Skybox Imaging - Skybox Imaging + Google

by sbrothier
We’re thrilled to announce that Skybox Imaging has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Google! Five years ago, we began the Skybox journey to revolutionize access to information about the changes happening across the surface of the Earth. We’ve made great strides in the pursuit of that vision. We’ve built and launched the world’s smallest high­-resolution imaging satellite, which collects beautiful and useful images and video every day. We have built an incredible team and empowered them to push the state­-of­-the-­art in imaging to new heights. The time is right to join a company who can challenge us to think even bigger and bolder, and who can support us in accelerating our ambitious vision.

Kill The Hamburger Button | TechCrunch

by sbrothier
That little three-lined button is the devil. Whether you call it a side menu, navigation drawer, or a hamburger, hiding your features off-screen behind a nondescript icon in the corner is usually a poor mobile design choice. Interaction theory, A/B tests, and the evolution of some of the top apps in the world all support the same thesis: The hamburger button is bad for engagement, and you should probably replace it with a tab bar or other navigation scheme.

Le tool-book » NellyRodiLab

by sbrothier
Quand certains parient sur la fin des livres, d’autres préfèrent leur donner une nouvelle fonction ; alors, les pages ne deviennent plus le support des mots mais se transforment en objet utilitaire. Water is Life lui a même donné une fonction de premier ordre : avec ses pages qui ont la capacité de filtrer l’eau non potable, son ‘Drinkable Manuel’ peut rendre l’eau consommable pour quelques euros.

Basics of CSS Blend Modes | CSS-Tricks

by sbrothier
Bennett Feely has been doing a good job of showing people the glory of CSS blend modes. There are lots of designerly effects that we're used to seeing in static designs (thanks to Photoshop) that we don't see on the web much, with dynamic content. But that will change as CSS blend modes get more support. I'd like to look at the different ways of doing it, since it's not exactly cut and dry.

Quietest Show on Earth

by gregg
The idea was to host a series of intimate acoustic performances in the middle of national parks for tiny audiences of just ten people per show, and then use the content created from these exclusive experiences to raise support for the park system. By collaborating with musicians Andrew Bird and Tift Merritt for the inaugural show, we were able to breathe new life and relevance into this issue.
