  • Do copywriters need a new name? | Copify | Content mills | ABC Copywriting blog – In this post, copywriter Martin Williams discusses the use of the word ‘copywriter’, and whether it is coming under pressure from content mills such as Copify. He argues, passionately, that authentic, carefully developed content is the only possible basis for an effective social media campaign, which in turn drives search too. So do we need a new word to describe what ‘real’ copywriters do, as opposed to content mills?<br />
    <br />
    This post presents my responses to Martin’s post (and will make more sense if you read his post first).
  • Principles Of Minimalist Web Design, With Examples – Smashing Magazine – Minimalism is achieved by reducing a design to only the most essential elements. Expressions of minimalism span multiple disciplines, as well as other art forms such as music and literature. For website designers, though, minimalism can be intimidating and difficult to master.<br />
    <br />
    But anyone can master minimalism. Essentially, minimalism is about breaking things down to the barest elements necessary for a design to function. It’s about taking things away until nothing else can be removed without interfering with the purpose of the design. Below are a number of principles of minimalist design, as well as an exploration of current trends and additional examples.

  • Ethan Hein | Music Teaching | The pentatonic box – This is a cornerstone of lead guitar playing because it falls easily under the fingers, sounds good in a wide variety of musical settings, and forms a nice memorable pattern on the fretboard. But many guitarists get trapped in the pentatonic box, not wanting to venture outside of it because they're rightly daunted by the baffling variety of scales and fingerings they see in books. Fortunately, by adding a couple of notes to the familiar box, you can increase your scale vocabulary enormously, without driving yourself crazy.
  • CSS3-Only Tabbed Area | CSS-Tricks – When you think of “tabs”, your mind might go right to JavaScript. Watch for a click on a tab, hide all the panels, show the one corresponding to tab just clicked on. All major JavaScript libraries tackle tabs in some way. But there is a way to accomplish this same idea with “pure CSS”. Just as we did with the CSS Image Switcher, let’s tackle this traditionally JavaScript project with only CSS.
