Recent Reading (HTML5, CSS Fonts, JavaScript, rel=nofollow, Google Analytics)

  1. New elements in HTML 5

    An older (2007) article, but still pretty interesting. I’ve been slowing working my way through some HTML5 stuff. This was part of that effort. If, like me, you’re fascinated by where the web is going*, you should definitely check the article out.

  2. Event Tracking Guide

    With event tracking open to everyone we’ve been going nuts with them at work. I’ve also been going nuts with them at home.

    I’m basically smothered in event tracking.

    I’m glad to have it. It saves me from doing non-standard stuff (faking page views) and it saves our analytics analyst the time of having to filter out fake page views from the data.

    Yay Google.

  3. Whiteboard Friday – How Do We Plug the Nofollow Leak?

    This isn’t a read, it’s a video :) But, if you’ve got any interest in SEO, then this discussion of the recent change in the way Google treats rel=nofollow and the way PageRank flows is a must-view.

  4. 8 fonts you probably don’t use in css, but should

    While I’ve been messing with “real” fonts on the web using Cufon, it’s still a hell of a lot easier to just use old school fonts. The referenced article does a great job of pointing out some neglected fonts that might come in handy on a project.

  5. Event delegation in JavaScript

    Attaching an event handler to the document and then delegating based on the target has been on my mind a lot recently. I like the idea and it’s actually come up in two code reviews this week as an alternative to traditional event handling.

    Serendipitous then, that Nicholas Zakas decided to write it up so that I have something fresh to point to when I reference the technique.

*I’m also fascinated by where the web is and where the web has been, so I’m not really picky on those fronts.
