Annotation is Now a Web Standard

This sure is exciting news: the various groups that make up the W3C have agreed upon a set of rules by which we’ll be able to annotate, highlight and make comments to a webpage without the need of a third party script or framework. Dan Whaley describes why this could be a big deal: The W3C standards are a key milestone towards a future in which all pages could support rich layers of conversation without requiring any action by their publishers—because that capability can be built into the browser itself and be available as a native feature, just like like web search. The shared vision is that conversations will be able happen anywhere on the Web, or even on documents in native apps, and inline instead of below-the fold, in a federated, standards-based way.

Responsive Images in WordPress with Cloudinary, Part 2

In Part 1 of this series, I provided some background on responsive images, describing how you can add srcset and sizes attributes to an img element to serve appropriately sized image files to users of a website based on the size and capabilities of their browser and device. I also shared how WordPress used its native image resizing functionality to implement srcset and sizes automatically and how you can use an external image service like Cloudinary to extend the native implementation that WordPress provides. Article Series: An Intro to Responsive Images and WordPress A WordPress Plugin integrating Cloudinary and Responsive Images (you are here!) In this installment, I go into more detail about how image resizing in WordPress works. I explain how I used built-in WordPress hooks along with Cloudinary’s application programming interface (API)—and its PHP integration library—to create a WordPress plug‑in that offloads responsive image resizing and optimization to Cloudinary.…

Are you looking for an answer or are you asking about impact?

The question has everything to do with the answer“What’s one thing you love about Basecamp?”“What’s the one thing you like least about Basecamp?”“If you could change one thing about Basecamp, what would it be?”“Would you recommend Basecamp to a friend or colleague?”We’ve asked these questions before. They’re ok, but ultimately they’re pretty self-serving. We wanted people to talk about us. What are we doing well, poorly, etc. We were getting answers. That’s what most companies are after when they ask questions — they’re looking for answers about themselves.But answers are easy to come by. What’s more interesting is impact and outcomes. What kind of impact is Basecamp having on people’s lives? What’s changing for the better at companies that run on Basecamp 3? That’s what I really wanted to know.So on our latest survey we shifted the question outward. If you want to get people talking, ask them about themselves.So we asked “What’s changed for…

4 Metrics CEOs Use to Grow Their Companies

CEOs have the responsibility of growing a company. With mountains of available data, they use metrics to focus on the greatest sources of successes and opportunities. Metrics are objective data points that provide insight about the status of a company. There are many types of metrics: financial metrics, sales metrics, engagement metrics, production metrics, cost metrics, retention metrics, and on and on. But which ones does a CEO focused on growth focus on? Greg Lisiewski, CEO of Blispay, a fintech startup offering a mobile-centric credit card, said, “As a founder of a rapidly growing startup sitting on top of a mound of data that’s flowing constantly, I pay close attention to our acquisition funnels such as traffic and conversion. I track the acquisition / usage metrics daily, sometimes hourly. This allows me to keep a pulse on the business while trusting that various teams are analyzing data more targeted at…

The Annoying Mobile Double-Tap Link Issue

We had a question come up the other day on ShopTalk about regular ol’ anchor links on iOS, and some weird situation where you couldn’t just tap them once to go to the link, it required tapping the link twice. I’ve experienced this myself and have been pretty confounded. My first thought was there was some kind of bizarre unexpected JavaScript happening. Perhaps a click handler with preventDefault() on that first click and then getting removed. I couldn’t find anything like that happening though. I’m sure I tried a few more things, but ultimately gave up and used FastClick to make sure those link clicks worked. FastClick wasn’t meant to solve this problem, it’s more to solve the 300ms delay for tapping links that some mobile browsers impart so they can wait to see if you’re doing a double tap (note: not as much of a problem as it once…
