A List Apart: Articles: Setting Type on the Web to a Baseline Grid

Over the last year or so, there’s been a lot of talk about grid systems and using column grids for website layouts. Mark gave us a lesson plan, Khoi gave us a case study and Cameron gave us a toolkit. The message is clear: we have the browser support, the know-how, and the tools we need to create consistent multi-column grid layouts on the web.

Some good tips and resources for grid layout at A List Apart. Now I just need to find the time to fix this layout.

The Good News About Global Warming

Steve CurwoodI've been a long time listener of Living on Earth on NPR and was pleased to hear Steve Curwood speaking on The Newsmaker Hour on Texas Public Radio. Steve was visiting St. Philip's College, here in San Antonio and presented a great talk on the environment and how we can live in it.

I appreciate the fact that he doesn't insist on a wholesale change in the way we live but promotes a change in where we get our power. Give it a listen on your next commute and think about the large things we can be doing to change the world we live in.
