720 Common Security Mistakes in Web Applications - Smashing Magazine
Web application developers today need to be skilled in a multitude of disciplines. Itâ€™s necessary to build an application that is user friendly, highly performant, accessible and secure, all while executing partially in an untrusted environment that you, the developer, have no control over. I speak, of course, about the User Agent. Most commonly seen in the form of a web browser, but in reality, one never really knows whatâ€™s on the other end of the HTTP connection.
There are many things to worry about when it comes to security on the Web. Is your site protected against denial of service attacks? Is your user data safe? Can your users be tricked into doing things they would not normally do? Is it possible for an attacker to pollute your database with fake data? Is it possible for an attacker to gain unauthorized access to restricted parts of your site? Unfortunately, unless weâ€™re careful with the code we write, the answer to these questions can often be one weâ€™d rather not hear.
Weâ€™ll skip over denial of service attacks in this article, but take a close look at the other issues. To be more conformant with standard terminology, weâ€™ll talk about Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF), Phishing, Shell injection and SQL injection. Weâ€™ll also assume PHP as the language of development, but the problems apply regardless of language, and solutions will be similar in other languages.
Visualizing.org is a community of creative people working to make sense of complex issues through data and designâ€¦ and itâ€™s a shared space and free resource to help you achieve this goal.
By some estimates, we now create more data each year than in the entirety of prior human history. Data visualization helps us approach, interpret, and extract knowledge from this information. Over the last couple of years, weâ€™ve seen government agencies, NGOs, and companies open up their data for the public to see and use. And weâ€™ve seen data visualization figure more prominently in design curricula, conference programs, and the media. We created Visualizing.org because we want to help connect the proliferation of public dataâ€¦ with a community that can help us understand this dataâ€¦ with the general public.

506 The Sheldons Â» Donâ€™t worry, maâ€™am. Weâ€™re from the Internetâ€¦
Certo. Resolvi abraĂ§ar o papel de uber-geek do grupo, pelo menos no que se refere Ă s coisas menos tĂ©cnicas.
Uma das coisas que mais faĂ§o pela Internet Ă© passear por fĂłruns. De todos os assuntos. Esportes, quadrinhos, cinema, tecnologia, seguranĂ§a. E, em todos eles, o que mais encontro Ă©â€¦.. outros nerds. Como qualquer outro grupo, os nerds tĂŞm expressĂµes prĂłprias, referĂŞncias que sĂł eles entendem. O interessante Ă© que, no caso da Internet, essas referĂŞncias tĂŞm alcance mundial, e se espalham rapidamente.
SĂŁo os chamados Internet Memes.
Na verdade, o termo â€śinternet memesâ€ť pode atĂ© ser usado de forma mais abrangente, significando fenĂ´menos que se iniciam na Internet, e transbordam para a cultura pop, normalmente em funĂ§ĂŁo de serem repetidos em diversas mĂdias.
(pequena pausa para cultura. O termo â€śmemeâ€ť foi criado por um dos meus autores favoritos: Richard Dawkins. Ele Ă© um ateu proeminente, que no livro â€śThe Selfish Geneâ€ť usou o termo â€śmemeâ€ť como referĂŞncia a um grupo de informaĂ§Ăµes culturais)
O sitcom responsĂˇvel pelo nome deste blog, o The Big Bang Theory, volta e meia faz alguma dessas referĂŞncias, mas ele nĂŁo Ă© o Ăşnico. Existem alguns temas que se repetem, principalmente nos fĂłruns, nos comentĂˇrios de blog, nos comentĂˇrios do Digg.com. Normalmente, eles comeĂ§am de alguma forma estĂşpida, alguĂ©m acha engraĂ§ado, repete, e o negĂłcio cresce a olhos vistos (ui!).
370 Welcome, WebM <video>
In February 2007, 1177 days ago to be exact, Opera proposed the <video> element and we published a manifesto for video on the Web. When proposing <video>, we knew there would be two challenges. The first was easy: to get consensus around the syntax. We wanted <video> to be as easy to use as <img>. The second was harder: to find an open and freely-usable high quality video format.
The big news today is that WebM will join the list of open and freely usable Web formats, and video will finally become a first-class citizen of the Web. This is a big deal, and the day will be remembered in the history of the Web. At Opera, weâ€™re proud to add support for WebM into a Labs build â€” you can download this build for:
367 60 Minimal and Super Clean Web Designs to Inspire You | Inspiration
A clean and minimal web design is an effective way to convey an image of elegance and sophistication. This type of design is all about doing more with less, and making use of plenty of white space to let content and page elements breathe.

332 Web Design Trends for 2010 | Webdesigner Depot
Purists will say that great design is timeless. Yes, in an ideal world, we should ignore trends.
Pragmatically speaking, though, there is a lot of value in monitoring and incorporating design trends, especially with regard to websites.
Letâ€™s face it: the web changes at a rapid pace. Unlike in other media, design trends on the web are not just driven by aesthetics.
Technology is changing that can drastically alter the capabilities of the medium.
In 2010, weâ€™re seeing designers continuing to push the boundaries of web design, setting the following clear trendsâ€¦
