Random Internet Awesomeness

I’m fine-tuning my remaining SXSWi wrap-up posts (I’m planning to post them later this week).

In the meantime, enjoy the random internet awesomeness that’s caught my attention as of late:

The 960 Grid System; similar to my favorite CSS framework, Blueprint CSS. I haven’t tried it yet, so I can’t say how it’s any better or worse.

A while back, Microsoft signed up with CP+B to the tune of $300 million; it seems the fruits of CP+B’s creative efforts are beginning to bloom. Part warm-and-fuzzy, part jackass (although not necessarily at the same time.)

Noted for (mostly for my) future CSS reference: using Opacity vs RGBA.

Every episode of South Park, ever. Nice. Similar to The Daily Show’s extensive archive.

Squirrels network like Facebook friends – not that they’ve mastered computers or anything, but it’s probably just a matter of time.

One thought on “Random Internet Awesomeness

  1. 960 is nice. I think he’ll get alot of play considering he has a great grid example page. This, like Blueprint can be a little hard to get your head around if you can’t actually see the grid. When I first used Blueprint, I ended up creating my own in Photoshop just to help play around with the layout. The Blueprint “generator” is the only thing I see topping this one. Excellent find though.

    Funny how the web design community is coming to the same conclusion all at once. Layout – Back to basics.
