THAT agency? Sure enough, THAT agency. :)

Button Blast

GetElastic did an interesting post showing over 100 add to cart buttons and commenting on their design and use of verbiage. I’m not a big “Buy Now” fan – sounds too much like Amazon’s “one click” purchasing model; I prefer “Add to Cart” even at the risk of seeming downmarket.

Weekend Break: Kipple, Note Taking, What is blogging like?

Filed under: Fun — thatsoftwareguy @ 7:50 am


“Kipple drives out non-kipple” – Phillip K. Dick

Dick wrote described the cruft, crap, and detritus of life as kipple, and said that it was subject to its own form of Gresham’s Law.

Note Taking

I’m a huge fan of ubiquitous capture (a la GTD), so I got a great kick out of this post by Mark Andreessen about Hollywood mogul H. C. Witwer’s note taking habits.   I particularly like Marc’s suggestion that you “write notes on a pad of paper without taking the pad out of your pocket” – sort of a cross between Harry Potter and Merlin Mann!

What is blogging like?

A fun post from ProBlogger.
