Google Summer of Code

Lembra quando a gente era criança e ia pra colônia de férias por um mês? A Google faz isso, só que em vez de jogar bola os garotos vão fazer código. Eu quase escuto o cara dos tambores "Mais código! Mais código!". Mas os garotos gostam - o site de busca paga US$ 4.500 pra eles trabalharem em projetos open source nos quais eles trabalhariam amarradões de graça.

Subvert from Within: a user-focused employee guide

It's one thing to talk about--and execute--a user-focused approach when you're a small company or an independent contractor. But what if you are, in fact, a fish in a sea as vast as, say, Microsoft? Can you hope to make a difference? Or does working at the "DarkStar" suck the soul from any employee with a passionate users bent?

IGN: TGS 2005: Hands-on the Revolution Controller

The main source of input is nothing short of unexpected and untraditional. It is essentially a wireless, square remote that works something like a computer mouse would in 3D space. Imagine sticking your hand into a virtual box and having your TV understand how it's moving in there. Now you're getting the idea.

Sennheiser HD 201 @ HeadRoom - Right Between Your Ears

Our jaws just droped when we first heard this headphone. You have to understand how bad cheap, big, sealed cans usually sound, but Sennheiser got it amazingly right with the sound of these cans. Sure they are a bit uneven, but they just sparkle and sing in an unusually good way. These are the perfect headphone to give as a gift because the reciever will always be amazed at how good they sound; and they are the perfect headphone for comercial uses like museums and dental chairs first becase they are cheap, and then because your clients will appreciate the plesant experience of good sound.

Minha mais nova aquisição. Assino embaixo.

You really have to see it in action before you can see how amazingly useful this is. The Fold N' Drop interface lets you manage your windows as if they were stacks of papers on a desk. You first grab the file you want to move, and then you can lift corners and peek under, you can leaf through them, one by one, until you find the window you want and drop your file right in.

Jeff Raskin

Morre aos 61, vítima de câncer, Jef Raskin, um dos caras mais importantes da história do design de interfaces. Conhecido como o "pai do macintosh", Jef era um dos últimos daqueles gênios que criaram a microinformática como nós conhecemos. Seu livro, "The Humane Interface", foi um dos melhores que li em toda minha vida e certamente um dos que me inspirou a fazer o que faço.
