A logo must be a positive depiction of the product or service it represents.

Lazy loading

filed under: @ 18:10:03

Every JavaScript file that needs to be loaded is a new connection to the server, and every connection to the server means more data; all this occurs before the end user even gets to interact with the page. Thankfully, there is a better way to do this - loading pieces of your web application as the user wants them.

Cities at night from space

filed under: @ 20:38:23

To an observer in space, humanity's footprints on the surface of the Earth are large and varied. They include the regular patterns of irrigated cropland, straight lines of roads and railways running across continents, reservoirs on river systems, and the cement rectangles of ports and seawalls along coastlines. But what about humanity's signature footprint - cities? By day, cities viewed from space can blend into the countryside, or appear as gray smudges, depending on the style of development and size of the urban area.
