Here is some reading for you: I just discovered Zeldman’s HTMHell column on web design.

CSS and PHP Tutorials [en]

The two small tutorials I made for users.f2s are finally finished and online. I wont duplicate them on this site, so you’ll just have to go and read them over there : )

CSS tutorial (Cascading Style Sheets)
PHP basics

Actually, I have duplicated them on this site, in the coding section: CSS and PHP. Make your choice!

India Web [en]

This post started out small, but it is turning out to be a rather lengthy collection of India travel related links… : )

I did some research with Google and bumped into a number of sites containing travel logs (travelogues) of India.
I spent some time skimming through them. I read things I can relate to, others I disagree on. Some I know to be right, some I know to be wrong. But never mind. They all tell of a human experience similar to mine.
Almost all of them have pictures – but they load slowly, I must say.
Have a look for yourself!

India travelogues

Of course, it could go on for ever. Some meta-links:

This is not a “quality” listing. I haven’t explored each site in-depth. It is more of a starting point – but in any case, all the links presented here seemed to be promising in some way.

Awaiting your comments!

Jakob Nielsen Links [en]

Despite all the criticism I have heard/read lately on Jakob Nielsen, I have always found his alertbox articles very interesting.
Of course, one has to keep in mind that his standpoint is usability, not web design, and that it is therefore to be taken with a pinch of salt or two.

Here is a little collection of links I have gathered, mostly from his site, a few from other places.

Writing for the web

Other “website” stuff

Phew! I think that’s about it.
Remember, posting these links here doesn’t mean I adhere to everything the articles say. It means I think they are good reading.

En fait, cette note intéresse surtout les francophones, comme le texte en question est en français…

Emergence: a Teenage Essay [en]

I added one of my teenage essays to the writing section a few days back: Emergence.

India [en]

I feel an itch to write about India. All these classes on Indian culture at university are bringing me back there.

There are so many things I have to say.

For a start, here is what I have been telling people these last three (heavens!) months when they ask me the usual questions.

So, how was the trip? Tell me about it!

I must admit I’m sick of hearing this question. And as university has just started, I’m again meeting a whole bunch of people I haven’t seen in over a year and who are impatient for news.

The trip was overall a very positive experience but the first three months were really hard… >>>

Would you say India is “behind” the West?

As much as I would like to be able to say that cultures are not to be hierarchically classified, and that they are all equal, but different, my experience of India has somewhat disturbed this position. Let me explain… >>>
