The Crisis of Credit Visualized

The Crisis of Credit is a fantastic example of informational graphics at its best. The project was created by Jonathan Jarvis as part of his thesis work in the Media Design Program at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

The video (below) does an artful job of exampling the credit crisis. The visuals are essential in the explanation of the credit crunch.

Readability Bookmarklet

Recently, since I can’t stand reading articles on websites with bad type and flashing articles everywhere, I’ve taken to actually saving the pages and writing some quick CSS rules to reformat the text in to something readable. As it turns out, there are some other people as crazy as me that took the time to create a bookmarklet to reformat web pages. Readability has been tested on several major websites and really helps out. It doesn’t always work, but works quite well most of the time. You can read more about the bookmarklet on the website.

The New Pepsi Logo

Quicklook for markdown

Awesome plugin for Quicklook which allows you to view markdown documents in a formatted style. This is really nice. I’ve taken to storing a lot of my documents in markdown, since I like using plain text files, but find the formatting in markdown a lot easier to use.
