on NPR’s All Things Considered: sex and internet history

by Violet Blue on March 7, 2010

If you’re arriving after hearing/seeing NPR’s All Things Considered on sex and internet history, welcome! You might want to check out this fascinating timeline of sex and the internet, showing in depth a lot more of what we all talked about on the show. You didn’t? Then check out something I worked on for a few weeks, NPR’s Thank Sex For Making The Internet Hot. If you’re a new visitor interested in following my sex column Open Source Sex (mentioned in the feature), my column will no longer appear in the San Francisco Chronicle and will re-appear shortly in another venue. Please stay tuned. Otherwise, enjoy the wonderfully nerdy sexy images in this post by Flash developer Exey Panteleev who had also made video stop-motions of his other (non-erotic) photoshoots here. I’m a big fan: his photos on Flickr even include markup descriptions and tips!

“Put your content into DIVs not TABLEs.”

“Time is a new HTML5 tag that defines time or date, or both.”

Thankfully, both b and strong are still in the HTML5 specification.

of course the first thing dotBen says while looking at this is, “great but that’s the depricated b tag.”

and then he tells me I likely know the person who invented the time tag. harumph.

At last! An easy way to remember proper markup

You know, I do believe that if I used these pictures as illustrations that I could get my HTML students to pay attention in class!
