Today’s M3talinks for May 5th

  • ZenCoding.vim – vim plugins for HTML and CSS hi-speed coding. : vim online – ZenCoding.vim : vim plugins for HTML and CSS hi-speed coding.
  • zen-coding – Project Hosting on Google Code – Zen Coding is an editor plugin for high-speed HTML, XML, XSL (or any other structured code format) coding and editing. The core of this plugin is a powerful abbreviation engine which allows you to expand expressions—similar to CSS selectors—into HTML code. For example:<br />
    <br />
    div#page>div.logo+ul#navigation>li*5>a<br />
    <br />
    …can be expanded into:<br />
    <br />
    <div id="page"><br />
    <div class="logo"></div><br />
    <ul id="navigation"><br />
    <li><a href=""></a></li><br />
    <li><a href=""></a></li><br />
    <li><a href=""></a></li><br />

  • Third Tribe Marketing – Mention the words "Internet marketing" to some, and images of obnoxious "gurus" spring to mind, complete with big red headlines, yellow highlighting, and excessive hype. And yet real Internet marketers (not get-rich-quick scam artists) are some of the smartest, wealthiest, and most ethical entrepreneurs you'll ever meet.<br />
    <br />
    Mention the words "social media marketing" to some, and images of touchy-feely idealists who promote community over commerce and conversation over cash come to mind. And yet some of the smartest people in the space successfully participate in social media for higher traffic, better search engine optimization, and larger profits.<br />
    <br />
    The black and white division of online marketing into two tribes is not real.<br />
    <br />
    These people learn from all sides and apply what they learn in a way that works for them. This tribe profits from the intersection of pragmatism and progress.<br />
    <br />
    This is the Third Tribe.

  • My Secret To Dominating Digg.com (years ago) – Shoemoney – Skills To Pay The Bills – Ok I have a story to share… one I been telling for a while for fun and always meant to post but just never gotten around to it.<br />
    <br />
    I used to be addicted to try to make the front page of digg… but I often had trouble hitting the front page. Sure it would happen every other month or so but it took a lot of work. Then in 2007 one month I made it 5 times… including 2 times in the SAME DAY on Feb 21st 2007:
  • 10 tips to improve your about page | David Airey, graphic designer – Almost as important as your website’s home page is the about page.

  • Coupon Codes and Lost Revenue » Checkout Optimization – In this post we’ll be looking at how coupon codes (used synonymously here with promo and discount codes) can cause retailers to lose revenue. I’ll share some (hopefully) interesting trends that I’m seeing with a client I work with, and hopefully start a discussion with how to turn lost revenue into gained revenue.<br />
    <br />
    Before getting to things, I am not claiming the following:<br />
    <br />
    * That coupon codes decrease revenue<br />
    * That retailers should remove coupon code support from checkout<br />
    * That retailers should stop using coupon codes<br />
    <br />
    In fact, the retailer that I reference below recently had their best week ever through offsite marketing channels thanks to a promotional effort that relied on coupon codes. Further, they actually saw their margin increase while discounting products.<br />
    <br />
    Now with that out of the way…

  • 140 Characters » How Twitter Was Born – Twitter was born about four years ago, when @Jack, @Biz, @Noah, @Crystal, @Jeremy, @Adam, @TonyStubblebine, @Ev, me (@Dom), @Rabble, @RayReadyRay, @Florian, @TimRoberts, and @Blaine worked at a podcasting company called Odeo, Inc. in South Park, San Francisco. The company had just contributed a major chunk of code to Rails 1.0 and had just shipped Odeo Studio, but we were facing tremendous competition from Apple and other heavyweights. Our board was not feeling optimistic, and we were forced to reinvent ourselves.

    ubuntu_poster.jpg

    I made this Ubuntu poster some time ago, and released the “sources” with a Gnu-GPL licence. But this licence is not really made for work like this, since it was concieved for software only. Now I’m re-releasing this with a more appropriate licence, a Creative Commons (share alike) licence 3.0.

    The zip file you can download here contains the parts I used to make the poster in png and svg formats, compatible with all the major free applications like the Gimp, Inkscape and Scribus. You can use them to make your own poster, create a localized version, make a wallpaper or sticker with it… whatever you want as long as you don’t do it for profit, and you share the result with the same CCPL licence (see the link to creative commonst below for more info). Please let me know if you do something with it… just curious!

Bookmarks for June 24th through June 25th

These are my links for June 24th through June 25th:

  • Print Stylesheets – css-discuss – This document describes some of the issues concerning the use of CSS to reformat Web documents for printing (using the media type "print"). We also discuss those aspects that CSS is not able to control or even influence. We assume a good knowledge of CSS and concentrate on practical issues, given the current deficiencies in browsers in implementing print-related CSS. For more basic tutorials and theory see "Other Sources" below. See also MediaStylesheets for practical media stylesheet strategies.

    Two of the most common problems with printing occur when positioning other than static is used (e.g. position: absolute) or when there are floats. See the section below "Suggested strategy for page breaks".

  • Languagegeek : Native Languages – Languagegeek is dedicated to the promotion of indigenous languages – primarily those of North America.

    Languagegeek provides free fonts and free keyboard layouts which try to cover all of the characters (alphabetical letters/Syllabics) necessary for writing Native languages. Syllabics (Algonquian, Athapaskan, Inuit, Cherokee) take centre stage with type faces in new and innovative styles.
