new multilayer 3-d vertical scroll effect

Check out the jobs page on the  AirBNB web site. There’s a multilayer vertical scroll effect emulating depth which I have never seen before. It’s visually pretty rocking-cool.  I wonder where else it’s being used, if anywhere — I don’t recall seeing it elsewhere.  Very cool!

San Francisco Silent Film Festival event: Napoleon

Apparently the Holy Grail of silent film experiences, the current restoration of Napoleon plays at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland this weekend and next. My web site for The San Francisco Silent Film Festival has been holding up well so far, fun to watch the Google Analytics logs with all of the media attention driving […]

More Code Examples

Added a new bit of code play to my examples page. New jQuery slideshow with a better cross-fade, using images this time instead of text. Also changed indicator dots in the second example to auto-populate based on the number of slides. Soon I’ll have to split examples into multiple pages.

Slideshow vs. Internet (curse!) Explorer

Man! What a waste of time. Simple jQuery slideshow, working great in Safari, Chrome, Firefox…. then checked IE7.  In IE image would appear for the set interval, then disappear for same interval, then next image, then interval, etc.  I expect CSS problems, but Javascript too? Curse! Turned out that having curved corners and other HTML5 […]

Someday laying out a web page won’t be such a collection of kludges. The layout grids item particularly should give […]

new aeous, old wp

Uploaded the new (rather severely designed) site files for aeous.net, haven’t yet redesigned the blog template. Still, a better presentation of resumé and portfolio, not to mention it’s great to watch HTML5 come together. The only troubling note is the constant flakiness of Adobe’s BrowserLab for testing in Internet Explorer (curse!), concurrent with my install […]

Muse on Adobe

Attended one of the Adobe InDesign User Group meetings recently.  Useful presentations, one on accessible PDF generation, the other on the forthcoming Muse program which promises to grease the path from designing in InDesign to generating a full-fledged and rich web site. Looks very intriguing, and anything that cuts the coding slog would probably help […]

Kalassal: A Colossal Art Sale/Fundraiser

stopped in at the Kalassal: A Colossal Art Sale/Fundraiser and picked up several very small Seiko Tachibana prints. Also have my eye on a larger print by her, and a beautiful mezzotint triptych (‘Clevis’) by Carol Wax — not to mention lots of other great art. All at half price!
