Jeffrey Zeldman said it best, “Wireframing AJAX is a bitch.”

Quite frankly, I would boil that down a bit further and simply say wireframing is a bitch. That was until recently, when I began playing around with a sweet-as-saccharin web app called Jumpchart. Imagine the irony as you use a slick web app stuffed to the gills with Ajax functionality to create blissfully simple wireframes!

I’ve created an account for myself, and needless to say I have been impressed. I don’t think it’s necessarily going to replace whatever methods you are currently using (you are wireframing, aren’t you?), but it’s pretty darn handy to be able to export to XHTML and CSS files once your done. I particular like Jumpchart because I can immediately work in HTML, where I feel most comfortable, and create things that visually make sense to me right off the bat. Considering I can barely recall how to make use of a pen or pencil, this is a major advantage to me.

Enough blather - go watch the demos, or better yet, mess about with it and tell me what you think.

nyroModal jQuery Plugin

04/13/08 :: by Cédric

Because Fluidesign it’s not only about design…

In current projects we working on, we’re using more and more modal windows to show data or login form.


But I experienced many problems regarding the customization and the debugging.

That’s why I developed a jQuery Plugin which provide many callbacks and the ability to redefine every animation functions.

Everything is documented and you can start use it in your own project.

Don’t wait, check it out and let your feedback here.

More microblogging for me!

I agree with Imran Zaidi, “producing content should be an active process and assembling an audience should be effortless” and “pull the blogger down from the stage and into the crowd. When you flatten the relationship between posts and comments, commenters become publishers in their own right, and content becomes less lonely” and “design isn’t everything, but it’s pretty close”

Imran launced streem which was posted on mashable today. Love the conversation format. Wondering if I signed up? I did.

P.S. I really like “Universe”. Netvibes is using that term now too.
