Everything you need to know about buying a camera | The Verge
This may all look like an overwhelming amount of information, but things become much simpler once you answer a few questions for yourself. Want simplicity above all else? Choose between a good cameraphone and a stylish point-and-shoot. If you're eager to get bigger and better images without sacrificing portability, take a look at mirrorless cameras. For the best image quality and speed, you'll be shopping in the DSLR aisle, though we don't advise jumping straight into full-frame territory. Whatever you do, be prepared to grow progressively more obsessed with light as you get deeper into photography. The intensity, diffusion, and temperature of light is often just as important as your choice of equipment.

Making maps, part 1: Less interactivity « News Apps Blog
A couple weeks ago, while drinking some beers with my teammates Chris and Ryan N., we got to talking about how we could improve our maps. Interacting with maps embedded in a box is unsatisfying and often confusing. The webpage scrolls, the map zooms, the behavior of your mousewheel is unpredictable, and the maps are always too damned small.
