- Web Standards Group - Melbourne Meeting - 25 October 2004. Includes a document where a Fairfax representative talks about saving $1 million/year in bandwidth by converting to standards-compliant websites:
Brett Jackson talk about Fairfax Digital, and how they made the transition to CSS/XHTML with several of their highly trafficked newspaper sites.Sites included smh.com.au and theage.com.au, which experienced 135 million page impressions per month at the time.
- Publications of Dey Alexander, including articles on meaningful link text ('don't click here') and page titles; as well as various usability topics.
- Web Accessibility Network for Australian Universities. At this precise moment I'm apparently one half of the Queensland branch :)
- 43 Folders: Five Mistakes Band & Label Sites Make. In particular, the mistake is to be too cool to actually give fans the information they want. Which means they probably won't know about your next gig or be able to buy your album. Which means you've wasted time, money and bandwidth.
- An eloquent counter-argument against the Semantic Web.... Shirky: The Semantic Web, Syllogism, and Worldview :
The Semantic Web specifies ways of exposing these kinds of assertions on the Web, so that third parties can combine them to discover things that are true but not specified directly. This is the promise of the Semantic Web -- it will improve all the areas of your life where you currently use syllogisms. Which is to say, almost nowhere.
- Web Standards Group - Welcome to the Web Standards Group. Currently giving this group a bit of a test drive. Kicked its tyres last night.
- Finally, a couple of design tricks: Max Design - Remote control CSS, CollyLogic | CSS Multi-element Rollover Generator.
