“I love Typography wallpapers! Who doesn’t? Creatives especially have a thing for typography that is unlike anything you’ll see in designing. As children we are taught letters, the very letters that become such objects of affection when we grow up, that it is sometimes quite amazing to see them affecting adults like that. Letters are powerful, they are beautiful and typography is not just an art, but a religion. For all you type fanatics out there, I give you a fantastic collection of breathtaking typography wallpapers. You will be spoilt for choice!”
Cameron Chapman wrote this article, The Future Of The Web: Where Will We Be In Five Years?. I thought it had some interesting points that I wanted to share with some of my readers. Although many are rather evident the article is still very good. Give it a read and shoot him a comment or two. I especially liked how he incorporated “further resources” into each point. That was a good idea.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent my time in Bowling Green hanging out with one of the worlds best girls!
Forza Motorsport 3 (FM3) finally came out on October 27th, 2009 after years of development. There are few games that I have been more personally excited about. For the Xbox 360 console, there just was not as solid racing game as Grand Tourismo until Forza Motorsport 2. Forza 2 featured hundreds of cars that were upgradeable, realistic tracks and solid racing simulation.
In summary, Forza Motorsport 3 builds on FM2 by adding more tracks, more cars, more car customization, superior graphics engine, improved driving simulation, improved Xbox live capabilities, more single-player game options (drift/drag,etc) and interior driving views of every car.
I was recently introduced to ShowDocument – an online application which enables real-time collaboration and web meetings using various tools. There are a lot of available programs already offering web conferencing solutions , so what’s different about this one?
First of all, using ShowDocument requires only registration, and is entirely web-based – except for a small plug-in you’ll be asked to install in your first session. This online service is currently free and supports different platforms, which can make it an attractive alternative for conducting web meetings.
The main site offers 4 ways to directly open a web meeting and start collaborating – shared documents, whiteboard, text editor or co-browser. These options can also be chosen later from within the application. Inside the program, you have the regular tools that help you write and draw in order to work on documents and images, along with a few unique features. There is a Youtube co-browser, and a Google Maps browser, which simply enables co-browsing google maps (see image), and drawing on them. – apparently it also has a facebook application. The webpages co-browser still needs improvement but has great potential.
ShowDocument has a number of easy and interactive ways to collaborate with co-workers & friends, as seen in the above picture. As you can see, most of ShowDocument’s options are rather self-explanatory, making usage easy, as well as inviting others into the web conference – which can be done by code or link. Its an alternative worth checking out, if you need a light and free application for online collaboration.

I do hope these two links can help you learn the future of email and online collaboration better. Google Wave may be complicated but guides like these sure help.
