posts brought to you by the category “web design”

Das eez kaput! Sometime around 2002 I spaced the entire database table that mapped individual entries to categories. Such is life. What follows is a random sampling of entries that were associated with the category. Over time, the entries will be updated and then it will be even more confusing. Wander around, though, it's still a fun way to find stuff.

10 Things about Perl and PHP

  1. the php developer's cookbook is good
  2. php is not bad but it's a giant pain in the ass. think: "oh yeah right, php doesn't support multiple inheritance. what now..."
  3. php is a pain in the ass but it doesn't require launching a copy of the perl interpreter everytime you want to do something.
  4. php doesn't have to launch the perl interpreter but then it also can't do anything setuid (safe-mode might fix this but I don't think so; not the way something like cgiwrap does anyway)
  5. php is not as powerful as mod_perl but, if we're being honest about stuff here, isn't as flaky either.
  6. php doesn't have support for imagemagick
  7. php has this thing called the 'pear' which is supposed to be like the cpan but isn't. additionally, the pear has to be installed with mod_php at compile time; wtf knows.
  8. php does have a decent template system called 'Smarty'
  9. smarty, like all the other perl templating systems, has its own 'template' syntax which means if you want to use both you're limited to doing variable substitutions.
  10. occassionally I've thought about rolling up my sleeves and teaching 'Smarty' to handle Template::Toolkit style syntax (TT knows how to DWIM with HTML::Template templates) but quickly get discouraged by the volume of other things I have to do.

David Gelernter : What is this universal information structure?

A narrative stream, which says, "Let me tell you a story. " The system shows you a 3-D stream of electronic documents flowing through time. The future (where you store your calendar, reminders, plans) flows into the present (where you keep material you're working on right now) and on into the past (where every e-mail message and draft, digital photo, application, virtual Rolodex card, video and audio clip and Web bookmark is stored, in addition to all those calendar notes and reminders that used to be part of the future and have since flowed into the past to be archived forever).

A few points : 1) How the hell did this guy get the editorial staff at the Times to okay running what is little more than a promotional brochure masked as an article? 2) For a guy claiming to make my life so much easier, it might behoove his network weenies to configure their web servers to return something more intellient than No web site is configured at this address. on a www-less URL. 3) Is the fact that the website for wunder-product opens a new window for seemingly every single internal link a design decision? Is that some clever information architect's way of reflecting The Patented Stream ? 4) "Let me tell you a story?" Someone needs to work with this guy on his analogies. Because so far the only thing this makes me expect is either one of those people you know who just never shuts up or one of those very smart people who seem to have bartered away all their social capital in exchange for brain-power and who, even if they are right and (eventually) helpful, can't open their mouths with making you want to hit them. 5) Scopeware? Who the fuck comes up with this stuff?!

The creamy white vegetable shortening filling liquefies, impregnating the sponge cake with its luscious vanilla flavor (sure, it's imitation, but nevertheless potent).

Reference Model for an Open Archival Information System

"The purpose of this document is to define the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Reference Model for an Open Archival Information System (OAIS). An OAIS is an archive, consisting of an organization of people and systems, that has accepted the responsibility to preserve information and make it available for a Designated Community... The reference model addresses a full range of archival information preservation functions including ingest, archival storage, data management, access, and dissemination. It also addresses the migration of digital information to new media and forms, the data models used to represent the information, the role of software in information preservation, and the exchange of digital information among archives. It identifies both internal and external interfaces to the archive functions, and it identifies a number of high-level services at these interfaces..." (pdf) Sound familiar?

"I'm sure you'll sleep better at night knowing this."

[T]here would be no entry for French beans, because in English we call them haricots verts. The distinction (at least here in California) is that "green beans" is often used to refer to Blue Lake Beans, also called string beans; they are generally larger and more succulent (unless overgrown). Where haricots verts are the more expensive, tender skinny French green bush beans.

I received a nice note from Ronald Bourret in response to this post.

He pointed out that there is no evil plan afoot, that O'Reilly is not the shameless corporation may have painted them to be and that re-packaging articles is common practice. "Freelance writing pays so poorly that, if you researched every article from scratch, you'd literally make a dollar or two an hour." So, I stand corrected and offer my apologies.

