This blog is now defunct, but you can find more stuff over at my personal site

December Link Dump

All-Purpose Pronoun
I’m a big fan of the singular they/them/their, it works well enough and is far less annoying than approaches such as alternating the gender.
Space Monolith Action Figure
Now a real product, but sadly I spotted it too late to ask for one for Christmas.
Head JS
Provides tools for loading scripts, smoothing over IE problems, etc. It does look pretty nifty.
A Pokemon-style game played with web sites.
What’s wrong with OpenID?
The whole notion of online identity is horribly tangled up with tricky issues of usability, technology, market share and privacy.
Ben the Bodyguard
A slick teaser site that ties page scrolling to animations.
Comic Sans Criminal
Another page using scrolling well.
Offers embedding-friendly licensing and webfont packages for only a small extra cost.
Cat and Girl - Cash Money 2010
The economics of webcomics.
This Is Spinal Tap (1984) - IMDb
Spot the Easter egg.
Anatomy of the Friend Spam Dark Pattern
Apart from anything else, sending new users directly to the Twitter OAuth page is just plain stupid.
One Chance
Manages to be actually rather moving despite glitches and obvious themes/messages.
