Diving into Roots today

(Thanks for the mention, way back when, +Jacques J.J. Soudan. Have you explored it much yet?)

This linked article recommends starting with examining and making child themes off of the default WP themes and after being comfortable with them, only going to Roots. Sounds like perfect timing for me. Not too soon and not too late.

I may not pull it into my production quite yet, but when the benefits outweigh what I'm currently using, that's when I see myself using roots as a standard theme to create a child theme from. 

When I tried this out previously, I found I couldn't go back to another theme afterwards without a lot of headache. I'm curious about the compatibility of moving away from Roots is these days.

If you had the task of redesigning US Currency, what direction would you take?

If you had the task of redesigning US Currency, what direction would you take? Would you ditch all current convention or remix something we already use?

The Letter Society took on that task. Here is some of the re-imagined currency.

(Personally, I like what Jenn DiMenna did.)

I like the new “Made in Britain” logo

I especially like that it points to the word "Britain" and has a modern feel to it. It's instantly understandable that an object bearing this is made in Britain. Nice job!

This sounds just about right!

Please, if you're a business and your website is Flash-based, you may want to reconsider what your audience wants, and not just what you want. One of my favorite restaurants still has a slow-loading Flash-based site, which makes quickly finding their daily special a real task.

Instead, look to get information to your visitors quickly, efficiently and with style.

(Thanks for sharing, +John Calderas!)
