Here’s a little big pet peeve of mine for you.
Seul le temps te dira ce que vaut une amitié.
Only time will tell you what a friendship is worth.
Here is some reading for you: I just discovered Zeldman’s HTMHell column on web design.
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 : )
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!
- Delhi, Agra…
- India Trip by Gemal – everyday life, picture of an Indian bathroom
- Darjeeling Railway
- Trek in Himalchal Pradesh
- India 1997 by Doug Burnett
- India 98 by Danny – nice cultural comments (ie, beggars), chapter on Pune
- The Land of Splendour
- Jen’s India Room
Of course, it could go on for ever. Some meta-links:
- South Asian Women’s Forum
- Yahoo’s findings
- Links from Lonely Planet
- Travel library resources
- Indiatravelog.com – *phew*, this is becoming a big list!
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!
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
- Is navigation useful?
- How people read on the web
- Using the inverted pyramid
- Titles, headings and subject lines
- Good writing is important! (from WebReview)
- Use link titles and style sheets (though on this subject, follow Zeldman‘s advice: “use pixels, baby!”)
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.
Yay! I got a great cool free site meter. Peek at the little shiny square at the bottom of each page.
And hey, that means I have graphics on my site at last!! hehee.
