In the Distant Fog

The Internet Society has just released a report written by Analysys Mason, entitled “How the Internet continues to sustain growth and innovation,” that provides data and analysis of the continual investment and innovation that have sustained the Internet through growth in developed and, more recently, developing countries.

A Data-oriented Approach

A data-oriented approach for distributed service environments is, again, in my list of interests.

Used extensivelly in the ancient days with technologies like Flex, I guess one should consider to have a look at it,  before designing a project.

More Links a Front-End Developer Should Take Over

Rediscovering the Button Element.
Buttons created with the BUTTON element function just like buttons created with the INPUT element, but they offer richer rendering possibilities: the BUTTON element may have content. For example, a BUTTON element that contains an image functions like and may resemble an INPUT element whose type is set to “image”, but the BUTTON element type allows content.
Pure HTML5 Canvas and JavaScript particles.
To create the desired effect, we have to realize that we really need to be subtracting a constant value from the alpha channel of previous pixels, rather than multiplying by a number less than one.
