Link Drop for the Week Ending in Friday the 31st (October 2008) | DesignNotes by Michael Surtees

Link Drop for the Week Ending in Friday the 31st (October 2008)

Antrepo-Design-Industry

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
For this Halloween edition of Link Drop™ you’ll notice that I tried my best to ignore that today is October 31st. With that out of the way this week is heavily influenced with what me and a lot of others at Daylife have been working on for some time. There’s two or three posts below that talk about what Daylife Select is, and how it’s going to change things once it’s rolled out next week. I’ll have a nice post about it after the switch has been flipped – but until then I’ll let others explain what it is. Whether it was intentional or not there’s a lot of other interactive stuff that’s also been included in this drop. And finally I think this was the biggest drop so far – I had to edit it down actually. Thanks to all those that sent me in stuff to look at. Enjoy your day and be sure to treat someone, tricks are for kids after all.
