I love the movie Princess Bride. Now Cary Elwes (The Dread Pirate Roberts) has written a book about his experience. Check it out.

I’ve been meaning to get more familiar with Susy for Sass grids in my personal projects, but just haven’t yet. Zell Liew wrote up a piece over at CSS-Tricks called Build Web Layouts Easily with Susy that looks like a great primer.

We’ve been seeing more sharks locally, so when I saw this I had to read it. Sharks Are Accidentally Good at Math

Want: Cult movie playing cards.

I just found out about the Responsive Design Podcast, and it’s great. Ethan Marcotte and Karen McGrane do a great job of interviewing people involved in RWD and the hurdles they faced through the process.

I switched up my shaving gear last month and I couldn’t be happier. Harry’s blades were a little odd at first but work great, and the shave cream is fantastic. Grab their Truman Set for $15 and try it out. I might upgrade to a shaving plan now.

“My point is that while we don’t want to overwhelm the user with choice overload, we also need to be careful not to unintentionally remove valuable choices that can empower people. In our quest to make experiences seamless, we run the risk of also making those experiences rigid and inflexible.” - from Seams by Jeremy Keith
