  • startuptools / FrontPage – # Start-ups are always short on time. Here are some tools (products/frameworks/etc) that might avoid you reinventing the wheel and save you some valuable time.<br />
    # We (Songkick) have found that the most useful tools are introduced to us by other start-ups. This wiki is an attempt to collect some of that knowledge and experience in one place so that companies getting started on new problems have a useful reference.<br />
    # This list is focused on technical tools to save development time. For business focused resources, Seedcamp have created a useful wiki here.<br />
    # With each tool, we've added a list of start-ups known to be using that tool, so there's a sense of how well tested they are by the community. If no start-up can vouch for the tool it doesn't make it onto the list.<br />
    # This list is maintained by Ian at Songkick but will be a lot better for your additions!

  • How The U.S. Government Killed The Safest Car Ever Built – Thirty-five years ago, the U.S. government built a fleet of cars that were safer than anything on the road. Twenty-five years ago, the government shredded them in secret. Two escaped the crusher. This is their story.<br />
    <br />
    As Congress and the auto industry wrestle with another round of tougher safety standards, nothing on the menu comes close to setting up the federal government's own vehicle design business. Yet that's exactly what Congress did in 1966.

  • 2-liter bottle upside down tomato planter The Cheap Vegetable Gardener – Though my first attempt at an upside down tomato planter worked out great, I have a habit of forgetting to water the plants everyday. More commonly when we have decent rains when only the hanging tomato planters need to be watered. So this year I have modified my design a little to make this a little easier. As a bonus you can create this new version much quicker and minimal tools.
  • Internet Explorer 9: Platform Demos – Test out IE 9 at their Test Drive page. Dare we dream that IE9 may not suck?
  • CSS Starbursts with CSS3 transforms and transitions – I was recently experimenting with the new CSS3 rotation property and it occurred to me that I could use this to create image-free starbursts. All I needed was a series of nested block-level elements each rotated by a slightly different amount. The rotation would distribute the box corners around the circumference of the star.

  • Stories Matter » Announcing Stories Matter v.1.5.1 – Announcing the Launch of the Stories Matter (On/Online) Database Tool: A New Media Alternative to Oral History Transcription<br />
    <br />
    Michael Frisch has recently written that the “deep dark secret” of oral history, is that we don’t really know what to do with the orality of the source. In transcribing our interviews, we lose the orality almost immediately thus shoring the narratives of much of their meaning. This new media application now offers oral historians an alternative to transcription (available at http://storytelling.concordia.ca/storiesmatter).
