Oddities – “Lunch on a Skyscraper”
I’ve seen this guy driving around town before and it’s a mighty weird sensation to watch this life-sized string of guys go by on a girder in the middle of traffic. The artist is an ironworker of sorts himself and made this in homage to the immigrants who helped build the skyscrapes of NYC in the 30’s and 40’s.
The website address for the sculptor is sergiofurani.com, in case you’re interested.
Refresh DC October Meeting
Alex Giron and Joshua Lane spoke at October’s meeting on web entrepreneurship. Both individuals have had a great deal of experience building community-based, content-driven websites and dealing with the many issues that well-trafficked sites run in to.
Look at the homepage for Mediabistro. What a mess. Barely any definition between individual posts, hard to tell what’s an ad and what’s not, and their header looks like an ad itself. Their sole brand image sits nestled into a small corner in the upper corner.
Navigation looks like it uses drop downs, but it doesn’t.
Consistent styling is not something they understand, so why would I pony up for a video on "Find out how to drive traffic to your site by making your content as "usable" and enticing as it can be."
