  • 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!

  • 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).

  • WordOff – Wordoff applies the following rules to strip the cruft that is pasted into WYSIWYG editors from Word:<br />
    <br />
    * Attributes are removed for all elements except <a>s<br />
    * <span>s and <div>s are removed<br />
    * Empty elements are removed<br />
    * Consecutive line breaks are reduced to two<br />
    <br />
    Wordoff is written in Python and runs on Django in Google App Engine. It was designed as a demonstration project for a short talk at Oxford Geek Nights.
  • About | Designing User Experience – When I grow up I want to be a technical writer, web developer, user experience designer, information architect, and an instructional designer for adult education. <br />
    <br />
    I just want to start learning information through osmosis. I’d like to be a brilliant expert by tomorrow, please. And I spend about $2000 a year buying books in an effort to become one someday. I want to be buried with my web design library, and if Heaven doesn’t have an O’Reilly or Sitepoint warehouse, I’m afraid I can do without it.<br />
    <br />
    Take an enthusiastic, ambitious, overzealous, and at times hyper student of just about everything, and give her a copy of WordPress and a domain. This is what you end up with.

  • 12 Tools To Check Your Site’s Accessibility – When you design any web site, one of your first goals is to make sure you get as many visitors as you can, but have you checked the true accessibility of your site? Can a color blind person read it? Are all of your scripts cooperating? Your colors may look nice together, but is the contrast different enough that it is all legible? Well, those questions are exactly what these 12 tools are designed to help you answer, and it certainly may never be a bad idea to run more than one to make sure they are all telling you the same thing.<br />
    <br />
    One caveat to this list, while these tools are helpful and will help you spot some problems, never trust them to be the ultimate authority, but more of a starting point on your road to the smoothest running site you can build.

  • My Love/Hate Affair With Typekit – Jeffrey Zeldman Presents The Daily Report – Speeding up design acceptance<br />
    <br />
    While browser improvements and web standards alone provided multiple partial solutions, Typekit offered a complete solution that just worked. And the people behind Typekit (including Bryan Mason and Jason Santa Maria) did everything right: they reached out to the type design, graphic design, and standards-based web design communities; they worked with vendor after vendor to offer as many fonts as possible; they spoke everywhere, marketing their venture one lecture and even one designer at a time.<br />
    <br />
    Typekit excited the web design community about type and proved that licensing and hosting web type was a viable business, providing options and convenience for designers and their clients, while bringing new revenue to type designers and protecting their intellectual property.

  • httpd, the Apache HTTP server – The Apache HTTP Server is a “heavy duty” network server that Subversion can leverage. Via a custom module, httpd makes Subversion repositories available to clients via the WebDAV/DeltaV protocol, which is an extension to HTTP 1.1 (see http://www.webdav.org/ for more information.) This protocol takes the ubiquitous HTTP protocol that is the core of the World Wide Web, and adds writing—specifically, versioned writing—capabilities. The result is a standardized, robust system that is conveniently packaged as part of the Apache 2.0 software, is supported by numerous operating systems and third-party products, and doesn't require network administrators to open up yet another custom port. [22] While an Apache-Subversion server has more features than svnserve, it's also a bit more difficult to set up. With flexibility often comes more complexity.

    <br />
    Once reserved for the emperors and the nobles, the prized white tea is only harvested during a short period in the springtime. The young and tender leaves are free from any process. White tea brews to a pale yellow colour, and has a unique bamboo fragrance with a slightly nutty taste.<br />
    Ingredients<br />
    Organic Bai Mu Dan (White Peony) white tea leaves from China's Jiangxi province (Camelia sinensis).

  • Plupload – A tool for uploading files using Flash, Silverlight, Google Gears, HTML5 or Browserplus – [[Wow! This is super impressive. I haven't tried it yet - but I will definitely give it a spin. And hosted on GitHub.

Plupload is currently separated into a Core API and a jQuery upload queue widget this enables you to either use it out of the box or write your own custom implementation.

  • Eight Tools for Capturing Screenshots in Firefox 3 – It isn’t difficult to imagine that we need to take a lot of screenshots during the course of a day here at Mashable. Sure you can do the old “Print Screen” trick, but that’s a lot more hassle than it’s worth when there are so many great options out there, especially if you are using Firefox as your browser. Here are eight Firefox 3 screenshot tools that are worth trying.

    These tools will do everything from save just a section of a page to entire pages, as well as give you the ability to upload images automatically to specified image hosting services. In case you were wondering, I use FireShot for all of the images in the lists I create.

  • Content Management Strategy, How To Develop The Other CMS
  • 10 Completely Free Wireframe and Mockup Applications : Speckyboy Design Magazine – Every web designer and developer should have a good and reliable wireframe (mockup or prototype) tool at there disposal.

    The downside is that a good and reliable wireframe application can come at a heavy price, have you seen the cost of a good wireframe application?
