Possibly the best video ever Nov 23, 13, 2:58 p.m.
A guy called me earlier today saying:
"I found your CV online and you make very good web builder person for my business. You pay up front and I give you many returns on your time and pleasure."
I asked him about his business and he said he had to go but to look at his "very positive business forward thinking business plan" online.
I thought it must have been some strange scammer but after watching his video, I'm convinced he's legit.
I present to you, PaidOnBills.Co.Uk
Codepen Nov 12, 13, 5:12 a.m.
Post your Codepen here.
I'd love to see what some of you guys do.
SMR - This weekend Nov 12, 13, 4:32 p.m.
Is anyone going to it this weekend at the Old Truman Brewery?
I'm going on Saturday.
I think the name is banned, so here's a link for London people: http://j.mp/SiMiRo
UK Umbrella company recommendations? Nov 3, 13, 2:17 p.m.
Just got a short term contract gig and it's my first time going down the freelancer sort-your-own-tax route.
Can anyone recommend a decent Umbrella company they use? I've found a "Top 10 Umbrella Companies" (http://www.umbrellacompanies.or... off Google but would prefer somewhere vouched for through here probably.
I do have the option of invoicing through my current startup but if the Umbrella doesn't cost much more then I'd prefer that to avoid the hassle.
If you would recommend anything else instead of an umbrella company that'd be welcome as well. I'm looking for a good deal but more keen for ease of setting up.
"Getting Started" examples Jun 6, 13, 1:18 a.m.
Hey guys. I'm looking for good examples of websites' "Getting Started" pages and content.
Things that try and get new users to see/try all the benefits of the service early on in the experience.
Some services force the user to go through this. Others give them a reference of what they have to do still.
I have a bunch of examples from services I use but I'm looking for good examples outside of those.
Services with incentivised onboarding May 30, 13, 5:53 a.m.
Hey guys and gals.
I'm trying to find web services that do a great job of motivating people to sign up for their service and get using it as frequently as possible after signing up.
Methods web services use to prevent the nosedive from number of people signed up to number of active users.
Dropbox has a numbered checklist of things to do in it's getting started.
Pinterest and Twitter both just throw you into doing stuff and don't give you time to think "meh I'll do this later."
Foursquare had a numbered list and location-tailored things to do:
Anything that uses gamification to get people using their stuff early is exactly what I'm after. "If you do XXXXX now then you get YYYYY" sort of stuff.
Thanks in advance for any help!
Shit promo shots Dec 20, 12, 8:17 a.m.
The incubator my company is part of told us they had arranged for all the companies in the incubator to have promo shots and footage taken.
We got our promo photo back today and I thought I'd share it.
I am in disbelief that they actually paid someone to do this!
It's 2 individual shots poorly Photoshopped onto a stock image of our building at bizarre angles. What's odd is that the incubator outsourced shit photographer and video prod guys when our incubation space is mainly video production and photography companies that would do a much better job.
The email we received from them:
"We've put the content live for you to take a look at (http://dmic.org.uk/case-studies... I'm sure you'll agree it looks fantastic, and that Michele has done a superb job with the photography."
Modesty Oct 24, 12, 9:40 a.m.
This popped up in my Twitter feed today.
"Your website is usually a customer's first impression. We do some of the best websites on the planet, so get in contact with us today."
Any guesses who said this?

A friend made this. Doesn't work for me for some reason but it's a bit of fun.
Give yourself Steve Buscemi eyes...
Web project up for grabs (London) Apr 24, 12, 8:51 a.m.
Posting on behalf of a video production guy in my incubation space who is pitching a project and will need either an awesome multitalented web design/dev chap or a small team.
What I have been told the website pitch involves:
1.) The site needs to be accessible by 50 users (password protected site). Not publicly accessible
2.) Dynamic image/thumbnail display - I showed him jQuery Isotope and he says that is exactly the sort of filtering he wants.
3.) Search functionality based on keywords & the admin of the site must be able to create categories for the images
4.) Search functionally based on color (probably same as above, just with a nice colour UI) - Like Google Images search by color.
5.) There will initially be 150 searchable images with tags (but this can expand over time)
6.) Thumbnail size needs to be adaptable (small/medium/large)
7.) High res Images need to be able to be downloaded and usage selected if it's for web, advertising and this needs to be tracked.
Essentially it's a small-scale stock site for internal use by a company - A way of managing their own branding material and in-house image libraries.
My friend is after a rough idea of what anyone who may be available may charge, and if possible a breakdown of what your fees might be per section.
Be aware this is for a pitch but he's only asking for your cost estimates and portfolio right now - No spec work!
If you're interested, send your price ,availability and portfolio to firstname.lastname@example.org...
Worst Thing of the Day Apr 18, 12, 2:43 p.m.
...Coz my 'please send me condolences' thread needs to be an 'of the day' type.
Got burgled today.
3TB of external hard drives (ALL MY BACKUPS)
1 Traumatised little dog who was shoved in the basement during the break in...
Nothing too valuable but my girlfriend's wonderful little superspecced Hackintosh laptop got taken... And whoever has it now does not know how awesome it is. OC'ed C2Duo to 3.1GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB Internal Storage with an 80GB SSD for OSX and it'll be pawned for like £100 because it's a not-new Dell on the outside!
JS Bookmarklets Feb 16, 12, 5:10 a.m.
I found this article which lists some good ones:
But wondering if there are any really nice examples that I may have missed.
I'm more interested in bookmarklets that add and enhance functionality of a product or website, rather than just ones for fun (such as SneakyGCR Goggles and Asteroids)
Sign In with FB/Twitter Nov 10, 11, 3:48 a.m.
Lately I've seen the 'Sign In with Twitter' and 'Facebook Connect' options available on lots of sites.
When it comes to having to do some research however, my mind has drawn a blank with the exception of Klout.com
I'm looking for websites that allow you to sign in/sign up for services using FB, Twitter, LinkedIn and such.
Any example is a good example.
