With my busy writing schedule Useful Tweets has gone from a weekly series to bi-monthly to whenever I can fucking find the time. Not to mention, I've noticed I've been much less noisyprolific on Twitter these days.

But I'm keeping this series going, in hopes things get back to normal after my final manuscript is submitted in late August. So, here are links from the past three weeks' tweets that referenced web design/development resources, interesting products, things that made me laugh and other stuff I (loosely) deem "useful."

May 31 – June 21, 2009

If you are using microformats in your Rails applications, check out this assert-microformats to help you test your microformats.

As a tiny cog in a huge corporate monster, I particularly enjoy the irreverence of Scotty Got an Office Job, but I hadn't laughed so hard until he lost it.

James Gunn's PG Porn series is one of the best things I've ever seen. My favorite episode, Nailing Your Wife is my favorite (um, maybe because of my dream man, Nathan Fillion). "For people who love everything about porn, except the sex."

You too can expand your profanity horizons: learn how to swear 100 ways in 20 languages.

I really wish I understood why some conference presenters (and attendees) think that objectifying women and being overtly in professional presentations is acceptable. I'm not a prude. I'm a professional (you fucktards).

Clever and cute wedding invitation makes me smile … and not just because of the interesting typography.

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.
