The Greenest Mag Uses No Paper At All, Geeks to Get Hitched on Twitter
There's a load of great tech news happening out there every day, and, unfortunately, we just can't cover it all. Here are a few of the other noteworthy things we saw today on our never-ending journey through the wild, wild Web.
- Print is dead! Long live the... slide projector? Rotary Magazine is a boutique publication that appropriates old transparencies found on eBay and presents them as a slide-show. Co-creator Jack Maxwell writes on his site that the premier issue "gave an alternative browsing experience, allowing many people to view at the same time and at their own pace." And nary a tree was made to fall. [From: NOTCOT]
- With the iPad hitting stores on Saturday, we're sure to see just as many, if not more, ridiculous peripherals than we still find with the iPhone. But we have to say that the Macally Viewstand looks like it might be a perfectly reasonable first accessory (behind the keyboard dock, of course). It's simple, elegant and can prop your new 'Pad in one of three convenient configurations. Now we just need a killer stylus. [From: Ubergizmo]
- Adobe marketing rep and web design expert Greg Rewis proposed to Stephanie Sullivan two years ago via Twitter. Now, after authoring two CSS manuals together, the geek couple have announced that they will be live-tweeting their nuptials, as well. At 6:00 PM next Thursday, Rewis and Sullivan will tie the knot in front of the entire Internet, plus ten real guests, by churning out 140-character blocks of their vows. We don't have any response to this. [From: Wired]
