I’ve decided to resume something I used to do frequently on this blog: link roundups. I have a little to say about a lot of links, and rather clog up the site with lots of one line posts, I’m aiming to to do a weekly post on interesting stuff from around the web. You can also follow my Google reader shared items, if you are so inclined.
- Pictory has a new ‘issue’ out called Coming Home, and it’s my favourite one yet. Pictory specialises in user submitted photos with short stories attached. I love photography focussing on the small, seemingly mundane things in life, and this set seems to capture that perfectly.
- Michael Deal has produced some great infographics, Charting the Beatles. It’s stunning, nerdy, and fascinating. (via the wonderful Information is Beautiful)
- Jon Hicks explains Why You Can Never Work ‘Full Time’ as a freelancer. This is something that is not mentioned nearly enough to new freelancers. I really wish someone had explained this to me better when I started.
- Fellow RefreshEdinburgh member John Sutherland explains how to register an International Domain Name (a domain using unicode characters). From this article I managed to register ʎpuɐ.com at the weekend (I haven’t pointed it at anything yet).
- The Feltron 2009 Annual Report, released this week, is as fine a piece of infographic design as the previous years Annual Reports. Take some time to browse it.
- Create quick, simple website wireframes online. This could be very, very handy.
- I bought a new camera this week. It’s a Panasonic GF1 and I love it so far (some photos on Flickr). The decision was basically made by this amazing article/field test/review.
