Jeremy Keith has a post on a new visual cue he has developed for Huffduffer, to signal a small change. The change is akin to the visual feedback one gets in Super Mario when scoring points, and I must say, it’s quite well-executed.

‘A web series about dressing like a grownup’.

Jesse Thorn and Adam Lisagor have made this wonderful blog and small-scale tv series about how to properly dress yourself. The first episode (published 2 November) is about denim, and is very well-done. The blog is well-written, and whilst I don’t agree with all the advice (a tweed vest? No thanks), most of the advice is pretty sound.

(Also, they’re looking for funding to continue the series. Yes, I am considering turning this into a Kickstarter promotion blog.)

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
