The Slow Death of Internet Explorer and the Future of Progressive Enhancement

My first full-time developer job was at a small company. We didn’t have BrowserStack, so we cobbled together a makeshift device lab. Viewing a site I’d been making on a busted first-generation iPad with an outdated version of Safari, I saw a distorted, failed mess. It brought home to me a quote from Douglas Crockford, who once deemed the web “the most hostile software engineering environment imaginable.” The “works best with Chrome” problem Because of this difficulty, a problem has emerged....

5 things all great company names have in common

Giving the right name to your startup or company is more important than you'd think. A clever and appropriate name can impress your fan base. Conversely, an unoriginal or dull name communicates a lack of enthusiasm toward your business. Thankfully, it's never too late to change a company's name.

An e-commerce website earns or loses business in part based on how quickly it responds. Kissmetrics’ thorough studies on this subject tell us that 40% of online shoppers abandon a site that takes more than 3 seconds to load. As the Aberdeen Group puts it, customers are won or lost in a single second – it was true 10 years ago, and it’s true today. But an e-commerce site’s load times are difficult to accelerate. Pr...

Women-Owned Small Businesses Hit Federal Contracts Milestone

Princess Diana was a style icon, “Seinfeld” ruled the airwaves, and we were just learning our way around the Information Superhighway, a.k.a. the World Wide Web (using Netscape Navigator as our favorite browser). The year was 1994, and the federal government had just set a goal of ensuring that at least 5 percent of federal contracts were awarded to women-owned small businesses. Well, it took more than 20 years, but in 2015, the government finally reached that goal, awarding 5.05 percent of cont...

#40years of educational technology: Networks

In comparative terms, the transition from stand-alone to networked technologies was fairly rapid. The shift happened in the mid 1990s and it certainly took many by surprise.
