I know it seems like I haven’t had a links post in a long time. And that is because I haven’t. I haven’t had a free Saturday since school started. Every week has been a blur, football games, pep rallies, family events and more. So, here are the much awaited links.
1 – I like the fact that the new Twitter web site design uses the Golden Ratio.
2 – This is just an absolutely incredible photo. I am always telling my students that they have to find a new way to look at the same old thing. And who hasn’t seen the space shuttle being pulled out to a launch? But, have you seen it this way?
3 – This took a lot of guts. The valedictorian of this school chose to criticize the quality of the education she received, even though nearly everyone would agree she got the very best.
4 – Here is a list of web sites all web designers should be looking into.
5 – My students were actually included on overheard in the newsroom. “B-Roll is like a screen saver for your life.”
6 – This is just funny.
7 – Six reasons your travel (or anytime) photos suck. Same reasons any of your photos suck. From SFGate.
8 – Before and After Magazine – don’t enlarge things just to fill the space.
9 – How to speak during a broadcast without making breathing sounds. Via Advancing The Story.
10 – Red and Blue are the most powerful colors on the web. Great graphic from the Cool Infographics Blog.
11 – This is a funny front page. Not sure if it is photoshop or real.
12 – How do people really watch the local news at home? They don’t give it their full attention unless you give them a reason. Thanks Bob Kaplitz.
13 – The city of Chicago gives citizen journalists the same right to credentials as professional journalists. I say this is a win for Journalism.
14 – How To Open A Book from the Principal’s Page. I think I’m going to put a copy of this with every new yearbook this year.
15 – This is really for much earlier in the year, but you can add it to your next year file – 15 Terms Every Yearbook Staffer Should Know. Thanks Yearbook Blog.
16 – The Texas Tribune has a great audio piece about Why Everyone Can’t Go To College.
