Gruber slams the DiggBar

leave a comment »

He’s pissed, and so am I.  Before I begin, I’d just like to say I like Digg, it’s a great network for finding out what’s popular and an invaluable tool in addition to (GASP!) newspapers for blog sources.  

Before I had a blog I posted several items every day using Digg, but this is just wrong.  It’s 2009, anything remotely resembling a frameset has to go. If you’re going to provide a URL shortening service, follow the leader: TinyURL (as much as I hate them for the potential security risks involved with it) is URL shortening done right.

NYT: US Airways Flight 1549 Graphic

I love when the Times does these things.  They have the integration of reporting and technology down to a science.  The guys at CSTV should pay particular attention, after they dismantled the USC Athletics site beyond recognition with possibly the worst use of AJAX ever; even though almost all collegiate athletics departments who outsource their sites seem to suffer from the same problem.  This is Flash done the right way.
