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.

Lovely use of YQL, jQuery and the hCard microformat to populate web forms takes us one step closer to having a single, consolidated set of personal data that can be distributed across the internet.

The more I use Twitter, the more I encounter those online moments that just scream for a classic sound effect — like the cheesy joke that still made me chuckle. I give you instant rimshot. What about attempts at humor that fail miserably? instant crickets! And, finally, for tweets wherein someone admits to something silly or clumsy, sad trombone.

Some (apparently) widely-used and well-known Norwegian sites are telling IE 6 to take a hike. Was the final push I needed to do the same on this blog.

My inner child (who just happens to be a 13 year-old boy) is perpetually amused by animals humping. These Japanese coin banks truly speak to that inner child. Only to be outdone by a find from a few weeks back of balloon animals doing it like they do on the Discovery Channel … well maybe more like the Spice Channel.

If you are going to release an album, take a cue from Josh Freese's promotion of his new solo venture, Since 1972. If I were rich, I would no doubt throw down the $75k to eat shrooms and then tool around Hollywood in a Lamborghini. Well, that or the $500 Sizzler all–you–can–eat shrimp.

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.
