The Web Stalker
The Web Stalker was an artist-made browser that challenged the emerging conventions of the new medium of the web. Released at a time when Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer competed for dominance, it critiqued these commercial browsers for encouraging passive, restrictive modes of browsing. The radical interface of The Web Stalker reimagined web browsing as an engagement with the structure of the web itself. It ignored images and formatting, instead allowing users to move freely among online texts while highlighting the connections among them.

Wikileaks Documentary Makers Accuse Assange of Censorship
In WikiLeaks’ efforts to prevent the distribution of Risk , they are using the very tactics often used against them – legal threats, false security claims, underhanded personal attacks, misdirection – and with the same intentions: to suppress information and silence speech.

This sub is about people supporting each other to reduce the weight of their wilderness backpacking packs. It's a diverse community full of a variety of different kinds of hikers. From day hikers and weekend warriors to thru-hikers and triple crowners; what connects all of us is the desire to lighten our packs. Our general approach is to reflect on what we take and ask ourselves the question: Do I really need that?

Understanding and Using rem Units in CSS
The main problem with em units is that they are relative to the font size of their own element. As such they can cascade and cause unexpected results. Let’s consider the following example, where we want lists to have a font size of 12px, in the case where the root font size is the default 16px:

html {
font-size: 100%;

ul {
font-size: 0.75em;

If we have a list nested inside another list, the font size of the inner list will be 75% of the size of its parent (in this case 9px). We can still overcome this problem by using something along these lines:

ul ul {
font-size: 1em;

This does the trick, however we still have to pay a lot of attention to situations where nesting gets even deeper.

With rem units, things are a simpler:

html {
font-size: 100%;

ul {
font-size: 0.75rem;

Overcoming Internet Disillusionment: On the Principles of Meme Design
Our disenchantment with the internet is a fact. Yet again, enlightenment does not bring us liberation but depression. The once fabulous aura that surrounded our beloved apps, blogs, and social media has deflated. Swiping, sharing, and liking have begun to feel like soulless routines, empty gestures. We’ve started to unfriend and unfollow, yet we can’t afford to delete our accounts, as this implies social suicide. If “truth is whatever produces most eyeballs,” as Evgeny Morozov states, a general click strike seems like the only option left. But since this is not happening, we feel trapped and console ourselves with memes.

Hållbara transporter
Om vi tittar på hur vi svenskar transporterar oss, så är mer än hälften av resorna med bil. Våra bilar är både tyngre och använder mer bränsle än bilarna i Europa. Mer än hälften av svenskarna åker bil varje dag. Intressant är att hälften av alla bilresor är kortare än tre kilometer. Tänk då om vi kunde ersätta en del av dessa resor med att cykla och gå istället!

The World is Flat Pedaled
The tides seem to be turning away from clipless toward flat pedals on touring cyclists, with the rise of casual touring promoted by Rivendell and hike and bike bikepacking as promoted by Cass Gilbert. And here is the real reason why flats are more superior than clipless pedals, they are multifunctional. For anyone who has ever packed for an extended bike tour knows that having multi use items is extremely useful as it saves space and weight, yet people still believe in clipless pedals and off the bike shoes/sandals, when one pair of sneakers functions for both. For me, bike touring is about exploration, and exploring off the bike is half the fun, from incredible day hikes, to museum walks, to unplanned games of soccer, not skating everywhere is fantastic. Another tenant that the flat pedal fulfills is the keep it simple stupid attitude, an attitude I shortly picked up from Surly upon purchase of my Cross-Check. As an example, I remember being a few days north of San Francisco last summer when I met a couple traveling the coast and it was about this point that one of their touring pedal cleats was so torn up from being walked on over rocks, curbs, pavement, what have you, that they could no longer clip in and needed to limp by on a small platform to get to San Francisco to replace their cleats. Another example comes from an old article from Urban Velo magazine that I found, in which these avid cycle tourists cited the tool or piece that they’d never leave without again and it was consistently pedal bolts. When you go flat, that’s one less tool and one less headache.

Patrik Tegnér – Handbyggda cyklar
En handbyggd cykel kan utformas efter beställarens specifikationer och mått. Det blir möjligt att på konstruktionsstadiet ta hänsyn till de funktioner och den utrustning, stänkskärmar, belysning, pakethållare etc som cykeln ska utrustas med, dessa blir då en integrerad del av cykeln istället för någon som hängs på i efterhand.

Specialized Sequoia adventure bike released alongside Burra Burra luggage
The final item in the Burra Burra line is the Pizza Bag (£70), which is designed to fit on a pizza rack (sometimes known as a porteur rack). Porteur racks are all the rage now and having used one on the Specialized AWOL, we can see why. Small enough to be portable but big enough to carry a decent amount of kit, we think they’re perfect for the commute.

Reddit.com/r/trackers/: 6 months on - Seems like Redacted has won the "What.CD Replacement" fight
May be too early to call, but seems like Redacted has very easily won the fight for the new #1 music tracker. I updated the Tracker Tracker today and noticed that Redacted saw a sharp increase in torrents and users while Apollo saw a very minor increase in torrents & a sharp decline in users. I wouldn't call Apollo dead, but... it's certainly not very alive.

Fonts, typefaces and all things typographical
Small caps are uppercase glyphs drawn at a lowercase scale. A common misconception—unfortunately reinforced by most word processing programs as well as by CSS on the web—is that a small cap is just a regular capital letter scaled uniformly down to a smaller size. In actuality, a proper small cap is a carefully crafted glyph that differs in significant ways from a uniformly-scaled-down capital letter.

​Optical HR accuracy: The experts speak
That's the thing with a lot of these optical blood flow wearables. If you're just walking and running then they have good algorithms to get rid of light and movement artefacts, but if the intensity is a lot higher, above 160 beats, then the blood passing is so fast that when you add movement as well, it becomes really difficult to get the right reading.

"It's physiology not technology. It's a matter of the unpredictability of the blood through the wrist in an area you can't control. Ear tech is going to beat the wrist because it suffers less physiological interference.

"Anything more than a one or two second delay isn't acceptable. The reason being that HIIT sessions are about pushing people to the limit. If you're doing 10-20 second intervals and there's a delay of 10 seconds, it's beyond unacceptable.

The founder of Pinboard on why understanding fandom is good for business
The biggest reason for me is that I’ve been friends with Joshua [Schachter], the co-founder, and a bunch of the early Delicious people since forever. My roommate when I lived in New York was Peter Gadjokov, who was the other co-founder. This was their beloved project and I didn’t want to see it disappear or be bought by someone who wanted to use it strictly for SEO or marketing stuff. I thought it was really important given the amount of history and the special affection that some people have for this site, that it not end up in a startup graveyard.

I’m an archivist. That’s what Pinboard is for, so the idea that these sites just go offline and take millions and millions of pages of bookmarks with them is one of the things I hate the most. I’m glad to get the chance to preserve something that changed my life in a number of ways.
