Front Font

by [PH]

Another way to read

I just altered the theme for my website with a font from Google Font Directory. Wile searching the web for a place to get a Typo to make my blog looks more like more an old newspaper, i discovered this handful Google Code project. This is yet another web service offered by Google for webmasters to enhance website layout with extra typographic model. It uses the Google Font API as a back-end. This is a very simple service to use since all you need is to embed a link to an online CSS style sheet and add tweak your website font styles to mach the ones you linked. This service is actually much easier to embed but offers less flexibility than other javascript solutions like Cufón … It spares you the conversion and embedding of the script in your code but the fonts available trough this tool is are very numerous and may be frustrating for most web designers. Nevertheless i really love this system since it spares me a lot of work and I’m sure it will soon provide a decent alternative to font embedding and javascript 3rd party code… Yet the back-end is similar to Cufón but looks faster and much more reliable to me… I look forward to see the font provided trough this service grow and help webmaster renew the typographic web design with some fresh fonts.

Mail Forward Map V2.61

by [PH]

A 50 mail update to the map. Despite the small amount of info added by this update, it changes the map layout a lot. They are some update policy that i have been using since the beginning of the project that this update helps to pinpoint as artifacts. I would like to delete/reduce the impact of those artifacts by no longer considering single e.mails as nodes … because if this is done, it only adds to the graph ‘s complexity and prevent to clearly render its depth … i will now consider and rework the base file in accordance with those observations … all links will be between persons. no matter if the connection has been used once or more … Every person can only appear once as “emitter” in the source file, no matter how many time or what group of people that person sent mail to. This modification of the database organisation (source file) is a mean of simplification and is a more accurate answer to the initial project direction : render connection, between individual, built by information exchanges.

Hint : red dots = people / blue dots = mail / yellow dots = me / people are ordinated by activity from bottom to top. The more mail they send to the pool and the earlyer and often they take part in the chain, the upper in the map and its hyerarchy they are.

Where am i in the network? People send me e.mail and don’t even know who am i and sometimes i don’t know who they are. when i browse the mail list of unhidden message recipient field, i usually find names of addresses that means something to me but mostly coming from unknown senders. How did they get my mail and how did they ever came to the point that i could be interested? Do they even know who i am, who are the other recipient? This tells a lot on information and more on information network. What is the point? This is some anti-facebook. An un-friendlist.

The map is rendered from a dot language file built up from mail i received and compiled into a png file using graphviz.

Mail Forward Map V2.60

by [PH]

Yet another update to the map of 2009. 100+ addresses and 5 nodes have been added. A lot of evolution in the network is visible around the Gmail address. Actually, this one has been my main address for quite a long time and is more often used than any other. Also note that my wife contributes a lot to the experiment by providing some chained mail to the map.

The current layout is yet quite graphically elegant but lacks clarity. The next update will introduce a new rendering method … much more CPU expensive but clearer to read.
