Over the holidays, I recieved a Kindle 4 and have been really happy with it. One area where I found it to be lacking, however, was its absence of a cover or sleeve, so I looked for something to cover it up. When I found the site for Byrd & Belle, I knew I had found what I was looking for.

Yesterday, some colleagues and I were bandying about the URLs of a few Parallax Scrolling sites as sources of design inspiration. They’re the sort of sites that have been cropping up in the past year that do funky things as you scroll through them. Like this, that, and these over here. I’m not going to give a tutorial on how to build them—you can find those elsewhere. Instead, I want to focus on the the choice of whether or not to use parallax scrolling as a design tool.

In a month, I’ll turn 38 years old.
For my birthday, I’ve decided to forego presents. Instead, I’ve set a goal to raise $1,000 to help fund new Charity: Water projects. $1,000 is enough to help bring water to 50 people who need it. In order to meet that goal, though, I need your help. If you’d like to pitch in—you can donate any amount—it would mean a lot to me, and it would be life-changing for those people who really need clean water.
