Here’s an opposite take on the excellent “11 ways to be unremarkably average” comic by Gavin Aung Than (aka ZenPencils), which was itself inspired by and borrows from a quote by Chris Guillebeau. The funny thing is, if you reverse these warnings and follow the opposite of the steps outlined in that Guillebeau quote, hidden within is perhaps the secret to true happiness or in the very least a guideline on how to live a unique and truly free lifestyle.
Without further adieu, we give you “11 Ways To Be Remarkably Exceptional”:
“11 Ways To Be Remarkably Exceptional” (Modified from original work by: zenpencils)
Whether you’re a graphic artist yourself, or just an office worker in search for more meaning in your life and realizing your full potential, we’d highly recommend you check out his other works for some inspiration.

- HTML5 Radio Tuner (powered by ShoutCast API)
Since I wrote about Skeumorphs last month, I thought I'd include this piece I had worked on. This is an older idea I had that I'd done the initial design for but forgot (ahem... procrastinated) to do the coding for back when I had the idea. The general concept was to replicate the look of...

While this does an excellent job of showing the behind-the-scenes absurdity of big budget Reality TV shows, a better question is why is these types of shows are such big-budget events? People...

Ok, despite similar accusations of monopoly attempts and/or info theft from the likes of Washington Post, NY Times, Reuters, TechCrunch, ZDnet and others; Google-bashing seems like the thing to do.

- Dynamically Resizing an iFrame
iFrames, love them or hate them they are all over the web.
When used properly, they can actually enhance a user's experience for example by embedding multimedia or related content from a separate site, however when used improperly, and they often are, they can be an unsightly nuisance.
Mostly, I try to advocate proper uses of such...
