Quality is a word that a lot of people like to use when describing their web design services. But what is quality, how do you know if a design is quality or not. Well, I think that there’s quite a few ways to spot quality within web designs.
What makes up our world? Dive into this photo-mosaic portrait of the Earth to see it through the eyes of users like you. It's made up of hundreds of photos of the natural world, each submitted by users to My Shot.

How HR reads your resume versus how a programmer reads it
This is just too cool not to share and is worthy of a blog post. From National Geographic comes the “Infinite Photograph“.
Those of us who have enjoyed the National Geographic for years know them for their amazing high quality images. With the Infinite Photograph, from user generated content, you’re presented with a delightful mosaic of images. As you move your cursor over the image, you’ll notice an orange rectangle. (What else?) Click on the image to dig inside the mosiac. You dig and dig and dig and soon you understand why it’s called the infinite photograph.
What an addictive concept. I’ve been playing around with it for some time now and seeing just spectacular images. Instead of single clicking on each, double click to get more information about the individual shot. It’s guaranteed to keep you amused for a while.
Would you like to create your own Mosaic?
Head on over to the Image Mosaic Generator.
Here, you’re invited to upload your own image and the website creates its own mosaic of images for you from images uploaded to Flickr. Again, another inviting and engaging thing to do with your images.
Here’s an image of Beauregard, the wonder Daschund.
If you or your students are digital photographers, all this is worth a followup.
