How To Render Beautiful LEGO Pictures In 5 Easy Steps

Infographics are a popular, and fun, tool to share information. I thought I’d give it a try using Canva’s infographic template. This is a test of their embed feature to see how it would look in my blog.

Testing Flickr Embeds

On my regular blog, I usually share using BBCODE. That has some advantages as I can dictate how the img tag is expanded. Yet, as I use more HTML code, especially on my test site, I thought I’d try out the EMBED option. It looks good, but jury is out on allowing scripts to run from other sites. As long as it doesn’t impact load time or mess with my site, I’m fine. More testing will determine my comfort level.

Copying Is the Best Form of Flattery

Their site is clean and crisp, a great modern interface. In my continuing journey to improve my own site, I decided to code a few of their design ideas into my test blog. In due time, I’ll port them to my primary blog as well.

Having Fun With Change, Logs That Is

Design work, source Unsplash.comTesting is so much fun! I ran across a few websites that had nice lists that were clean and modern. Since I’ve been testing flat design with bootstrap, I thought I’d create my own change log page.


I ran across this cool technology today from Microsoft Live Labs called Photosynth. Basically, this software allows you to view a collection of photographs in using a 3D browser. They have a Tech Preview that completely blew me away. I can't wait to try make my own collection, it was that impressive. Give it a try!

Update: Live Labs is closed, but Photosyth lives on as its own product. Link updated to new location.
