RSS in Plain English

This video from Common Craft does a great job at explaining RSS. It is so simple with just a camera and some hand props. No acting involved.

PHPture is a free web-based viewer of your Aperture library. Looks like you just upload your entire library and it can be viewed online via PHPture. Now I just need a camera worthy of using Aperture with!

Domain Names

Kevin Ham.03When I feel that my 6 or so domain names are expensive to renew or that my employers 300+ names are hard to manage, imagine what it must be like for Kevin Ham. Ham is the owner of many domain names, some, like 'greeting.com' that he paid a mere $350,000 for. That's right. That is no typo. He started buying domain names while he was in medical school and soon abandoned that to become a domain name tycoon. With over 300,000 domains, he seems to be succeeding. Most of these names are only placeholder pages for ads served up that are mildly relevant to the URL.

Don't forget to Backup

Apparently after harping on it's readers to make sure to backup, Business 2.0 magazine forgot to check theirs:

On the night of Monday, April 23, the magazine's editorial system crashed, wiping out all the work that had been done for its June issue. The backup server failed to back up.

I've learned it once or twice myself but a backup is only as good as the recovery. Go, back thyself up!

Delta Updates their logo

Thanks to the wonderful blog by Armin Vit called “Brand New”, I found out about the recent redesign of Delta's classic logo. While much has changed, much as remained the same and it is still the same identity, though stronger. This redesign coincides with the recent emergence from bankruptcy of the airline and I think that it does a great job and refreshing the look of the company while still maintaining the roots of it's past. Read the full post for more details.