Ameni Rozsa : "Radio was made for the lonely,

the displaced and the out of touch. Its sound is our guardian angel, ubiquitous but unassuming. We move about our business while radio patiently follows. Its persistence soothes even our most sudden and sharp-edged isolations, softens the spaces between our souls and the ever-distant walls. In these ways, radio is forgiving, and the lonely are in need of forgiveness." Tangetially related, since the link is to a story about The National Story Project , I saw Paul Auster speak from his home in Brooklyn in the days that followed September 11. He was being interviewed by the television arm of Radio Canada and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that he speaks excellent French. It was just one of those tiny moments that you cling to when it feels like everything else sucks...

"is an interface between IRC and a web log. The DiaWebLog consists of items. An item consists of a title, url, and comments.

Larry Wall : "What I will be revealing in these columns will be the design of Perl 6.

Or more accurately, the beginnings of that design, since the design process will certainly continue after I've had my initial say in the matter. I'm not omniscient, rumors to the contrary notwithstanding. This job of playing God is a little too big for me. Nevertheless, someone has to do it, so I'll try my best to fake it. And I'll expect all of you to help me out with the process of creating history. We all have to do our bit with free will."

Teodor Zlatanov : Debugging Perl with ease

"walks you through both the built-in Perl debugger and CPAN's Devel::ptkdb. The Perl debugger is powerful but frustrating to navigate. CPAN's Devel::ptkdb, on the other hand, works wonders by simplifying code debugging and thereby saving hours of your precious time. In his discussion Zlatanov concentrates on explaining debugging methods and general concepts rather than looking at specific tools." (thanks luke )

Douglas Coupland : "These glass towers

strike many visitors as a key element of the city's character. A friend from the States told his mother that Vancouver was a city of glass buildings and no curtains, and everybody gets to watch each other. A voyeur's paradise, so to speak. To Vancouverites, these towers signify a few things: the power of global history to affect our lives, and the average citizen's alienation from the civic political process -- they're large glass totems that say "F-you" to us. At the same time, these towers symbolize a New World breeziness and a gentle desire for social transparency -- a rejection of class structures and hierarchy. Regardless of any of that, it takes only a few weeks to build a see-through. Citizens go away on holiday and return to a completely different place. If only the people who build see-throughs could be in charge of the city's roadworks."

Everyschool.org : Harvey

"is software that makes it easy for groups of peope to communicate by posting web pages, pictures, news, and threaded discussions to a shared server." see also : Lloyd Tabb : The Harvey Background Story This looks very very elegant ( even if there appears to be no documentation on *where* there data is actually stored ) and it's hard not to admire the spirit behind the project. The bunny is pretty cool too but I get weird around bunnies in general.

Whenever I see stuff like this, it makes me think of the trip I took to the Valley with J.P. and friends in his dusty orange microbus. We stopped in New Minas (?) for the obligatory trip to Frenchy's. J.P. discovered two dozen head-sized Fozie bears which soon found a new home in any available window space on the bus. They were a big hit at the vegetable stand where we bought almost as many pumpkins to keep the bears company.

Salon

"The United States foists itself onto its northern neighbor in many areas, from clothing fashions to household items and our megalithic entertainment industry. And now, according to the National Post business magazine, a new cross-cultural market has emerged -- the "jizz biz." By one estimate, Canada now imports $3 million worth of American sperm each year." Meanwhile, the National Post is also reporting that hot helmets induce hockey violence . Seriously, though, who can resist a quote like "A lot of your stress is actually arising from thermoregulatory conflict."

United States Patent # 5,819,241

"More particularly, the invention relates to an interactive process in which a database of demographic and other relevant information is used to selectively apply specific, targeted information, such as advertisements, coupons, or messages onto a letter or parcel, if there is a match between the sender and/or recipient information on the letter or parcel and the information in the database. The database is constantly updated as letters or parcels pass through the system." This has privacy violation written all over it. Consider the implications of a database that knows everyone you've written to or received a letter from.

Jeffrey Zeldman : Looking into the Web Crystal

"There are two ways forward. (1.) We can begin building alternative networks of worthwhile content, repositioning ourselves as authors, rather than service providers. (2.) We can hire on as consultants and directors to help the Money People avoid mediocrity. Whichever direction we choose - and many of us will do both - charting a survival strategy must be our first order of business, lest the Web's future look like television's past."

It's Canada Day :

and everyone is talking about child pornography. " 'Making it an offence to possess expressive material, when that material may have been created without abusing children and may never be published, distributed or sold, constitutes an extreme invasion of the values of liberty, autonomy and privacy,' Madam Justice Anne Rowles wrote."
