Technical RollUp

For anyone interesting in who and what Hackers really are you can listen to Paul Graham (the author) on the topic. If you are a technical person or you want to understand a technical person, this book is for you, I enjoyed it immensely and would highly recommend it.

A nice piece from Chris McEvoy on Usersaurus, Folksonomy and the abdication of responsibility for design. Do you really what to see the big picture regarding the choice of baby names by social data analysis. There's a nice article called Broken Metaphors: Blogging as Liminal Practice on the tensions underlying conceptualizations of blogging. If we hadn't already seen loads of these, here's another Visualizing Online Social Networks but it does have the fun and usability angles covered for once.

Digital Web Magazine has a nice overview on the state of the web piece called Web 2.0 for Designers. There's also a nice piece on trying to make including accessibility less for a chore for designers on uiGarden.
