Tutorials, done but still not enough. Classes and screencast? I’m shy despite being a teacher. :> But anyway, thank you!

Adding half a second to a search results page can decrease traffic and ad revenues by 20 percent, according to a Google study. The same article reports Amazon found that every additional 100 milliseconds of load time decreased sales by 1 percent. Users expect pages to load in two seconds—and after three seconds, up to 40 percent will simply leave.
Interesting article from A List Apart on web performance. Thank you Lara Swanson for writing this.

We must abandon invisibility as a goal for interfaces; it’s misleading, unhelpful and ultimately dishonest. It unleashes so much potential for unusable, harmful and frustrating interfaces, and systems that gradually erode users and designers agency. Invisibility might seem an attractive concept at first glance, but it ignores the real, thorny, difficult issues of designing and using complex interfaces and systems.
A response to ‘great design is invisible’ culture. Worth a read.
So much interesting links. Powered by his own RSS linkblog engine called, Radio2.

We avoid accepting praise because we fear we will start to believe it and cease to improve. We avoid creating a home because we fear it will make us too content to move, to lay our head on the rolled up sweater of the next opportunity. We avoid taking a job because we fear we will get addicted to the money and never start a company.
As the writer states, “Don’t forget to live”.
The designer’s guide to taking back your profession.

They are on time. On time for work, on time for meetings, on time for the train. They hate wasting their own time, and as a byproduct, anyone else’s.
A great piece of words from Greg Hoy, the CEO of HappyCog Studio.

While the Huffington Post works hard to keep people on the site, the Drudge Report sends them away as quickly as it can. In both cases, people keep coming back. While they are operating on different scales – HuffPo as a multi-million dollar subsidiary of AOL and The Drudge Report as a one-man, home-based operation – both have been able to turn news aggregation and curation into a basis for income and long-term, sustainable businesses.
If you interested in content curation, you might want to read the article.
A millionaire does not have the standing to tell regular people that money is overrated. Graham Hill moved into a smaller apartment and sold some of his stuff. But he sure as fuck didn’t empty his bank accounts. It’s easy not to have material things when you can just buy whatever you need, whenever you need it. “ My space is small. My life is big,” writes Hill. Of course it is! You can buy anything and go anywhere at any time, thanks to your vast wealth! The fact that a millionaire’s “life is big” offers little valuable wisdom to the common person. The presumptuousness is akin to a fat food critic walking out of a restaurant after a huge meal and telling a starving beggar on the curb, “Trust me—you don’t want to eat at this place.”

“So what do we do? We go after the money. We chase it like there’s no tomorrow. And as we do that, we lose time that we could spend having a leisurely dinner or taking a long walk with the love of our life; we lose time we could spend hitting the StairMaster or making a sandwich rather than driving through a fast-food joint for a grease-fest; we lose time we could spend taking classes that might lead us to a career we’d truly enjoy.”
Nicely written. Having more money is nice, but having time to spend with our loved ones is priceless.
Whenever you find yourself with too many tabs, click the OneTab icon to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once.
When your tabs are in the OneTab list, you will save up to 95% of memory because you will have reduced the number of tabs open in Google Chrome.
Highly recommended, if you’re on Chrome like me.

This blog has been around the internet for 7 years. Of course, I did delete the whole content in the middle of 2010, due to some technical issues. But to be exact, I hate WordPress.
On the other hand, infomalaya.my is not mine, despite carrying the initial concept of the original InfoMalaya. To the owner, good luck with that.

Invest your time in the right actions. When you build a great product investors will contact you, so get to work and stop begging for money. “I can’t start, because I don’t have funding” is the lamest excuse not to change your life ever.
