Poppin' My SXSW Cherry
In exactly two weeks, I'll be heading to Austin, TX, to attend the SXSW '09 Interactive conference for six days of socializing, partying and, oh yeah, probably some learning. This will be my first year attending, and I'm (finally) starting to get pretty excited.
Useful Tweets 16
I was super busy with work last week and, as such, was relatively quiet on Twitter. Still managed to post a handful of links that referenced web design/development resources, interesting products, things that made me laugh and other stuff I (loosely) deem "useful." Don't want to wait for this linky goodness? Follow me on Twitter.
One Step Forward, Two Steps Back
I started the 100 push ups program back in early July 2008. It is now 7 months later, and I still haven't completed the program. Crazy, I know.
You Get What You Pay For
The other day, an acquaintance asked me to take a look at a not–for–profit site and offer some CSS feedback. I'm always willing to offer input and suggestions, but upon taking a look at the site it was entirely unclear to me what input I could offer other than the site needed a major design overhaul. As it turns out, a design overhaul is exactly what this acquaintance meant by "CSS feedback." He asked if I could create a mock…

BarCamp Albuquerque 3 Recordings Now Available
Back in September 2008, Reid Givens helped organize the wonderfully successful BarCamp Albuquerque 3. We had an amazing line-up of talented speakers who presented on a wide range of topics.

I've been publishing this Useful Tweets series for a few months now, and I've decided it's time for some changes. After looking at my Google Analytics, I noticed these posts get comparatively fewer pages views and have higher bounce rates. Rather than scrapping the series entirely (at least not yet), I decided I should try a new approach in presenting the links. In previous posts, I simply re-published the original tweet, along with date and time, and a link to…
Webuquerque: Social Media Means Business
This past Wednesday night, Webuquerque presented "Social Media Means Business," a panel-type discussion on using social media for business and communication. We had another great turnout, with over 30 attendees! If you were unable to join us, here's what you missed.

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
