My cousin has just started a new blog focused on food allergies. She has had to become quite the expert on this subject over the past few years, as both of her two young children have life threatening allergies. To make matters more interesting, they aren’t even allergic to the same things! I don’t know how she does it, but she manages to navigate the scary and confusing world of food allergies for her children. And now she’s sharing her knowledge and experiences with the rest of the world!
Very interesting and promising results from a low calorie two week diet…

The ability to give time, energy and professional skills free of charge is a privilege. It is a privilege that not everyone has to begin with, but that we can also lose as our responsibilities increase or as we start to lose the youthful ability to pull all-nighters. Perhaps we begin to realize how much that free work is taking us away from our families, friends, and hobbies; away from work that might improve our situation and enable us to save for the future.
This shouldn’t be a surprise… cool that it has been confirmed through experimentation though.

Val Head published a great article on A List Apart the other day on designing safer web animation for motion sensitivity. It is important to be mindful of all sorts of accessibility issues when designing user interfaces, and concerns surrounding animation should not be forgotten.
A great sounding feature in the upcoming Basecamp. I hope more products start to offer more control over when they notify you of things.
