New website

I bought "Prioritizing Web Usability (VOICES)", scanned its table of contents and was immediately dissatisfied with my previous website. At around the same time I found the 37signals website again, and loved it. I think those guys do a...

I have been reading a lot of books in preparation for "the big jump". I thought I'd post links here for the ones that I keep going back to, since they might be useful to someone. Keep these within...

Igor Naming Guide

I just read this excellent PDF I found while thumbing through Micro-ISV: From Vision to Reality again in preparation for my meeting with the branding gurus tomorrow. It made me like the name "balsamiq" even more. We'll see what...

balsamiq

So no-one liked WOPStudio, I was never really in love with it either. Plus someone pointed out that WOP doesn't really have very good connotations, given that I'm Italian and all. I had no idea! Anyways, after much thinking...

Web Office Plugins

Today I registered webofficeplugins.com - not a snazzy abstract Web2.0 company name, but it's descriptive and sums up nicely what I'm setting up to build, or at least the niche I'm planning to play in. I'm still not 100%...

Book: “Founders at Work”

I am reading Founders at Work: Stories of Startups' Early Days, a collection of interviews to founders of some pretty famous companies, and some that failed famously like Visicalc. The most interesting thing about the book for me is...

Starting to look into the startupping blogosphere

This reminds me of when I first looked around for parenting blogs...too much information and hard to tell what's good and what's not. Anyways, I found this wiki article pretty useful: Startup Checklist I used "startupping" in the tile...

Website protected

Ok I just learned about .htaccess and used it to password protect the entire site. I feel better now, I'm not ready to have people at work know what I'm doing with my nights and week-ends...yet.
