    (Read coverage of day one and day two of the SXSW festival.) Here are our highlights from day three, with contributions from Lucas Chan: The Growth And Evolution Of Microformats Moderated by the most active evangelist of microformats, Tantek Çelik, I was hoping this wouldn’t be another “introduction to microformats” talk.

  3. SXSW Interactive 2007: Day Two

    (Read SitePoint’s coverage of day one of the SXSW festival.)

  8. Usability Double-whammy!

    Usability. We think we know what the word means, but many people struggle to define or describe it. Of course, we always know when something is usable, because it feels “intuitive”. And we certainly know when something is not usable, as it frustrates the heck out of us. We might read a bit about the […]
