My first impressions of the new Singapore street circuit — hosting both its inaugural race and Formula 1’s first ever night race — after witnessing free practise 1 and 2 yesterday.
Let’s see who bags pole position tonight.
The title puts it perfectly. I love movies like this.

As much as I wanted Ferrari to win at yesterday’s Belgian Grand Prix and reduce Hamilton’s lead in the drivers championship, I’ve been disgusted by the stewards’ decision to strip Hamilton of his awesome victory. The great Spa–Francorchamps circuit, a wet start with plenty of overtaking and a crazy finish (again in wet conditions) made this one of the most exciting races of the year. Both Räikkönen and Hamilton put up an awesome fight, all for nothing it seems.
What you leave out is often what turns good into great. What you leave out is the difference between something that is either 1) never seen or used or 2) simple, clear, and actually digestable. It’s true for photography. It’s true for features in software. And it’s true for plenty more too.
Damn right it is. I think editing is one of the most vital tasks when creating anything. This statement by Steve Jobs states just that:
We are proud not only of the products Apple has shipped, but also the products Apple has decided not to ship.
Editing just goes to show you care.
Finally! See you at Chadstone at 10am.
John Siracusa on the aforementioned Chrome, Google’s new web browser. I too think this a great move by Google.
From a web designer’s point of view, Google releasing a WebKit based browser is one of the best bets at reducing IE’s market share by a bigger margin. Even your average mom uses and knows about Google, meaning they’re more likely to try a Google browser than something called FireFox.
I know it’s only in beta but I must admit I was disappointed to see the Chrome team had removed text-shadow support from WebKit. The biggest reason I was excited about Chrome was wider adoption of WebKit. Let’s hope they embrace it completely when they do launch.
