework to data.js and submit a pull request.

Noah Stokes | Es Bueno - Two views at the same time in photoshop!

A great little trick to work on one comp in two views, one zoomed in, one not. Learned it from this blog post here: http://www.teehanlax.com/blog/2011/03/04/how-to-design-pixel-perfect-photoshop-files-for-ios-apps/
