Quick note about shipping

It’s 10pm and I’m tired. That is, it’s 10pm in New Zealand, where I am after a completely epic trip. On Thursday, we flew to London, then Hong Kong, then Auckland. Even though both the London -> Hong Kong and Hong Kong -> Auckland flights were about an hour shorter than normal, that’s a total […]

JavaScript Performance Rocks! is live!

Our beta ebook is now live & for sale! Check it out. And soon, back to our regularly scheduled programming. I didn’t manage the Question of the Day today because the ebook-related stuff took up more than twice as long as I expected. D’oh. So much for a good habit. But I’ll make it up […]

Your Questions: Best way to structure forms in HTML?

Time for question number two! This time, it’s a short one… about HTML. Brian Liles asked today’s question: What do you think about form design? Are you a div with p? Are you an ol with li?How about tables?Or something even more funky? None of the above, actually, Brian! I used to be a proponent […]

Your Questions: Client-side JavaScript Frameworks?

Thanks for coming through with more questions, guys! I’ve got enough for this week and maybe another week after that. You rock. This first question I picked because it’s related to JavaScript, and, well, I’m in a JavaScript mood (and in the mood to pimp our ebook!). Nicolas Papon, a French developer, wrote in: I […]

Help – I need more questions

I can’t write up one question & answer a day this coming week, because I only received 2 questions. So – your product design / marketing / interaction design marketing questions. I needs them! I know that sometimes coming up with a question out of the blue is hard and weird because you don’t know […]

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a special offer!

Hey guys. So amidst all this talk about splitting up my blog, etc., etc., etc… there’s something I forgot to mention. And it looks something like this: I can hear your shocked Inner Voice now: That’s a… that’s an ebook cover! Right in one! JavaScript Performance Expertise Coming Your Way Thomas and I have periodically […]

My blog’s splitting up: It’s not you, it’s me. No, really. It’s me. And me. And me…

Ladies and gentlemen, my blog is going through a split. Not a divorce. But a split. My topics just… need some space, you know? The Case Slash7, as it stands currently, is an undifferentiated mishmash of stuff. You can’t come to my site and see what it is that I do. Or rather, you see […]

You ask, I answer: Round 1

I’m trying something new here at Slash7. To put it simply: I’m taking your questions! Next week, I will answer one marketing (pimpin’) / product design / interaction design / graphic design question a day, right here on slash7. You should ask me about your site colors, or a tough usability problem you’re having, how […]

If you ask me, we can all use more meat metaphors

Found Kelly’s blog from her comment on the previous article. To wit: Strategy and focus provide juicy steak in times of economic gristle. Trying to please everyone is wasteful, like giving heavy whipping cream to a dog. The dog gets a stomachache, you regret it later. Of course, if you read between the lines, you […]
