Nythbusters at the White HouseGizmodo had their favorite line from President Obama’s recent speech about his “‘Educate to Innovate‘ campaign to improve the participation and performance of America’s students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).”  My own personal fav came from the President’s introduction of the Mythbusters crew:

“Welcome Mythbusters from the Discovery Channel…where are they? There they are. I hope you guys left the explosives at home.”

Geek in Chief, indeed.

Design your own homepage

November 24, 2009 at 8:52 am | Posted in tech | Leave a comment

Now’s tje chance to put your brand new Fireworks skills to work.  Think about building a homepage. For almost anything.  It could be about you, a favorite band, a class, a movie….the list is endless.  Here are the details:

1. Open up Fireworks and create a new image that is 900×600 pixels.

2. Do some deep thinking.  What’s your page going to be about?

3. Gather images for your design.  Look textures by searching Google images for “rock texture” or “beach sand texture”.  Click here for inspiration.

4. Add at least three FAKE buttons (they won’t go anywhere) to your homepage.

5. Use images, fonts and textures to create an engaging design. Break out of the typical boxy web layout.  Be free.
