Your Best Business Insurance

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Introduction

Brendon SinclairFellow SitePoint Tribune editor, Brendan Sinclair, is currently cycling his way across Australia (4,500 kilometers in just 30 days!), so there’s no better time than now to discuss health and wellness.

I’m not someone who could ride across an entire continent, but as a business owner who spends more than my fair share of hours behind a computer, I value that small amount of physical activity that I manage to make time for. So this week, let’s look at ways to avoid that behind-the-desk physique–without riding across Australia.

We’ll kick off by discussing your health and wellness and the direct importance it has to your business. Then, we’ll dig into the SitePoint archives to uncover some great reading to further this theme, and touch on a Tokyo hospital as well.

We’ll check out nine great ways to spend a lunchbreak in the service of your wellbeing instead of more work (trust me, the benefits are huge and I’m sure you can make the time), before asking for your own social networking stories.

First up, though–have you completed the Tribune survey yet? If you haven’t, you’ll miss the opportunity to snag a free Web Design Business Kit 2.0–so make sure you get your entry in by Friday!

Enjoy the reading!

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

BY Kevin Tyler Smith

A person who cannot prioritize gets stuck with more choices than he can handle.  Without this skill, it can become excruciatingly difficult to make small steps and achieve a goal – any goal.  This is especially true in online business, when the work load can be a killer and schedules can be grueling.  To top it all, there are dozens of tasks that need to be completed, all at the same time.  Learn how prioritizing will help improve your online business and increase your bottomline:  (more…)

Easy Vector Graphics with the Raphael JavaScript Library

Introduction

Kevin YankWith the possible exception of the Watchmen trailer, I don’t remember a comic book ever stopping the web community in shock. The surprise unveiling of Google Chrome yesterday—in comic book form—did just that.

Google leaked news of the browser yesterday by releasing a comic book (by comics legend Scott McCloud) describing the design decisions that went into the new browser.

For users, Chrome is a brand new web browser with blazing fast load times and a minimalist interface, designed to highlight page content over (ironically) browser chrome. Customary browser features are tucked away behind clever user interface elements, most of which are easily discoverable as you need them.

For developers, Chrome uses the same WebKit rendering engine as Safari, but bundles its own screaming fast JavaScript engine, called V8. The browser’s common ancestry with Safari will help to reduce the testing burden on developers of a whole new browser, but when testing is required, Chrome includes a DOM/CSS inspector, an HTTP profiler, and a JavaScript debugger.

A beta of Chrome is now available for Windows, with a Mac version under development. For more on Chrome, check out Josh Catone’s preview on sitepoint.com.
